Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts (3:25 Sat, ABC)
J.J. Watt will have a career game as the Colts offensive line can’t send much help his way with Jadeveon Clowney on the other side of the Houston defensive line. Tyrann Matthew will play well in his first career playoff game and the Texans’ defensive backfield will limit Colts WR T.Y. Hilton. Deshaun Watson and the tandem of Lamar Miller and Deandre Hopkins will prove too much for the Colts.
Texans win 28-24
Dallas Cowboys vs. Seattle Seahawks (7:15 Sat. FOX)
Experience is important come playoff time and Russell Wilson will lead the Seahawks to victory behind a big game from Chris Carson. The Seahawks’ fast defense will do just enough to get a W.
Seahawks win 27-16
L.A Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens (12:05 Sun. CBS)
Baltimore’s stingy defense will reek havoc just as in the teams’ first matchup this season. With Phillip Rivers under constant pressure, the Chargers’ offense will struggle. And nobody has figured out how to stop Lamar Jackson yet.
Ravens win 24-13
Chicago Bears vs. Philadelphia Eagles (3:40 Sun. NBC)
Mitch Trubisky will lead the Bears to victory at Soldier field. Allen Robinson will have a huge game against a banged up Eagles’ secondary. And don’t forget the Chicago defense allows the fewest points in the league. Philly magic runs out.
Bears win 31-20
