From Bettis to Bell with all the Redman, Parker and DeAngelo’s in between. What is the situation in Pittsburgh with the running back position?
The Kansas City Chiefs are heading back to the AFC Championship game for the second season in a row, this time hoping for a different result. Last season, the Chiefs fell to the Patriots in overtime and were just an off-sides penalty away from going to the Super Bowl. This season, they will face the Tennessee Titans, a team that the Chiefs are familiar with due to their match-up earlier in the year where the Titans took the win in dramatic fashion in Tennessee.
Well its finally time to crown conference champions this weekend and see who the final two teams will be. It’s always exciting to see who shows up in the playoffs whether as a surprise team or a team with a bye that continues to play strong. Both games this weekend should be exciting as both have the line at about a touchdown for the home teams. This means that the scores could stay close. There is also the added appeal that both games are going to be repeats of previous meetings from the season. So, if the games were not important enough there is also the added sense of revenge for both the Chiefs and the Packers heading into these vital games. The matchups are exciting especially when you look at DFS plays for this weekend.
The Tennessee Titans are headed to the AFC Championship game for the first time since 2002. Tennessee shocked the NFL world on Saturday night by rumbling over the top seeded Baltimore Ravens 28-12. And it all started with Derrick Henry wearing down the Ravens defense during the course of the game. He imposed his will by rushing for 195 yards on 30 touches and added a jumping TD pass.

What a game the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints put on for us last Sunday. The Vikings played like I haven’t seen in a long time. It seemed like all the stars had finally aligned for Minnesota and they took advantage of it. Yes, they made a few mistakes, but in the long run, they made more winning plays then not, and that is why Minnesota came out on top in the 26-20 Win in overtime.
What is often regarded as the best football weekend, the Divisional Round of the playoffs is here, and it is shaping up to live up to that moniker. Including a few matchups we don’t get a chance to see very often. One of those being in the NFC, between the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings. A matchup between two teams who are built strikingly similar but have followed different paths along the season. Today I’m going to preview a few of the matchups in this divisional round game, a long with some keys to victory for San Francisco
The Philadelphia Eagles made it to the playoff finish held together by scotch tape. However their playoff hopes ended with a Carson Wentz concussion and the 40 year old Josh McCown doing his best but still on a losing end to the Seahawks 17-9. Even with the injuries they have building blocks with Wentz, Sanders, Goedert, Dillard and steady vets such as Brooks, Johnson, Cox, Graham and Jenkins if a deal is finalized. With a long offseason ahead for Howie Roseman, he needs to make some tough decisions and try to reload for another playoff push next season. Here are my thoughts on the 16 free agents for the Eagles and whether they should stay or they should go.
After ten seasons in Dallas, Jason Garrett has been relieved of the head coaching job for the Cowboys. The cowboys have a loaded roster and they just have not been playing up to their potential in the eyes of their owner Jerry Jones. It was a strange shift into the offseason for the Cowboys as they did not immediately remove Garrett from his position publicly until they had already begun to interview for the head coaching position. After a short search, it appears that the Cowboys found their new head coach in Mike McCarthy.
Watson and company take the show on the road to Arrowhead where they will attempt to abracadabra the Kansas City Chiefs out of the second act of the postseason. It will also be the second time the Texans travel to Arrowhead this season, the first being a 31 to 24 victory for Houston back in Week 6.
With the Ravens win against the Cleveland Browns 31-15 in week 16 they moved to 13-2, gaining there 11th consecutive win of the season. Their last loss was recorded in week 4 to the first matchup against the browns where the Ravens lost 40-25. The Ravens winning in the second matchup, have now secured the number one seed in the AFC. This will be the first time the Ravens have secured a number one seed and home field advantage for playoffs. With the win making the final game against the Steelers irrelevant to the Ravens season, Harbaugh announced he would rest key players to have an extra rest for their 12th playoff appearance in franchise history.
During the Summer, a lot of drama was centered around Malcolm Jenkins and his no show to OTA’s as the rumor started about wanting a new contract extension. In spite of that, Jenkins was a full participant in both mini & training camp continuing to lead by example with his leadership, versatility and off the field work. When Jenkins came to the team after the 2013 season in free agency, I had my doubts considering I wanted Jairus Byrd or TJ Ward over the former Saints safety. When we signed Jenkins he was apart of the Saints defense that came off one of the worse statistical defenses in league history. However 6 years has passed and I’m willing to admit I was wrong. Both Ward and Byrd are out of the league and Jenkins has made two pro bowls, an all pro in 2015, and helped the Eagles win a Superbowl in 2017. Still at 32 years old Jenkins is still having a very good season and has helped the Eagles get to the playoffs for the 3rd straight year in a row.
After narrowly escaping the Detroit Lions with a win in Week 17 the Packers earned themselves a bye for the first week of the playoffs. It was an ugly victory but the Packers did what they needed to do and in the end Mason Crosby came through with a time expiring field goal.
