NFL Divisional Schedule with Divisional Betting Lines
Saturday, January 13
We're going to see a first in NFL history on Saturday to kick off the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
Philadelphia is the first No. 1 seed in NFL history to be an underdog to a No. 6 seed at any point in the postseason. The Eagles are also the first No. 1 seed to be a dog in their first playoff game of the year.
This shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Philly has had declining Super Bowl odds ever since Carson Wentz went down with a season-ending ACL injury. Nick Foles hasn't been terrible, but the Eagles haven't scored an offensive touchdown in seven quarters.
That's a real concern against an Atlanta team that just thoroughly dominated in Los Angeles last week. If the Falcons are as good as they were against the Rams, Foles is going to have to have a huge game to beat them.
This is the sixth time in the Brady/Belichick era that the Patriots have been favored by double-digits in a playoff game. They've won four of the previous five, losing the Super Bowl in their perfectly imperfect 18-1 season.
The Titans are really up against it. They needed a miracle to beat the Chiefs last week, including getting the first quarterback-to-quarterback touchdown pass in the NFL in two decades when Marcus Mariota picked up a deflected pass and ran it into the end zone to start a comeback from down 21-3.
This upset wouldn't quite be the Jets against the Colts back in Super Bowl III, but it'd be pretty darn close.
Sunday, January 14
The Jaguars might have beaten the Steelers 30-9 in Week 5, but there's plenty of reason to think that Pittsburgh is in much better shape now than it was then.
For starters, Ben Roethlisberger isn't getting picked off five times, and if the Steelers get into the red zone three times in the first 2.5 quarters of the game, they probably aren't walking away with just nine points. The Steelers also know what's coming with the Jags' defense, and they aren't going to be thinking about a game at Kansas City or reflecting on a big win at Baltimore from the week prior.
Blake Bortles became the third quarterback in the Super Bowl era to win a playoff game with more rushing yards than passing yards, but that won't cut it in the Steel City on Sunday.
The Saints just barely hung on against the Panthers in Wild Card weekend, but now, they have to go on the road, a place where they've won just one playoff game in their history.
Minnesota is trying to create some history as well. It's hoping to move within 60 minutes of football of becoming the first team in NFL history to play in a Super Bowl it is hosting.
The Vikings had the league's No. 1 defense both in terms of total yards and scoring, but this matchup is going to be a tough one. Drew Brees showed last week that he can still grip it and rip it, throwing for 378 yards in the win over Carolina on a day that Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram were surprisingly quiet. If the Saints put it all together on Sunday, this could end up being a game for the history books.
