Chiefs 20 @ Patriots 27

Patriots have had so many injuries that I'm hoping by some miracle the Chiefs will beat'em.

If they're decently healthy with Brady, Gronk, and Edelman, they should be fine.

Packers 20 @ Cardinals 26

I'm just happy the Packers got this far.

Anything can happen, but there's nothing to indicate this should go much differently than it did a couple weeks ago.

Seahawks 24 @ Panthers 31

The Seahawks scare me.

Toughest game to pick. But I think Carolina is good enough.

Steelers 16 @ Broncos 23

My pick is dependent on the status of Roethlisberger's shoulder/arm area.

Pittsburgh will be without so much of what makes them good on offense. I don't think this will be close.

Sarah's sentiments about the Packers-Cardinals game are sad, yet indicative of how far the Packers fell this year, and are likely shared by most Packer fans (me included). Coming off of the worst Conference Championship Game collapse in NFL history (they had a 2 possession lead and the ball with 4 minutes left!!!!), the feeling going into the 2015 season was probably the most "Super Bowl or Bust" mentality any team has had in recent memory, both from the Packers and the players. Fans saw Super Bowl 50 as the Packers to lose. Then Nelson went down, and what ensued was a less than stellar Rodgers performance, receivers not filling in for the missing pro bowler, an offensive line that struggled all season, and a team that went from "Super Bowl or Bust" to "yea...we won a wild card game". It was satisfying that they didn't get bounced in the first round, but that my expectations went from the highest possible to "at least they'll finish in the top 8" is quite depressing when I look back and think about it. So, perhaps I'll just stop thinking about it.

The Packers were the underdogs and the road team in 2010, but I don't think there are too many people who are going to be calling them the "best team in the NFL" like some provocatively did going into the 2010 playoffs.

Also, as a random note, in the last 6 playoff seasons, the Packers have held the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 seeds (not in that order).

Well, the league couldn't let the narrative of the Miracle in Motown go unfulfilled, right?

Also, the head ref for the Packers-Cardinals game has a tendency to call penalties on DBs tighter than others (according to Kevin Seifert of ESPN), which means that there could be a lot of passing penalties*. Also, according to Seifert, Clete Blakeman's crew was fairly lenient on offensive holding (called the 2nd fewest in the league). Green Bay had the 5th most offensive holding calls, Arizona had the fewest offensive holding calls against them.

Basically, my point is that they are basically just handing this game to the Packers under the guise of them being 7 point underdogs.


*On an interesting note, the Packers and Cardinals are 1-2 in ranking of beneficiaries on passing penalties. The Packers had the fewest against them while the Cardinals were league average.

The one thing, Jon, that would indicate that this game could go differently than the one 3 weeks ago is that in the game 3 weeks ago, the Packers were down 3 of their starting 5 offensive lineman. They moved Josh Sitton to left tackle for the first time in his career, and by the end of the game they were literally down to 5 offensive lineman that weren't marked as "Out". Rodgers got sacked 8 times, gave up 2 fumbles that were returned for touchdowns. In this game, it appears that everyone on the O-line is healthy. Will it make a difference? Who knows? But it is a somewhat significant difference in personnel.
