NFL Divisional round: Picks, predictions and more

13 Enero, 2018, 05:04 | Author: Thomas Hicks

Home teams are in all caps.

Tennessee (+13) at New England, Saturday - The Patriots are rested.

The Falcons spent the regular season trying to ignore questions about a Super Bowl hangover, and their silencing of the Rams last Saturday night shows how unsafe a playoff-hardened team can be.

Like the Bills last weekend, there's a strong chance the Titans could slip into the "just glad to be here" mindset and lose by a touchdown or more.

Still, let's give Tennessee tremendous credit for how it rallied in Kansas City.

Here are the Eagles Wire's staff predictions for the divisional-round battle between Philadelphia and the Falcons. The Eagles, playing without injured quarterback Carson Wentz, have had a week to try to fix the offense.

That's because, after quarterback Nick Foles' very bad performance during the last two regular season games, I'm not exactly brimming with optimism and am wary of spreading skepticism, in case it's contagious.

"I feel really good, like, I feel really good", said Ajayi, who has been bothered by knee issues. "Is it interesting to anybody at the table that [Chargers running back] Melvin Gordon has 22 yards against them, or [49ers running back] Carlos Hyde has 25, or [Bears running back] Jordan Howard has six?" The Eagles are the first team in National Football League history to be the underdog as the one seed versus the six seed.

Ben Roethlisberger threw five picks the last time he played the Jaguars.

Nick Foles will start in his first playoff game since 2013.

. Ryan will have to play his best game to get back to the NFC Championship game for the second consecutive year.

"It just kind of became my persona on the field, where I'm kind of a nice guy off the field, real chill".

Celek is the only current Eagles player left from that team. They have talent and a roster full of players who probably resent their team success being boiled down to Wentz alone.

LeGarrette Blount has clearly been usurped by British born Jay Ajayi in the backfield as the number one back.

The Eagles are the top-ranked unit against the run, but less impressive against the pass at 17th in pass yards allowed.

In the Falcons' three games against the Eagles since 2012, Jones averaged eight catches for 133 yards and a touchdown. If Pittsburgh jumps on Jacksonville early, it may get ugly. This game will be close and low-scoring, but don't be surprised when the Jaguars come out on top 15-13. In this craptastic pool of AFC playoff teams, not so much. It won't be an easy game, but I expect the Eagles to come out on top 24-20 and face the victor of the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings on January 21st. It will make like hard on Matt Ryan and company, even if the offense struggles with Foles. As all but Mike Pelaia predicted, New Orleans handled their business at home and now make a trip to the home of Super Bowl LII to face the Vikings. The most obvious one is home-field advantage, which is particularly important to Minnesota this season. He's played in quite a few playoff games, including last year's Super Bowl.

These two teams have met three times in the playoff.
