As I think the majority of teams will be paying up for two of the top-RB's, I think there is a great opportunity in spending up on both T.Y. Hilton & Tyreek Hill. The Chiefs have allowed the most first downs give up in National Football League history which will allow Luck to keep moving the ball. The Cowboys have the ball back briefly but are picked off by the Rams' defense.
Worth focusing on: The tight end production for Indy's Eric Ebron, who had 15 touchdowns this season, and KC's Travis Kelce, second among TEs with 1,336 yards receiving.
This is Prescott's second shot at a divisional win after Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers stole the first with some last-second magic.
Mahomes threw for 278 yards while running for a touchdown, and running back Damien Williams ran through snow and muck for 129 yards and another score.
Rams over the Cowboys: Honestly this could go either way.
"We won this game, and we've got two more to go". While the game will be played in Los Angeles, don't expect the Rams to hold crowd advantage.
The weakness of this Rams team is the defense. The Saints are scoring over 34 points per game at home.
This may be the most intriguing game of the weekend. The Chargers averaged 26.8 points per game, tied for sixth in the league, while the Patriots were fourth with 27.3 points per contest. However, in an awesome matchup, a $100 bet on Brees eclipsing 290.5 passing yards nets $92.59. With playoff action upon us, here are a few standout player props. Finishing with an 11-5 record in the regular season, the Patriots lost to multiple teams that finished the year with losing records. This being said it seems like we do this every year.
The Colts (11-7) went three-and-out on their first four possessions, were outgained 185-12 in the first quarter, and Luck didn't complete a pass until he found T.Y Hilton early in the second. Los Angeles is one win away from another Super Bowl trip after McVay largely stuck to old-time football basics with his unlikely running back tandem and an offensive line determined to assert its superiority. "We're talking about the trophy and if you saw all that money, you'd get excited, too".

"Getting as healthy as possible for us where we're about as healthy as you could ask to be going into the divisional round".
Now it's up to the New Orleans Saints to take care of business. Right now, he has as many as Romo and three-time Super Bowl victor Troy Aikman.
Against the Colts, the Chiefs had to survive some anxious moments having more to do with their playoff history - they wasted a 28-point, third-quarter lead against the Colts five years ago and an 18-point, third-quarter lead against the Titans last season - than the way they were playing.
The Dallas Cowboys can thank their lucky stars - or the Philadelphia Eagles for beating the Chicago Bears - that they don't have to travel to New Orleans to take on Drew Brees and the Saints in the Divisional Round. Both defenses are rather ordinary overall, but New Orleans was #2 against the rush during the regular season - likely because their offense put teams in deep holes and forced them to pass.
