NFL Divisional Playoffs Q&A: What are the odds …?

NFL Divisional Playoffs Q&A: What are the odds …?

But that factor will be tested in all four Divisional Round games.

The question of who will win the Super Bowl is something that a lot of people ask themselves all throughout the year.

Steven: The Titans are going to attempt to stay in the game by grinding out the clock on the ground.

Tennessee's pass defense, meanwhile, ranked 24th per opponent-adjusted DVOA and allowed the second-highest passer rating to quarterbacks when they targeted their running backs out of the backfield (106.2). The run game will keep it that way. An angry Tom Brady is usually at his best. When it comes time for the playoffs, Bill Belichick is quite possibly the most risky man in the NFL. These guys maximize mistakes, but will have a much tougher matchup in Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Martavis Bryant. The Saints can play defense, but they also own arguably the league's best offense. Using the win rates that fuel our weekly power rankings, which take into account a team's actual record and what its record should be based on points scored and allowed - also known as its Pythagorean win percentage - simulating the playoffs 5,000 times, the New England Patriots and Eagles have the best chances of winning Super Bowl LII.

The Patriots defense will be key as they are playing Marcus Mariotta, a young quarterback that has struggled to get anything going this season. Jacksonville, who beat the Buffalo Bills 10-3 to set up a meeting with the Steelers, enjoy a surprising 13-11 all-time record over Pittsburgh, including a 30-9 victory in October.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan enters Saturday's game with a passer rating of at least 100 in five consecutive postseason games, tied for the second-longest streak in National Football League history. And with this being a best bet, there's more to it than that.

Simons and Dadis told The Wrap they each filed police reports with the LAPD about their respective allegations against Seagal . She grabbed her clothes and ran as Seagal asked her if she needed any money: "I shook my head and ran towards my vehicle .

The Falcons have won three of their last four road games, and Philadelphia has totaled less than 220 yards of offense in its last two home games.

If we were to just pick which team has the better QB between Drew Brees and Case Keenum? With the return of Chris Hogan, James White and possibly Rex Burkhead, Gronk has the most secure role in New England's offense, and Tennessee is a defense to be picked on near the goal line.

I was 2-2 straight up and against the spread last week. They are literally a wild card since the injury of Carson Wentz. That's what Eagles fans will be hoping helps their team win. He looks poised to lead his Saints back to the NFC Championship game for the first time since he won it all in 2009.

The Atlanta Falcons traveled across the country to Los Angeles last week where they pulled off a road upset of the NFC West champions to advance to the Divisional Round with a 26-13 win. The Eagles are the lone home underdog of the weekend, as Atlanta is listed as a 3 point favorite. Prediction: Eagles 17 - Falcons 14. With a healthy Carson Wentz, that implies the Eagles would be favored by more than a touchdown at home against Falcons. If they get into a 21-3 hole against the Patriots at Gillette Stadium, there probably won't be any digging out of it.

"I would imagine your first time, your first experience playing in a playoff game is going to be a little bit more hard", Bortles told reporters Wednesday. More teams are starting to play man or a press cover 3 look, which messes with the timing of Brady's throws and allows the defense to get hurries.

This brings the theme of the week full circle. Vikings receiver Adam Thielen is turning into a star with 91 catches for 1,276 yards and running back Latavius Murray started to come on over the last month of the regular season. That seems to be the case Saturday in Philadelphia, which makes it time to strike.
