The 4 Remaining NFL Playoff Teams

The Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs wrapped up last weekend with 8 teams in action.

Coming off an impressive defensive performance against the Texans, the Colts looked to knock off the first seeded Chiefs in a game many picked them to win. However, their improbable run to the Super Bowl was cut short by Kansas City’s unstoppable offense led by MVP favorite Patrick Mahomes. In a surprising turn, it was Kansas City’s defense that stepped up, holding Andrew Luck and the Colt’s offense to only 6 points.

In the other AFC game, the Chargers traveled to the Patriots looking to punch their ticket to the AFC Championship game. The New England offense torched LA with relative ease, though, and the Chargers were sent home in a game that was hardly ever competitive.

In the NFC, the Rams were able to take care of the Cowboys in large part due to their running game. Young quarterback Jared Goff did just enough to propel the Rams to the win, but LA will most likely lean on their running game again in the NFC Championship game.

The Eagles faced the Saints in a rematch of what was a blowout for the Saints earlier this season. This time around, Philadelphia was much more competitive, jumping out to a 14 point lead before being shutout in the second half. While the legend of Nick Foles has come to an end, the Saints will continue their playoff run, hosting the Rams at home next weekend.

With the pool of NFL playoff teams dwindling down to only 4 after the weekend’s games, we look forward to the Conference Championship games next weekend.

Saints 45 Rams 44

The Saints are gonna keep marching and win this high scoring affair against the Rams. Alvin Kamara and Todd Gurley are two of biggest studs of this season and have rattled defenses all year long. Not to mention, the quarterback play is alright; the future HoF’er Drew Brees put up nearly 4000 yards and 2 touchdowns with a 74% completion rate and Jared Goff had himself over 4600 yards and 32 touchdowns. Their defenses are fairly weak, but you will not hear NFL fans complain… This matchup has the potential for a combined triple digit score that could blow some records out of the water.

 

Chiefs 31 Pats 28

Both offenses are on a tear and are facing each others’ subpar secondaries. While a complete shoot-out similar to the Rams Chiefs game during the regular season would be expected, the game will be played in the snow which will inhibit the passing game. Both the Patriots and the Chiefs put up four rushing touchdowns last game although, so this should be an epic showdown between the young phenom MVP front-runner Mahomes and the greatest player of all time.
