NFL Divisional Round Predictions

The NFL Divisional playoff games are all set and here are the matchups:

Saturday, Jan. 11
No. 6 Vikings at No. 1 49ers, 4:35 p.m. ET (NBC)
No. 6 Titans at No. 1 Ravens, 8:15 p.m. ET (CBS)

Sunday, Jan. 12
No. 4 Texans at No. 2 Chiefs, 3:05 p.m. ET (CBS)
No. 5 Seahawks at No. 2 Packers, 6:40 p.m. ET (Fox)

Three wild card teams grabbed spots including the Titans with a massive win over Tom Brady and the New England dynasty. We expect some fantastic action and here are our predictions:

Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers certainly have the edge with home field advantage and an outstanding regular season behind them. But Kirk Cousins has proven he is playoff worthy after a massive win over the Saints. We think the Vikings will give the 49ers a run for their money but at the end of the day, the Niners will walk away with the win. 49ers 30 – Vikings 16

Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens appear to be the best team in the league and the odds makers agree giving the Titans 8.5-9.5 on the spread. We don’t think the Titans can hang on either side of the ball and Lamar Jackson will take the Ravens to the Conference Championship – and they might even cover the over-under by themselves! Ravens 44 Titans -24

Houston Texans at Kansas City Chiefs: It’s hard to envision a scenario where the Texans can steal a win in Kansas City but that’s why we play the game. The Texans high powered offense has been anemic in the second half of the season and they barely squeaked out a win over the Bills. We expect Patrick Mahomes to have a banner day in KC. Chiefs 31 – Texans 9

Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers: Play this game on a neutral site and it’s Seahawks all the way, but that’s not how it works! Cold temperatures are expected in Green Bay for this NFC matchup and that is going to give the Packers a slight advantage. Despite the predictions, we think Seattle is on a crash course with San Fran and they will edge out the Packers in a low scoring affair. Seahawks 19 – Packers 17
