Sam’s AFC Playoff Preview

Yesterday was tough. We had to watch the Jets advance further into the playoffs. Kind of a bummer, but we can still root against the Pats today!

On that note, here are the previews.

Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens still have a nasty defense, and it would be nastier if they could get injured Ed Reed back soon. Terrel Suggs and Ray Lewis are a tremendous linebacker duo, and DT Haloti Ngata is one of the best. The Ravens offense also took a big step forward this year. They have two young stars in second year QB Joe Flacco and second year RB Ray Rice. Rice had a great 5.3 yards per carry average, which led to 1, 339 yards rushing this season. Flacco threw for 3,613 yards, as well.

New England Patriots: I don’t like him, but as long as you have the comeback player of the year Tom Brady, you do alright. Randy Moss is also a pretty good target to throw to, but the won’t have the reliable Wes Welker after he tore an ACL last week.  The defense is led by veteran Defensive Linemen VInce Wilfork and Ty Warren, as well as vet LB Adalius Thomas. They also have some young guys on D, in LB Jerod Mayo, and safety  Brandon Merriweather.

New York Jets: As we’ve seen, they can win games if the run the ball. RB Thomas Jones had a great year, running for 1,402 yards. Rookie QB Mark Sanchez had shown some potential, but he needs to throw high-percentage passes if they want to win the game. One of the leagues best Defense is led by linebackers David Harris, Calvin Pace, and Bart Scott. Also, CB Darrel Revis is one of the leagues best, having shut down many big-name receivers, and coming up with 6 interceptions,

San Diego Chargers: In the past years, this has been a dominate rushing team without much of a pass threat. Now, with LaDainian Tomlinson aging, they have become a great passing team. QB Philip Rivers came in 3rd in MVP voting, after throwing for 4,254 yards and 28 td’s. His top target is Vincent Jackson, and TE Antonio Gates. On defense, they are led by star LB Shawne Merriman and CB’s Antonio Cromartie and Quentin Jammer, who had a combined 6 ints.

Indianapolis Colts: In the end, this game team comes down to one man, and thats MVP Peyton Manning. He threw for 4,500 yards and 33 td’s. His main target, Reggie Wayne is also one of the leagues best WR, and his 2nd target Dallas Clark is one the leagues best tight end. Notice a pattern? The defense is led by one of the best defensive ends, Dwight Freeney, who had 13 sacks and 9 forced fumbles.
