Jared picks the NFL Championship Round – Packers vs Buccaneers, Chiefs vs Bills
Where and when to watch: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Green Bay Packers, 3:05 pm on FOX; Buffalo Bills vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 6:40 pm on CBS
PACKERS (-3.5) Buccaneers (51)
Jared’s Pick: Packers
Breakout Player: WR Davante Adams
Green Bay took an ugly loss to Tampa Bay earlier this season. Since then, the Packers have been on fire. They currently rank 1st in points per game and they will match up against the 8th ranked defense in points allowed per game. With the Buccaneers having possibly the best run stoppage in the NFL, I’d expect another big game from MVP candidate Aaron Rodgers. Both of these teams have unbelievably good rosters, but Green Bay has been playing better. The Packers should cover.
Bills (+3) CHIEFS (54)
Jared’s Pick: Chiefs
Breakout Player: TE Travis Kelce
Kansas City won a very tight game against Cleveland last week, and it shouldn’t have been that close. The Chiefs should win this game with Patrick Mahomes active, but Buffalo should keep it close and could pull of an upset. Neither defense is amazing, but both offenses are likely top five. This should be a very high scoring game. If Kansas City can contain the Allen-Diggs duo, they should win.
