Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens
The Texans shocked the NFL world by beating the Cleveland Browns who were one of the hottest teams in the league and had arguably the best defense in the league. CJ Stroud is the real deal but we will see if he can do it again against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens who are big favorites in this game after losing just three games this year with Jackson.
Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers
Green Bay made easy work of Dallas in the Wildcard. The Cowboys hadn’t lost a game at home this year but got exposed in this one. The Packers look good but the 49ers are better all around compared to the Cowboys who they beat earlier in the season by 32. the 49ers are massive favorites but Jordan Love could have some magic left in him.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Detroit Lions
A third upset of the Wildcard was Tampa Bay beating the Eagles who were on a downhill slide. Now they will face Detroit who are around a touchdown favorite in this game. This should be a good one and it could be closer than the spread predicts.
Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills
The Chiefs made easy work of Miami in a cold game but the weather won’t be in their favor against Buffalo who is used to it and won their game in a similar situation over Pittsburgh. These two teams have been at the top of the AFC for the past handful of years now and Josh Allen and the Bills will look to get the best of them for the first time in the playoffs as small favorites.
