The games kick off today at 4:35 p.m. when the Kansas City Chiefs take on the New England Patriots in Foxboro. The Falcons don't really have an extensive history against either of these teams. Against the Chiefs, Kansas City leads the all-time series with the Falcons with five wins compared to Atlanta's three wins. The Falcons are 6-7 all time against the Patriots. With Rob Gronkowski injured, facing the Chiefs defense is a tougher task for the Patriots, but I still think the Pats pull off the victory. Still, rooting for the team I believe will win also means rooting for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. No, thanks. Go Chiefs.

Atlanta's history against the Green Bay Packers and the Arizona Cardinals is surprisingly similar. The Falcons trail the Cardinals all time 13-16, and against the Packers, the Falcons have won 13 games against Green Bay's 17 wins in franchise history. The Packers handed the Falcons a humiliating playoff loss following the 2010 season, and most of us aren't over it. The Cardinals are also a very complete team and beat the Packers 38-8 the last time these teams faced each other. Go Cardinals. Seahawks vs. Panthers
Seahawks vs. Panthers

The Falcons don't have an extensive history against the Seattle Seahawks. These teams have faced each other 15 times in franchise history, and the Falcons trail the all-time series 6-9. The Panthers, however, are a division rival, and the Falcons lead that series 25-17. Carolina handed Atlanta their most embarrassing loss of the season, a 38-0 shutout in Bank of America Stadium in Week 14. The Falcons reciprocated by ruining the Panthers undefeated season with a 20-13 win in Week 16. You shouldn't root for division rivals in the playoffs. Go Seahawks.
Where: Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver
When: Sunday, January 17, 1:40 p.m. PT
Announcers: Jim Nantz, Phil Simms
Radio: Steelers Radio Network | Broncos Radio Network
Online Streaming: CBS Sports
Odds: The line opened at Broncos -2.5, and Steelers injury news has led to it moving to 6.5-points at some sportsbooks. A lot of sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark have not provided a line due to the questions about Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have absolutely owned the Falcons over these teams' history. The all-time series record between these teams is 2-13-1. That's just terrible for the Falcons. Against the Broncos, the Falcons are 5-9 all time. Let's root against the team that has absolutely owned the Falcons since 1966.
Which teams are you rooting for today?
