NFL GM on playoffs: Eagles will lose, Patriots will roll, more

NFL Teams That Have Yet to Win a Super Bowl

With Carson Wentz it would be a different story.

As a reminder, each week I'll add an *asterisk next to my picks against the spread that I'm extremely confident in (a.k.a. games I'm actually willing to put money on). Philadelphia is being given little chance with Nick Foles at quarterback, and the players know that.

The Atlanta Falcons are a team that have been tested and somehow pulled through. In the past three weeks, Atlanta's defense hasallowed third-down conversions less than 31 percent of the time, a touchdownin the red-zone only 25 percent of the time andfirst downs on less than 27 percent of plays. Buffalo Bills losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars (20-10), I almost lost if the Bills got within the red zone but the Jags pulled through somehow.

Tennessee's comeback victory last week was thrilling, but make no mistake, the Titans will be outmatched in New England. Many will call this pick insane or a "hot take", but there's real data to back up the claim that the Jaguars are just as good - if not better - than the Steelers. If they can make you one-dimensional, then their defense will get after the passer, and it becomes very hard to avoid their rush. You've got to make the tackles, you've got to make the throws, the catches, the blocks, the runs, whatever it takes. But just like I noted above in the Steelers-Jaguars matchup, I'll take the team led by a Hall of Fame quarterback with 12 playoff games (and a Super Bowl win) under his belt over the quarterback playing in his first playoff game. Fournette dominated in the last meeting with 28 carries for 181 yards and two touchdowns. However, these types of stories only seem to fuel the team's fire, like when the Patriots won the Super Bowl after the Deflategate saga. This game will be close and low-scoring, but don't be surprised when the Jaguars come out on top 15-13. In that game, Pittsburgh threw it 55 times, vs. 20 rushes.

Suspect linked to death of Rihanna's cousin arrested and charged with murder
Several of Rihanna's fans and friends sent their condolences after the post, offering prayers and support in her time of grief. Alleyne's Instagram account featured images of the singer, including one in which he wished her a happy birthday in February.

In-depth analysis aside, there's really only one way to play this game. The Jaguars secondary is risky and will likely have their hands full just trying to cover both Antonio Browns and Juju Smith-Schuster. Minnesota was victorious in Week 1, but a lot has changed since then. I do think he can do enough to win (or at least not lose) this game. But I just have a good feeling about this Saints team. By almost every metric, the Los Angeles Rams are better than the Atlanta Falcons.

Find a way to slow down Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram? The Vikings have been stingy against the run (83.6 rushing ypg allowed), and have been no slouch against the pass either thanks to Pro Bowl cornerback Xaiver Rhodes and safety Harrison Smith.

The best weekend of the National Football League is here, the Divisional Round of the playoffs. "At the end of the day, it's not about old guys are going to win or young guys are going to win, the home team, the road team".
