Some would say this weekend of the NFL is the best weekend of the entire season. It’s the divisional round, and the final 8 teams are ready to go at it to see who will advance to the conference championship games.
On paper, the Patriots should be able to get by the Titans without too much of an issue, but it is the playoffs, so you never know. Also in the AFC, the Jags will be looking to upset the Steelers.
Pittsburgh will be looking for some measure of redemption after getting stifled by “Sacksonville” during the season in one of Big Ben’s worst games in his career as he threw 6 interceptions.
The NFC gives us Case Keenum and the Vikings against Drew Brees and the Saints. It’s old vs new here in a battle of QB’s. I tend to go with the more experienced QB in this scenario. Which also leads me to believe that the Falcons will upset the Eagles in a match up of Matt Ryan vs Nick Foles.
That being said, the Falcons would still have to get past the Saints and the Pats would have to get by Jacksonville or Pitt. But we could be on a collision course here for a Super Bowl rematch and chance at redemption for the Falcons.
