- Winner for the postseason will be announced after the super bowl.
Keep up on the standing on the Playoff
How We Picked
- Playoff Standings
- We were 2:4
- Home teams were 2:4
- Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis had said that he would be leaving the team after this season, so of course he just signed a 2 year extension through the 2019 season?!?
- Cardinals QB Carson Palmer
- Cardinals HC Bruce Arians
- The Bears have hired Matt Nagy as their Head Coach. He was the Chiefs O Coordinator.
- The Raiders re-hired Jon "Chucky" Gruden as their Head coach. A 10 year 100 Mil deal.
- If you're interested, the Carolina Panthers are officially up for sale. No asking price was listed, but I'm betting my credit line is gonna come up a wee bit short for me to make an offer.

- Falcons (10-6) @ Eagles (13-3)
They never met in the reg season. The Eagles are the first #1 seed to be an underdog to a #6 seed. What a difference losing your starting QB makes. This is going to be outdoors in the cold & that has to be an advantage for the Eagles, esp. if passing becomes a problem due to weather. Regardless, the Eagles are going to need to rely on their D as their primary way to win games from here on out, but I’m still rooting for Foles to play well.
Current odds - Falcons by 2.5
- Titans(9-7) @ Patriots (13-3)
They never met in the reg season. The Titans stunned the Chiefs in the WC round. If they manage to beat the Pats, any charity that Mariota donates to will be happy as Steelers and/or Jags fans will donate as much or more than Bills fans did for Daltons charity (even if the Bills playoff run was short lived)
Current odds – Patriots by 13
- Jaguars (10-6) @ Steelers (13-3)
The Jags thumped the Steelers @ 3 rivers in week 5, 30-9. It’ll be a lot colder this time, which is a big advantage for the Steelers but I’m not sold on the oddsmakers spread on this. I have a feeling this is going to be close til the very end.
Current odds – Steelers by 7.5
- Saints (11-5) @ Vikings (13-3)
The Saints lost @ the Vikes in week 1, 19-29. This time the Saints won’t have AP, which is probably a good thing. They have 2 dynamic RB’s both with over 1,500 all purpose yards this season – an NFL record – and no ego to try and appease. The Saints will still have to get past the Vikes staunch D and have to play some D themselves which hasn’t been their strong suit in seasons past.
Current odds – Vikings by 4
