Last week, my wild-card predictions were AAACB (As accurate as can be). I went 4-for-4 including a successful upset pick (Broncos over Steelers). Forgetting the fact that I was 4-for-4, all of my descriptions and scores were precise. You can view them here.
Also, check out my overall 2012 NFL Playoff Predictions (made before the playoffs started) here.
After that juggernaut performance, we move on to the Divisional Round. With a week highlighted by high-profilie rematches, I’m hoping to keep my golden touch into the next round of Me vs. the teams I didn’t pick.
Enjoy and feel free to drop a comment by. I would love to hear all of your picks!

New Orleans Saints @ San Francisco 49ers- This one is a classic example of an explosive offense v. a punishing defense. The Saints lead the NFL in four major offensive categories and the 49ers lead the NFC in five defensive categories. Drew Brees has been on an absolute tear of late, with 17 touchdowns in his last four games. The 49ers defense has been stellar. While they boast the best rushing defense in the NFL, their passing defense is
only 16th in the NFL. Look for Brees to penetrate the holes in the 49ers’ secondary, while Darren Sproles plays a huge role in the short passing game. The main issue for the 49ers in this game will be their inconsistent offense failing to keep up with an electrifying Saints’ offense.
Saints 27, 49ers 17
Difference maker: Darren Sproles
