NFL Picks Divisional Round: Patriots Overcome Chargers To Advance

NFL Picks Divisional Round: Patriots Overcome Chargers To Advance

The Cowboys play great at home, finishing with a 7-1 home record in the regulars season. Anything can happen. And for sports bettors in New Jersey, why not capitalize on the unexpected? Preventing that pair from getting to Andrew Luck will be pivotal if the Colts want to keep pace with the Chiefs.

The victory was a big confidence boost for the Chiefs, particularly on defense.

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.

Not since the 2012 season has a team contested the Wild Card Round and then reached the Super Bowl, with the Baltimore Ravens beating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII on that occasion.

SpaceX to layoff 10 per cent of workforce
In December, it launched its first United States national security space mission from Cape Canaveral, Florida. SpaceX makes most of its money from multibillion-dollar contracts with NASA and satellite launches.

Considering that both teams have solid run defenses, it will be no surprise to see the running game abandoned on both sides, and for all that passing action to add up to extra possessions for both sides, which is why the over cashes in well over half of SportsLine's simulations this week. For all the talk of the Chargers high-powered offense they have been rather pedestrian of late. All their numbers across the board are worse away from home, and that's particularly true of Dak Prescott's play. Aqib Talib covering covering Amari Cooper.

The Cowboys, the No. 4 seed in the NFC, are set to take on the No. 2-seeded Los Angeles Rams on Saturday night.

The Patriots were the only team in the National Football League to go 8-0 at home this season which would make this game seem like a sure win for them, right? New England simply seems to find a way this time of year, and though this year's team has its flaws, Los Angeles will have to be at their best and then some to win this. Our own Will Brinson has you covered there, including how the over-under total for the game is dropping like insane due to the expected weather conditions during the contest.

The NFL playoffs are underway; eight teams left will soon become four as they look to earn a spot in next week's conference championships. They have a future Hall of Fame Quarterback in Drew Brees, a Head Coach that has won a Super Bowl, a solid defense and they can run the ball. If they win the Super Bowl, that's how much each player would receive as a bonus. This is as good of a chance as ever for Rivers to make it to his first big game considering the team he has around him and something tells me the victor of this game will be heading to the Super Bowl considering the teams they have a chance to face.

Shareholders sue Google for hushing up alleged misconduct
Representatives of Google and John Doerr declined to comment. A lawsuit has been filed by a shareholder of Alphabet Inc .

Not to be outdone, the weather gods in Los Angeles, Calif. are blessing us with some heavy rainfall on Saturday, which already appears to be having an affect on the field at Los Angeles Coliseum. I said that I firmly believed that the team who emerged from the Eagles-Bears game last weekend would be heading to the Super Bowl, and I am sticking by that statement.

The Saints will be far too strong for the Eagles. And he just may slice through the Rams' defense.

New Orleans QB Drew Brees sits as the favorite to garner the award, which would be his second MVP after accomplishing the feat nine years ago. The once juggernaut of an offense that was putting up 30-plus points a game with relative ease, scored an average of 21.5 points per game over their final six games and only scored more than 30 points in two of them.
