After an eventful filled Wild Card Weekend, we now move to the Divisional round in the NFL Playoffs. I was lucky enough to pick all of last week’s games correctly. Now let’s see if we can do it again.

Bengals (11-7) vs. Titans (12-5)

The Cincinnati Bengals have been riding the momentum wave in the second half of the NFL Season. The Bengals defeated the Las Vegas Raiders in a pretty convincing fashion in their previous matchup. Cincinnati will look to make it to the AFC Championship for the first time since 1988.

Tennessee is the number one seed, and they’ve gotten here without their phenomenal Running Back Derrick Henry for half of the season. Henry returns for the first time since Halloween; he last played a game against the Indianapolis Colts. Henry was the league’s leading rusher when he hurt his foot. This game is hard to pick, I will take Cincinnati in a close one over Tennessee. However, I could see this game going either way.

Pick: Bengals over Titans 28-24

Packers(13-4) vs. 49ers (10-7)

The history between these two historic franchises is far from over. From Bart Starr to Joe Montana to Aaron Rodgers, both of these franchises are ready to win now. Possible MVP for the second straight year in Aaron Rodgers is looking to break through the barrier and get to his second Super Bowl. The 49ers had a very solid win last week against the Dallas Cowboys, running the ball effectively with Deebo Samuel and Elijah Mitchell.

Reports say Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is banged up from an injury along with Pro Bowlers Fred Warner, and Nick Bosa. For these reasons, I will go with the Green Bay Packers on Saturday.

Pick: Packers over 49ers 34-24

Buccaneers (14-4) vs. Rams (13-5)

Kicking off the Sunday NFL games, the defending Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers looked solid in their win last week against the Philadelphia Eagles. It’s always hard to pick against Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, as well. Brady is going for his eighth Super Bowl Ring, he already has more Championships than every NFL Franchise.

The Bucs, however, have lost some starters due to injury and could be in trouble with a banged up offensive line against this physical and elite Rams defense. The Rams are led defensively by Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey, and Von Miller.

If the Rams want to win this game, they have to get some pressure on Tom Brady. If Brady is going to have all day, he will most likely dissect a defense play after play.

Rams Quarterback Matthew Stafford will have to be very efficient. This game is full of future Hall of Fame players. We will see who takes the win on Sunday. I’m sticking with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as much as I would like to see the Rams win.

Pick: Bucs over Rams 31-28

Bills (12-6) vs. Chiefs (13-5)

If you are a fan of Elite Quarterback Play and Quarterback Film, I urge you to watch this game. The quarterbacks of these teams are immaculate talents in the NFL, Josh Allen who’s 6’5 and has an absolute cannon of an arm. He’s also very shifty and throws a beautiful deep ball that soars like the sky.

For the Chiefs, it’s Patrick Mahomes, who every weekend is making amazing throws and plays all the time.

Both of these teams have something to prove. For the Bills, they’re looking to make their first Super Bowl since the ‘90s when they went to four straight Super Bowls and lost every single one of them. The Chiefs are looking to get back to the Super Bowl after getting whacked last year by Tampa.

This is the hardest game for me to pick. It could be an All-Time Classic Playoff Matchup.

Pick: Chiefs over Bills 35-31
