Last week there were great meetings and we saw results that nobody expected. Teams that we thought would be out of the Divisional Round are alive and stronger than ever. Everything ready for the playoffs to go ahead.
Philadelphia Eagles vs Atlanta Falcons
The first game of the Divisional Round is opened by the Falcons against the Eagles. Atlanta surprised last week by defeating the Rams 26 to 13, nobody expected this result, we imagined that the Los Angeles team would dominate the match and make good his season, but it was not. Now, Atlanta comes to this match with the spirits up to the sky and with all the desire to defeat Philadelphia.
This will be the fourth time that both teams meet in postseason play; The Eagles take the lead with two games won, both at home. Since 2012 the Falcons do not win by visiting Philadelphia.
As they were in the table in the regular season, the locals this time would have the advantage and the numbers in their favor, but unfortunately lost Carson Wentz with an injury, one of his great men that made a difference in every game.
The incentive for Atlanta is not only that the Eagles lost one of their best players, but that their defense has improved a lot, they have not allowed more than 13 points in the last two matches.
New England Patriots vs Tennessee Titans
This will undoubtedly be one of the most anticipated games of the weekend and we say it because the best team of the NFL this season and current champions, will receive the Titans, whom everyone gave for eliminated last week, but they gave the surprise by leaving Kansas out, trailing an 18-point deficit.
It will be an interesting match because Tennessee will put all the meat on the spit to hurt the Patriots. The key is that the Titans make a great ground attack and Derrick Henry leave again inspired account as the week passes where he had a great game against the Chiefs, achieving 156 yards and a touchdown.
For their part, the Patriots are a tough block to beat at home; In the last two games between the two teams, New England has scored 92 points and the Titans have scored only 16. It is likely that Brady will continue with the hegemony against Tennessee and do them such damage that it leaves them out of any aspiration for the title. Conference.
