Predictions for 2018-19 NFL Divisional Round

Predictions for 2018-19 NFL Divisional Round

The Pats are undefeated at home this season. Something has to give.

Patrick Mahomes picked apart the Colts in his post-season debut, the Chiefs defence answered their chorus of critics with a stout performance, and Kansas City rolled to a 31-13 victory over Indianapolis in the divisional round Saturday to end 25 years of playoff frustration.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes didn't throw a touchdown pass in Saturday's AFC divisional playoff victory, but he did run for one score. Could happen. But a better bet is that New England picks Rivers at least once and that the Patriots do what they do, relentlessly: win at home in the playoffs.

It's a full weekend of playoff football. "We're talking about the trophy and if you saw all that money, you'd get excited, too". First, there is the six seed Indianapolis Colts who few thought would get out of Houston. Due to this seemingly unstoppable team makeup, the Saints are going to take the cake in this one. And they have caught fire. "It is definitely different from what we are used to, but it makes it a little more lively, makes you want to jump around and dance more and stay warm", Chiefs fan Teah Nguyen said.

The NFL's leader in receptions (125) should be extremely fresh coming off a bye week and limited snaps in the regular-season finale against the Panthers. However, the Chargers certainly have more than a puncher's chance at an upset and, according to one report, a win for the franchise would present an interesting conundrum. But their defense is suspect.

The Patriots haven't looked quite as good as expected, but this is the postseason. Yes, The Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott just won his second rushing title, going over 1400 yards.

Are you picking against Brady? Jared Goff's TD-INT ratio is an alarming 6-6 since November 19's game against Kansas City, but his home splits were impeccable in 2018 (22-3 TD-INT ratio compared to 10-9 on the road). "The first one I just didn't get good footing". Aqib Talib covering covering Amari Cooper. The Patriots are near ideal at home and the Chargers are near flawless, 8-1, on the road. "The Chiefs cruise at speeds the Colts rarely ever hit". Some people think the Pats are more mortal this year, and rightfully so. But they do expect the Eagles to give much better accounting of themselves than they did in November in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome when the Saints pulverized them to a fine powder. On his drive to Arrowhead Stadium that January morning in 2004, Kansas City quarterback Trent Green, hoping that a rainy chill would greet the visitors from a domed stadium, rued the weather.

New England was 8-0 at Gillette Stadium, the only ideal home record in the league. Pats 34, Chargers 24. "But for all the Foles mania, it remains to be seen if Philadelphia's defense can slow down Drew Brees and the Saints' offense", Paine writes. The Colts will be a Super Bowl contender for the next 5 years as long as the front office doesn't screw it up. But that was back in November.

Nick Foles is the Mr. January of the National Football League and all he has done the last two years is win.
