Celebrities Predict NFL Playoffs: Joe Theismann

Posted Jan 3, 2014

Colts.com targeted six public figures, insiders who cover the NFL and former quarterbacks to predict the playoffs from Wild Card weekend through Super Bowl XLVIII. All six will run today in intervals. Joe Theismann played for Washington from 1974-85, guiding the Redskins to two Super Bowls. Theismann offers his picks.



INDIANAPOLIS – With the NFL playoffs starting Saturday, Colts.com has targeted six public figures, insiders who cover the league and former quarterbacks to predict the course of post-season play.

 

Joe Theismann started 124-of-167 games with Washington from 1974-85, earning a 77-47 starting record while throwing for more than 25,000 yards.

 

Theismann was 6-2 in playoff action, including 1-1 in Super Bowls.  After retiring, Theismann had a very successful career as an NFL analyst. 

 

Here are Theismann’s predictions:

 

Wildcard Weekend

 

Kansas City over Colts:  Sorry about this pick, but I pick the Kansas City Chiefs because I believe their defense will contain Indy’s offense.

 

Cincinnati over San Diego:  I like Cincinnati in this game because I feel like they are one of the two most balanced teams in the playoffs.  Plus, they don’t lose at home.

 

Philadelphia over New Orleans:  I’m picking the Eagles in this game because I just don’t think the New Orleans Saints play that well away from their dome.  Also, LeSean McCoy is the best running back in football.  Eagles win.

 

San Francisco over Green Bay:  In the beginning of the year, I picked them to be in the Super Bowl, and their defense can contain Aaron Rodgers. 

 

Divisional Weekend

 

Denver over Kansas City:  Peyton Manning continues his “Magical Mystery Tour.”  I pick Denver because Peyton has too many weapons on offense.

 

New England over Cincinnati:  I’m taking the New England Patriots over Cincinnati.  I just can’t pick against Tom Brady/Bill Belichick with two weeks left to prepare.

 

San Francisco over Seattle:  I’m taking the San Francisco 49ers traveling to Seattle where San Francisco will shut down Marshawn Lynch and win a low-scoring contest.

 

Philadelphia over Carolina:  Philadelphia’s defense will contain Cam Newton and not allow him to make big plays with his legs.

 

Conference Championships

 

Denver over New England:  I pick Denver in this game because Denver’s defense will pressure Tom Brady.

 

San Francisco over Philadelphia:  I like San Francisco in this game because they will be able to shut down Philadelphia’s running game.

 

Super Bowl XLVIII

 

Denver over San Francisco:  I like Denver because I don’t believe San Francisco can take Peyton out of his game.  This Super Bowl is all about Peyton Manning's legacy.

Check back in 60 minutes for another playoff prediction from a celebrity, insider or former star quarterback.
