Falcons/Rams has potential to be a great game - I know Atlanta have had a stuttering season, but they still have all the pieces there to go all the way in a wide open NFC, and of course the experience of doing it last year. Be interesting to see if the Rams can handle the occasion!

Chiefs/Titans has that sort of 16-13 tight, slightly boring defensive battle type feel to it. I struggle to see how the Titans will win it personally

Been hoping all season that our offense would click into gear and find something reminiscent of last years but it hasn't happened and it won't. This is a defence driven team now. They've been a much better unit since the halfway stage of the season. I expect our defence to keep it close until the 3rd quarter and then the rams will run away with it. 34-17 St Louis.

I can't believe in the titoons with their coaching staff going on the road to win a playoff game. Chiefs are the lock of the week. 27-16.

Not sure St Louis are going to win anything this season
Chiefs have a dreadful record in the playoffs in the last 10 play off years, 1-9 in fact. Cant ignore that, fancy the Titans to sneak it, even without Murray who has struggled this year. Conklin to handle Houston will be a big plus.

If the Titans can bottle up Hunt then they could force Smith into a mistake or two. Can't escape the feeling that if the Titans keep this close they'll come out on top at the very end.

Chiefs v Titans

Really don't rate the Titans too highly. They've developed a handy knack of winning games without playing well, but this looks a game too far for them.

Kansas City are still vulnerable Defensively, but their Offense looks to have regained it's early season form, and they should win this without too many concerns...

Chiefs 27 Titans 16

Rams v Falcons

If there's going to be a road win this week, this may well be it. Conversely, this could also be the most one sided game of the week. It all depends on which Atlanta side turns up.

Can see the Falcons utilising Freeman and Coleman plenty as receivers out of the backfield to try and negate the pass rush, while a rested Todd Gurley sees a heavy workload for the Rams Offense.

Think this likely goes down to the wire, with the Rams edging it...

Rams 28 Falcons 24

Anyone able to answer if NFL Gamepass shows the Playoff games live, or only after 24 hours?

Being completely serious. That improves their chances, they have been pointlessly giving him snaps which should have gone to Henry. Murray being out protects the Titans from the poor judgement of their own coaches.

The 3 teams that have torched the Titans this season have had deep threat QBs, Deshaun Watson, Big Ben and Goff, will they get beat by Alex Smith?
