Buffalo Bills @ Kansas City Chiefs
Mahomes vs Allen.
It doesn't get much better than that folks. This marks a battle between two of the league's top young gun prodigies. This game should be an offensive shootout. In fact, this marks the easiest defense that the Bills will have faced in the playoffs.
If fantasy football was still a thing in the playoffs, Bills vs Chiefs would be the crown jewel matchup of offensive weapons. Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, L'eVeon Bell, Steffon Diggs, John Brown, Cole Beasley, Devin Singletary will be ready and hungry.
Kansas City features the league's #1 offense in total yards with an average of 425.3 yards per game. They were also the league's sixth ranked scoring offense with 473 points.
The Bills on the other hand were even more potent as far as scoring goes. They were 2nd with 501 points. Likewise they were 2nd in total yards behind the Chiefs.
This game has the makings of an all-time great for playoff offense. Both of these defenses are middle of the pack so expect points to come in bunches.
The key to this game will probably come down to turnovers. The team that has the least amount will probably win. It also seems likely that the last team to possess the ball will come out on top. Although the Chiefs come in as the slight favorite, I definitely smell an upset here.
PREDICTION: Chiefs-37 Bills-41
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers
The battle of the GOATs takes place on the frozen tundra of Lambeau.
If your looking for great quarterback play, then look no further than Brady vs Rodgers. These are the type of games that football fans live for. Just thinking about it brings back memories of Marino vs Montana or Elway vs Young.
While the AFC matchup has the makings of an offensive fireworks show, this one could potentially be much different. Both of these teams are surrounded by very good defenses as well.
Tampa Bay comes into the game with the 11th ranked offense and 9th ranked defense. Green Bay counters with the 5th best offense and 8th best defense. Both teams can somewhat pound the ball; however Green Bay holds the slight edge in rushing.
Expect Aaron Rodgers to target Pro Bowl WR Davante Adams early and often. Adams led the league with 115 receptions for 1,374 yards and 18td's; all the while missing 2-1/2 games.
Meanwhile, the Buccaneers share a three headed WR triumvirate of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown. Brady will most definitely spread the ball around and try to create mismatches.
This could be a battle of immovable objects. Very much like the AFC matchup, I do believe that this game will come down to turnovers. Green Bay has the slight edge since they are playing at home.
Although my head says that you should never ever bet against Tom Brady in the playoffs, my instincts tell me that Aaron Rodgers is just too hungry to lose.
PREDICTION: Buccaneers-28 Packers-31
