When we're on point, I don't think you could stop us with an All Star team. (Conversely, when we're in that awful stank mode like Jacksonville last year, I'm pretty sure we could MAYBE play Notre Dame to a draw.)

Baltimore over Atlanta
They already played a fairly close game.
Manning has been bounced from the playoffs in his teams first game 7 out of the 11 times he had played in the postseason.
The Bengals front four should be able to get pressure on Manning and Willis McGahee will be absent this time.
AJ Green is one receiver who can get the best of Champ Bailey and BJGE is a downhill runner who won't turn the ball over.
If they play it will be a close game.
I think this is the year that all the top seeds win out in each game. Not sure the last time it happened that way but it has been a while.
Denver beats NE by a TD in the AFC title game and then beats "whoever" in the SB. The NFC is really a head scratcher right now. Any one of those 6 teams could make it to New Orleans and no one would be surprised.
Ravens over Colts, Houston over Bengals, Ravens over Denver, NE over Houston, Baltimore over NE...homer pick.
The new Ravens offense is the X-factor.
Gb over Minn, Seattle over Washington, Atlanta over Seattle, GB over SF, GB over Atl.
I'm gonna use my wishful thinking on this one and just hope to the football gods this happens. Remember last year when everyone and their grandma thought Rodgers would play Brees in the NFC Championship and neither made it? What if it happened 2 years in a row with Brady and Peyton?
