Giants vs 49ers: Simple, the Giants scored 37 points against the 15-1 Packers, a team with Clay Matthews and Charles Woodson. Nothing leads me to believe that the offense wont go wild on the 49ers as well.

Ravens vs Patriots: Ray Rice is playing like a god and is going up against a sketchy defense in the Patriots. The key will be slowing Brady, but the Patriots offense is too one-dimensional for my liking. Ravens in a close game.


That defense with Clay Matthews and Charles Woodson finished 32nd in total Defense. Behind the sketchy defense in the Patriots. Meanwhile the 49ers finished 4th in total defense, and 2nd in PPG allowed. The Niners had 4 defense probowlers. No way the giants Go wild on the 49ers defense. This Giants team only put on 10 on the Eagles, 10 on the Redskins, 20 on the Dolphins, and 20 on....O yeah the San Fransico 49ers.

Giants are 5-3 on the road. Niners are 7-1 at home. Playoff teams are 7-1 at home. 49ers beat the Saints. Saints beat the Giants.

The god Ray Rice had 1 less rushing yard than Aaron Hernadez. Meanwhile Brady is 9-0 in his last 9 games, with a 25-3 TD-INT ratio (Plus 3 rushing, so really 28-3). 7 in those games he threw for 300+. 8 of those games he had a qb rating over 107. The Patriots a 7-1 at home this season. Meanwhile the Ravens are 4-4 on the road with losses to teams like the Chargers, Seahawks, Titans, and Jaguars. BTW none of whom made the playoffs.

So hot qb with great home record vs shaky QB whos .500 on the road? Please

Pats. Niners.


Lets start with the Giants offense. You mentioned they "put on 10 on the Eagles, 10 on the Redskins, 20 on the Dolphins and 20 on the 49ers. Lets take a look at when these matchups took place. Eagles: Week 11, November 20th, 2 months ago. Dolphins: Week 8, October 30th, almost 3 months ago. (Did you mention they won the game?). 49ers: Week 10, November 13th, over 3 months ago. Redskins are the most recent, happening on week 15 one month ago. Nonne of those performances phase the 4 game winning streak the Giants are on in which they have outscored opponents 101-40, their lowest point performance being 21. They also have not given up more than 20 points in a month.

You mentioned that road teams are 1-7 in the playoffs. I think we all know which teams possesses the lone road win.

On to the Ravens, who match Tom Brady with the 4th passing defense in the league, 3rd in sacks and the 2nd lowest opponent completion percentage this regular season. Sounds like Brady will have to hand it off a bit. Aaron Hernadez and company will have to deal with the 2nd rushing defense in the league. The Ravens are also 1st in opponent YPC. BTW, Ray Rice is the 2nd leading rusher in the NFL.

As much as I love the Saints, with a healthy defensive line, these Giants aren't the same D as the one that the Saints lit up. Think the Giants can keep Smith uncomfortable without blitzing and Smith makes some mistakes and pays for them

Right could apply more analysis of the stats in his arguments for sure

i think that that is right, the question is can SF create enough pressure, under control, to get some turnovers. that game is not decided brfore it starts.

"49ers beat the Saints. Saints beat the Giants"

Wonder if Tebow gets mentioned.

Tebow > Djroxalittle IMO.

When left said Ray Rice is playing like a god, how did right not mention Tim Tebow. Leaning left, I need to see something other than stats from right

January 22, 2012  09:28 AM ET

"The god Ray Rice had 1 less rushing yard than Aaron Hernandez"

That was in one game where Rice played a much better rushing defense than Hernandez did. Voting left now.

Has anyone looked at the pile of crap offenses that Baltimore played this year? Also, they barely beat a Houston team without their best defensive player and a 3rd string QB.

I'm sure that the Pats defense would be rated a lot higher if they played the Clevelands and so forth of the world.

Sanchez...
I think the Pats win this game, but not based on that argument, based on Brady's arm and O Coordinator.

PACKERS HAD NO D. 49ERS BRING THE HURT.

January 22, 2012  12:13 PM ET

UPSET SPEACIALS ARE NOT ON THE MENU THIS WEEK. GO 49ERS

Nah, Marino wasn't very good in the playoffs. He was more of a regular season performer.
