Regardless of matchup, Rams get chance at revenge in NFC title game

Adjust Comment Print

The NFL odds for this weekend's Divisional Round favor all four home teams.

Rushing and defense ended up carrying the day yesterday - but not for the teams that should have benefited from it. Kansas City's defense came up big against the Colts and the Chiefs scored 4 TDs - all on the ground. The defense has been the only weakness to be found on this Chiefs team and even so, they have still been able to produce a pass rush in big moments during the regular season.

Dak Prescott made it an eight-point game with just over two minutes left to play, but the Dallas defence gave up a pair of first downs and Jared Goff ran the clock down with a pair of kneels.

The Indianapolis Colts on the other hand may be the most unsafe team in the playoffs right now.

Late in the game when the Chiefs needed to keep the chains moving and run out the clock, Williams stepped up. Due to this seemingly unstoppable team makeup, the Saints are going to take the cake in this one. The main matchups I cannot wait to witness is Mack vs the Chiefs' DL and if the Colts' secondary can keep up with Mahomes. The entire offensive line couldn't have drawn up a sweeter scenario for this breakthrough win after they punctured the Cowboys' defence for a franchise playoff-record 273 yards rushing.

Worth focusing on: The tight end production for Indy's Eric Ebron, who had 15 touchdowns this season, and KC's Travis Kelce, second among TEs with 1,336 yards receiving. While revenge is typically overrated at the professional level, it won't be lost on them that both games are ones that they could have won.

Mahomes was drafted by the Chiefs in 2017 following his junior year at Texas Tech when he completed 65.7 percent of his passes for 5,052 yards and 41 touchdowns. Third cornerback Charvarius Ward and safety Jordan Lucas, who is starting in place of the injured Eric Berry, have played well over the past couple of games.

The NFL Playoff chalk finally awakened on Saturday, with the Chiefs and Rams each getting wins and covers.

RBG Won't Return to the Supreme Court Next Week
In 2013, she told the New York Times , "As long as I can do the job full steam, and that, at my age, is not predictable". If Donald Trump gets to replace Ginsburg, the Supreme Court would have six conservative judges and three liberals.

Cesc Fabregas leaves Chelsea to join Monaco
Batshuayi returned to Chelsea this month after an uninspiring spell at Valencia on loan, scoring just once in La Liga. He will also now be playing under his former team-mate and fellow former Arsenal fan-favourite Thierry Henry .

Italy's Salvini seeks to build new European order with Poles
Later in the day he was to meet Jarosław Kaczyński, the head of Poland's governing Law and Justice (PiS) party. Both populist governments have been embroiled in conflicts with Brussels over topics of national sovereignty.

The weakness of this Rams team is the defense. The Rams will take on the Cowboys and the Saints who own home field advantage will face the Super Bowl defending champion Eagles. Before answering that, let's move through this weekend's games.

Quarterback Philip Rivers enters Sunday's game with a 1-7 record against the Patriots, including 0-4 in Foxborough and 0-2 in the playoffs. I'm trying to win a Super Bowl. With playoff action upon us, here are a few standout player props. Just ask this year's Alabama team.

And while the Saints rolled the Eagles 48-7 earlier this season, that score raises some concerns about how many points Philadelphia can put up this time around, even with Nick Foles playing well at quarterback. "They opened up holes and we just stuck with the run".

Nick Foles is the Mr. January of the National Football League and all he has done the last two years is win.

"Was not expecting it to end today", Colts coach Frank Reich said.

If you're wondering what channel the Chargers vs. Patriots game is on, and what time the National Football League playoff games start today, we've got you covered.

If the Chiefs win next week, it will be their first trip to the Super Bowl since they won Super Bowl IV. This would be a hard-fought game, but I think the Saints pull out the win and secure their spot in the Super Bowl.
