Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians picks Falcons-Steelers Super Bowl

NFL Teams That Have Yet to Win a Super Bowl NFL Teams That Have Yet to Win a Super Bowl

After a Wild Card Weekend full of shocks, the group are all locked together on four points, with John Part and Shaun Gayle knocked out after tallying only two points - the Saints, and Jaguars, respectively, their only successful picks. This will bring the Falcons and the Vikings in the final match to determine who among them will play in this year's Super Bowl. They started 4-4, barely squeaked into the postseason, and then upset the Los Angeles Rams on the road in the wild-card round to move on.

Their reward is a trip to Philadelphia.

Apparently, the Falcons are starting to find believers because they are favored on the road at Philadelphia on Saturday in the NFC divisional round, although this likely due largely to Carson Wentz's absence. The defense remained strong, however, as they have all season, and held the Bills to just 133 passing yards. That sort of production will not get the job done this weekend!

This is a game where the Titans will run the ball and control the clock. Tennessee (10-7), who have not won in New England since 1993, advanced to Saturday's game with a 22-21 wildcard victory over the AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Last week I wrote that if the Titans were to have any chance of beating Kansas City, running back Derrick Henry had to have a big game, and he did! They rank second in the league with just 16.8 defensive points allowed per game, but it will be hard to repeat last week's performance at Heinz Field this Sunday. Quarterback Tom Brady finished the regular-season as the third-most valuable quarterback per ESPN's Total Quarterback Rating and was instrumental in the team scoring a league-leading 2.6 points per drive, almost a point per drive more than the league average (1.8), and the 12th best scoring efficiency since 2002, the year the league expanded to 32 teams. The adage "idle hands make light work" springs to mind. Additionally, they are 5-1 at home in the postseason since the 2008 season, the second-best record in the National Football League in that time (min. five games).

"I was disappointed about the way the first game went and the way it turned out".

The Jaguars blew out the Steelers, 30-9, in Week Five when Ben Roethlisberger was picked off five times.

The talk in Pittsburgh has been about avenging that defeat and, with a first-round bye, the Steelers were able to put their feet up and rest last weekend.

For the first time ever, a number six seed is a favorite to beat the top overall seed in any conference.

The Steelers reportedly have Antonio Brown back.THIS IS HUGE! And, since Roethlisberger entered the National Football League, he has a dismal 1-4 record against Jacksonville. The Saints are coming off a 31-26 win over the Panthers at home, in which quarterback Drew Brees threw for a phenomenal 376 yards and notched two touchdowns. I keep hearing that the Eagles will shutdown the run and make them one dimensional. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles, New Orleans Saints and Pittsburgh Steelers all have a top-10 defense per Football Outsiders' Defense-adjusted Value Over Average, which measures a team's efficiency by comparing success on every play to a league average based on situation and opponent.
