What a great opening day of the NFL playoffs last week. It was a super wildcard weekend and I was super with my picks.I went 4-0 on the Best Bet on the Pick Six Podcast, went 4-2 on the ATS picks on CBS Sports’ expert picks, and went 6-0 in the straights. was.

They don’t call me Playoff Peaty.

So let’s keep it up and rip off another good week with our picks.

Saturday 4:30 PM NBC | Steam: fubo tv

Featured games | | Kansas City Chiefs vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Chiefs defeated the Jaguars 27-17 in November, but it was another Jacksonville team and the game wasn’t really as close as the score. That Jacksonville team struggled offensively, but not this one. The Chiefs will be a real problem for the Jacksonville defense, which has struggled at times against passes. The Jags don’t rush passers too much, which is a big advantage for Patrick Mahomes. Jacksonville had no sacks in their first meeting. That’s always been a problem for Mahomes. With Trevor Lawrence playing well, we’re seeing the Jaguars scoring against a Chiefs defense they can beat. . Look for Mahomes to put up some big numbers the Jaguars can’t match, and the Chiefs will advance to his AFC title his game.

select: Chiefs 34, Jaguars 28

Featured games | | Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants

The Giants vikings The Eagles lead the NFL in sacks, with five players with 10 or more sacks. It’s pressure. The Giants have had occasional leaks on the line, which is a concern. But offensive coordinator Mike Kafka has things well planned for Jones. The Eagles didn’t look good in their offense in the regular season finale against the Giants that rested their players for the day, Jalen Hurts said he came back in that game after being sidelined twice but doesn’t look good was. The extra time helps with his health. The Eagles look to attack from the air here, but the Giants are booming on the defensive side. Without Lane Johnson, that could be a problem for the Eagles.

select: Eagles 30, Giants 28

Featured games | | Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals

If you love playing quarterback, this is your weekend game. Joe Burrow vs Josh Allen. We expected to see this match in Week 17, but it was canceled after Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest. It was right, but that’s also why this game is in Buffalo. Had the Bengals won that game and had an early lead, this contest would have been held in Cincinnati. Neither team looked good against their backup quarterbacks last week, and both struggled to move forward. I think both can play better here. The Bengals have an offensive line problem that could see three starters out, but the Bills didn’t rush their passers last week against Miami, and Burrow got the ball out quickly. This should be a shootout with both quarterbacks having big days. Ultimately, I think it’s Allen and the Bills who will win the fourth quarter.

select: Bills 34, Bengals 30

Featured games | | San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys

The 49ers beat the Cowboys in the playoffs last year, so this is a chance for the Cowboys to level things out. Dallas beat Tampa Bay on Monday night, so it’s another road game in a short week to challenge them, and the 49ers have actually added his 1 since playing last Saturday. You will have the day off. But the Cowboys seemed to find their offense against the Bucks, especially Dak Prescott.The 49ers have better defense than Tampa Bay, but the Dallas offense can move the ball. For the 49ers, it will fall on Brock Purdy against the pressure of Dallas. Purdy has been a resounding success since being named the starter in his five games remaining regular season.he defeated well seahawks Last week, but this would be the best defense he faced. The Dallas Pass Rush can be confusing, but I think it happens here. Prescott will make it better between the two quarterbacks in this one, as Dallas pulls off an upset.

select: Cowboys 27, 49ers 26
