Will The 2009-2010 NFL Playoff Season Start Off With Deja Vu?

The 2009-2010 NFL playoffs are about to kick off and amazingly enough, three of the four matchups are repeats from the final week of the season. The only game that is not a repeat is the Ravens-Patriots game that is being played on Sunday. However, while most of these games are week 17 repeats, it is unlikely that we are going to see the same results on the scoreboard.

Saturday Games:

New York Jets @ Cincinnati Bengals
Week 17 had the Jets blowing the Bengals out, but this was much ado about nothing. The Bengals had many of their starters either riding the bench or being pulled early in game. Lewis definitely did not show his hand and treated the game more like a scrimmage. The Jets had to win this game in order to make the playoffs and the Bengals already knew that if they lost this game to the Jets, they were going to see them again in the first round. It was the perfect opportunity to pick their opponent. While you have to respect the Jets defense, the rookie Sanchez will probably be in for a long afternoon. Expect the Bengals to win big here.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys
While some of the analysts tried to play the Eagles loss down, week 17 provided an old fashioned whuppin’. Dallas is now 2-0 against the Eagles this season and will have to go 3-0 in order to win their first playoff game since 1996. While the media hype would have you think this is a difficult task, 2-0 teams are 12-7 in the playoffs when trying to sweep the season. Dallas can expect to see a lot more blitzes early in the game and while this game will be close, Dallas may just have Philadelphia’s number this season. If they manage to get by the Eagles, Dallas could be the team to beat.

Sundays Games:

Baltimore Ravens @ New England Patriots
The Patriots were flat out beat in week 17 and lost one of their premiere players, Wes Welker. Their defense has been suspect all season and Baltimore does not fear the road. This could be Flacco’s coming out party and the points in this one are just a bonus. Expect the Baltimore D to be in Brady’s face all day and this could very well be an outright win by the Ravens on Sunday afternoon.

Green Bay Packers @ Arizona Cardinals
This is the final game of the weekend and the third repeat from week 17 of the regular season. Again, we have a game where the studio morons were blowing the Arizona loss out of proportion. Arizona sat their starters and did nothing more than let their players get healthy. While we don’t feel that Arizona will get deep into the playoffs this season, they take this game in what should be a shootout.
