The best postseason tournament in professional sports begins this weekend, as the NFL Playoffs get going with two games on Saturday and two on Sunday. The Cincinnati Bengals travel to Houston to face the Texans in Saturday's first game. This should be a great matchup, especially with Houston looking vulnerable lately. The cheerleading advantage definitely goes to Houston, and football-wise it does too. I say Houston gets it together and wins 27-17.

The second game on Saturday is Minnesota at Green Bay. Adrian Peterson rushed for more than 400 yards in their two meetings this season, but the Packers say he won't go for 200 again. Cheerleading advantage goes to the Vikings, but I see the Packers winning the game, 31-14.

Sunday kicks off with Indianpolis traveling to Baltimore. The Ravens haven't looked so hot lately and they could be in trouble. Baltimore wins the cheerleader battle in this one, but not by much. I think Andrew Luck and the Colts win the game though and upset the Ravens, 24-17.

In the final game of the weekend, it's rookie vs. rookie as Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin III go head to head with Seattle visiting Washington. The cheerleading matchup here is as tight as the actual game will be. It's hard to bet against Seattle the way they've been playing lately. Seattle squeaks it out, 28-24. Enjoy the games.
