I guess I'm going to "pull" for the Rams from here on out.

I'm tired of Rodgers, Brees. The Chiefs don't annoy me like the others.

Saints over Bucs
Rams over Packers
Chiefs over Browns
Bills over Ravens

I'd go with a Chiefs/Rams Super Bowl.

The NFL would hate that. Of all the NFC teams left, the Rams are the least desirable to watch.

Saints over Bucs.

KC over Cleveland.

Baltimore over Buffalo.
Packers roll

I think the Packers win by 14+, that offense is a machine.

Browns have a punchers chance of Mayfield plays efficient. They should be able to run it and eat some clock. If you go through KCs schedule they play pretty much nothing but close games. I’d lean KC to pull it out late in a 31-27 type game.

Ravens D was lights out v Tennessee, that’s the game of the week for me. Bills have no running game. It’s no secret what’s happening there. Allen throwing and running. I think Bills win 27-20.

The old men round 3 is blah for me. Lean Saints with the better D and being at home, but that can go either way.

I have Packers playing the Bills Ravens winner in the SB. And as I said I lean Bills, but it will be a great game.
I hate the Rams.

Packers over Rams (not a fan of Goff)
Saints over Bucs (think this one will be tight)

Ravens over Bills (going to be a fun game)
Chiefs over Browns (closer than people think)

Early thoughts

Yep that’s right I said the Browns. Chiefs have been Playing with fire all year and now they’ve had a week off playing a confident Browns team getting their guys back and will out physical this KC team. Really liked what I saw from Baker in his first playoff game and he made some big time plays in 1h to make sure they kept a stranglehold on the game. Guy is certainly a gamer and can make a few plays off the Browns getting their run game dominating.
I think the is the year Rodgers does it

I'm going to say Pack-Chiefs in the SB and Rodgers outguns Mahomes in the big game.

Of all the teams left, the Bills are the only team I can actually pull for. I dislike every other team left for one reason or another. I like Josh Allen.

For some reason it's always funny to see Rodgers get eliminated from the playoffs in a blow out.
Easy weekend

KC -10
Baltimore +2
Green Bay- 7
Tompa Bay +3
I really think the Rams have a chance

they had the best defense in football all year, I would go so far as to call it clearly the best defense this year.

#1 in Passing Yards allowed
#1 in Passing TDs allowed
#1 in Net Pass Yards/Attempt
#2 in Sacks
#3 in Rushing Yards allowed
#3 in Rush Yards/Attempt
#4 in Rush TDs allowed

They have the best DLineman and overall defender in the league in Donald (although he's banged up). They have the probable best defensive back in the league in Ramsey. This is a loaded defense that performed at an extremely high level all year. IF Donald is healthy enough to perform at his usual standard, they definitely have a chance to slow down the Packers offense.

The Packers are also missing Bakhtiari who is the 2nd or 3rd most important player on their team (behind Rodgers and maybe Adams). They are signing Jared Veldheer who just started a game for the Colts to replace him.

Rodgers is on the short list of best QBs I've ever seen and may be the most impressive overall talent I've seen at the position. But as great as Rodgers is, we've seen plenty of games from him in the past where he gets overpowered by a superior defense and kind of stops trying for big plays. The 19/32, 220 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT passing line where he gets punched in the mouth and kind of retreats.

I still think the Packers will probably pull it out but I think it's almost a toss up game. Donald's health concerns me for the Rams but if he's good to go I would not be surprised if they upset the Packers.
I'll Play

From 2nd in points allowed in 2019 to 16th this year.

They lost players in the off-season and the replacements are not as good.

Gave up almost 500 yards to the Colts last weekend and got gashed on the ground. And that was going against a totally immobile QB in Rivers.

Maybe they get past the Ravens if they can tilt the game and make Jackson throw. I don't see them getting past the Chiefs.

Bills are my remaining rooting interest but I've watched them enough that I don't believe in that D.

I agree. I'll be pulling for the Bills and their O will score points, but they are still getting their playoff feet beneath them. They lost the lead last year against houston and nearly did it again against Indy in a game they should have won by 14-20.

And Murray beat them earlier this season by keeping plays alive.

Gave up 217 yards rushing to Arizona; 245 yards rushing in loss to Chiefs; and couldn't stop anything in 42-16 loss to Titans.

Those are some unusual numbers for a 14-3 team.
