NFL Wild Card Weekend: Green Bay Packers VS. Minnesota Vikings, Cincinnati Bengals VS. Houston Texans

By: 01.05.13  •  13 Comments

It’s that time of year again, kids. The NFL Playoffs are among us. That means it’s time for TSS’ second annual TSS Crew NFL Playoff Challenge. In case you forgot how it goes, here are the rules.

Six writers are each given an AFC and NFC playoff team that is chosen at random. The writer then has to defend his teams all the way through the playoffs no matter how much he actually thinks his team will win or not. Before each game, the writer has to explain why his team will win and predict a final score. Last year, David D. drew the New York Giants and went home victorious. Tinsley also received numerous death threats from Packers fans convinced he’d cursed their franchise by drawing the Cheeseheads. All in all, fun was had. So let’s get to this year’s assignments:

David – Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans

J. Tinsley – Green Bay (we swear it was a random drawing, people) and Baltimore Ravens

Greg Whitt – Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings

Raj – New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks

AJ – Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins

Gotty – Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers

So without further ado, let’s get to today’s match-ups featuring Tins’ Packers vs. Whitt’s Vikings and AJ’s Bengals vs. David’s Texans.
