While Jags are no longer in play, there are still several teams that students can root for.
The Bolts go to Foxborough in the Divisional Round to see the New England Patriots, Indy heads to Arrowhead to face the Kansas City Chiefs and the defending champs head to the Big Easy for a date with the New Orleans Saints.
The Chiefs have not won a conference championship since the 1969 season when they beat the Oakland Raiders en route to the Super Bowl title over the Minnesota Vikings.
The Indianapolis Colts on the other hand may be the most risky team in the playoffs right now.
After winning the division, the Chicago Bears got taken down by the barely in Philadelphia Eagles by just one point!
Why You Should Watch: These teams met in Week 11 and to say it didn't go the Eagles' way would be putting it kindly. The second-year cornerback has become a hugely important player for the Colts the past couple of games and he had a monster game against the Chiefs on Saturday.
The Dallas Cowboys come into this game with a defense that has been one of the best all year.
Late in his 13th National Football League season, Andrew Whitworth finally got to savor his first playoff victory, albeit only for a minute or two.
Anderson joined the Rams last month as an emergency fill-in for Gurley, who injured his knee and missed the final two games. Still, Los Angeles hung tough by scoring 35 points of its own, taking it down to the wire until Michael Thomas' 72-yard touchdown with 3:52 to play. All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh both had outstanding games, but the Cowboys blamed themselves for their inability to establish a consistent rushing attack, particularly against the Rams' run defense, which had been spotty.
Gallup finished the game with six catches for 119 yards, which is notable all by itself. "It is definitely different from what we are used to, but it makes it a little more lively, makes you want to jump around and dance more and stay warm", Chiefs fan Teah Nguyen said.
The first game today (Sunday, January 13) is Los Angeles Chargers vs.
The weakness of this Rams team is the defense. The Chiefs, as the No. 1 seed, have home-field advantage. Before answering that, let's move through this weekend's games.
The Chargers have been an under the radar team all year and have snuck their way into the conversation as one of the best teams in the league. When these teams met earlier this season, Brees recorded 363 passing yards and 4 scores en route to a 48-7 victory. This being said it seems like we do this every year.
Player props closely mirror the game of fantasy football, allowing people to stay involved in a familiar way. This one looked like it would be tight at the start but the Rams pulled ahead in the second quarter and never looked back, winning 30-22. We've got lots of fantasy goodness in the weekend's 1st game.
But we're getting ahead of ourselves. So overall prediction for the Super Bowl - the Indianapolis Colts against the New Orleans Saints, a repeat of Super Bowl XLIV. However, facing rookie Lamar Jackson and five-time Super Bowl victor Tom Brady are two entirely different challenges, even if Brady is not playing at an MVP level right now. Drew Brees has had perhaps the best season of his Hall of Fame-caliber career. If the Saints win, New Orleans will host the game.
The Patriots, who lost in last year's Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles, will go into Sunday's game as slight favourites after having a bye week last week.
