NFL Divisional Rounds Predictions
Now that you know the match-ups, who will win? So, based on experts, many are picking these teams to face off in the conference finals.
For Saturday’s match-up of the Kansas City Chiefs and the Indianapolis Colts; the Colts defense allowed the fewest points in the NFL. Consequently, the Chiefs have scored the third most points in the NFL. Will the Colts defense hold off the Chiefs from putting up points?
Of course, this game can go either way, but experts are picking the Chiefs to win.
For the match-up of the Los Angeles Rams and the Dallas Cowboys; the Rams have shown vulnerability in several games. However, the Rams are heavy favorites against the Cowboys.
On Sunday, we have the New England Patriots who are 12 – 2 in playoff games at home playing the Los Angeles Chargers. Will the Chargers defense pose problems for the Patriots offense? Surprisingly, even though the Patriots have been undefeated at home this season; the Chargers are the slight favorite.
Finally, will the Eagles surprise everyone? The New Orleans Saints have one of the best offensive and defensive lines, so the Saints are expected to move on to the Conference rounds.
