NFL Saturday Divisional Playoffs: Jared picks the Rams vs Packers and Ravens vs Bills
PACKERS (-7) Rams (45.5)
Jared’s Pick: Packers
Breakout Player: QB Aaron Rodgers
L.A.’s defense was the sole reason for their win against Seattle last week and they have been able to shut down offenses all year. This week, however, they' re up against Aaron Rodgers and arguably the best offense in football. The Packers currently rank first in the league with an average of 31.8 offensive points per game. Even if Davante Adams is shut down by star Rams CB Jalen Ramsey, Rodgers makes all of his receivers look like Pro Bowlers. Green Bay should cover.
Ravens (+2.5) BILLS (49.5)
Jared’s Pick: Ravens
Breakout Player: QB Lamar Jackson
Buffalo won in a very close game last week to a team that I think they are way better than. Going against arguably the hottest team in the NFL right now, I think they can be eliminated. Baltimore’s defense is definitely going to give the elite Josh Allen-Stefon Diggs connection a hard time, and I think Allen is going to have a ton of trouble running the ball. It is going to be up to Lamar Jackson being consistent on Saturday. If Lamar can run the ball like he normally does and avoid turnovers, the Ravens should win.
