2013 NFL Playoffs Betting Odds: Looking at the NFC Matchups For Wild Card Weekend
For the third time this season, the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings will face each other as the 2013 NFL Playoffs get under way this weekend with the Wild Card round. For a team that was looking at a possible first-round bye, the Packers have nobody to blame but themselves for falling to the No. 3 seed as they failed to come up with the big win on the road in their regular-season finale against the Vikings last Sunday.
Adrian Peterson has single-handedly carried Minnesota to the postseason this year as he’s recorded 409 rushing yards against Green Bay in two games during the regular season. The Packers’ defense has been far from impressive at times this season and if they can’t figure out a way to shut Peterson down–they could be looking at a possible upset Saturday night.
The Vikings may be the underdogs heading in, but don’t be surprised if they cover and keep it close with their NFC North rivals.
As for the other NFC matchup this weekend, the Seattle Seahawks will face the Washington Redskins on Sunday as this game consists of two of the top rookies from the 2012 season. All eyes will be on Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin III in this one as these two stars have helped their teams make miraculous runs in the second half of the regular season.
It’s one thing to see a rookie quarterback lead their team to the playoffs, but to see two of them square off against each other in the playoffs is something football fans don’t get to see every day. Don’t be surprised if Seattle pulls off the win in this one–especially since they have the advantage when it comes to defense.
