It’s Rematch Weekend in the NFL playoffs, with all four games a re-run of a previous game (or games) between the teams this season. Instead of rehashing the past to predict the results, I decided to take a philosophical approach to arrive at my conclusions.
Ravens at Steelers
What is truth? Truth is Ben Roethlisberger beats the Ravens. He’s done it eight times in 10 meetings. He’s done it six straight times. He did it a month ago. He’ll do it again Saturday.
PREDICTION: Steelers 20, Ravens 17
Packers at Falcons
Why does ice melt? Ice melts when it becomes too warm for the molecules to stay together as a solid. The Packers will bring enough heat that Matt Ryan, aka Matty Ice, will melt down in the Georgia Dome.
PREDICTION: Packers 30, Falcons 20
Seahawks at Bears
Does a bear poop in the woods? Will the Bears crush the Seahawks? The answer to both questions is yes.
PREDICTION: Bears 33, Seahawks 3
Jets at Patriots
If Rex Ryan is in a forest and nobody is around to hear him, does he still make a sound? The answer to that question is yes. However, many fans would probably root for the tree to fall on him and eliminate his yapping.
PREDICTION: Patriots 40, Jets 23
THERE IT IS!
