The NFL playoffs are known for being unpredictable, and the Indianapolis Colts validated that. There are sure to be many more unexpected moments in the conference championship games.
In the Divisional Round of the 2014-15 playoffs, most of the favorites came away with victories as they hosted their games.
However, the Denver Broncos fell to the Indianapolis Colts, 24-13. Quarterback Peyton Manning had one of his worst playoff performances ever and is contemplating retirement.
The New England Patriots stormed back from a 28-14 deficit against the Baltimore Ravens as quarterback Tom Brady shined with three touchdown passes while leading an incredible comeback.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers put on a killer show despite playing with a calf injury while Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson decimated the Carolina Panthers defense with three touchdowns.
Here are five bold predictions for the conference championship games.
5. T.Y. Hilton will be held to under 50 receiving yards
The Colts wide receiver has had a season to remember with 1,345 receiving yards and seven touchdown catches. However, he has proven that he can be vulnerable against the pass defenses. Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis held him to three catches for 24 yards in their last meeting. Although Hilton is expected to put on a better performance, Revis Island will be ready for him once again. Look for the Colts’ speedy receiver to be held under 50 yards again.
