NFL Divisional Playoff Picks

After four wins by the road teams last week.....

Chiefs at Patriots (Saturday 4:35pm)
Everything here says Chiefs are ripe for the upset win. KC's won 11 in a row. Pats have lost 4 of 6.  NE's offense is wildly unhealthy (Brady, Gronk, Edelman, Amendola, offensive line, etc). Plus, they have the distraction of Chandler Jones.  So, having said all that, just a hunch...
Winner: Patriots

Packers at Cardinals (Saturday 8:15pm)
The Cardinals whooped up on Green Bay a few weeks back and know that an upset by GB undoes everything they've done all year. They'll be ready.
Winner: Cardinals

Seahawks at Panthers (Sunday 1pm)
Let's be honest, as good as Seattle is, they're lucky to be here thanks to the shank by Minnesota's Blair Walsh last Sunday.
Winner: Panthers

Steelers at Broncos (Sunday 4:40pm)
No Bell, No Brown, No Williams and possibly no Big Ben.  The Broncos must be licking their chops even if Peyton Manning doesn't play well.
Winner: Broncos
