Last week, my Divisional Round predictions were a little shaky after my perfect 4-for-4 Wild Card Week. My pre-playoff Super Bowl pick Green Bay Packers were downed by the red-hot Giants, 37-20. Also, the Saints lost to the 49ers in the game of the year, 36-32. That leaves the current NFC Championship Game (Giants-49ers) the exact opposite of what I picked (Saints-Packers). Although my NFC Predictions are a bit shaky, I am still perfect on the AFC side, correctly picking all of the Wild Card and Divisional Round games. Let’s see if I can keep it up with my 2012 NFL Conference Championship Predictions: (For the first time in six posts, I will not say ‘Tebow’…oops ;))

  1. Ravens defense is old, slow and over-rated. They have played over 7 games against the NFL’s bottom 10 defenses which has inflated their numbers. If they don’t pressure Brady, I don’t care if they have Revis back there with Reed, Brady will eat them alive. Also, The Pats run defense is actually pretty decent.

    • Ed Reed, Haloti Ngata, Ray Lewis and Terell Suggs? This Ravens’ defense is sick. They have interior rushers (Ngata and Lewis) and a big threat on the outside (Suggs). Interception-machine Ed Reed will keep an eye on Brady at all times. Also, in 2009, when the Patriots’ defense was better than they are now, Rice ran all over them for 159 yards and two touchdowns.

  2. Good write up , but I don’t know little man. You might look like a genius or not, lol.

    Really there both almost toss ups. But I hit the Pats and Niners!!

  3. Ravens upsetting the Pats huh? I had it the other way around, but just like you.. I have the red-hot Giants going to San Fran and beating the Niners. It’s definitely 4 very good teams and in the playoffs, you just never know.. take last week for example… It’s a toss up, but the team that wins the turnover battle will win. Good job Sam.

    • Thanks! I just have a feeling about the Ravens. They have been inconsistent on the road this year, but have won seven of their past eight games. Defense wins championships, and defense is something that the Patriots don’t have, and that can hurt you in the playoffs (see: Green Bay Packers).

  4. I got the Niners and the Pats. I don’t think the Ravens will make the clutch plays needed offensively to win the game. I think the Giants will not get it done today. I think people are having flashbacks of 2007, but there’s one thing that they are missing: this secondary isn’t that good at all. I expect Alex to come out and play well again. Key thing in the game will be the running game and the 49ers run the ball well and stop the run too. That will limit the Giants’ possessions and also put pressure on Eli when he is on the field.

      • Thanks so much! Their road statistics are over exaggerated. Out of the eight road games they played this year, two of them were against playoff teams. In those games they were 2-0.

    • For the Ravens, their defense will stop Brady and the Patriots offense. I know that their offense isn’t amazing, but their defense can get the job done for them. As for the NFC, I know that the Giants’ secondary is weaker, but Eli Manning is playing at a higher level now than in 2007. While the 49ers might play well in the running game, I doubt Alex Smith’s ability to perform against a stout Giants’ pass rush. Good luck, though!

  5. Battle of the Harbaughs in Indy…it would have just too many great story lines.

    P.S. I live just outside of Indy (50 minutes from the stadium), and my wife is a hotel manager. You really don’t want to know what rooms are going for that weekend…

  6. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and
    visit more often. Didd you hire out a developer to create
    your theme? Exceptional work!
