Postseason Picks!!!

            The NFL regular season is in the books and now only 12 teams remain. This year's field is dominated by NFL blue bloods such as Dallas, New England, Green Bay, and Pittsburgh. Who will take home the ultimate prize, the Lombardi Trophy? Let's take a look at who won't be going to Houston come February.

Oakland versus Houston: A battle between two teams with injuries at the quarterback position. For Houston, a relegated Brock Osweiler will take the reins. For Oakland, it's going to reportedly be rookie Connor Cook. This game could have the best potential for a road team winning. Whoever doesn't screw up the most will win here. Houston 13, Oakland 10
Detroit versus Seattle: The Lions backed their way into the postseason thanks to a generous gift from the New York Giants on Sunday afternoon. However, they have to travel to Seattle, a place that is never easy for road teams to win. The Seahawks don't have Earl Thomas for the postseason, but the Lions don't have any deep threats that can exploit Thomas's absence. Expect Russell Wilson to pick apart the Lions' defense in the second half, if not earlier. Seattle 27, Detroit 10
Miami versus Pittsburgh: Like the Raiders and Texans, the Dolphins are missing their starting quarterback. Enter Matt Moore, who will be making a start in frigid Pittsburgh weather at Heinz Field. Expect the Dolphins to hand the ball to Jay Ajayi quite a bit in order to try and open up the passing game. But expect Pittsburgh to counter with the Roethlisberger-to-Brown combo. Pittsburgh 35, Miami 17
New York Giants versus Green Bay: Green Bay is riding a winning streak of six games into the playoffs, New York has one of the best rush defenses in the NFL and will test the Packers' run game quite a bit. However, this Giants team has a hard time scoring outside of Odell Beckham Jr. and Aaron Rodgers will exploit holes in the Giants secondary. Green Bay 24, New York 21

Bonus Pick: Alabama 35, Clemson 28

Final Regular Season Record: 73-35-2 (+13)
