HAWK’S NFL DIVISIONAL ROUND PICKS: 2017 Edition

HAWK’s NFL DIVISIONAL  ROUND PICKS: 2017 Edition
Picked 3 of 4 correct winners in the Wildcard Round last week. 4 more to pick this week as we enter the second round of the playoffs.

Saturday Night Divisional Playoffs
#3 Seattle Seahawks (11-5-1) at #2 Atlanta Falcons  (11-5)
(-5.0) (O/U 51.5) 1:35 PM Fox
 
We start the second round of the playoffs with a good one. These two teams faced off during week 6. It was played in Seattle and the Seahawks pulled off a dramatic 26-24 victory.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and Falcons leading receiver Julio Jones went toe to toe the whole game, 
but Jones got the better of him, statistically anyways. He had 7 catches for 139 yards and a Td on 9 targets. But it was Sherman that had a crucial stop on 4th and 10 in the final 1:39 of the game that would end the Falcons final attempt at a comeback.
Stopping the best receiver in the NFL is no small task but Seattle’s depleted secondary that is missing Earl Thomas will have to do just that. Sherman was not guarding Jones every play last game but he may have to be in this time. Atlanta struggled to run the ball against the Seahawks in the week 6 matchup, which is no surprise. Few teams in the league have been able to run against Bobby Wagner and company this season as they rank 7th best in the league.

Hawk’s 2016 NFL Picks: Dallas at Minnesota

Thursday-Night-Football-Logo
Dallas Cowboys (10-1) at Minnesota Vikings(6-5)

(+3.0) (O/U 44.0) 
A battle between two teams going in opposite directions as Dallas is the winner of 10 straight while Minnesota has lost 5 of their last 6.

Rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot continue to put up good numbers. Elliot’s 1,199 yards rushing currently leads the league while his 11 rushing TD’s are second. While I have picked against Dallas a lot this year and still don’t think they will get far in the playoffs with a rookie qb and running back, have learned to stop doubting them in the regular season.
Pick: Cowboys 24-17

Hawk’s 2016 NFL Picks: Week 4

By Brent “The Hawk” Walker

Week 4 Byes: Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles

[arve url=”https://youtu.be/0VTjBTz9LeM”]

Really rough week for me yet again going 6-10 for the second time in a row, which puts me at 21-27 for the year. Good God! In my defense this season has been nuts so far.
But still I have to get my shit together. Time to rebound.
 
Indianapolis Colts (1-2) at Jacksonville Jaguars (0-3) (in Wembley Stadium, London)
(+2.5.) (O/U 49.0)
 So they’re doing the whole play NFL games in London thing again this year. I think there is two more.  I’m not a big fan of them myself. I don’t like missing any football ever and I will not be up for the 6:30 am kickoff.
Besides, it’s such a long commute for both teams and usually ends up being a lousy game.
Depends on which team can handle the jet lag better I guess.
Pick: Jaguars
