Sal & Adrian’s NFL Divisional Round Playoff Picks
Time for the best time of the season, the NFL Divisional Playoffs. Will the Cowboys pull through, or will the Rams get it done at home?
We breakdown all playoff games for you here and you can catch all four games live on air on 600 ESPN El Paso.
(6) Indianapolis Colts at (1) Kansas City Chiefs
Adrian: Patrick Mahomes will roast the Colts on Saturday, but it won’t be easy. I’ll take the better offense in this one. Kansas City 31 - Indianapolis 21
Sal: Andrew rolls hard with his last name and delivers a magical drive in the final minutes of the game. It won’t be for a touchdown or field goal though, it’s to ice the Colts two-point lead. Indianapolis 37 - Kansas City 35
(4) Dallas Cowboys at (2) Los Angeles Rams
Adrian: Home is where the heart is, even if this won’t really be a home game for the Rams. Todd Gurley runs all over Dallas and Aaron Donald buries the Cowboys Super Bowl run. Rams 23 - Cowboys 13
Sal: The Dallas Cowboys have been impressive at home and that will continue in California as the fans turn this road trip into Arlington West. Zeke shows out for a 100+ yard night in both receiving and running individually (250+ total). Cowboys 27 - Rams 24
(5) Los Angeles Chargers at (2) New England Patriots
Adrian: Phillip Rivers hasn't ever beaten Tom Brady and with his most talented team yet, the Chargers get it done on the road. Is this the end of New England's dynasty? Chargers 31 - Patriots 28
Sal: Philip Rivers has more picks than touchdowns vs Brady (7 to 10) and those numbers will turn into 9 to 13. We can either watch this game or watch a replay every single Rivers vs Brady matchups. Patriots 34 - Chargers 17
(6) Philadelphia Eagles at (1) New Orleans Saints
Adrian: Nothing seems to be able to stop Nick Foles in January playoff games, except a Saints team that has their eyes set on something far more than just a playoff victory. Saints roll on and look toward Atlanta. Saints 42 - Eagles 30
Sal: Nick Foles has been that shot of magic that the Eagles keep on downing game after game ever since he’s taken over at Quarterback. It’s still not enough because football magic isn’t nearly as holy as that of a Saint named Drew Brees. Saints 38 - Eagles 24
