2021 NFL playoffs: What to watch for in Patriots-Bills on Super Wild Card Weekend

The AFC East title came down to the final week of the regular season, and a week later, the division’s heavyweights -- the Bills and Patriots -- will battle to advance to the AFC Divisional Round. They’ll do it having split the season series in unusual fashion, with the road team winning both games. If it’s freezing cold playoff football you prefer, this is likely the wild-card game not to miss – the weather forecast in Buffalo calls for a high of 10 degrees. It will not be for the meek.

Ranking the 14 playoff quarterbacks based on NGS' new Passing Score metric

The Next Gen Stats team is proud to introduce our new Passing Score, which evaluates a quarterback's execution on every targeted pass attempt and translates it to a palatable score between 50 to 99. We joined forces with the AWS Proserve data science group to create this comprehensive metric powered by an ensemble of seven different machine-learning models. Our goal was to improve upon the lack of context surrounding the division of credit in traditional box-score-derived metrics.

Week 18 NFL game picks: Chargers edge Raiders to punch playoff ticket; Seahawks upset Cardinals

ML: +360 · 7-9 WHERE: Empower Field at Mile High (Denver) Vic Fangio had to wait until age 60 to get his first head-coaching opportunity. It's a shame that his three-year tenure, marked by what ifs, will likely end against a Chiefs problem his defense was unable to solve. Fangio has never won against Andy Reid, and Patrick Mahomes has never lost to the Broncos, dating back to the Vance Joseph days. The timing is off here, too: For the first time all season, it's easy to see that Mahomes and this Chiefs' offense are back in full flow.

2021 NFL season, Week 17: What we learned from Sunday's games

37-10 2021 · 7-9-0 Grant Gordon's takeaways:. Packers roll through NFC North foe en route to No. 1 seed. For roughly 26 minutes of game time, the Packers dominated Sunday night, but had no touchdowns to show for it. Then Aaron Rodgers found Allen Lazard. Ball game. It produced just a 13-point lead, but for all intents and purposes, the game was sealed there. It was somewhat emblematic of Green Bay's run through the NFC North this season. Before the 2021 campaign even commenced, most prognosticated the Packers would run to a third consecutive division title and they have. Green Bay is 4-1 within the division this season and has one game left against the Lions. The Packers have won five games in a row overall now. They've dominated and claimed nail-biters, and they've beaten lowly foes and contenders. On Sunday night, they locked up the NFC's No. 1 seed and did so by simply taking care of business against an overmatched opponent. Though it was bitterly cold in Green Bay on this evening, Rodgers (29 for 38, 288 yards, two touchdowns) still got hot and Davante Adams (11 receptions for 136 yards, TD) did, too. The sky is blue, water's wet, it's cold in Wisconsin and Rodgers and the Packers rule the NFC North (and the NFC as a whole for that matter, right now).

2021 NFL playoffs: What to watch for in Raiders-Bengals on Super Wild Card Weekend

The Raiders and Bengals arrived to the postseason under much different circumstances. The Bengals clinched the AFC North in Week 17 and rested starters in Week 18, allowing some key players to heal a few bruises ahead of the playoffs. For better or worse, it was a luxury the Bengals earned the right to exercise. The Raiders had no such breathing room. They were 6-7 in mid-December and had to rally for four straight wins to close the season, capped by a Week 18 overtime thriller against the Chargers, just to clinch a wild-card berth. In short, the Raiders snuck in the backdoor while the Bengals slept on the couch. They’ll meet for the second time this season, the first being a resounding 32-13 Cincinnati win in Week 11.

Week 17 NFL game picks: Chiefs best Bengals for 9th straight win; Cowboys hand Cards 4th straight loss

WHERE: FedExField (Landover, Md.) I was flummoxed, floored, flabbergasted by this line. That's never a good sign because I'm a basic bro, and if I'm that surprised Philadelphia's only favored by 3, then many others probably are, too. The Eagles rarely put together complete games on offense, but they don't need to. When they start rolling downhill, they are one of the most unstoppable groups in the league. Even with players back on Washington's roster from the COVID-19 list, injuries have decimated the Football Team defense. Taylor Heinicke's glass slipper no longer fits, and the WFT has the profile of a 4-11 squad that is no longer punching above its weight.

2021 NFL playoffs: What to watch for in Cardinals-Rams on Super Wild Card Weekend

The rubber match is on in L.A. The Cardinals and Rams split the season series 1-1, with both road teams winning. Since getting off to a hot 7-0 start, including a 37-20 shellacking of the Rams in L.A., the Cards have struggled, backing their way into the postseason, losing six of their last 10 games and four of the past five. The Cardinals are the eighth team in NFL history to make the playoffs despite losing four games in December/January of that season. The 2012 Ravens were the only team to win multiple playoff games that season, going on to win the Super Bowl.

2021 NFL season, Week 16: What we learned from Sunday's games

2021 · 7-7-1 Nick Shook's takeaways:. Rumors of the Chiefs' demise were greatly exaggerated. Kansas City is firing on all cylinders and maintained its speed Sunday even without Travis Kelce, racking up 30 points and over 375 yards of offense in a lopsided victory Sunday. Patrick Mahomes turned to Byron Pringle to replace some of Kelce's production, connecting with the receiver twice for touchdowns. Derrick Gore replaced Clyde Edwards-Helaire with contributions in the running and passing games, and Mecole Hardman even chipped in with a touchdown. Defensively, the Chiefs continue to roll, stifling Pittsburgh's offense while enjoying three takeaways. The Chiefs are right back where they were a year ago and don't appear to be going away anytime soon.
