    I think they could win @ Cincy but not Indy. If we are talking hypotheticals, I think they could win at Minnesota, and they should have and could win at Washington. Perhaps they could win at Atlanta. Anything beyond that, though, would be a big stretch.

    Well I just said in another post that I think we can beat the Patriots....and yes, on the road. I honestly don't think we can beat the Broncos but I swear with this Ravens team (and the recently added motivation), anything can happen.

    That's a real stretch to think Bengals would upset the Broncos. I just don't see it but the thought of it makes me giddy. You better believe I am rooting for the Bengals over the Texans and then over Denver (only if we win out too). I would love a Ravens/Bengals AFCCG at home but I probably have a better chance at winning the lottery.

    I really don't think it's that big of a stretch.

    http://www.bengals.com/schedule/game/2012/regular9/

    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.

    For the record, I hope it is ANY other AFC team that makes it to the SB other than the Patriots if it's not us.
    Bravo!

    NFC - I will just add that Seahawks are a bad matchup for Atlanta. If those teams play I see Seattle dropping the hammer on em
    World Domination 3 Points at a Time!

    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?

    Wild Card Round:
    6 Bengals over 3 Texans
    3 Packers over 6 Vikings
    4 Ravens over 5 Colts
    5 Seahawks over 4 Redskins

    Divisional Round:
    6 Bengals over 1 Broncos
    3 Packers over 2 49ers
    1 Falcons over 5 Seahawks
    4 Ravens over 2 Patriots

    Championship Round:
    1 Falcons over 3 Packers
    4 Ravens over 6 Bengals

    Super Bowl:
    Ravens 27, Falcons 24.

    I think people are high on the Seahawks because of thinking they're this year's Giants or Packers. They do look awesome, but think them having a rookie QB will get them before the end. Good for them to have a young team coming up so quick. Still, the Ravens are the dark horse of this year, have been all year - if they get it together, they're running away with the Lombardi.

    Wildcard weekend:
    Saturday 5th Jan:
    Cincinnati win @ Houston (The Texans just choked away the bye, think this is the end of the road for them.)
    Green Bay win vs Minnesota (One thing for the Vikings to beat the Packers at home, however impressive, but winning at Lambeau's something else).

    Sunday 6th Jan:
    Baltimore win vs Indianapolis (A close game, to the wire, which the Ravens pull out.)
    Washington win vs Seattle (Very close game, this one could go either way. Don't trust Seattle on the road much, particularly on the east coast. Feel like being a bit against the grain as well).

    Divisional:
    Saturday 12th Jan:
    Denver wins vs Cincinnati (Bengals'll fight, but it turns out not being very close.)
    Green Bay wins @ San Francisco (Even though the Niners beat the Packers at Lambeau to begin the season, feel like the Packers will somehow sneak one).

    Sunday 13th Jan:
    Atlanta wins vs Washington (Comfortably 1st playoff victory for Matt Ryan).
    Baltimore wins @ New England (Ravens finally achieved their first close victory over the Patriots. They achieve another one).

    Sunday 20th Jan:
    Green Bay wins @ Atlanta (Matt Ryan chokes, Packers win by a rally).
    Baltimore wins @ Denver (Peyton Manning does his usual choke job, Ravens win on a long Tucker FG).

    Sunday 3rd February:
    Baltimore wins vs Green Bay (Ravens win in overtime on a special teams play).

    I can see the Ravens winning at Denver or New England. New England particularly, as the Ravens always give the Patriots fits even if it usually meant failure to close out the deal. Flacco should never have lost to Brady. They've learnt how to win a close one against them now. They've not beaten us by more than a score since 2004 - which was in their prime.

    I don't see us winning at Mile High on divisional weekend, but I do see us winning the AFCCG there. Having even time to prepare plus I think the Ravens will ride emotion and less expectation to win it.

    So this will be the Bronco's Bogeyman? Their winning streak? Really? Do you know how many people have lost at Roulette thinking this way?

    Re: Final 2013 NFL postseason predictions

    Couple of things:

    1. To anyone thinking the Colts game is a gimme, have you been watching the Ravens the past month? What about the Giants you say? Well, NY raised the white flag in their previous game against the Falcons.

    2. To anyone thinking that the Bengals will beat the Texans, are you nuts? Is this the same Bengals team coached by the hapless Marvin Lewis? The guy who decides to kick a 56-yard FG with 3 mins left in a crucial game against the Steelers at the notoriously difficult HEINZ field, and predictably missed it, thereby giving the Pittsburgh the ball at their own 46??!! The Bengals-Dallas game shows that no matter how many advantages are in Cincinnati's favor, they will find ways to shoot themselves in the foot.

    3. Because of #2, the Ravens will have to tangle with the Broncos at Denver who have a better offense, better defense, and a much better QB who has beaten the Ravens, what, 10 times in a row? The only chance the Ravens have is forcing beaucoup turnovers.

    Broncos vs Falcons in the SB with Peyton getting his second Lombardi.

    Well, at least Flacco can say he has won at least one playoff game every year he's been in the league and Ray comes out on top at home.

    I've seen the ravens have the 4th ranked defense over the past 6 weeks.

    The last six weeks? Anyone can cherry-pick stats to support their argument. I was referring to the whole body of work, the whole season.
