Predictions for Every NFL Divisional Playoff Game

Predictions for Every NFL Divisional Playoff Game Predictions for Every NFL Divisional Playoff Game

Quarterback Tom Brady leads the New England Patriots into Saturday's AFC divisional-round playoff game against the Tennessee Titans, and receiver Danny Amendola wouldn't want it any other way.

Why? Because they are better.

All season, Sky Sports News' NFL reporter Richard Graves has given his weekly game predictions, going head-to-head against star names from the sporting arena to see who knows their gridiron more.

New Orleans is one of the most balanced teams in the NFL.

Your Super Bowl matchup according to this prediction is the Patriots and the Vikings. But I just have a good feeling about this Saints team. Lewis is a poor man's Le'Veon Bell, which means - to a slightly lesser extent - he's a game-changer. That after knocking them off during the regular season at Heinz Field as well.

Lewis, who is also a decent threat through the air (3 TDs), has some help with Rex Burkhead and James White, too. It's been the big, powerful teams that have given the Falcons trouble this year.

PATRIOTS -13 over Titans The follow up chatter to last week's Seth Wickersham's ESPN.com piece on how Bill Belichick and Tom Brady essentially hate each other has kind of died down. He is coming off a season, like Brady, when he was named the No. 1 player at his position. Tennessee will ultimately lose the game but not by two touchdowns. His performance against the Steelers on that final drive was the stuff of Hall of Famers - three catches in a row for 69 yards.

The third quarter could be huge for the Titans - they've outscored opponents 98-49 in the third quarters of games in 2017 (including the playoffs). Watch for him to destroy some of those power plays with penetration.

Trump himself will determine what information to make public, a person familiar with the process of presidential exams said. Because the health information is considered private under federal law, the President himself must sign off on its release.

Trump was 70 when he took office on January 20, 2017, making him the oldest person ever elected to the nation's highest office. People around Mr Trump were concerned about his deteriorating attention span and verbal patterns, he also said.

Dark Souls: Remastered is coming to several new platforms
Dark Souls: Remastered includes both the original content of the original game and the DLC Artorias of the Abyss . Bandai Namco and developer From Software are also increasing the multiplayer count to a maximum of six players.

Championships are usually won by the best team.

But the Divisional Round of the playoffs is when more immediate issues come into focus, because now there are eight teams two wins away from the Super Bowl.

While the average fans knows Malcolm Butler, Stephon Gilmore and Devin McCourty, and quite possibly Patrick Chung, the rest of the defense is mystery. It will be a closer game then most expect, especially if Marcus Mariota manages to keep his composure in the pocket. They have to make a handful of big plays. In this league, most teams can only advance as far as their quarterback can take them.

Patriots 34, Titans 20: The Titans don't have the defense to beat the Patriots in January. Two turnovers, a pair of sacks, six tackles for loss and seven quarterback hurries is plenty of disruption to win a messy game. The Wentz-less Birds will have a tough task this Saturday, as the Falcons are one of the hottest teams around the league.

Charles: I have absolutely ZERO faith in Blake Bortles, particularly after last week. But Eagles' QB situation is a disaster-in-waiting.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are the AFC's No. 2 seed and +500 on the Super Bowl futures.

Graves' 11-5-1 mark on the season certainly would have been good enough to earn a playoff spot - so he is back, as are some of his fiercest competitors from the year, to take on the Super Bowl Challenge. There's a genuine belief that they have a defense capable of taking them all the way to the Super Bowl in Minnesota, and although a postseason trip to Pittsburgh is daunting, they go having already won there this season - a thumping 30-9 victory back in Week Five, where Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger threw five interceptions! I believe the Vikings win at home, but they will not blow out the Saints.
