NFL Divisional Round Pick Results

Winning team in bold.

Things went largely as expected this week, so not too much to say about the games.

Saints @ Seahawks (APR, SRS, Line)
The Saints' defense did surprisingly well in this game, holding the Seahawks to just 16 points until late in the 4th quarter. The problem was, the Saints' offense didn't get going until the 4th quarter, and by then it was just too late to make up the difference.
Colts @ Patriots (APR, SRS, Line)
The Colts turned the ball over on their opening drive, and never seemed to quite recover their equillibrium. They did manage to keep the game within 7 points going into the 4th quarter, but too many turnovers and too much LeGarrette Blount was more than the Colts could handle.
49ers (APR, SRS, Line) @ Panthers
It didn't seem like the Panthers' defense did a terrible job in this game, but given the offense they have, they needed to do better. The Panthers were 0-4 (including this game) when their opponent scored more than 20 points.
Chargers @ Broncos (APR, SRS, Line)
The Chargers' defense did an okay job slowing down the Broncos offense, holding them to just 17 points through 3 quarters. But their offense just couldn't get going at all. They seemed to find something late when Rivers started throwing a lot of deep balls, but by then it was too late, and once the Broncos' offense got the ball back, they were able to run out the clock for the win.


No upsets (and no split picks)!

APR 4-0 7-183%
SRS 4-0 6-275%
Line 4-0 6-275%
