Divisional Playoffs


#5 Kansas City Chiefs @ #1 New England Patriots

New England finally gets to take the field in the playoffs, and once again their facing the Kansas City Chiefs. A rematch from seasons past and week 1, the result ends in similar fashion, with New England on top. Kansas City needs to learn that you can’t win consistently with a mediocre QB at the helm. The GOAT gets it done once again. On to the next one.

#3 Pittsburgh Steelers @ #2 Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders played well enough to earn a bye week and home field advantage in this round. Those both pay off and help the Raiders take down the Steelers in the Bay. This will set up a rematch from the 2001 playoffs and the tuck rule game, something Oakland fans have long been waiting for.


#4 Arizona Cardinals @ #1 Green Bay Packers

Arizona falls in the frozen tundra to Green Bay. The Packers are still able to fly around in the blistering cold and snowfall, while Carson Palmer struggles to command the Cardinals offense.

#3 New York Giants @ #2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay had an amazing season and it is nice to see them earn a home playoff game, but they don’t yet have the necessary experience to take down an opponent like the Giants. The NFC Championship game will pit two legendary franchises against one another in Green Bay.
