Divisional round playoff predictions

Playoff predictions from this weekend's divisional-round games:

Saints 27, 49ers 20 -- Love the 49ers' turnaround story and want to believe defense wins championships, but see the explosive Saints having enough to get by.

Patriots 35, Broncos 17 -- The feeling here is that the Patriots are ready to explode, and it's a tough spot for the Broncos to hit the road on a short week after an emotional win.

Ravens 30, Texans 13 -- Some questions about Joe Flacco and the Ravens' offense, but not at this address. Would set up AFC championship game at Gillette Stadium (if Patriots prediction comes through) on Sunday, Jan. 22 at 3 p.m. ET.

Packers 35, Giants 28 -- Love the Giants' toughness and see them playing the Packers tough, but can't go against Aaron Rodgers after a bye.
