New, comments

There’s no Falcons today, but there are two very compelling NFL playoff games.

Today’s slate of games is a fun one. In the AFC, you have a terrific defense against a great offense, and in the NFC, you have two very watchable offenses.

On the NFC side, the Packers and the Cowboys clash for a berth in the Conference Championship. The Packers have flaws and are without Jordy Nelson, but they have a red-hot Aaron Rodgers and a good enough defense. The Cowboys, meanwhile, have stellar rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, an underrated defense, and home field advantage. I’ve got Green Bay because Rodgers is a demi-god, but it won’t be an easy win for the Packers.

On the AFC side, it’s the always difficult Steelers, who have two of the most dynamic skill position players in the entire NFL, versus a terrific defense in the Chiefs. The Steelers are always incredibly dangerous, but the Chiefs are a balanced, phenomenal football team in their own right, and I’ve got them in this one.

How about you?
