NFL Playoffs: Divisional round quarterback rankings

NFL Playoffs: Divisional round quarterback rankings

Philadelphia was the Super Bowl favorite at one point before that injury.

It is going to be an interesting playoffs season no matter how this ends up turning out.

Super Bowl champion Drew Brees and his highly touted offense featuring wideouts Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. versus the Vikings stingy defense and secondary featuring All-Pros Harrison Smith and Xavier Rhodes.

The quarterbacks without playoff experience will be at a slight disadvantage but as Jared Goff, one of the most impressive quarterbacks this season showed, experience matters. The Falcons' playoff experience proved its importance against the Rams, who lacked the playoff experience necessary to make a deep run. Blake Bortles was a disaster, completing 12-of-23 passes for 87 yards while also adding 10 rushes for 88 additional yards. The Pats' odds to win the Super Bowl have dropped from +210 before last weekend to +200. Why?

Plains GP (PAGP) Research Coverage Started at Bank of America
Finally, BidaskClub upgraded Plains GP from a "strong sell" rating to a "sell" rating in a report on Tuesday, October 31st. The investor is now holding $4.64 million shares due in part to a decrease of 455424 new shares in their portfolio.

The team with the next-best odds to win the Super Bowl and the team with the best odds from the NFC is the Vikings, who are 17/5. Nick Foles had a great game against the Giants the week after he had to step in for the injured Carson Wentz but he was a disaster on Christmas night when the Eagles squeaked by the Raiders. Like Foles, the Eagles don't have much playoff experience, which could lead to some problems. The Titans don't appear to be almost the threat to New England that the Chiefs would have been. They started 4-4, barely squeaked into the postseason, and then upset the Los Angeles Rams on the road in the wild-card round to move on.

On Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Jacksonville Jaguars kick off the festivities.

However, the Steelers are too strong for the Jaguars, and the Patriots seem likely to overwhelm the Titans.

So which teams will come out on top and advance to the conference championship games? The Jaguars dominated the first meeting in Week 5, beating the Steelers 30-9 as the defense picked off Ben Roethlisberger five times. Ignore the noise from the outside and I feel like that's what myself, a lot of other players have been doing. As noted by The Star Tribune, teams competing in the Super Bowl get roughly 17.5 percent of the ticket revenue to the game, with the league getting 25.2 percent and 34.8 percent being shared between the rest of the NFL franchises not playing or hosting the game. This will bring the Falcons and the Vikings in the final match to determine who among them will play in this year's Super Bowl.
