Featured Game | Kansas City bosses vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Scoring 8.5 points with a team like Kansas City that has struggled to move away from the clubs this season seems like a precarious way to go down, but the Chiefs feel like a team that’s just been waiting to flip the switch.
“After saying goodbye, they start another round of playoffs with Patrick Mahomes, who played at the MVP level for the rest of the year. He has a mismatch with Jacksonville’s defense, which can see him cut his way on the field. The Jags allowed for an NFL-record 6.8 yards per attempt, with throws coming in less than 2.5 seconds. Mahomes, meanwhile, led the NFL season in the EPA in dropping with less than 2.5 seconds per shot. One of his main targets, of course, will be Travis Kelce, who is now dealing with a Jacksonville defense that has allowed him to tie for third in receiving yards and third in receiving yards this season. Translation: K.C. should be able to move the ball freely.
“When these teams met in Week 10, the Chiefs were able to beat the Jaguars 10 and even 20 at halftime. Two second-half substitutions in this match made things look a bit closer than they actually were. as long as Mahomes doesn’t let the turnover get out of hand this weekend, Kanas City should be thriving.
“This matchup is also another matchup between Andy Reid and one of his former assistants, Doug Pederson. Reid has an outstanding track record in his coaching tree, including a 4-0 record in the playoffs.”
CBS Sports’ Tyler Sullivan points to history as the reason he takes the favorites to cover the spread this week in Kansas City. To read its round column of divisions, click here.
“I don’t think they (Jaguars) beat the Chiefs. Simply do not. But I think they will spin. I think they will score offensively. main problems. Block Chris Jones and you’ll score. Dot. End of the story. I know it’s a big thing to do, but if you block him, you get points. So I think Jacksonville will score, I think they’re going to spin the game, but I think the Chiefs will win. So I’ll take Jaguars AND over as two of my best bets in this game.

New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles

Featured Game | Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants
“On paper, it looks like this game could turn into a blast: The Eagles have better offense, better defense, and a healthy Jalen Hurts is better than Daniel Jones. And like I said before, I’m NOT going to overdo it all this week, and the most notable thing about this game is that these two teams have already played twice this season, with the Giants winning 70-38.
“When two divisional rivals meet in the playoffs, I don’t necessarily pay attention to what happened in the regular season, but in this game it’s hard to ignore. The Eagles have beaten the Giants twice this year, winning 48-22 and 22-16, and yes, I count the latter score as a blast because it was 19-3 halfway through the fourth quarter.
“Apparently, beating a team three times in one season should be hard, but I wanted to find out, so I decided to do some research (actually, it’s just emailing our research department, so there’s not really a lot of work to do with on my part, so don’t feel sorry for me).
“Anyway, since 1970, a total of 24 teams have won 2-0 against a divisional opponent in the regular season and then faced them again in the playoffs, and these 24 teams won 15-9 in game three, which means 62.5% of the teams ended the three-match streak but it also means the 0-2 team won the third match 37.5% of the time and I guess what I’m trying to say here is that’s what I did all the research for nothing because that’s for little information to help me choose this game.
“The Eagles are big favourites, but I’m not sure I can trust them now, mainly due to the fact that I’ve seen them play three bad games in a row to end the season.
“By the time this game started, Jalen Hurts had only played one game in the last month and he didn’t look good in that game. Also, during the Eagles’ win in Week 14, the Giants missed three starters – – DL Leonard Williams, CB Adoree’ Jackson, S Xavier McKinney – all of whom could make a huge impact this week. I mean, just look at what Jackson did to Justin Jefferson during the wild card round.
“I’m not saying the Giants are this year’s team of destiny, but I’m starting to feel that way. The last THREE times the Giants won a playoff opening game, they ended up in the Super Bowl, and I’ll say Saturday night they’re going to take a step closer by shocking the Eagles.

Featured Game | Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals
“This is the game of the weekend if you love the quarterback game. Joe Burrow vs. Josh Allen. We thought we would see this match in Week 17, but the match was canceled after Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest. It was the right decision to make, but also why this game is in Buffalo. Had the Bengals won that game and led early, this contest would have been held in Cincinnati. That’s how it is in Buffalo. Neither team looked good last week with backup quarterbacks and both struggled to advance. I think both will play better here. The Bengals are having issues with their offensive line, possibly three starters dropped out, but the Bills didn’t quite do so well on the passer last week against Miami, and Burrow gets the ball out quickly. This should be a shootout where both quarterbacks have their big days. Ultimately, I think Allen and the Bills will win in the fourth quarter.
CBS Sports NFL senior writer Pete Prisco takes the Bills to win but the Bengals to keep him close. To read his Divisional Round breakdown, click here.
“I’m sure everyone is excited about this match. The last time these two teams played, we all witnessed the unfortunate incident of Damar Hamlin. Fortunately, he recovered enough for both teams to focus on football again. Discounting the canceled bout earlier this year, this is the first meeting between Joe Burrow and Josh Allen.
“It’s probably the game of the weekend. This is the first playoff game between two teams on at least eight win streaks since the 2016 AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers. I have to say that” I am surprised that this spread is what it is. When it opened at -4 BUF, I really thought it would be bet. No.
“I expected both the Bills and the Bengals to blow their opponents away at Super Wild Card Weekend. The Buffalo-Miami Dolphins matchup particularly surprised me because Allen spun the ball three times. This year, he became the first player to lead the NFL in turnovers and playoffs since Eli Manning in 2007. By the way, Manning won the Super Bowl that year.
“If you follow my postseason bracket, the Bills are my official Super Bowl pick. I think it also helps in this matchup that the Bengals are dealing with a lot of injuries in the offensive line with Alex Cappa and Jonah Williams, so La’el Collins has already been ruled out for this year. Having said that, I want to score points with the Bengals. Am I securing my Bills Super Bowl prediction? Perhaps. But I also predicted that the Bengals would cover a Super Bowl LVI spread against the Los Angeles Rams and lose by exactly three points.

Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers
Time: Sunday, 18:30 ET (Fox), broadcast on fuboTV (try it for free) Open: 49ers -4, O/U 46
Featured Game | San Francisco 49ers vs Dallas Cowboys
“The crazy thing about this game is that there’s definitely a chance it could turn into an offensive gunfight. As of Week 7, these are the TWO TOP SCORING teams in the NFL, which mainly has to do with the fact that both teams had something big happen this week: The 49ers traded Christian McCaffrey while Dak Prescott returned from injury.
“While this match could turn into a shootout, it could also turn into a defensive fight as both of these teams are ranked in the top five for the fewest points allowed in the 2022 season.
“The most compelling coaching matchup in the game is definitely Kyle Shanahan’s attack against Dan Quinn’s defense. I swear, every time these two guys are on the same court together, something crazy happens. I’m sure everyone remembers the Falcons’ epic fall in Super Bowl LI. Quinn was the Falcons’ head coach in that game and Shanahan was the offensive coordinator, so I guess we’ll finally find out who we should blame for Atlanta’s fall.
“The 49ers have been one of the best teams in the NFL this year, but I’m still not sure how they will look against a good team. The 49ers had the easiest roster strength in the NFL this year and a half, they won in the wrong division (including the playoffs, they won 7-0 against NFC West teams and 7-4 against everyone else). Also, since Brock Purdy took over the starting position, the 49ers haven’t really been tested because they haven’t really faced any good teams. Purdy looked great, but faced five teams in the regular season that finished with a combined record of 35-49- 1.
“The 49ers were the underdog last year and I picked them to upset the Cowboys. This year I’m doing the opposite. Only four rookie quarterbacks – Shaun King, Ben Roethlisberger, Joe Flacco, Mark Sanchez – have ever made it to a conference title game, and I don’t think Purdy is fifth.
“And you know what, I’ll even say it all ends with a game-winning goal from a guy (Brett Maher) who can’t score an extra point.”
John Breech loves the underdogs this week and takes the Cowboys to advance to the NFC Championship match. To read its round column of divisions, click here.
“The 49ers beat the Cowboys to their spot in last year’s playoffs, so this will be a chance for the Cowboys to level things up. Dallas beat Tampa Bay on Monday night, so it’s another away game in a short week that will be a challenge for the 49ers to actually have an extra rest day as they played last Saturday. But the Cowboys seemed to find their attack against the Bucs, especially Dak Prescott. The 49ers have better defense than Tampa Bay, but the Dallas offensive will be able to move the ball. For the 49ers, it will be Brock Purdy against the pressure of Dallas. Purdy was outstanding from taking over as a five-game starter to the end of the regular season. He played well beating the Seahawks last week, but this is going to be the best defense he’s faced. The rush in Dallas can be a pain, which I believe is the case here. Prescott will be better in this matchup between the two quarterbacks as Dallas reverses the upset.

Before you make any Cowboys vs. 49ers or NFL Divisional Round predictions, you need to see what SportsLine Senior Analyst Larry Hartstein has to say. A former head writer for Covers and The Linemakers, Hartstein combines an extensive network of Vegas sources with an analytical approach honed while working for Pro Football Focus. He entered the 2022 NFL season with an all-time 427-344 in NFL side picks (plus $3,764 for $100 players), including a 394-330 against the spread. Hartstein went 68-50 ATS and 8-3 in money-line games last season and earned $1,552. Hartstein also has a 14-4 record in his last 18 picks against the spread involving the Cowboys, meaning he is uniquely qualified to make this pick.
