Why the Packers and Chiefs WILL Win

NFL Previews and Predictions:

There are just six teams remaining in contention for a trip to Houston and SB LI.  No surprises on Saturday, both home teams were in control.  Today has a chance to be a much different story.  The AFC winner will go to New England…the NFC winner will face Atlanta.  If the Packers win, they’ll play on the road…the Cowboys would host the Falcons.  Time for the picks…by the way… I went 2-0 Saturday.

My Selections…               Atlanta—35  Seattle—20            New England—31  Houston—10 

Actual results…                Atlanta—36  Seattle—20            New England—34  Houston—16


Pittsburgh Steelers (11-5)  at  Kansas City Chiefs (12-4)  Sunday  7:20       NBC

Sunday’s games are both hard to read…even matchups with hard to figure results.  I love the Steelers offensive diversity.  The Chiefs don’t impress with any overall team stats.  Pittsburgh features killer B’s … Ben Roethlisberger—Antonio Brown—and LeVeon Bell.  Can Kansas City’s D…stop the Steeler’s B’s?  Everything points to the Steelers, except I like the home team…and I’ll take the home team.

Kansas City—26  Pittsburgh—23 


Green Bay Packers (10-6)  at  Dallas Cowboys (13-3)  Sunday  3:40             FOX

Dak Prescott of the Cowboys has not played like a rookie all season long.  Ezekiel Elliott has not played like a rookie all season long.  It’s time…not so much for Elliott, but for Prescott.  The rookie 4th round draft choice has answered all the questions, made all the throws, and handled all of the Dallas media scrutiny.  In a word—Prescott has been GREAT.  I’m betting the “playoffs” and two week layoff will combine to lead to a “rookie-like” performance on Sunday.  The momentum that the Packers carry into this matchup is impressive.  Consider the two key matchups:  Aaron Rodgers vs Dak Prescott (I’ve got Rodgers), Mike McCarthy vs Jason Garrett (I’ve got McCarthy).  It would be better if Green Bay had Jordy Nelson…they don’t.  Green Bay has averaged 35 ppg in the last five games.  I like the train the Packers are riding.  It’s not time to stop—not yet.

Green Bay—31  Dallas—26
