NFL divisional round predictions

MCT

After an unusual wild-card weekend, in which there was only one close outcome (Cincinnati-Houston), it’s time to prepare for what should be a more exciting group of divisional round matchups.

In the AFC, we have a red-hot Denver Bronco team riding an 11-game winning streak, facing the Baltimore Ravens, who have upset more than a couple of teams in the last few playoffs.

Then, heading to New England is the underdog of all underdogs, the Houston Texans, who were smoked at Gillette Stadium just a month ago.

CONTINUE TO AFC DIVISIONAL ROUND PREDICTIONS

In the NFC, Aaron Rodgers and his elite receiving corps face off in San Francisco against the best overall defense in the NFL.

And in Atlanta, we have quarterback Matt Ryan with an opportunity to win his first playoff game. But against the top scoring defense in the league, the Seattle Seahawks, will the fourth time be the charm for Matty Ice?

CONTINUE TO NFC DIVISIONAL ROUND PREDICTIONS

With the conference championship games now in sight, get ready for a divisional round that will bring the excitement that was lacking from the wild-card matchups last weekend.
