Levack's Locks For The NFL Divisional round

23 Referee Ron Torbert Explains Controversial Call From Patriots Titans Playoff Game

Derrick Henry: An interesting stat from Titans beat man Jim Wyatt: Henry had 191 total yards last week, which broke a franchise record by Billy Cannon that stood for almost 60 years. I feel like it is too easy to start cheering for the New England Patriots since, frankly they win all the time. Tennessee will ultimately lose the game but not by two touchdowns. However, their first playoff appearance since 2008 will nearly surely end on Saturday in Foxborough. But a good pass rush can make up for that. "At this point, I'm all in on Tennessee". I like Jacksonville on the road, especially after they handled Pittsburgh during the regular season. He spoke anonymously - "probably best if you don't run a name with this" - and cautioned about his picks "don't bet the college fund for the kids on what I'm saying" - but this general manager sits with his team out of the playoffs and eager to watch the Divisional Round. I am also always cheering for the Vikings a little bit just because Stefon Diggs who went to Maryland and I always try and support former Terps.

The Jaguars' league-low 68.5 passer rating against also puts them in prime position to move forward. They took advantage of critical Rams special teams turnovers and converted them into points, while the defense took care of the young Rams offense.

While oddsmakers have consistently had the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers in a two-team race for the AFC title, the NFC has been a more complicated picture.

And when Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is under pressure, he is much less effective. The Steelers' defense limped down the stretch and hasn't been the same since linebacker Ryan Shazier was lost for the season.

For about three and a half quarters last week, it looked like the Titans were going to get run out of the building before staging an epic comeback against Kansas City. There's a quarterback with plenty of playoff experience in Matt Ryan. He is also just the fifth quarterback since 1999 to record a touchdown pass and reception in the same game. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles were resting, getting ready for their home game this week. They've each won five Super Bowls. The Eagles, on the other hand, are on a steep decline.


History has already been made in the Divisional Round of the National Football League playoffs. The Eagles, who won the NFC East with a 13-3 record but are missing injured quarterback Carson Wentz, hold an 18-14-1 all-time mark against the Falcons, with the last win coming in 2016. Foles is a solid backup, but so far he has had trouble integrating himself into the offense that was so successful with Wentz.

For the first time in playoff history, a No. 6 seed is a road favorite over the top seed in the Divisional Round. I don't buy that and even if it were true Julio Jones anyone???

The NFL Wild Card round is in the books, so For The Win's Charles Curtis and Steven Ruiz are back with another slate of NFL picks. Enjoy the games this weekend as it is the last time we get really football on both days till next summer.

Minnesota Vikings +6.5 (from -3.5) vs. He completed 12 of 23 passes for 87 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions and actually was more productive on the ground (10 carries for 88 yards) than he was through the air. Minnesota has covered in 19 of its last 25 home games including six of eight this season. Despite Case Keenum's success this year, I still don't know if I trust him to get it done on the big stage. I believe the Vikings win at home, but they will not blow out the Saints. This team plays with a unique swagger that reminds me of a young Seattle Seahawks team, and against the Carolina Panthers they showed why their offense is so risky.
