Week 13


1. (1) Seattle Seahawks
Ents
Record 11-0

Seattle continue to win and come out on top against the Dolphins 31-14. In a game where the Seattle defense intercept Tannehill three times and keep him to 0 TDs. The tandem of Lynch-Thomas keeps on chugging as they both rack up over 100 yards on the ground. Seattle have stated that while they would like to win their main focus is the Super Bowl and doesn't really care if they lose now at the end of the season when they've locked up a playoff berth. It'll be interesting how long the starters will play. This week the Seahawks travel to New England and face the Pats which would be their first non-preseason match up in ELY!




2. (5) Carolina Panthers
AllstaRF911
Record 9-2

Carolina hop up into our #2 spot as they beat the Falcons 51-49. It was much closer than usual as Geno Smith threw for 388 yards, 6TDs and 2 INTs. The Panther defense hold the Falcons to just 31 yards rushing on the day as they clog up all the gaps for Petrovich. This week the Panthers take on the 2-9 San Diego Chargers at home. Should spell easy victory for the surging Panthers as they've affirmed themselves 1st in ppg, passing yards and total yards per game and also being 3rd in rushing yards per game.




3. (6) Tennesse Titans
deuce1413
Record 9-2

The Titans win over the Lions 31-21 and jump up in the Power Rankings. They intercepted Stafford three times while relying on CJ2k to carry the ball 21 times for 200 yards and 3 TDs. Great job by the star that seems to have found his way again. This week the Titans go to the Twin Cities to face the Vikings and it should be a good match up as both teams look playoff bound.




4. (7) Denver Broncos
zigzag
Record 9-2

The Broncos win over the Colts 48-20 in a game where the Bronco defense pummeled Andrew Luck. He got intercepted five times, with Chris Johnson & Von Miller grabbing two each, as well as sacking him three times. Peyton has a good day, throwing for 367 yards and three TDs + 2 INTs. This week the Broncos face the Dolphins in a game which is well underway as this report is getting out. Both teams look to capitalize on the AFC Playoff seeds.




5. (8) Kansas City Chiefs
texasaggies2013
Record 9-2

The Chiefs come out on top in an exceptional win against the Patriots were it looked like the Pats coaching staff went home late in the game and the Chiefs capitalized with a late onside kick and went up by 36-35. Kansas City pick up the pace now and take a step up in the Rankings. They now look to face the Raiders which shouldn't bee to hard.




6. (9) Philadelphia Eagles
Xedo19
Record 9-2

Philadelphia show strength by beating the #2 Seeded Bengals and now pave the way for a playoff run. They win 20-17 in a game where Foles played very well, throwing 17/20, 209 yards for a TD and no INTs. He might hold onto the ball a bit long though as he took four sacks on the day. Nevertheless, they stopped Gio Bernard as he only got 8 carries for 63 yards. This week the Eagles take on the Cowboys who just lost.




7. (2) Cincinnati Bengals
Qroze
Record 10-1

The Bengals lose to the Eagles 17-20 and therefore drop in the Rankings. At the end of the year it's important to hold together and the Bengals couldn't vs the Eagles defense. Gio Bernard had a bad day which couldn't be saved by Dalton's throwing. We must ask us if the fact that they've secured the playoff berth already made them lax and doesn't really care about winning out? They aren't unbeaten anymore. This week Cincinnati take on the Ravens and it'll be interesting if they will focus on the playoffs.




8. (3) Miami Dolphins
t_wells94
Record 10-1

The Dolphins lose to the Seahawks 14-31. Dolphins who have the 2nd best passing game in the league didn't really find a rhythm in their passing game as Tannehill threw three INTs and no TDs on 18 attempts.The stout Seattle D proved too much on this day and for the Dolphins but they can breathe easy as the Patriots who are chasing them also went home with an L. This week the Dolphins play the Broncos which is very important. It's a game that is currently underway and it's going to be interesting to see if the 'fins can bounce back.



9. (4) Minnesota Vikings
alonepants
Record 9-2

The Vikes lose their second game on the year as they fall to the Jags in an upset. 20-21 was the FInal score as the Vikings lose the turnover battle 1-0. It was truly a defensive game and despite the Vikings holding the Jags to only 243 total yards over their 409 they fall. Good ball management and protection of the ball wins the game. This week Minnesota play another ranked team in the Tennessee Titans and they need to come away with a win if they want to keep any momentum.




10. (10) New England Patriots
Rox
Record 7-4

The Patriots thought they had won their game against the Chiefs but a last minute onside and score made them lose 35-36. Even though Manziel had a good day, throwing for 268 yards and 5 TDs to 1 INT they didn't manage to come away with the victory despite leading in both rushing and passing yards on the day. They now risk falling out of the top 10 Power Rankings as they now have teams breathing down their neck. They have a tough match up against the Seahawks which they are underdogs but really need to get going.

Week 15

Post by Rox on Thu Jun 26, 2014 6:21 pm

Week 15


1. (1) Seattle Seahawks
Ents
Record 13-0

The Seahawks affirm their first spot in the final stretch by beating the Jets 41-6 and improving to 13-0. Russell Wilson had a good day, throwing for over 300 yards and 3 TDs while Marshawn Lynch got the workload today with 144 yards and a TD. The 'Haws now face the 49ers as they look to finish off the season on a good note undefeated. Will the Seahawks ever rest their starters?




2. (7) Cincinnati Bengals
Qroze
Record 12-1

The Bengals beat the Giants 75-35 and roll into 2nd place with a 12-1 record. Even though they aren't top 4 in any yardage category they grab the 2nd spot by a strong showing from Dalton & Bernard together. Dalton's favorite target, A.J. Green has racked up 1222 yards on the season and is looking to close in on 1500 before the playoffs. This week the Bengals have a tough match up against the 3rd ranked Titans and it'll be interesting to see who'll come out on top.




2. (3) Tennesse Titans
deuce1413
Record 10-3

The Titans beat the Colts 28-14 and grab our 3rd spot in the Rankings! Tennessee put on a great display where they double the total yards of the colts and rely on CJ2k to get them there. 189 yards on 12 carries and three TDs is his stat line today. This week the Titans play the Bengals which should be a good one. Let's see if the Titans will continue to roll and beat Bengals.




4. (4) Denver Broncos
zigzag
Record 11-2

The Broncos clock in at fourth on our Power Rankings as they squeak by the Chiefs 27-24! With the exciting Manning/Brady match up Manning has the edge as he throws for 205 yards and a TD while also rushing five times for 40(!) yards and a TD. Who knew that would come as he proves to be the leading rusher for the Broncos on the day. The Broncos now take the lead in the AFC West and look to keep the Chiefs behind them in the final few games. Next up? Falcons.




5. (6) Philadelphia Eagles
Xedo19
Record 11-2

The Eagles prove they are playoff ready and look to make a push this year as they come off a strong 52-17 victory against the Browns. Nick Foles threw for 300 yards and 4 TDs and an INT before letting Jake Locker see the field and letting him throw three INTs and a TD. This week the Eagles take on the Redskins, and it shouldn't be a problem for a team gearing up for the playoffs.




6. (8) Miami Dolphins
t_wells94
Record 11-2

The Dolphins beat the Rams and clinch a playoff spot by winning the AFC East for a 2nd time in a row! The Dolphins sit 2nd in passing yards per game while sitting 5th in rushing yards/game and 2nd in total yards which speaks volumes for the Dolphins' offense as they now can focus on the playoffs. This week they take on the Patriots who are chasing a playoff spot and it'll be interesting who comes out on top.




7. (9) Minnesota Vikings
alonepants
Record 10-3

The Vikings win over the Texans as they clinch a division win and a playoff spot! They beat the Texans 29-16 and they now turn their faces toward the Packers who they take on this week. It's an intradivisional match up and even though the Vikes have won their division Green Bay look to grab a wild card spot in the final games. It's going to be interesting to see if the Vikings will rest AP for the playoffs or if they will go all in.




8. (5) Kansas City Chiefs
texasaggies2013
Record 10-3

The Chiefs lose to the broncos in a close one and they now trail in the Standings. Even though Jamaal Charles got 21 carries for 133 yards and they keep the Broncos to 69 total rushing yards they lose 24-27. Now the Chiefs hope someone else beats the Broncos as they face the 3-10 Steelers this week.




9. (2) Carolina Panthers
AllstaRF911
Record 10-3

Panthers seem in turmoil as the latest news from the Carolina camp is that the coaching staff left for a coaching job in the CFL! We have yet to confirm or deny these rumors but we saw the surging Panthers get hit by a PED scandal and subsequently lose to the Falcons 12-17! What will happen with the defending Super Bowl champs? Is their season over? No one knows yet and we'll see what happens in the final weeks.




10. (-) Jacksonville Jaguars
thegrog
Record 8-5

The Jags beat the Patriots 24-14 in a game where the Patriots fumble the ball four times and the Jags capitalize by showing them that they are the more hungry team! They now have the final playoff spot in the AFC as they look to keep the Pats away from them. This week Jacksonville play the Texans which should be interesting but probably a good match up for the Jaguars as they now look to make the playoffs!

Week 16

Post by Rox on Sat Jun 28, 2014 8:31 am

Week 16


1. (1) Seattle Seahawks
Ents
Record 14-0

The Seahawks crush the San Fransisco 49ers 56-7 in a game where  the Seattle defense held the '9ers to only 142 total offensive yards. The picked off Kaepernick three times and relied of the Beastmode/DAT tandem to carry them to victory. Well played and a strong showing going into the final two games. Seattle sit with the best rushing game in the league as well as the best defense they now play the 3-11 Bears. Is it time to sit the starters yet?




2. (2) Cincinnati Bengals
Qroze
Record 13-1

The Bengals get a win over the titans in a very important match up. The final score was 56-20 and the brunt of the workload fell on Gio Bernard's shoulders as he carried the ball 20 times for 241 yards. The Bengal defense roughed Chatam up as well, intercepting him three times and sacking him four. This week the Bengals take on another playoff bound team in the Chiefs and it should be interesting who will come out on top at the end.




3. (4) Denver Broncos
zigzag
Record 12-2

The Broncos beat the Falcons by one point and manage to pull out a victory as well as climb a position in the Power Rankings. Peyton Manning took his team on his shoulders and threw for 407 yards and two TDs as their rushing game was not so prominent on the day. The Broncos look to hold off the chasing Chiefs and they should have an easy task this week as they take on the 3-11 Steelers who are just coming off a loss to the Chiefs.




4. (5) Philadelphia Eagles
Xedo19
Record 12-2

Philadelphia beat the Redskins 51-24 in a game where Nick Foles throws for 302 yards and 4 TDs to no INTs. LeSean McCoy added 148 yards on the ground and the Eagles defense also chipped in by picking off RG3 three times. The Eagles now face the Falcons in Atlanta and with another victory they clinch a first round bye for the playoffs so it should be a good game this Sunday!




5. (6) Miami Dolphins
t_wells94
Record 12-2

The Dolphins beat up the Patriots 21-15 and dash all playoff hopes for the guys in New England. They completely shut down Manziel by intercepting him five times. Even though Lamar Miller couldn't get going on the ground the defensive display manage to put them ahead as they also tack on a recovered muffed punt. This week Miami heads to Buffalo to play the Bills who are last in the AFC East. It shouldn't be too hard as the Dolphins fight to get a first round bye.




6. (3) Tennesse Titans
deuce1413
Record 11-3

The Titans lose to the #2 ranked Bengals 20-56 in a game where Chris Johnson couldn't get going on the ground. 83 yards on the day for him which was mostly due to a 53 yard breakthrough. Luke Chatam threw three picks and had a 54% completion rate on the day. The Titans now have to reload as they only need one victory to clinch a division win and this week they play the Colts which should be an easy match up.




7. (8) Kansas City Chiefs
texasaggies2013
Record 11-3

Kansas City bounce back with a commanding victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ryan Succop was the best scorer of the day as he booted in three filed goals and added 3 extra points to make the final score 30-3. The Chiefs defense held the Steelers rushing to a minimum and they added a pick to their total as well. The Chiefs have already clinched a playoff spot but they are in the hunt for the divisional title as they are one game behind the Broncos. This week the chiefs have a very important and tough match up against the Bengals who are the number one team in the AFC.




8. (9) Carolina Panthers
N/A
Record 10-3-1

No Coaching? No Problem! The Panthers somehow get a tie against the Cowboys with a non-existent coaching staff and an ownership that doesn't seem to want to touch the Panthers with a stick. The Final score was 23-23 but the big question is if the Panthers will do anything before the playoffs as they clinch their division with that tie. The Panthers are still first in points per game, passing yards per game and total yards per game as well as being second in rushing yards per game. What is to happen? This week they play the Redskins.




9. (7) Minnesota Vikings
N/A
Record 10-4

The Vikes lose to the Packers 24-45 which might raise some eyebrows but isn't that surprising as they have clinched their division and decided to give AP a lesser workload heading into the final weeks to not get him injured. 6 carries for 20 yards was his final stat line for the day and the Vikings now play the Lions. The Vikings is another team that lack coaching and it should be noted that two playoff teams in the NFC stand without direction.




10. (10) Jacksonville Jaguars
thegrog
Record 9-5

Jaguars have made their playoff push and it's coming into fruition as they beat the Texans 42-10! Tyrod Taylor completes the game with a perfect passer rating as 14 of his 15 passes were on target and he threw for 4 TDs and 264 yards. The Rushing game wasn't spectacular but decent as the Jags amass 97 yards rushing on the day. The Jags now only have to win one game to clinch the last playoff spot in the AFC and this week they play the Packers.

Week 17

Post by Rox on Fri Jul 04, 2014 8:53 am

Week 17


1. (1) Seattle Seahawks
Ents
Record 15-0

As another season draws to it's end another undefeated streak from the Seahawks is almost unbroken. They beat the Bears 45-7 in a game where Lynch & Thomas combined for 323 yards on the ground. Russell Wilson only had to throw five times and the victory was a fact. This week the Rams play the Cardinals who are pushing for a wildcard spot. The Seahawks have clinched the #1 seed and it'll be interesting to see if they value health over undefeated!




2. (2) Cincinnati Bengals
Qroze
Record 14-1

The Bengals beat the Chiefs in a close 31-24 outing. Gio Bernard got the rock 23 times and did well. The Bengals defense picked off Brady three times and held him TD-less. Cincinnati now looks to clinch the #1 saeeed in the AFC by beating the Browns at home. It's going to be interesting as the Bengals is a #2 ranked team with no offensive yardage stat in the top 5!




3. (4) Philadelphia Eagles
Xedo19
Record 13-2

The Eagles move up into third place on our Power Rankings and we must recognize the fact that the last time the Eagles were in the top 3 was Week 12 last season! The Eagles beat the Falcons 45-22 in a game where the Eagles defense force 6(!) turnovers on the day. LeSean McCoy saw limited work in only 12 carries but did the most of it and went off for 140 yards. This week the Eagles play the 5-10 Giants and it should be easy on paper to clinch a #2 Seed in the NFC.




4. (5) Miami Dolphins
t_wells94
Record 13-2

Miami move into the number four spot on the Power Rankings by beating the Bills 44-13. Now they look to win their final game to clinch a #2 seed at the least. If the Bengals lose they might manage a #1 Seed but never the less they will earn a first round bye with a victory. The 'Fins play the 49ers as they sid top 5 in all the yardage categories as well as points per game. On paper they should have an easy victory and secure the first round bye.




5. (6) Tennesse Titans
deuce1413
Record 12-3

The Titans bounce back from their loss with a eight point victory over the Colts. The final score was 28-20 in a game where protests were handed in on both sides after the game and we've had word that the front offices of the two organizations are not on speaking terms anymore. Game-wise the Titans showed that the ground was theirs as they hold T-Rich and Isaiah Pead to only 45 yards of rushing while the titans rushed for over 130 yards on the day. The Titan defense sacked luck twice and picked him off thrice as they now look to capitalize going into the playoffs. They have the chance for a 1st round bye if the Dolphins lose but realistically the Titans will play a wildcard game. This week they play the Raiders.




6. (3) Denver Broncos
zigzag
Record 12-3

The Broncos lose to the then 3-11 Steelers in a major upset 22-30 and subsequently drop in the Power Rankings. The Broncos turn the ball over two times which much be attributed to their loss as the Steelers was turnover free. The Broncos now are one game behind in the first round bye race and have to rely on an Eagle loss to get back in that territory. Luckily the Chiefs also lost so the Broncos still have the division lead. This last week Denver play the Chargers and it'll be interesting if they can hold it together.




7. (8) Carolina Panthers
N/A
Record 11-3-1

The Panther STILL have no coached and STILL they rise in the Power Rankings?! We have no idea how they are pulling this off but the skill and heart of the players in Carolina is amazing as they do not want to go down without a fight. They cam for the playoffs and they want to be there. Carolina now play the Saints in their final game of the season and it'll be interesting to see how long they can stay first in passing yards per game, total yards per game and points per game.




8. (7) Kansas City Chiefs
texasaggies2013
Record 11-4

the Chiefs lose to the Bengals which was a very important game as the Broncos also lost their game. The Chiefs had the chacne to advance to equal footing with the Broncos but couldn't pull it off. Now they have to evaluate their gameplay for their last game of the season which is against the 4-11 Ravens. They have clinched a playoff berth and it'll be interesting if they'll risk an injury in the last game or if they'll rest their starters.




9. (9) Minnesota Vikings
N/A
Record 10-5

The Vikings who also sit coach-less lose to the Lions 37-24 but they still retain their spot in the Rankings. The Vikings is a playoff team but there aren't much hope on the coaching side of things. This week they play the Rams in St. Louis and we don't expect anything spectacular out of the Vikings. AP is fighting for his life to get a Super Bowl victory as the brass in Minnesota refused to trade him to playoff suitors this last offseason and it looks dire for the superstar.




10. (-) Tampa Bay Buccaneers
ashman8
Record 9-6

The Bucs make it onto the Power Rankings in our final week of regular season! Congratulations! They beat the Cowboys 31-7 and as the Jags lose they now jump into the Rankings! It looks liek it's Doug Martin doing the heavy lifting down in Tampa as he is their leading rusher. There is also the dangerous Glennon-to-Jackson connection. a 6'7" guy throwing to a 6'4" guy? Geez. This last game they play the Falcons and it's a must win if they want to clinch the last wildcard spot.

#3 Seed

The first AFC Wildcard match up is the Jacksonville Jaguars first playoff appearance in ELY! The Jaguars are coming off a 31-3 victory over the Steelers and managed a 10-6 record on the year. They head to Denver to take on the Broncos as they finish with the #3 seed after winning at San Diego in their last game of the season. It's going to be a good match up which features one of the best passing offenses in the league (3rd in passing yards per game) versus a good defense bolstered by young eager players in the Jaguars.
Offensivelty the Jaguars are quite weak compared to the rest of the league as they sit in the bottom 8 for each offensive yardage category, they average only 86 rushing yards per game despite having traded for a mobile quarterback in Tyrod Taylor. The Broncos offense sit top 4 in both passign and total yardage and even though their rushing isn't in the top half of the league they still manage 101 yards per game which outshines the Jags totals.
It's going to be a very interesting match up which should be a traditional offense vs defense match up. Let's see if Peyton can pick apart the Jacksonville secondary or if the Jaguars can claw their way to a victory.
My bet is on the Broncos. 42-24.

#4 Seed

The Chiefs face off against the Titans this week in our other AFC match up. The 13-3 Titans come in strong as they are ranked higher on our Power Rankings as well as coming off a strong 49-17 victory over the Raiders.  They face off against the 12-4 Chiefs who won over the Ravens 56-17 in the last game of the season where Jamaal Charles had another good day at the office.
The Two teams match up fairly well and even though both teams have very good running backs, as the Chiefs sit 3rd in rushing yards per game and the Titans sit sixth, the advantage must go to the ELY League MVP Jamaal Charles who broke the rushing record. There are some questions about the Chiefs passing though as they've brought in Tom Brady for their playoff push and they sit 25th in passing yards per game. However that is still better than the titans who only sit at 26th. It's going to be interesting with both defenses being somewhat equal.
This match up will probably be closer than our other AFC Game and it'll be exciting to watch if CJ2k who is leading both rushing yards and receiving yards on the Titans can win it or if the invigorated Chiefs can grab the victory.
My bets are on Kansas City Chiefs this game. 41-35

The 8-8 Cards grab the last playoff spot over the 8-8 Packers even though they lose to the Seahawks in their last game of the season. They now have to face the Panthers who are coach-less but haven't lost agame in the past three weeks despite this. The Panthers won in New Orleans in their last game of the regular season and finish with a 12-3-1 record.
It's kind of unfair to compare these teams as the Panthers sit 1st in ppg, total yards per game, 2nd in rushing yards per game and 2nd in passing yards per game. However all these accomplishments must be attributed to their last coach who left mid-season. The Cards are kinda mediocre as their 8-8 record suggests, but they do have a top 10 passing attack as Brett Smith threw 3400 yards for them this season with Fitzgerald being his favorite target.
I wish I could say it was going to be close but I think the coach-less Panthers with fall to the Cardinals who are hungry for this year's playoffs.
I predict an easy Cardinal win. 35-10.

The 11-5 Vikings and AP beat the Rams in their final game of the season 26-22 despite having no coaching staff at hand. They now face the Buccaneers who are on a tear and just last week made our Power Rankings. They 10-6 Bucs come off a 55-33 win over the Falcons which put them firmly into the playoffs.
The Talk of the match is that Doug Martin finished with more rushing yards than his counterpart Adrian Peterson, but despite this the Vikings finish with more total rushing yards as they rotate and incorporate their QB into their running game with Alex Smith. Glennon is almost at 4k passing and smith sits only at 2539 yards however, the vikings still have thrown for more per game due to QB Controversies. Despite the Vikings leading in all of the offensive categories one bright spot is that the Bucs are better in the Red Zone.
However I feel this shouldn't be a tough one as the Bucs has coaching and the Vikes doesn't if things doesn't change quickly in Minnesota I must hand it to Tampa Bay.
I'm going with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 38-17

#2 Seed

In our first AFC divisional match up we see the Broncos head to Miami. The Broncos are coming off a 35-17 victory over the Jaguars which was somewhat of a blowout. The Broncos defense held the jags to only 97 passing yards and 73 rushing yards. The only aspect they couldn't really contain the Jags was special teams, but even then the Broncos proved too much. Manning threw one pick and 300 yards on the day and Stephens-howling grabbed the rock 8 times for 92 yards. Julius Thomas was Manning's favorite target with 7 catches for 148 yards.
The Dolphins on the other hand has had a bye week and have been resting and planning for both match ups and now they can focus on the broncos and their strong passing offense. The Last time these two teams met was in week 13 where the Broncos came out on top 42-28.
As we all know the Broncos focus on passing but that is the Dolphins strong suit as well seeing as the 'fins sit 1st in passing yards per game to the Broncos 4th. They also are better at running the ball. Wallace has amassed 1952 receiving yards on the regular season, however he was suspended for 3 games total. I predict the Dolphins will try to control the ball and run the clock while the Broncos will try to score asap.
It's going to be interesting to see who can throw the ball the best as both of these teams have a clear cut game plan and it'll be up to the coaches to make adjustments from their last match up. Now it's time to step up for the playoffs. Will the Broncos trample the Dolphins again or will Miami make a splash this time?
I'll have to go with the Dolphins. 28-24.

#1 Seed

In our second AFC Match up we see the Chiefs travel to Cincinnati to face the #1 seeded Bengals. The Chiefs come off an impressive victory against the Titans where Charles had 19 carries for 191 yards but went down late in the game. Tom Brady was decent, going 8/12 for 146 yards, 2 ints and a TD. We think that it'll be his last playoff push as well as his last season in the league. The Bengals should be a clear favorite as they are the top seed and have had a week's rest.
When we compare these two teams we see a high scoring Bengals team who sits in top 10 in all offensive categories and are scoring 41 points per game If we compare that to the Chiefs they only place better in rushing yards per game, however we have received word that Jamaal Charles will not be able to make the rest of the season as he's suffered a season-ending lower-body injury. With a passing attack that's 25th in the league it'll be hard for the Chiefs to attack, however they do have the comeback kid, Brady. The Bengals will field a strong running game with Bernard and they have Dalton who is hungry for his first championship.
My bets are easily on Cincinnati. 42-21

The Cards face the dreaded Seahawks in our first match up of the NFC. As expected the Cards beat the Panthers in a 35-28 game. It looks like the Cardinal's were a bit shaky as their QB, Brett Smith, throws for 305 yards, 4TDs, but 4 INTs. They also had no rushing game to speak of as silas redd goes 9 carries for 0 yards and Brett Smith carries it once for 8. I don't really how a running game can be so non-existent but there you go.
The Seahawks who are undefeated yet again this season sit with a bye and come fresh into their game now with the Lightning & Thunder Duo in Lynch & Thomas who rushed for 2100 & 1400 yards respectively.
When comparing the teams it's clear that the Seahawks is the favorite as they have the best defense in the league as well as a top running game, points per game and total yardage. The cards are a bit better in the throwing game, but their running game is almost a non-factor.
With a week 17 injury scare with lynch we can confirm that he is fit and ready for the game against Arizona as he only had a dislocated finger and just sat out the rest of the game. When they played last the Seahawks won it 34-14.
It might be very one sided this time around since the Seahawks are locked in on the Super Bowl. However if the cards can fly through the air they might have a chance. Not if the Legion of Boom has anything to say about it though.
I predict an easy win for the Seahawks. 35-17.

#2 Seed

The Bucs win against the Vikes who managed to find a coaching staff before the game. Unfortunately a close game slipped out of hand and the final score amassed to 52-21 Bucs. A good day for Tampa as they don't turn the ball over a single time while causing three of their own. They also could rely on Doug Martin this game as he finishes with 18 carries for 295 yards. Vincent Jackson was a good target as he had two catches for 100 yards and in the end the Bucs seemed stronger. They now face the rested Eagles who are the #2 seed in the NFC this year. The Eagles have been strong before but they look stronger than ever.
The Ealges are top 5 in ppg, passing yards/game and total yards/game but the Bucs take the edge in the rushing department where doug Martin is almost touching 2k yards, while Shady McCoy sits at 1522. However the Eagle's passing game proves better as Foles has almost 5k passing yards which is about 1k better than his counterpart Glennon. This is quite dangerous though as the last news from the league is that Foles is suspended next game. However we have not confirmed this yet.
This game will probably be one of the closer games together with the Broncos - Dolphins game this week. Can the Bucs sail to victory or will the Eagles glide into the NFC champ game? It's going to be close.
I'm going with an upset. The Bucs. 35-31
