NFL divisional round picks are an important part of the NFL playoff schedule because it features four highly anticipated games. These games tend to provide the best quality football on the schedule. Here are a few divisional round picks:
San Francisco at Green Bay
The N.F.L. playoff field has shrunk quite predictably and the spreads are very close – only one team was out of the division and the spreads reflect this. In this week’s divisional round, the San Francisco 49ers face the Green Bay Packers. Both teams received byes in their first round games. Despite Derrick Henry’s injury, the Titans will be loaded with young talent in the backfield, and Green Bay’s defense will be a formidable challenge for any run-centric offense.
The 49ers dominated the Packers in the regular season, but Rodgers’ offense has struggled in recent years, and the Packers have no such luxury this year. The 49ers have won nine straight road games and are coming off an upset of the Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round. If they can’t get Rodgers to the other sideline, they should be fine. However, the 49ers’ secondary has been a gloomy factor for the Niners this season, so it’s worth noting that they aren’t as impressive on defense as they once were.
Buffalo at Kansas City
If you’re looking for some Buffalo at Kansas City in divisional round pick values, this is the game for you. This game is a rematch between the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs, who played each other in Week 5 of this season. While the Chiefs were impressive against Buffalo, the Bills have been on fire since then and will be looking for revenge after losing to the Bills 38-20 in October.
The Bills looked better than their record and defense during the regular season. They finished second in the NFL in total defense and pass defense, with a plus-194 point differential. They also ran the ball well, racking up seven drives and scoring a touchdown. In addition to that, they were ranked No. 2 in Football Outsiders’ DVOA, behind only the Cowboys. Buffalo was able to stifle the Cowboys’ rushing game in their victory over them last month, and they looked great against the Patriots this week. However, the Bills’ offensive line was a complete mess.
The Chiefs’ offense has had some problems in the past, but that’s changing. The Chiefs finished with an 80.8 quarterback rating. Last week, Patrick Mahomes had a career-high four touchdown passes, but his offense had a couple of miscues. It was also hard to believe that Mahomes had an off day in Week 8 in his first game against the Buffalo defense. With a healthy Mahomes and an improved offense, this game should be a breeze for Kansas City.
Tampa Bay at Los Angeles
The Rams are favored over the Buccaneers, and this game is a perfect example of why. The Rams are coming off a win against the Buccaneers in Week 3, and a win over the Bucs is always a big deal in playoff games. The Bucs had a difficult time against Brady during the regular season, but now that he’s healthy, the Rams’ offense should be able to score points in this game.
The Buccaneers’ defense was a major weakness last season, but Matthew Stafford was on his game Sunday. He threw seven touchdowns and two interceptions, and was sacked just one time. But Stafford has his problems when the Rams rely on the passing game, and the Rams’ pass defense was the third-best in the league. The Bucs’ pass defense surrendered just 92.5 yards per game.
The Rams’ defense played well down the stretch of the season, allowing only 17.1 points per game. Against the Buccaneers, their lack of offensive weapons should catch up to them in the divisional round. The Rams are three-point home favorites against Tampa Bay, which marks just the third time L. A. has been favored over a team all season. If the Rams win this game, they will be favored by more than seven points.
Cincinnati at Tennessee
In a game featuring the AFC’s top team and one of its most exciting upstarts, Cincinnati at Tennessee is a great matchup. The Titans, who won their first playoff game in 31 years last weekend, will have a full arsenal to use against the Bengals. The Bengals, meanwhile, have shown signs of inspiration in the passing game. The Titans’ defense is questionable, but Derrick Henry is expected to play.
This game will be a must-see for fans of both teams. The Titans are a top seed, while the Bengals are a lower seed. The Titans are favored to win, but the Bengals have won four straight games. The Titans have a history of success against the spread, and they have the talent to win this game. Despite their recent success, the Bengals must stop Derrick Henry to get the job done.
The Titans are a solid bet for this matchup. They’re 4-0 when allowing their opponents to rush for fewer than 75 yards. In the passing game, Tennessee is a top-three wideout team. If they can keep Derrick Henry healthy, they can pound the Bengals’ pass defense and limit their opponent’s wideouts to just 100 yards per game. If you’re a fan of a certain wideout, consider taking them against Tennessee.
Kansas City at Kansas City
Both teams are favored to win the Super Bowl. But both teams have some flaws that make it difficult to pick a winner. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Bills QB Josh Allen are likely to make some mistakes and the game will come down to them. But if you’re betting on the Chiefs to win, you should consider the Bills. They’re one of the best teams against opposing tight ends.
The Bengals’ offensive line is a weak point against a potent passing attack. The Bengals allowed the Bills to rush the quarterback nine times in the Divisional Round, and the Chiefs will most likely try to exploit that weakness to score. However, the Chiefs have been impressive at home this season, going 9-2. Bengals have also proven they can win on the road against a better seed.
Chiefs: The Chiefs were desperate to address the safety position. After drafting Josh Allen in the divisional round, they released safety Daniel Sorenson. That gave them enough flexibility to pursue Cook and McDuffie. Cook and McDuffie have similar attributes. They’re both physical hitters with good ball skills. Both players can play in a zone package. But the Chiefs haven’t gotten everything they wanted out of Cook yet.
Titans at Bengals
If you’re looking for a solid pick for this divisional round game, you can’t go wrong with the Tennessee Titans at Cincinnati Bengals. Tennessee finished 12-5 this season and won the AFC South for a second straight season. They also earned the top seed in the conference and received a first-round bye, a rare feat since 2008. On the other side, the Bengals won their division for the first time since 2015 and knocked off the Las Vegas Raiders in the playoffs. This game will be interesting for fantasy football players, as both teams will have a lot to prove in the postseason.
The Tennessee Titans’ run defense ranks second in the NFL this season, and their veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill has struggled down the stretch. The Bengals, however, have a veteran quarterback who’s capable of overcoming a poor defense. They’ll need to slow down Joe Mixon and create pressure for Joe Burrow. As for the Titans, they have lost three of their last four games at home.
Rams at Bucs
If you’re looking for a great game to watch this Sunday, consider taking the Rams at the Bucs. This game features a matchup of two teams that have a lot to lose, and if one of those teams wins, you’ll have a chance to pick up your first-round pick. Both teams have mediocre defenses, and the Rams’ defense needs a win.
If you’re looking for a game to watch for a great playoff matchup, consider the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Los Angeles Rams. The Bucs have beaten Philadelphia in the wild-card round, and they are favored by a field goal. However, the Rams have a great quarterback in Matthew Stafford, and if he plays well, they could take down the Bucs.
Unlike last week, the Bucs have a lot of key pieces to their offense and defense. They added Odell Beckham Jr. and Von Miller in the offseason, while the Rams have added a lot of talent to their roster. On defense, the Bucs may be missing All-Pro tackle Tristan Wirfs due to injury, but they will have most of their starters back. In the secondary, Lavonte David and Jason Pierre-Paul are back from injuries.
