Kibbles and Picks – Divisional Round 2018

Not going to lie – I feel a little better.

Sure, I suffered predictive indignity at the adorable little paws of my dog Stella yet again this NFL season. It’s not like I’m not used to it by now.

But things like this past Wild Card weekend certainly do buoy my spirits and let me feel – even if for a moment – that maybe my dog isn’t actually smarter than I am.

Kibbles and Picks – Wild Card Round 2018

Longtime readers of The Maine Edge are likely aware of our ongoing web-based feature Kibbles and Picks, wherein I spend every NFL season attempting to pick more winners than my dog Stella. The 2017 season marked our fifth foray into these waters. Stella had emerged triumphant in three of the four previous years, including the last two.

And now it’s a three-peat.

NFL Playoff Preview Conference Championships

And then there were four.

After the grueling four month season and two weeks of high-intensity playoff games, we are left with four NFL teams that still have a chance to make their way to the Super Bowl and compete for the Lombardi Trophy.

2012's postseason attrition continued this weekend as four more very good teams were proved to be not quite good enough. The Denver Broncos, the Green Bay Packers, the Seattle Seahawks and the Houston Texans all find themselves on the outside looking in as the playoff dance continues. Each team fought the good fight the Broncos and Seahawks were especially dogged in their pursuits but in the end, they came up short.

NFL Playoff Preview Divisional Round

The road to Super Bowl XLVII is paved with four fewer teams as the list of playoff teams has been pared from 12 down to eight. And so we bid a fond farewell to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Minnesota Vikings, the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Redskins; each of these teams had an exceptional year, but their respective seasons have come to an end.

Moving on to the Divisional Round, the path is about to get a good deal rockier for the Wild Card survivors each one of the first round winners now has a daunting matchup ahead, going on the road against a higher seeded team that has had an extra week of rest and recovery. Even so, the Lombardi Trophy is still very much up for grabs.
