We caught up with CBS Boston sports anchor Steve Burton to get his insights on the matchups.
Not very good at all. We still got one more.
The largest point spread is on the Saints, the team that is favored to win Super Bowl 53. However, I am not one of those people who believes this will happen for a couple of reasons. Defensive lineman Chris Jones and linebacker Dee Ford became the first pair of Kansas City players since 1992 to each record 13-plus sacks in the same season and the first since 2000. Can the second-year QB be ready for the Colts? Still, it bears watching, as plenty of playoff games have been inhibited by these types of factors.
So much for the Rams' league-worst ranking in run yards allowed per carry during the regular season (5.1).
This will be a tight game throughout, it will be high scoring and will come down to which quarterback can produce - if you ask me - I'm riding with Brady.
Rams over the Cowboys: Honestly this could go either way.
The Colts are going to need some help from their defense and will want to keep this as low-scoring of a game as possible. For all the talk of the Chargers high-powered offense they have been rather pedestrian of late. Dak Prescott has been serviceable, but has yet to put up a big game against a quality team.
‘Clearly an ambush’: Police chief details chaotic shooting scene
While Corona was investigating the crash, shots were fired and the she was struck, according to the Davis Police Department. The shooter, who later died from what police said was a self-inflicted gunshot wound , shot Corona several more times.
Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay felt the pressure.
Patrick Mahomes picked apart the Colts in his postseason debut, the Chiefs defense answered their chorus of critics with a stout performance, and Kansas City rolled to a 31-13 victory over Indianapolis in the divisional round Saturday to end 25 years of playoff frustration. The Chargers-Patriots play at 1:05 pm on Sunday, followed by the Eagles-Saints at 4:40 pm. Kansas City will have a full head of steam going into next week's game against the victor of the Los Angeles Chargers and New England Patriots (1:05 p.m. ET, Sunday). The Patriots finished the year winning their last two games, but do not let that fool you as their opponents were the lowly Bills and Jets at home. Furthermore, the Patriots have been suspect on the defensive side of the ball at times this year and in the playoffs that is a key to success. Add in a veteran Quarterback in Phillip Rivers and you have a team that has everything it needs to make a Super Bowl run.
New Orleans has the shortest odds of the eight teams to win Super Bowl 53 next month. Los Angeles won 30-22, and advance to the NFC championship game. It really ramps up during the division games.
"It means the world to me", he said post-game. The fans had a lot of anxiety about it. Furthermore, the offense led by Nick Foles proved they could do just enough against a top-tier defense to come away with a victory.
As for those two running backs, Gurley looked like himself on Saturday after missing Weeks 16 and 17 with a knee injury - especially on that 35-yard run. The Eagles surprised everyone with a win last week against Chicago, and look to keep that momentum and underdog magic going. Still, the running back duo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram is a force to be reckon with and having Drew Brees as your quarterback is another huge plus. They will probably have to lean hard on Ezekiel Elliott in this one, but with the Rams' ability to put up points quickly, Dallas has to play perfectly. Third cornerback Charvarius Ward and safety Jordan Lucas, who is starting in place of the injured Eric Berry, have played well over the past couple of games.
