San Francisco 49ers vs LA Rams: Conference Championship

January 25, 2022 @ 5:47 PM

San Francisco vs L A Rams

Here we go, round three between two of the biggest rivals in the NFC. The 49ers have taken both games this season, including the stunning come from behind victory in Week 18 to clinch the playoff spot. Does anyone want to play the 49ers right now? Especially a Rams team that hasn’t been able to figure this team out on both sides of the ball. It’s a credit to head coach Kyle Shanahan to be able to gameplan a different script every time the team takes the field. The 49ers do have some key injuries though which is likely why we get the 3.5 instead of just a flat 3.0. First, Trent Williams had an MRI on his ankle that came back clean, but the team is unsure if the All-Pro tackle will be able to suit up. Then, Deebo Samuel was .........

NFL Conference Championship: Cincinnati vs Kansas City

January 25, 2022 @ 5:31 PM

Cincinnati vs Kansas City

After what was likely the game of the year on Sunday between the Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills, the AFC Championship game against the Bengals might seem like a letdown. The Chiefs shouldn’t get too comfortable with their victory though. In Week 17, the Bengals beat Kansas City 34-31 in Cincinnati in what was one of the best games of Joe Burrow’s young NFL career. But heading to Arrowhead in the playoffs is a different beast. Burrow commented this week that the SEC games get louder than any NFL stadium he has been in. Needless to say, the Chiefs faithful will likely be up to the challenge.

As for the game, there is a major disadvantage between the Bengals offensive line and the Chiefs defensive line. But then again, we said .........

Buffalo Bills @ Kansas City Chiefs in Divisional Round 2

January 22, 2022 @ 11:44 AM

Buffalo Bills vs KC Chiefs

I will preface this preview by saying that everyone and their dog are on the Bills this week, which never ends up well. In fact, I haven’t heard of a single person on the Chiefs, and the line hasn’t moved at all. The Bills marched into Arrowhead back in Week 5 and won handily 38-20. Buffalo has been the more consistent team this year and is coming off slaying the AFC East dragon by eliminating the Patriots from the playoffs in convincing fashion. So why isn’t this line coming back down towards Buffalo? Is it because the Chiefs are the reigning AFC champions and deserve the respect? Probably. For the first time in several seasons, the Chiefs are looked at as disorganized and inconsistent. How often would we be touting a .........

Los Angeles Rams vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

January 22, 2022 @ 11:27 AM

LA Rams vs Tampa Bay

The defending champs had their way with the Eagles last week, but the Rams are definitely more of a threat. I think this is a game where Brady will miss Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown, especially if Jalen Ramsay covers Mike Evans. The 1-2 punch of Sony Michel and Cam Akers won’t be as effective against the Tampa Bay run defense, but the Buccaneers secondary will also have trouble keeping up with Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr. The Rams beat the Bucs in Week 3 by a score of 34-24, where Kupp had 9 catches on 12 targets for 96 yards and two touchdowns. The major question mark in this game is going to be if Brady’s two offensive lineman Ryan Jensen and Tristan Wirfs can be healthy enough to play and be effective. Brady is .........

San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay Packers -5.5

January 21, 2022 @ 9:58 AM

San Francisco 49, Green Bay Packers

One week after eliminating the Dallas Cowboys, the 49ers get to travel to Lambeau Field to take on Aaron Rodgers. Queue the narratives that Rodgers is still bitter about not being drafted by the 49ers, a team he is 0-3 against in the NFL playoffs. San Francisco left Dallas with a victory but also suffered some key injuries. As of now, it looks like Nick Bosa and Fred Warner will be able to suit up on the defensive side, while quarterback Jimmy Garopollo will be playing with a mild shoulder sprain. The key here, especially with Garopollo’s injury, is that the 49ers are going to run the ball all game long. Run with Mitchell, run with Deebo, and make quick, short passes on third down to sustain the drive. Anything to keep Rodgers off .........

Cincinnati Bengals @ Tennessee Titans: Divisional Round One

January 21, 2022 @ 9:29 AM

Bengals vs Titans

For the second straight week, the Bengals play in the earliest game of the weekend, but this time they have to travel to Tennessee to take on the rested Titans. How rested are the Titans? The injury report was pretty much clean this week aside from the players already on the IR. In fact, Derrick Henry returned to practice this week and is expected to suit up for the first time since fracturing a bone in his foot midway through the season. The Bengals are coming off a fairly convincing 26-19 victory over the Raiders last Saturday. It was convincing because the Bengals really didn’t play all that well, showing some understandable nerves for the game. The good news for the Bengals, defensive end Tre Hendirckson and defensive tackle ......

Will the Tennessee Titans Continue to be Super Bowl Contenders

January 19, 2022 @ 3:59 PM

For the AFC we’ll go with a team that somehow took the first overall seed in the conference this year. The Titans are scrappy and well coached, and they are getting back the most dominant player in football in Derrick Henry. The bye week likely gave AJ Brown and Julio Jones some time to heal, which can only help Ryan Tannehill who had to pull some games out of his hat this year with his main offensive weapons sidelined. The problem with Tennessee is they are as shaky of a top seed as we have seen in recent years. Are they even guaranteed to beat Cincinnati? The Titans handled both the Bills and the Chiefs this year, but both games were at home and people who watched the games would agree they seemed to catch both teams on off days. .........

NFL Super Bowl Contenders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

January 18, 2022 @ 10:06 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Wildcard weekend has come and gone, and the favorites had their way this year going 5-1 straight up and 5-1 against the spread. Aside from the Cowboys who lost outright to the 49ers, every home team dominated their matchup. Now, we move onto the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, with some incredible matchups like the Rams and Buccaneers and the Chiefs and Bills. Let’s preview one team from each conference and discuss how likely they are to win the Super Bowl this year.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers You have to start with the reigning champs. Tom Brady and the Bucs didn’t skip a beat against the Eagles, with a dominant 31-15 win. Tampa Bay did so without several key starters including offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs who left the .........

Next Up: NFL Divisional Round January 22 & 23, 2022

January 17, 2022 @ 3:34 PM

49ers vs green bay packers

Next up in NFL Football are the Divisional Rounds.The Bengals will be playing the first game again thanks to their win against the Raiders. This time they'll go up against the AFC's top-ranked team, the Tennessee Titans, who are coming off their bye-week. That is the AFC game for Saturday, and the second game of the day will be over in the NFC, where the Green Bay Packers, fresh off their bye-week, will host the San Francisco 49ers, who upset the Cowboys in Dallas. The Packers are the overall favorites to win the Super Bowl at +350, followed closely by the Chiefs at +400. Despite being the second favorite to win it all, and despite playing at home this week, the Chiefs are only a 2.5 point favorite against the Buffalo Bills in .........

Arizona Cardinals @ Los Angeles Rams: NFL Wild Card

January 16, 2022 @ 3:50 PM

Monday January 17, 2022 pm ET on ABC

Arizona Cardinals football

For the third time this season the Cardinals and Rams will face off. Both teams are limping into the playoff as the Rams gave up a 17 point lead and lost to the 49ers. While the Cardinals lost to the Seahawks at home in Week 18. It has been a tale of two seasons for Arizona who looked unbeatable in the first half and have fallen back down to Earth in the stretch run. It follows a trend that head coach Kliff Kingsbury has seen in his first couple of seasons as the Arizona coach. Likewise Sean McVay has been accused of being ‘figured out’ by the end of the season. Quarterback Matthew Stafford just does not seem right after posting a dubious 17 interceptions, most of which came in the .........
