Jamaal Charles, If the NFL regular season is over, you do not forget to fantasy football. Because really, what you going to do? The holidays are over, so you cannot even fill your days seem to spend time with your family. Beyond that, there is now also a chance for redemption. Those of you whose teams regularly had the same level of success that Brett Favre does not unduly propositioning women may face ridicule from others in your league, and a series victory could help mitigate some of that.
Your skill set may seem low even be better served by the game of the series. For now the game is not based so much on forecasting which each player plays well, but the team has the best chance of advancing. A great game for a player whose team bounced back will not do you any good. Some games on average for a player whose team made the Super Bowl, however, should be good enough for a championship.
The realization of these forecasts team got a little easier this season, since everyone immediately reduces the Seahawks. It should be impossible for any sub-.500 team to make the playoffs, but Seattle did at least prove that it is mathematically possible.
Limping into the final week of the regular season at 6-9 and get to the playoffs by defeating a team from St. Louis who had won a match in 2009 and a total of six over three years is not a builder greater confidence, either. And a look at the numbers of the team to prove that the Seahawks should not have been good enough to win their place (see chart). The highest ranked team in one of six major categories (rushing, passing, scoring on offense and defense) was 19th in passing offense. And most of that is only because the Seahawks were 31st in rushing offense. We must try to move the ball somehow, right?
Somehow, they did understand how to move the ball, put up 41 points on the defending champions of the Super Bowl yesterday and move on to next week.
Well at least you’re not competing against could see it coming, either. It is therefore a wash.
Fortunately, in addition to this aberration of nature, there are other teams that deserve to play. Here are some predictions on the teams that I hope does not go all Seattle on me.
Bears may have obtained a pass as the second seed NFC, but they do not do well against good teams. Surely those of us in New England can be a bit biased towards this view after seeing Tom Brady tearing them in the snow last month.
What the Bears have done well is the defense, second in the league against the run and fourth in scoring the opponent. The Patriots showed that could be suspect, even if, by putting up 36 points on them. A couple other playoff teams – the Jets (34 points) and Eagles (26) – also scored enough to show some vulnerability.
Thus, although I do not think the Bears are a team terrible, I think they are a team that has benefited from a weak schedule. In addition to playing the Lions and Vikings twice (and yes, that added up to four wins), they also got the pre-Jason Garrett Cowboys, Panthers and Bills when they were a joke without a win. That is seven wins of less-than-stellar performance and not less-than-stellar team will get in the playoffs.
Kansas City also had a bit of a timing light, as all the teams playing in the NFC West helped him. And yes, the leaders did as they should and beat Arizona, St. Louis, San Francisco and Seattle by a combined score of 131-60. Add in wins over Cleveland and Buffalo, and it looks like another group who rode a favorable schedule in the regular season to the size illusion.
The chiefs have, however, the position of the NFL’s top-ranked rushing attack. Jamaal Charles was second in the league with 1,467 rushing yards, and was completed by Thomas Jones, who added 896 yards. They get the delicate task of opening the playoffs against the Baltimore fifth rushing defense, but this unit does not seem as big as it has in recent years.
The Ravens did not allow more than 17 points to an opponent in the season opener 4-1. After the Patriots defeated them 23-20 in Week 6, however, some weaknesses appear to have occurred.
Baltimore has followed this game with 34 points for the Bills and who need overtime to scrape a victory to three points. The Ravens have allowed more then 20 points on three other occasions, including the playoffs against teams from Atlanta and New Orleans. This team seems to be good against teams it should beat, but vulnerable to teams with a strong attack, so I dub my choice leaders weekend wild card upset.
