What experts are predicting for the National Football League divisional round games

What experts are predicting for the National Football League divisional round games

MVP favourite Patrick Mahomes displayed his customary flair, passing for 278 yards and running a score as the Chiefs used their potent offense to jump on the Indianapolis Colts early en route to a 31-13 win in snowy Kansas City on Saturday.

The Patriots haven't looked quite as good as expected, but this is the postseason. The Pats are undefeated at home this season. Something has to give.

Dallas' elite linebacking corps suffocated the Seattle Seahawks' run-heavy attack in Arlington last Saturday night, but key changes in venue and opposing personnel will be make it hard for the Cowboys to get past the Rams.

That care with the football will be especially important against the Chargers, who had three takeaways against the Baltimore Ravens in the Wild Card Round, giving them seven takeaways in the last two games.

On Sunday, the Rams will watch the Saints-Eagles divisional-round game, knowing whichever team they face has defeated them before.

It's a full weekend of playoff football. We still got one more. But Kansas City hasn't missed a beat because of Williams, a journeyman who has played so well in climbing from the No. 3 running back to the starter that he's already earned a contract extension. And of all the teams coming off byes, New Orleans is the most balanced. And they have caught fire. "Here's why we don't-L.A.'s plus-143 point differential was third-best in the entire league; Dallas' plus-15 mark was worst among all playoff teams and two that didn't make the final cut".

In the 2018 playoffs, KC was leading 21-3 and lost 22-21 after Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass to himself and Derrick Henry ran all over that Chiefs D. Dallas tries for a comeback and they are able to get an early drive which ends with Elliott getting them their first TD. But their defense is suspect.

The defence has the option of making a further appeal to the country's supreme court, based in the capital Naypyidaw. Adler said in a statement issued shortly after the judge's ruling.

"We wanted to light up the city", Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones said.

Against the Cowboys, Goff returned to the efficient and effective form he displayed in the first 11 weeks before he hit a late-season slump.

For our defense, as we are fading Gurley and the Rams WR's, we might as well go with the Cowboys who certainly have the talent on the defense side to give the Rams offense some trouble.

Are you picking against Brady? "The first one I just didn't get good footing". Aqib Talib covering covering Amari Cooper. I remember watching that game and even though the Chiefs ended up winning 30-0, I still thought they were going to blow it. And, oh yeah, the QB is the NFL's all-time passing yards leader. That number rises to 68 percent in their more experimental version of Elo, which adjusts based on each team's starting quarterback. Some people think the Pats are more mortal this year, and rightfully so. The Chargers have to travel across the country again.

New England was 8-0 at Gillette Stadium, the only flawless home record in the league. Pats 34, Chargers 24. They allowed 487 total yards and 45 points, including 346 yards through the air as Drew Brees picked apart the secondary. The Saints did it in Week 9, while the Eagles shocked everyone in Week 15 by beating the Rams at the Coliseum, 30-23. But that was back in November.

They call him St. Nick around Philly, and the way Nick Foles has performed, why not?
