You called it: Fearless predictions (Week 19)
By Mike Sando
710ESPN Seattle radio host Dave Grosby put me on the spot Thursday by asking whether I thought Seattle or Chicago would win in the NFC divisional round Sunday.
I leaned toward the Bears, figuring their defense would play too well and force turnovers.
But in the back of my mind, I allowed for the Bears' nightmare scenario: a loose Seattle team taking the lead at Soldier Field, Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz straying from the run and quarterback Jay Cutler blowing the game with interceptions.
We'll get to the prediction part of this weekly item soon. First, though, I wanted to recognize CoasterNiner for calling the New York Jets' victory and 17-16 final score against Indianapolis in the wild-card round. Way to go.

Good luck to all.
