NFL Playoffs Divisional Preview & Picks


Chris and Steve of the Ball Hawks Podcast, part of the Dean Blundell Network, are back for a very special playoff episode! Tune in LIVE as we reveal our picks for this round on air. Can Chris make up for his Wild Card debacle?


The NFL Wild Card round is in the books and we are off to the Divisional round. The Wild Card wasn't that "Super" regardless of how the league tried to market it. This week should make up for what was a lackluster first round with 4 enticing matchups.


Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers play host to Matthew Stafford and the LA Rams. Tampa's offense has multiple injuries, including phenomenal OL, Tristan Wirfs. Can Brady lead the Bucs to back-to-back NFC Championship games? Or will Aaron Donald and Von Miller wreak havoc in that Buccaneers backfield?


The Green Bay Packers enjoyed the week off during the first round. However this week, Aaron Rodgers and co. will be playing host to the San Francisco 49ers. Rodgers is 0-3 vs his hometown Niners in the playoffs. The last time they met 2 years ago San Francisco won in the NFC Championship game. Will he have David Bakhtiari protecting his blindside this game? Or will Deebo Samuel carry his team to another playoff victory?


On the AFC side, the #1 seed, Tennessee Titans will be welcoming back the King for their first-round matchup vs the Cincinnati Bengals. All signs are pointing to Derrick Henry making his return in the double-blues for the first time since week 8. Henry, combined with a healthy Julio Jones & AJ Brown will make for a potent Titans offense. BUT, if there's one team that is built for a shoot-out it's those New Kids On The Block, Cincinnati Bengals! Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase are proving to be a deadly combo already in their 1st NFL season together. Can the kids keep it rolling and pick up a win on the road? Or will King Henry beat them into submission and send them to the gallows?


The marquee matchup of the NFL Divisional Round HAS the Buffalo Bills vs the Kansas City Chiefs. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense has woken from the dead and seems to be firing on all cylinders right now. Josh Allen and his Bills offense are also firing on all cylinders right now after laying a beating on the Patriots. Can Mahomes lead his Chiefs to their third straight AFC Championship game? Or will Josh Allen lift his team up and pick up a monumental win on the road?
