I chose the Chicago Bears because I thought their team name sounded cool; I'm guessing they're not very good if everyone else is picking Saints.

Good guess .... Saints are favored by 10 points.

The Buffalo Bills have not won a playoff game since before their quarterback was born. That will end this weekend, as I'm picking them.

The Rams have a question mark at QB, and the Seahawks just beat them two weeks ago. I expect a repeat Seattle win.

The Washington Landoverians (they play in Landover, Maryland, not in DC) have a good defensive line. Tom Brady struggles with pressure. But the WFT's offense sucks, and they also have quarterback injury issues. Give me the Bucs.

Ravens at Titans will hopefully be the game of the weekend, a long-anticipated rematch of last postseason. The Titans won it last year on their way to the AFC Championship Game. This is a match-up of the top-2 rushing attacks in the league. It'll be close, but I think there's too much at stake for the Ravens to give this one away. I'll take them in a low-confidence pick.

The Saints are heavily favored against my mom's Bears. I see no reason to doubt them, though I don't know if they'll cover the 10 points.

The Browns (players and coaches alike) have been decimated by COVID, so their season will end at the hands of their hated rivals in the Steel City.
