WHO YA GOT? Pick the winners of the NFL Divisional round

Super Bowl LII Odds With Wild Card Weekend Over Check Out This 40/1 Long Shot

The New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers enjoyed first-round byes in the AFC while the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings were the top seeds in the NFC. And Ryan's Falcons are favored to beat the top-seeded Eagles in Philadelphia, despite the Eagles' 13-3 record. I like the Saints a lot but the Vikings just seem more complete to me. The last two weeks of the regular season, they scored a combined 10 points at home against the Raiders and Cowboys, neither of which made the playoffs.

But the Jaguars' playoff hopes will live and die by how their defense plays, and right now, there is no team better at stopping the pass. The Saints' young secondary has vastly improved over the course of the season to the point where they finished ninth in the NFL in adjusted yards per pass attempt, according to Pro Football Reference. Foles does not have the accuracy, mobility, or the wow factor that Wentz possesses. Falcons win 20-10. Quarterback Tom Brady finished the regular-season as the third-most valuable quarterback per ESPN's Total Quarterback Rating and was instrumental in the team scoring a league-leading 2.6 points per drive, almost a point per drive more than the league average (1.8), and the 12th best scoring efficiency since 2002, the year the league expanded to 32 teams. Bing was two of four in wild-card predictions, also missing the Tennessee Titans' upset win over the Kansas City Chiefs. I fully expected the Chiefs to blow them out, and that appeared to be the case in the first half. "I know, for us, this is a great game, and it's a playoff game, but it is a football game". It's also imperative that Villanueva and Gilbert help open up lanes for running back Le'Veon Bell to burst through. Mariota was consistently on the big stage in college, and he looked prepared for the intensity that came with postseason play. A victory over the Titans will send the Patriots to the AFC championship game for the seventh straight season. Because of some troubling locker room rumors circulating I believe this Patriots team will be extra motivated, as if they needed an extra edge to play with. The Jaguars have a young, hungry, and extremely talented defense, but their offense is very bad.

Unlike the Bills, the Pittsburgh Steelers will score more than 3 points.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be out to prove that 30-9 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5 was a fluke. I say this is with good reason!

Trump's Pressure on North Korea Actually Fostered Peace
Early in the peace process, Trump criticized Moon for appeasing Kim , who as North Korea's dictator has sustained a brutal regime. To enact the strategy, the USA would respond to some North Korean provocation with a limited strike.

Gronkowski isn't going to make life any easier, as evidenced by his 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in 14 games (in reality 13, as Gronk was never targeted in the final game and more or less got an unofficial day of rest before the playoffs). Steelers win 24 to 7.

Each NFL divisional-round game has crucial matchups that will be key components in determining the four winners on Saturday and Sunday. As I mentioned before, Drew Brees looked great against Carolina, but going up against the Vikings defense will present a much more hard challenge. Its defense has allowed 8.9 fewer points per game than expected in 2017, the second-best mark behind the Jaguars (12.8) this season and the 16th best effort since 2002. I keep hearing that the Eagles will shutdown the run and make them one dimensional. "Keep heading to the Super Bowl so we can win that".

The No 1 ranked defense of the Vikings goes up against the No 2 ranked offense of the Saints!

"I think experience in general is great", Keenum said.
