Being that Marquis Teague is a big Indianapolis Colts fan and the NFL playoffs start this weekend, RedEye put the Bulls rookie's prognostication skills to the test. His unshakable loyalty is, of course, understandable. —B.C.

AFC WILD CARD ROUND

Cincinnati vs. Houston

Teague's pick: Texans (Citing the "Jimmy Butler effect")

Indianapolis vs. Baltimore

Teague's pick: Colts (Naturally)

Results:

NFC WILD CARD ROUND

Minnesota vs. Green Bay

Teague's pick: Vikings (He's an Adrian Peterson fan.)

Seattle at Washington

Teague's pick: Seahawks (Citing the "Nate Robinson effect")

AFC DIVISIONAL ROUND

Houston at New England

Teague's pick: Patriots

Indianapolis at Denver

Teague's pick: Colts (He is a Peyton Manning fan, but said he can't pick against his squad.)

NFC DIVISIONAL ROUND

Minnesota at Atlanta

Teague's pick: Falcons (Because his brother lives in Atlanta and plays for the Hawks.)

Seattle at San Francisco

Teague's pick: Seahawks (Nate Robinson is quite influential, isn't he?)

AFC CHAMPIONSHIP

Indianapolis at New England

Teague's pick: Colts

NFC CHAMPIONSHIP

Seattle at Atlanta

Teague's pick: Falcons

SUPER BOWL

Indianapolis vs. Atlanta

Teague's pick: Colts

There you have it; Indianapolis is headed to the NFL summit. We'd like to thank Teague for his predictions, but unless the Colts have a "Hoosiers"-type miracle in them, he might not want to quit his day job.
