Levack's Locks For The NFL Divisional round

13 January 2018

Minnesota has talent, terrific coaching, and they have the once in a lifetime opportunity of playing in the Super Bowl in their home stadium. No one really knows what to expect from replacement Nick Foles.

Preview : The Atlanta Falcons are playing good football right now. They didn't achieve the NFL's best record simply because of Wentz, and they still won the first two games after his injury. The team's good, but not great, defense held the Rams to just 13 points after LA averaged almost 30 points in the regular season. Don't sleep on Matt Ryan and his bunch.

Who does Arians believe will be this year's world champions? Four of those six second-round wins have come by at least 13 points. The games kick off Saturday with the No. 6 seed Atlanta Falcons at the No. 1 Philadelphia Eagles, and then the No. 5 Tennessee Titans versus the No. 1 New England Patriots.

The Wild Card round is over and it is time for the divisional round .

Upcoming flu restrictions at St. Peter's Health
Anyone who is sick with flu symptoms, including fever, body aches, cough and fatigue should stay home from work or school. The most common flu strain identified in Kentucky, and in the 36 deaths, is Influenza A, according to the department.

Those same Patriots are a huge favorite over the Titans this week. New England is the smart pick as long as the betting line stays below 14 points.

When the Buffalo Bills went up against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the performances of both teams made it very hard to tell that they were playing in January. Including the playoffs, Jacksonville is allowing a league-low 68.5 passer rating with a defensive front that sacks the quarterback on 9.1 percent of pass attempts after adjusting for down, distance and opponent, the second-best mark in the NFL this season. The Vikings had Keenum run play-action 29 percent of the time in 2017, just a fraction of a percentage point lower than Jared Goff for the highest rate in the National Football League, which helped boost his passer rating from 92.8 to 111.8 on those attempts.

This feels like it could be a special year for the Vikings, but the same could be easily said for the New Orleans Saints. Minnesota has the NFL's No.1 ranked defense and an offense that's 10th in points scored, while New Orleans has the No.2 offense with a defense that's 10th in points allowed. But that's discounting how good Keenum has been this year, as well as the fact that he won't need to put up incredible numbers Sunday. The Rams, by comparison, allowed 5.1 fewer points per game than expected. The Panthers committed to stopping the run and taking Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram out of the game, but Drew Brees still is a top five quarterback in the league, and he proved that he is capable of winning the game on his own.
