Hey everyone. The Divisional Round is coming up fast, and I’d like to offer my predictions on who will make it to the Championship Round. So, without further ado, here are my picks:
Minnesota at San Francisco
I think this game will be closer than some think. Minnesota has playoff experience, which I think helps them jump out to an early lead. I also think San Fran will settle down, and they’ll take a last second victory.
Minnesota 23, San Francisco 26
Tennessee at Baltimore
The Titans may have surprised a lot of people last week, but not me. Derrick Henry is an absolute beast, but Baltimore is a different team than New England. I think Tennessee keeps it close for the first half, but as Baltimore piles up the points, the Titans get away from doing what they do best.
Tennessee 21, Baltimore 31
Houston at Kansas City
Houston finds a different KC defense this time around. Watson gives them a puncher’s chance, but KC is coming off a bye, which makes Andy Reid virtually unbeatable. I think Mahomes gets rolling early, and that provides the difference.
Houston 24, Kansas City 35
Seattle at Green Bay
Probably the closest game of the weekend. Green Bay hasn’t blown anyone out and Seattle has been in nearly every game this year. I think home field advantage plays a part in this game, as it always seems to when these two play. Aaron Jones gets rolling, and then Aaron Rodgers picks apart a suspect Seattle secondary with play action. Russell Wilson keeps it close, but his history at Lambeau says he’s in trouble.
Seattle 17, Green Bay 21
Well there you have it. Please check back next week as I’ll make my picks on who advances to the Super Bowl. Thanks for reading and enjoy the games this weekend!
