The New England Patriots will be unable to defend their 2019 Super Bowl win after losing to the Tennessee Titans in the wild card of the 2020 NFL Playoffs last week.
While ads on Super Bowl Betting NJ may have had the Pats looking like favorites, New England finds themselves on the outside looking in.
The Minnesota Vikings are back in the divisional round after an overtime win over the New Orleans Saints. They take on a newcomer in the San Francisco 49ers who have had a solid season and boast one of the NFC’s top defenses..
The Tennessee Titans are a bit of a surprise, but we saw a turning point for that time when they made a quarterback change. After toppling the Pats last week, they have a stiff test in MVP candidate Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens.
It’s no surprise to see Patrick Mahomes and the high-scoring Kansas City Chiefs, but their opponent, the Houston Texans didn’t always look like they would be here. They looked like they could be out of it early in their wild card game, but fought back to get here.
Two teams who are known for playoff success and are no surprise square off in probably the toughest divisional matchup as Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks take on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. The Seahawks are on the road, but they have excelled on the road.
The winner of the Seahawks and Packers game looks to be an early favorite, but don’t look past San Francisco, who caught many teams by surprise this season, and Baltimore, who gives defensive coordinators headaches with their offensive game, while also having a solid defense with a top-notch secondary.
All of the action kicks off on Saturday afternoon, with Minnesota and San Francisco kicking off at 4:35 p.m. ET.
