NFL Championship Sunday Predictions

3-3 overall in playoffs straight up
Picks and preview below

Green Bay Packers @ Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks -7.5
Over/Under 44

This is probably what everyone predicted looking at the playoff bracket before the playoffs started. This is a rematch of the week 1 Seahawk thrashing. Aaron Rodgers mobility was severely diminished last week with the injured calf. In my opinion that really hampers the Packer offense. He really played well in the second half vs Dallas but this Seahawk defense is a couple notches up from the Cowboy D. Eddie Lacy will have to step up today to take some pressure off Rodgers. I think the Pack will have some success with Lacy early but not nearly enough. The Seahawk d will make adjustments and shut him down. Rodgers immobility will make him a sitting duck on passing downs and Seattle will turn the Pack over. Russell Wilson will be Russell Wilson. He will make 2 or 3 plays that turn the game and the Seahawks will control the line. The Seahawks put it away late and head back to the Super Bowl

Green Bay Packers 17

Indianapolis Colts @ New England Patriots
New England Patriots -7
Over Under 52

This is another rematch of a mid season beat down. The Patriots went to Indy and dominated the line. Jonas Gray had a career day as the Pats won handily. I believe today will be vastly different. The Colts dont nearly have the front 7 the Ravens do but they have enough to follow a similar game plan. The Ravens took away the Pats run game and made Brady win it. Chuck Pagano will devise a game plan similar. The Pats pass rush last week was non existent. Andy Luck should have time to make plays to his receivers. He has been terrible vs the Pats in his career but he will make a mends today. The lack of run game is what keeps Indy from pulling off the upset. Gostkowski caps off a late Brady drive with a game winning field goal as Adam Vinatierri looks on in heartbreak.
