Six groups took an enormous step ahead within the NFL 2020 playoffs final weekend whereas two different groups ready within the wings to see who they might be enjoying. Taking that one huge step ahead had been the Buffalo Payments, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Los Angeles Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the New Orleans Saints. Now all of the remaining groups should steps to go to changing into Tremendous Bowl champions.

Getting a one week relaxation with the highest seed in every convention had been the Inexperienced Bay Packers and Kansas Metropolis Chiefs. The Ravens had been anticipating a battle with the Tennessee Titans they usually acquired one however they had been clearly the higher workforce. The Browns pulled off the most important upset at the least on paper. On the sector, the Steelers continued their late-season stoop shedding 5 of their remaining six and exiting the playoffs whipped. Seattle misplaced at dwelling paving the best way for the Rams to advance. Then there was Drew Brees maybe giving it his remaining hurrah with a attainable retirement looming forward

Now we’re down to what’s an equal of the NCAA’s “March Insanity” in different phrases the ELITE EIGHT. Eight groups left in every convention with the winners advancing to the AFC and NFC championship video games for the suitable to play in Tremendous Bowl LV.

Within the wild card spherical, I acquired 4 out of six video games predicted appropriately solely lacking on Cleveland’s upset and selecting Seattle at dwelling. With simply 4 video games to forecast this must be fast however maybe not simple.

Los Angeles Rams at Inexperienced Bay: The Packers maintain the highest seed and whereas they gained’t be enjoying in entrance of a packed home at Lambeau Area, it doesn’t matter as a result of they’re the higher workforce. The Rams could also be with out defensive stud Aaron Donald however that too would solely be a partial setback. Aaron Rodgers is enjoying like he’s younger once more and he ought to be capable of carve up the Rams’ protection. Prediction: Packers 31, Rams 17.

Cleveland at Kansas Metropolis: Pittsburgh’s Chase Claypool says the Browns are going to get “clapped” after they face the Chiefs on Sunday. I’ve by no means heard of anybody being clapped however regardless, Claypool adopted in teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster’s footsteps and opened his lure when he shouldn’t be. With that stated, I do agree with Claypool that this sport is not going to be shut. Cleveland did a terrific job of capitalizing on Pittsburgh’s errors after which the lack of the Steelers’ protection unable to make some key stops, in addition to the Browns making no errors of their very own, and enjoying persistently acquired them to the place they’re now. That is the place it ends. Prediction: Chiefs 45, Browns 24.

Baltimore at Buffalo: ABSOLUTELY one of the best sport of the weekend. The Ravens are the scariest workforce left not simply in my view however others as effectively. I consider this sport will experience on the arm of Josh Allen as as to whether or not the Payments can prevail. However my intestine says the Ravens are on a mission and Lamar Jackson enjoying with a chip on his shoulder. That makes them very harmful. Prediction: Ravens 27, Payments 24.

Tampa at New Orleans: The divisional spherical ends on Sunday with what is likely to be Drew Brees’s final hurrah and who is aware of, perhaps Tom Brady doesn’t return to the sector both for the 2021 season. The Bucs misplaced twice to the Saints this season 34-23 within the season opener and on November 8, New Orleans took Tampa to process ending them in type 38-3. The Bucs had some bother with Washington final weekend and they’re in for a more durable process this time round. Prediction: Saints 34, Bucs 28.
