NFL Playoffs Jan. 16 – Chiefs at Patriots/ Packers at Cardinals- Quick Predictions
Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots
This match-up features the AFC’s hottest team against the dynasty of the New England Patriots.
Tom Brady has four super bowl rings and 21 career playoff wins, Alex Smith has two playoff wins. The Patriots seem to be getting healthier but there are still real issues on the offensive line.
The Patriots, finished the regular season 2-4 after a 10-0 start. The Chiefs have now won 11 straight games after an 1-5 start.
I maybe a fool for beating against Brady and Bill Belichick, but I believe the Chiefs will be able to stop the Patriots running game and get pressure on Tom Brady. I’m calling the upset. Even if Pats prevail straight up, I like Chiefs +6.
Kansas City 28 Patriots 24
**Bet Sports Strong Rating C **** It’s the NFL Playoffs, anything goes
Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals
Green Bay will be looking for revenge from a 38-8 throttling that took place week 16 in Arizona.
The Packers were very impressive in last weeks 35-18 playoff win at Washington. The Cardinals have now had two weeks to think about a 36-6 home loss to Seattle which cost them the number one seed in the NFC. Ironically, that defeat to Seattle has helped the Cardinals avoid Seattle and instead re-match the Packers.
Not going to overthink this. Cardinals are my Vegas bet to win the Super Bowl since week 6. Cardinals -7
Arizona 34 Green Bay 24
***Bet Sports Strong Rating A****
