NFL RUSH
Underdogs: Which Team Will Rise to the Occasion

Many NFLRushers have made their picks for this weekend's WIld Card round of the NFL Playoffs. Do you agree with the picks? Which underdog has the best chance to pull the upset?

 

Detroit Lions
Only 13% of NFLRushers think they will win against the Saints. While they have some big weapons on offense with QB Matthew Stafford and WR Calvin Johnson, it would be a mistake to shoot it out with QB Drew Brees. Their best chance is going to come with the defensive line getting a lot of pressure.

 

Broncos 
Just 20% of NFLRushers picked the Broncos to win against the Steelers. The Game is in Denver so there's already a bit of help with the home field advantage. There's no question that QB Time Tebow will need to play well but their best chance at a victory is to attack on defense and force turnovers.

 

Falcons
41% of NFLRushers are on the Falcons train this weekend yet they hold the a better record than the opposing Giants. QB Matt Ryan is capable of a big game but their key to victory will be protecting their QB. The Giants defense is all about the pass rush and Ryan will need some time in the pocket to have success.

 

Houston Texans
46% of NFLRushers think the Texans will get the victory but that makes them the underdog against the visiting Bengals. Third-string Rookie QB T.J. Yates will have to lead the Texans into their first playoff game ever and that leaves a huge question mark. Their best chance on Saturday will come from their defense. The Texans D was ranked second in the NFL this season.
