NFL Divisional Gameday: Rounding The Final Four
[lead align=”default”]On NFL Divisional Gameday Sunday, the field is at six, and about to winnow to its final four.[/lead]
Both the NFC and AFC games figure to be good ones, but we said that about at least one of last week’s Sunday games and they stunk to hell. Maybe this week will be better, but for the weather in Kansas City.
NFL Divisional Gameday: About Last Night
Atlanta and New England both advanced in their Divisional playoff games. The Falcons rolled over the Seahawks, 36-20, while the Pats slowly pulled away from the Texans for a 34-16 victory.
While it remains to be seen where the NFC Championship will be played, the AFC title game will be in Foxboro. With a win next week, New England would appear in its seventh Super Bowl under Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Atlanta is just trying to get to their second overall, and they haven’t been in almost 20 years.
NFL Divisional Gameday: Green Bay at Dallas
Any way you slice it, this looks like a pretty good game. Two elite franchises approaching this postseason very differently. Dallas are the new kids on the block with a lot of forward momentum. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, two offensive rookies, helped power Dallas to the one seed in the NFC.
On the other side of the field, the Green Bay Packers are the veterans. Aaron Rodgers has a Super Bowl ring and lots of playoff experience in general. He is without Jordy Nelson, but that didn’t seem to bother him as his team shredded a very good Giants defense last week.
This one has the potential to be a high-scoring game, and if Vegas is right, a close one.
NFL Divisional Gameday: Pittsburgh at Kansas City
This game was originally coming first on Sunday, but poor weather conditions made it a rare Sunday night Divisional game. It takes a lot to move or cancel an NFL game, but an ice storm will do it.
Kansas City and Pittsburgh are nearly even in Vegas, but on the field, Pittsburgh already has a win against the Chiefs. Yet, that was on October 3 in Pittsburgh, but this is January 15 in Kansas City. Expect some fireworks.
