NFC Playoff Picks

Green Bay at San Francisco

This is a rematch of week one, where the 49ers went into Lambeau Field and found a way to win.  This game is a little different as the Packers begin to get healthy at the right time.  The return of Clay Mathews and Charles Woodson has given them a huge boost on defense. The 49ers will look different from the first meeting as they have changed quarterbacks.  Colin Kaepernick will now get the start and his arm is stronger than Alex Smith’s and he is better with his feet.  The biggest story to me is the health of Justin Smith on defense.  If he is playing at high level, it could be a long day for the Packers offensive line. I think the 49ers find a way to win the game by creating pressure and forcing turnovers.

Seattle at Atlanta

I feel the travel that Seattle has endured will catch up to them this weekend.  Atlanta has heard all of the talk about how they can’t get it done in the playoffs, and i am sure they are tired of it.  They have been a great home team over the past few years and Seattle has traveled over 5,000 miles in the past 2 weeks.  The injury Chris Clemons suffered is going to be huge for a Seahawks defense that likes to create pressure.  As a football fan i cant wait to see Sherman and Browner match up with Jones and White.  I think that is the best head to head battle that will take place this weekend.  I think Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez will have big games this Sunday.
