Cincy Jungle staff picks for every Divisional Round matchup

New, comments

Even though the Bengals weren't able to stick around, the CJ staff carries on as we predict the playoffs and fall back on our secondary and tertiary rooting interests.

Most of us would like nothing more than to see Denver deal Pittsburgh a defeat this weekend.

For all the grief unknowing readers have given Jason for picking against Cincinnati this year, the strategy worked out for him as he was the only CJ staff member to correctly pick all four games last week. I even followed that path, which resulted in people on Facebook wanting me to be fired. It gave me a good chuckle and reminded me that Facebook is where we go to hate the people we know, while Twitter is the place to go to love people you don't know.

In the Divisional Round, the Broncos are our strongest favorite, with 10 of us picking them to move on. Of course, Jason is the lone dissenter. Nine of us like Arizona to knock off the Packers and eight of us are not counting out Touchdown Tom.

Seattle-Carolina is being billed as the best game of this weekend, and for good reason. Both teams feature fantastic defenses, talented quarterbacks that can beat you in multiple ways, and both teams are riding a ton of momentum. It should come as no surprise then, that we are most split on this game with six of the 11 CJ staffers liking Seattle to earn a victory in Carolina.

Without further ado...
