We're back with yet another NFL playoff preview, as THG helps readers make predictions for the second round of this mini-tournament via a series of in-depth, vital comparisons between teams. So far, they have yielded the following results:
- The New Orleans Saints will knock off the San Francisco 49ers.
- The New England Patriots will throttle the Denver Broncos.
Up next: the Baltimore Ravens versus the Houston Texans. Let's find out which will win and why...
FANTASY FOOTBALL STUD:
Ravens: Ray Rice
Texans: Arian Foster
NUMBER OF PLAYERS CONVICTED FOR OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE IN A MURDER INVESTIGATION:
Ravens: One (Ray Lewis)
HOMETOWN WAS THE FICTIONAL SETTING FOR:
Ravens: HBO's The Wire
Texans: NBC's Chase
WOEFUL LOCAL BASEBALL TEAM:
Ravens: The Orioles
Texans: The Astros
Ravens: An Edgar Allen Poe poem
Texans: Every resident of the state
THE VERDICT: This one won't be very close, as the Texans can only muster one category win and another tie. That's what happens when a rookie quarterback goes on the road in the NFL playoffs, and also when NBC cancels Chase after just a few episodes. Bet Baltimore big.
WHO DO YOU THINK WILL WIN?
