With what I would describe to be a very odd wild card weekend ending and the divisional round of the NFL playoffs coming up I figured it was the perfect time to make my first ever blog post and make my picks for the upcoming Weekend.
I’ll start with maybe the easiest pick in football playoff history, with the Patriots dominating the Titans. As much as I hate the Patriots, it is impossible not to pick them as its basically a bye week for Belichick and Brady. The Titans didn’t even deserve to be in the playoffs in the first place, let alone on the same field as the Patriots. I’m actually scared to watch this game as i expect Tom Brady to throw 4 TD’s in at least the first half. If I was Marcus Mariota I wouldn’t even show up honestly, why not go to your homeland of Hawaii instead and start your off-season early; Patriots 42 Titans 3
To round out the AFC I’m going with an upset in the Jaguars over the Steelers. The Steelers may have the best running back and wide receiver in the league however they’re lead by a old scumbag quarterback who got absolutely abused by “Sacksonville” week 5 and will probably get beat down to retirement this weekend. Sorry Antonio Brown and Lev Bell but you won’t make the Super Bowl yet again, and congrats to Blake Bortles who will be undefeated in his playoff career; Jaguars 24 Steelers 10
With the AFC finished, my attention shifts to the NFC where i’ll begin with the Saints at Vikings. Both teams have good defenses so the real determining factor here is the offense and anyone that isn’t an idiot or from Minnesota should understand that the Saints’ offense is just simply better than the Vikings offense. Drew Brees is clearly better than Case Keenum and either of the Saints running backs are better than Jerik McKinnon. I’d even take the Saints receiving core over the Vikings purely cause Drew Brees is throwing them the ball; Saints 21 Vikings 13
My final game to pick is the Eagles vs Falcons, where the #1 seed is an underdog for the first time in NFL history. This is very insulting to me as i have been an Eagles fan my entire life but I do understand where Vegas is coming from. Ever since Carson Wentz went down my birds just haven’t been the same on either side of the ball. However with that all said I’m still taking the Eagles in this one purely because I bleed green and believe in Big Dick Nick; Eagles 27 Falcons 21
Those are my divisional picks, if you don’t agree with them you’re most likely wrong and stupid. I’ll be posting my Superbowl Picks next week so stay tuned.
