Ok, so I am often pretty bad with my football picks, but what the heck, I am giving it a try for Championship Weekend.

NFC Title Game- I expect this one to be a rout.  The Falcons are lucky to still be alive after last week’s crazy win over the Seahawks.   They won’t be so lucky this week.  Colin Kaepernick should shred them like Cam and Russell Wilson did.    I also don’t see the Falcons O-Line being able to move the Niners front.  Justin Smith should be healthier this week and I think he and Aldon Smith will be all over Matt Ryan. Plus, when Ryan does get the throws off, do you trust him to make plays in the playoffs?  With his history, I am still not buying him as a postseason baller.  Niners 30-13


AFC Title Game- The Ravens and Pats have split the last 4 meetings.  Flacco has outplayed Brady in their last 3.    Flacco should have success with the Deep ball against the New England Secondary and don;t look now, but the Baltimore Defense is healthier and playing alot better.   I think the Ravens avenge last year’s loss.  Ravens 26-23
