Its WIN or Go Home!
The 2018 NFL Playoffs Divisional Round kicks off today in a matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles in frozen Philadelphia and then the Titans visit Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in New England in the late game. Sunday has the surging Jacksonville Jaguars in Pittsburgh to face the Steelers and then the New Orleans Saints visit Minnesota to take on the Vikings.
The Eagles are coming off a bye and hosting this contest after a 13-win regular season that earned them the No. 1 seed in the NFC, while the sixth-seeded Falcons upset the Los Angeles Rams on the road in the Wild Card round. Not many were giving Atlanta a chance to make it past the opening weekend of the postseason, but now that they’ve advanced, they are surprisingly favorites to return to the NFC Championship for the second year in a row.
Will this be Revenge for the Steelers on Sunday? The Jaguars Run defense will be tested as will their running game. If your a gambler, the 7.5 points that the Jaguars are getting is Too TEMPTING not to take. The Vikings had a good run this year, and but this is a DOME game, and no one does domes like DREW!
