This year the NFL playoffs are sure to excite. Along with the usual super bowl contenders like the Patriots and Steelers we also have some new faces like the Titans, Bills, Jaguars and Saints. The thing that makes these playoffs great is because there are no clear favorites as we saw last week Tennessee’s comeback against the chiefs.

 

The Titans pulled off a great come back against the Chiefs, coming back from a 21-3 deficit shutting the Chiefs down in the 3rd and 4th quarters. The Jaguars defeated the Bills 10-3 in a defensive battle, and the Falcons defeated the Rams 26-13. The Saints and the Panthers battled in a high scoring shoot-out where the Saints defeated the Panthers 31-26.

 

Next week is sure to excite with some competitive matchups. The Falcons and the Eagles will be going head to head This Saturday. The Eagles who looked to be the team to beat until week 14 where their star quarterback, Carson Wentz tore his Acl. Wntz was a huge part of the Eagles offense for he was able to distribute the ball and get all the receivers going. The Falcons are looking to put down The number 1 seed in the AFC and finish what they started last year and win the Super Bowl.

 

The Patriots are looking to have the same outcome as last year and win the Superbowl. Tom Brady will be searching for his 6th ring. The Titans alone are trying to look for their first super bowl victory ever. But first they need to beat the Patriots which will be a hard challenge.

 

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be facing the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jacksonville will need to produce much more offense to compete with three-headed monster of Le’veon Bell, Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers who are the favorites will look to not let their last game against Jacksonville repeat when the Steelers lost 30-9.

 

Lastly the Saints Vikings game will be for sure one to watch. The Saints lost to the Vikings 29-19 in week 1. The Saints did lose the first two games of the year but turned it around winning 8 straight and have looked like a totally different team since. Minnesota will look for the same result as week one as they played fantastic on both sides of the ball with their quarterback Case Keenum lighting up the field lately.
