Detroit Lions (#6) at New Orleans Saints (#3)

The second Wild Card match-up this Saturday features a battle of two high flying offenses. For the first time in NFL history, two 5,000 yard passers will meet. While the Patriots have no real stake in this game, tonight's match-up certainly looks like it will be a barn burner, and a great game to watch overall.

I've got New Orleans in this one. While the Lions are a fun team to watch and quarterback Matthew Stafford is one of the best young quarterbacks in the league, I think that Detroit is too immature and inexperienced and I think that will show up tonight. The Saints are on a roll, and have the hottest offense in the NFL right now. I think the game will be relatively close, but I don't see the Lions coming out on top.
