Saturday Games

#4 Jacksonville Jaguars (10-8) at #1 Kansas City Chiefs (14-3)

Props to Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars for overcoming a 27-0 deficit against the Chargers last week, but I just can’t see the AFC South champions keeping up with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs: in what shapes up to likely be their only game at Arrowhead Stadium this postseason.

#6 New York Giants (10-7-1) at #1 Philadelphia Eagles (14-3)

The last time the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants played with real stakes, Philadelphia blew out New York. But in Week 17, with the Giants resting many starters, Jalen Hurts and the Eagles just squeaked by.

Philadelphia is still the better team, but it’s an NFC East playoff game: things could get interesting. But the only way I could see the Eagles losing is if they beat themselves.

Eagles win 27-24

#3 Cincinnati Bengals (13-4) at #2 Buffalo Bills (14-3)

This is the best game of the weekend and the postseason so far: with the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals finally set to face off after their regular season matchup was cancelled in the first quarter of play.

There’s not much to say about this matchup that hasn’t been said: Josh Allen vs. Joe Burrow should be awesome, and both these teams have what it takes to go all the way to Super Bowl 57.

It’s really a pick ‘em situation, and as great as I think Cincinnati is, someone has to lose this game: we’ll go with the home team.

Bills win 23-20

#5 Dallas Cowboys (13-5) at #2 San Francisco 49ers (14-4)

If the Dallas Cowboys play their best brand of football, this could be a thrilling finish to Divisional Round weekend. But with the San Francisco 49ers’ combination of offensive weapons and defensive prowess, Dak Prescott and company won’t be able to keep u

49ers win 35-24
