NFL Wild Card Predictions and ProjectionsPosted: January 5, 2013 by The Sports Haven in UncategorizedCincinnati (6) vs. Houston (3)These two teams are eerily similar on the defensive side of the ball. The one stat that stands out is passes deflected, and boy does it stand out. The Bengals have deflected just 72 passes compared to a whopping 118 by the Texans. And at a below average height for a QB in Andy Dalton at 6 this is going to bea problem for him. On the offensive side of the ball the Bengals have even Womens Tyler Eifert Jersey more of a disadvantage. Arian Foster > Benjarvus GreenEllis. Matt Schaub > Andy Dalton. Green. Owen Daniels = Jermaine Gresham. Foster and Johnson torched the Bengals last year in the playoffs combining for over 250 yards and 3 touchdowns.Player to watch and projection: Arian Foster 24 rushes for 130 yards, TDProjected Score: Houston 34 Cincinnati 20Minnesota (6) vs. Green Bay (3)If the Vikings did not win last week against them then this would seem to be an inevitable blowout. Still the Vikings are 106 but just 35 on the road. The Packers, on the other hand are 71 at home and had won 5 straight against the Vikings before losing to them on Sunday. The Vikings are giving up 244 pass yards per game and Aaron Rodgers seems destined to pass for more than 300 in this one. Rodgers stayed unbelievably consistent even with one of the most inconsistent, injuryplagued receiving cores in the NFL. The receivers are all healthy just in time to thrash the Vikings.

He has not turned the ball over once in the past three games after turning it over more than any other player in the league prior.
