Playoff games. Who ya got?

26.2 : 1/12/2019 10:10 am
I'm going Indy, Dallas, NE, NOLA.
Chiefs, Cowboys  
joeinpa : 1/12/2019 10:12 am : link
Saints, Chargers
Four really good match ups this weekend.  
johnnyb : 1/12/2019 10:14 am : link
I cannot root for Eagles or Dallas, but I do think the Cowboys can beat the Rams.

Chiefs too much for Colts, Saints ring it up again on the Eagles and the Chargers squeak one out against the Pats.

Best Bet- Chargers +4

63 percent of public is on the chargers. That means bet NE

A good wager may be colts on the ML. Bad weather game colts can run the ball and protect the ball and control the los
I'm taking road teams today and home teams tomorrow

Bad weather in KC favors Indy. KC are all about speed and big plays, and a cold and slick field will limit that. Colts can pound the ball.

Goff hasn't been the same since Cooper Kupp went down, and it's effected the mojo of their entire team. Dallas can stop the run, and Dak will make enough plays to pull off the upset (although I hope I'm wrong on this one)

NE is so dominate at home in the post season that I just can't see SD going there, in 20 degree weather, and winning.

And Saints strength is their passing game, while Philly weakness is their secondary. I think of all 4 games this one will be most lopsided in terms of score. 31-13, Saints.
Take the colts and the points

I agree with all this except. I see dak coming up short this week and the rams sell out to stop the run. Rams run d isnít very good so they need to figure something out to slow down zeke.
I think the Colts and Chargers are dangerous.  
Optimus-NY : 1/12/2019 10:50 am : link
I think they'll both win. Give me both home teams in the NFC this weekend: Rams and Saints.

KC
LA Rams
LA Chargers
New Orleans

The Dallas hype train is in full force as usual but they arenít winning this game. Iíve seen this story before. Dallas wins a few games, everyone in America fawns over their talent and predictions of Super Bowl dancing in their heads.

Then Jason Garrett reminds us all why heís...Jason Garrett. Itís like clock work. Every single year itís going to be different. Then it isnít...
KC, I fear Cowboys,  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 1/12/2019 10:57 am : link
Chargers, & Saints.
Chiefs - I think their past playoff issues end this weekend  
Jimmy Googs : 1/12/2019 10:59 am : link
Rams - I think really close game (maybe even OT) with Goff doing enough to get by at home

Chargers - seems to be popular upset pick but I do like the idea of them getting in Brady's face

Saints - another close one but Brees at home seems tough to pass on



the nfc east loses  
jeffusedtobeonwebtv : 1/12/2019 10:59 am : link
rams and saints win.

cots win. I can see the patriots chargers game going either way.
Chiefs, Cowboys,Saints and Pats  
Rick in Dallas : 1/12/2019 11:07 am : link
Chiefs finally win a home game in the snow. Cowboys too physical for Rams in close game. Zeke out gains Gurley and control the clock.
Tomorrow it is all about Brady and Brees.
Indy, Dallas, San Diego, Phily

An NFC East Championship game is going to happen, sadly......
rams, saints, KC, chargers

I've parlayed Colts +5.5, Dallas +7, and NE -4. Looking to cash in on almost $800 if I'm lucky.

NO

One thing I don't get is why NO being the #1 seed gets to play on Sunday and have the most rest possible but the #1 seed Chiefs play Saturday and in the earlier game taboot.

I'm sure it's TV ratings related but it seems to me the #1 seeds should both get rewarded win the extra day. While it doesn't seem like much it just doesn't sit well with me when stuff like that isn't equal.

I think you have it backwards actually. The number 1 seeds just had an entire week off. Iím sure if they had to decide theyíd rather play Saturday this week and get an extra day going into next week
I think all home teams win

Maybe so but next week isn't guaranteed and this week is. Give me the extra day this week so I have as much time as possible for my guys to heal up and have the best possible chance to move on to next week.

Either way, I still think the two #1 seeds should play on the same day. The unbalance just bugs me. Not a huge deal obviously but it doesn't sit right with me. Both Conferences should be lined up the same IMO.
Ind, Dal, NE, NO

Colts keep rolling Chiefs go full Reid
Dallas wins a shootout
The Patriots find a way to win at home
Brees and Saints too much for the Eagles in the dome
Colts, Rams, Chargers, Saints

PaulN : 1/12/2019 3:04 pm : link
Saints, Rams, Colts, and Patriots. I want to pick the Rams, but this pick is a heart pick, I am very nervous that the Cowboys will beat the Rams. I was four for four last week, easy picks in my opinion, this week is tougher by far.
Indy, Saints, Rams, Chargers

It as nothing to do with the 1 or 2 seed it's who they play. The teams that win the in the wildcard round on saturday always play on saturday in the divsion round. Same for Sunday.
