The Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs is considered by many to always be the best weekend of the NFL season. This year is no different as we have 4 different match-ups that showcases some of the best talent in the NFL from Tom Brady in New England to Dax Prescott vs Aaron Rodgers in Dallas.
Can the Houston Texans pull off the biggest upset in recent memory? Can Seattle and Pittsburgh overcome injuries in their games? Does Aaron Rodgers have one more miracle play left in him vs the Cowboys?
Read on as we give our predictions for this weekend’s Divisional Round weekend games!!
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS vs ATLANTA FALCONS
LIZZIE: Falcons 35, Seahawks 31- I just have a feeling about the Falcons this year. And if it’s not now, when?
NADIA: Falcons 35, Seahawks 31. I predicted Atlanta to win the NFC. Matt Ryan is a MVP contender and I expect him to keep playing like one. Seattle will be exposed.
CHARLES: Seahawks 23, Falcons 21 – I just feel like the Seahawks are like a bad penny. They just don’t go away with that defense of theirs.
HOUSTON TEXANS vs NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
LIZZIE: Patriots 45, Texans 12- Is anyone even going to watch this game? There’s no suspense here. We already know who the killer is.
NADIA: Patriots 42, Texans 17 -I am surprised Houston made it this far. I’m also surprised this is considered a playoff game.
CHARLES: Patriots 37, Texans 10- Tom Brady is going to have a field day against this Texans defense and ESPN will proclaim it greatness again. SIGH.
PITTSBURGH STEELERS vs KANSAS CITY CHIEFS
LIZZIE: Steelers 28, Chiefs 19 – I want to pick anyone but the Steelers, I just don’t trust the Chiefs as far as I can throw them.
NADIA: Chiefs 24, Steelers 21 -I’m going on a hunch that Kansas City upsets Pittsburgh.
CHARLES: Chiefs 17, Steelers 14 – I just feel like the Chiefs have a underrated defense and it will be enough versus a banged-up Big Ben and Steelers team.
GREEN BAY PACKERS vs DALLAS COWBOYS
LIZZIE:Cowboys 31, Packers 28-Though one to call. I’m just going to assume the Cowboys are not just a regular season team and the magic can translate to the playoffs.
NADIA: Cowboys 31, Packers 28. The Packers are on a win streak, but I think Cowboys win this by a field goal. Also, I want the Packers to lose.
CHARLES: Packers 35, Cowboys 31 – Sorry but I picked against Aaron Rodgers last week and was wrong. Not making that same mistake twice. Not with his hot streak going.
