The Kansas City Chiefs await the Saturday playoff games. Today’s NFL playoff schedule has both the NFC and AFC side of the bracket playing. Over in the NFC, the Seattle Seahawks will visit the Atlanta Falcons, who are a 4-point favorite. You can live stream that game on the Fox Sports Go app. In the AFC, the New England Patriots are a whopping 15-point favorite over the Houston Texans. You can live stream that on CBSSports.com.
The Seahawks-Falcons game is the only good one here. The Patriots are a lock to beat the Texans, who made it here by beating the Derek Carr-less Oakland Raiders last week.
I have the Seahawks beating the Falcons. Going with the underdog. The Seahawks are so well-tested in the playoffs and I believe they will turn it on and get into the NFC Championship game. I have the Green Bay Packers beating the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday (before the Steelers-Chiefs game). A couple of road upset picks for me.
Then there’s the Patriots. They’ll be in the AFC Championship game. Again. The question is whether the Chiefs or the Steelers will be the one facing them. The Chiefs are the slight favorite over the Steelers at the moment.
