The Playoff Picks

Randy Taylor and Adam Caplan of Scout.com make their picks for this weekend's playoff games.

PLAYOFF GAME RANDY'S PICK ADAM'S PICK
Colts at Ravens

Ravens
28 - 24

Ravens
 23 - 20

  The Colts can't overcome the running game two weeks in a row and home field advantage of Baltimore. Colts' offense vs. Ravens' defense is a wash. The Colt receivers could have problems with the Ravens' physical play in this matchup.
Eagles at Saints

Saints
27 - 17


Saints
27 - 24

  Putting pressure on Brees requires good play from the secondary and that becomes much harder with the loss of Sheppard. The emotions of the Saints and their fans may be close to the home opener in the dome. Not having CB Lito Sheppard will be a problem for the Eagles against the solid Saint passing game.
Seahawks at  Bears

Bears
28 - 13


Bears
27 - 24

  The Bears' defense is still too good for an average Seahawks' offense. Here's a battle of two struggling quarterbacks. The Bears have the better defense and should win.
Patriots at Chargers

Chargers
31 - 21


Chargers
20 - 17

  This is LT's year and it should continue regardless of the success of Brady and Belichick in big games. This is the hardest game to pick but San Diego has the better offense and gets the slight edge.
