Fithian’s Fab Five: Playoff Picks 1-11-13
By: Dennis Fithian
Baltimore +10 @ Denver: Peyton Manning has been so incredible this year and will not be denied a win. Nobody should pick against Manning this weekend. The Ravens, with big day from Ray Rice, can keep it close. Manning marches on, but Baltimore covers.
Prediction: Denver 30 Baltimore 24
Green Bay +3 @ San Fran: If both teams play their best games it will be a classic. Aaron Rodgers the difference in a game that comes down to the final seconds.
Prediction: Green Bay 28 San Fran 27
Seattle +2.5 @ Atlanta: Seahawks with the better defense and better balance on offense than the Falcons. Marshawn Lynch is the kind of back that can shut down a home crowd advantage.
Prediction: Seattle 24 Atlanta 17
Houston +9.5 @ New England: Says here the Texans have too much going for them to get blown out like they did on that Monday night a few weeks ago up in Foxborough.
Prediction: New England 35 Houston 28
