San Francisco 34, Atlanta 21
Atlanta is a tough, tough out, especially in the Georgia Dome. Matt Ryan is ridiculous at home, 34-6 regular and playoffs combined. San Francisco will get it done, though. Colin Kaepernick's too much of a threat to an Atlanta defense that can get leaky at times. They struggle against running quarterbacks by giving up an average of 8.9 rush yards per quarterback attempt. Seattle nearly beat the Dirty Birds, the 49ers will beat the Falcons.
Baltimore 35, New England 33
Everything about this says, "Patriots." Tom Brady is being Tom Brady (speaking of ridiculous at home, 86-15 career record!). Belichick's got a running game. I cringe thinking about how awful I've seen the Baltimore Ravens play at times. Something happened to this team, though. Last week, they were slammed with every reason to lose on the road to Denver, but they didn't. Flacco stepped up. Smith stepped up. Everyone on the team played phenomenal and I think they roll on to New Orleans.
Quick note: We can welcome these new professionals to the Bears coaching staff.
