NFL Playoffs 2018: Divisional Round Sunday

New, comments

The second day of the divisional round where the final AFC and one NFC teams to play for the Conference Championship are decided

Today, the Jaguars take on the Steelers at 1:05 p.m. ET in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at Heinz Field.

The Jaguars absolutely dominated the Steelers at home this season, but it is now the playoffs. Can Blake Blortles and that defense do enough to overcome Ben Roethlisberger, LeVeon Bell, and Antonio Brown? Should be a good matchup for the Jaguars secondary and the Steelers wide receiver core.

Then, the Saints take on the Vikings at 4:40 p.m. ET in Minneapolis, Minnesota at U.S. Bank Stadium.

This is a matchup between one of the top offenses this season against the top defense this season. The Saints always have a good offense with Drew Brees at the helm, but this season they have produced proportionally more of their yardage with their running backs than in the air to the receivers, so will the Vikings defense be able to contain Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara? The real question is, will we continue to see the Vikings offense produce as well as it has even though they are being led by the third stringer, Case Keenum? With the way the Saints defense has played this season, it will probably be difficult.

This may be some of the best playoff football we see this year so stick around and let the discussion begin!
