There are four NFL Playoff games ready to take place this weekend, and there should be plenty of drama and excitement in each matchup. There was only one real upset in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs, and that means that the best teams are still left standing.
Weather is going to play a factor in each game this weekend as the temperatures continue to drop. The four winners will each move just one win away from reaching the ultimate destination, the Super Bowl.

Top Seeds On Saturday
The top seeds in each conference are set to take the field for the first time this postseason as each team had a bye. The Tennessee Titans are 3.5-point favorites over the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC, and the Green Bay Packers are six-point favorites over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC.
The Cincinnati Bengals are heading to Tennessee with a ton of momentum as Joe Burrow, and that passing attack are hard to stop. The Titans will be getting Derrick Henry back, and they will be looking to run the ball well.
It’s been a great season for the Bengals, but they are running into an experienced team. Tennessee is going to control this game and win it by a touchdown.
Green Bay has the best player in the NFL in Aaron Rodgers, and that passing attack will create some problems for the 49ers. San Francisco has been on a tear of late, but it’s just hard seeing them score enough points to win the game.
The Packers have struggled to win important playoff games at home, but they take care of business and pick up a double-digit victory.
Sunday Should Be Exciting
Don’t expect to see too much drama on Saturday, but that should all change on Sunday. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are three-point favorites over the Los Angeles Rams at home, and the Kansas City Chiefs are slim two-point favorites over the Buffalo Bills.
Tampa Bay is the defending Super Bowl champions, but they are facing a Los Angeles team that is strong on offense. Tom Brady continues to put up massive numbers for the Buccaneers, but the Rams defense can give him problems.
If you are looking for an upset pick this weekend, betting on the Rams is the way to go. Los Angeles will go into Tampa Bay and pick up a huge win to eliminate the Buccaneers.
Kansas City and Buffalo should be the best game of the entire weekend, and there will be no shortage of offense in this game. The Chiefs averaged over 28 points per game this season, and the Bills just scored 47 points in a win over the Patriots in the NFL Wild Card Game.
If any team in the AFC is going to beat the Chiefs, it is the Bills, but it’s not going to happen on Sunday. Kansas City gets just enough offense to come away with a three-point win and cover the spread.
