Line: Heads -8.5, O/U 52

These two teams faced off in November, where the leaders were defeated by the Jaguars, 27-17. Jacksonville’s defense struggled to stop Patrick Mahomes, who threw for 331 yards and four touchdowns and an interception. But the Jaguars defense has been playing good ball lately. They scored the game-winning goal against the Titans in Week 18 to earn a playoff berth, then held the Chargers to just three points in the second half on Saturday night while waiting for the offense to form up after a nightmare start.

It says something about the Jags that they were able to bounce back and complete the third-largest comeback in NFL postseason history, and Lawerence deserves a lot of the credit. On his first seven carries, he completed 5 of 18 passes for 35 yards and four interceptions. In his last five drives, he completed 23 of 29 passes for 253 yards and four touchdowns to seal a 31-30 victory.

Looking into next weekend, the Jaguars offense can’t afford a slow start against what is statistically the biggest offense in the league. Hopefully, we’re in the crossfire, with both commercial strikes strikes.

(3) Cincinnati Bengals at (2) Buffalo Bills

when: Sunday, 3 p.m. ET
television: CBS | Stream: Paramount +
Line: Bills -5, O/U 50

It feels right that we got this match. Bills vs. Fortunately, he recovered, and the two teams were able to refocus on soccer. It looked like we were in a penalty shootout before this unfortunate event happened, and now, we’re getting a rematch.

The Bills defeated the Dolphins in Super Wild Card weekend, 34-31, but it didn’t feel like a huge victory. Despite the play of third-string rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson and the Dolphins took a 17-0 lead in the second quarter to tie the game with 33 seconds left in the first half, then the defense recovered a fumble for a touchdown early in the second half. Half to get 24-20 bullets. While Buffalo eventually had a win, the Bills were Biggest Favorites in NFL Wild-Card Tour History. They didn’t exactly live up to expectations.

Josh Allen threw for 352 yards and three touchdowns, but also threw two interceptions and had three fumbles, one of which was lost. Buffalo can’t lose a turnover battle against Cincinnati if it wants to advance to the AFC Championship Game.

Cincinnati didn’t put in an incredibly impressive performance at Super Wild Card Weekend either, with Joe Burrow and Co. Downing the Ravens, 24-17. Tyler Huntley and JK Dobbins gave Cincy a run for her money, but A.J 98 yards fumble recovery touchdown Bengals defensive end Sam Hubbard finished early in the fourth quarter on being the game-winning touchdown target.

Both teams will have to play better to move forward. I’m not sure how many people expected Miami to drop 31 points over Buffalo with a third-string quarterback, or for the Ravens to post 364 yards of total offense with a hit quarterback.

NFC

(6) New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles (1)

when: Saturday, 8:15 p.m. ET
television: Fox | Stream: FuboTV
Line: Eagles -7.5, O/U 47.5

Here’s a divisional match in the divisional round. The Eagles swept the season series with the Giants this year, outscoring them by 26 points in December, then Davis Webb kept a close rematch in the regular season finale, with the Giants ultimately losing 22-16.

The Giants offense looked pretty impressive in their 31-24 win over Vikings Sunday. Daniel Jones became the first player in NFL playoff history to record over 300 receiving yards, two pass completions and 70 receiving yards in his first postseason start, while Isaiah Hodgins caught eight passes for 105 yards and a touchdown. Saquon Barkley wasn’t shabby either, recording 109 yards from scrimmage and scoring on two touchdowns. Sunday marked the Giants’ first win since Super Bowl XLVI vs New England Patriots on February 5, 2012.

While the Giants managed to take advantage of a poor defense in the first round of the playoffs, an even tougher challenge awaits them next weekend. The Eagles are the only team in the NFL with three best offense and defense in the top three, as they have looked like an elite team since the start of the 2022 season. Philly will be swinging as Jalen Hurts takes the field for his second career playoff start.

(5) Dallas Cowboys At (2) San Francisco 49ers

when: Sunday, 6:30 p.m. ET
television: Fox | Stream: FuboTV
Line: 49ers -3.5, O/U 46

Having snapped a losing streak on the road to an eight-game playoff, the Cowboys will look to carry the momentum from a solid victory over the Buckeyes to Santa Clara as they beat the 49ers. The last time these two teams met came last season when San Francisco went to AT&T Stadium and kicked off On offense, Dallas was sent home early in the Super Wild Card weekend.

As they look to avenge that loss a year ago, Dak Prescott will have to take on the best defense in the NFL at the Niners. That unit held the Seahawks to just six points in the second half of their playoff victory on Saturday and also boasts rookie player Brock Purdy’s offense. Interestingly, Purdy and Prescott both threw multiple touchdowns and rushed for a score in their playoff victories. There’s also no shortage of star power in positions of skill in this head-to-head showdown with Christian McCaffrey, Sir Lamb, Debo Samuel and Tony Pollard.
