re: NFL Thread: RAVENS SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS
I have my reasons. I think the Texans are on a huge downward spiral, and losing 3 of their last 4 show that. Their running game, the best part of their offense, has been bad as of late. On the other side, the Bengals defense has been strong and they can hold onto the lead if the offense gets it.
The Vikings are playing outdoors in Green Bay in January. The Packers are a throwing team and inclement weather would be extremely detrimental to their offense. The running works better than passing does in the snow, and no team has a better running game than the Vikings.
The Ravens and Colts game could go either way, but the Ravens have been a mess this second half of the season, and their new offensive coordinator and former Colts coach Jim Caldwell is terrible. If they don't use Ray Rice, then they are done. So I'm picking the Colts.
As for Seattle and Washington, this is the tough one, but Seattle is getting back Browner from suspension, so the already tough defense could be tougher. Redskins defense is still injury-ridden. In the end, I think Seattle's defense will be the key and win the game for them.
