DraftKings NFL Playoff Divisional Final Thoughts

The NFL Is Reportedly Concerned About The Chargers Potentially Hosting The AFC Title Game AFC Championship Could Be Played At LA Coliseum

Kansas City will have a full head of steam going into next week's game against the victor of the Los Angeles Chargers and New England Patriots (1:05 p.m. ET, Sunday).

Another one of the divisional round National Football League predictions from the model: The under (47.5) hits when the Chargers visit the Patriots on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. ET. The Pats are undefeated at home this season. The Eagles surprised everyone with a win last week against Chicago, and look to keep that momentum and underdog magic going. Something has to give.

The NFL's conference championship games will be decided this weekend, as eight teams will square off for four spots in what promises to be an intriguing divisional round.

The Rams now await the victor of the divisional-round matchup Sunday between the NFC's top-seeded New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles before they make their first appearance in an NFC Championship Game since 2001. For the NFC, it would be the LA Rams against the New Orleans Saints. But this Philly team has changed a lot since then and they proved last weekend that even with all the injuries to their defense, they can still hold the opposition. However, we've seen Drew Brees torch this team for 33 DraftKings points in Week 11.

One of my pivots this week is Andrew Luck.

Saturday night, L.A. went to great lengths to slow down Dallas' offensive engine.

Indianapolis Colts linebacker Najee Goode (52) blocks a punt by Kansas City Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt on Sunday.

His team down 24-7 late in the third quarter, Leonard was in coverage when Patrick Mahomes threw a dart to Sammy Watkins. But their defense is suspect.

The Colts-Chiefs kick things off on Saturday at 4:35 pm ET.

Browns to Hire Cleveland Native Mike Priefer as New Special Teams Coordinator
It was one of several reasons why general manager John Dorsey made the recommendation to hire Kitchens as the next head coach . He did an outstanding job in his role as coordinator, and we know that will continue as he steps into the role of head coach.

"This is where Dallas's season ends".

Instead, everything has gone perfectly for the Rams backfield, and McVay handled the situation just as he should've.

Mahomes and the rest of their own high-powered offense took care of the rest, rolling to a 31-13 victory in the divisional round to end 25 years of playoff frustration. They will probably have to lean hard on Ezekiel Elliott in this one, but with the Rams' ability to put up points quickly, Dallas has to play perfectly.

Playing at home helps, and Mahomes said he's eager to get another home game in the AFC Championship.

Saints over the Eagles: The Eagles are peaking but the Saints have been peaking all year-long. Prior to those two wins, New England had lost three of their last five games which were all on the road but still it seems like we are slowly seeing the decline of Tom Brady.

Patriots over the Chargers: Gillete Stadium in January with the visiting team traveling clear across the country?

Remember when Kenny Moore was an undrafted free agent who couldn't cut it in New England? However, in an awesome matchup, a $100 bet on Brees eclipsing 290.5 passing yards nets $92.59.

After shattering almost every franchise passing record, Mahomes picked up right where he left off in his regular-season finale. But that was back in November.

"He's a guy that's played in big-time games". But it really didn't matter. That will continue against an Eagles defense that is good but not great.
