WHO YA GOT? Pick the winners of the NFL Divisional round

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady

The NFL is going through some insane news this week but that is all for later. "I think the further you go and the more you get to do it, it's just like anything else the more acclimated you get to it".

- The Steelers are 12-2 all time at home in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, the best record in the league (min. five games). The Titans will ride their momentum from Kansas City to a strong first half in New England, and this game will be closer than the spread indicates, but Brady and the Patriots will be too much to handle as the game progresses. I also had the Los Angeles Rams beating out the Atlanta Falcons (28-24) yet it seems that the Rams have yet to take that next step.

Though the Jacksonville Jaguars have one of the league's leading defenses, much of the damage they've done has come in pass defense. It was pretty predictable of the Saints to win over the Carolina Panthers but now the NFC playoffs should be interesting from here on. Jacksonville could pull off the upset in Pittsburgh if they can run the ball and cover Pittsburgh's fast receivers. The last two weeks of the regular season, they scored a combined 10 points at home against the Raiders and Cowboys, neither of which made the playoffs. However, that is still debatable. When it comes time for the playoffs, Bill Belichick is quite possibly the most unsafe man in the NFL. The Falcons tightened up on defense by tackling well and kept players like running back Todd Gurley from getting yards on screens or sneaking out of the backfield. And if you're a lover of the original sense of football, field position is monstrous.

If you're a believer in a playoff experience at quarterback, then these divisional playoff games look like locks. I don't see anyway that the Patriots don't win this game. This will be a game that Le'Veon Bell will be a key factor in.

As of this writing, I have the Steelers taking this game, 27-17. The most obvious one is home-field advantage, which is particularly important to Minnesota this season. "The good thing is there is a really detailed contingency plan in place that hasn't had to be rolled out before, but is in place".

Two potentially harmful parasites-Sarcocystis cruzi and Toxoplasma gondii-were also detected in 11% and 6% of the products. The team concluded that warnings and handling instructions should be included on product labels and/or packages.

Proving Brees' point, the two teams have gone through a number of roster changes since their Week 1 clash. Time of possession is always something that is critical in games like these.

The Falcons were not great on offense by any means. The Saints are just all around great on both sides of the football. Despite Case Keenum's success this year, I still don't know if I trust him to get it done on the big stage. Drew Brees wins out every single time. He should have had the starting job in Tennessee a long time ago.

Murray has also handled four of the Vikings' five carries inside the 5-yard line over the past four games, with all four of Murray's carries coming from the 1- or 2-yard line.

Find a way to slow down Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram? This is a game that will be a must watch.

David: The Eagles were my Super Bowl favorite until star quarterback Carson Wentz went down with a season-ending injury. Jacksonville is a team that can play with anyone. Yes, even after accounting for Nick Foles. Atlanta will be more tested against Philadelphia this week. Minnesota has talent, terrific coaching, and they have the once in a lifetime opportunity of playing in the Super Bowl in their home stadium. They may well raise their game after this. But they have shown they can do it. I think they win this one outright as I believe Bortles bounces back and Pittsburgh gets punked at home once again.
