The highest number of AFC playoff games.

Now that the doubts are gone, we can reach the real half of the NFL season. The play-offs kick off this weekend with four first-round games, with the top four-seeded teams getting a crucial pass (Colts, Seahawks, Broncos, Bears). Weather conditions will have an impact, with the Patriots and Bengals holding cold-weather outdoor games this weekend in the AFC. Here is the highest number of AFC playoff games on Saturday.

Steelers at Bengals: The good news is that there is a lot of data to be tested as both teams have played alone twice this season. The Steelers come into this game full of confidence, with a 4-0 SU / 3-1 ATS run playing at a high level in all stages of the game. Mid-season decline (injury) that puts their post-season chances at a distance in the rear-view mirror. The world game of bread and butter is moving, earning 190, 142, 209 and 199 yards in the last four games! And the defense was fun, allowing 8 points for each of the last four games! In total the Steelers allow 16 ppg, and will start the playoffs along the way, when they are 7-1 below total. Pittsburgh is also a 6-2 SU / ATS on the road.

The Bengals defense has been a major factor.

The Bengals entered the playoffs for their two worst games this season, losing 37-27 at home to the Bills, and 37-3 in Kansas City. So what does it offer? The Bengals defense has been a major factor, as they offer many yards and points. In the last 7 games Bengals have held only two of their rivals under 28 points! When Cincy and Pittsburgh met on December 4, the Bengals won 38-31, with 102 running runs and 222 passing passes. They were also lucky enough to turn around and get the kick key.

In that match, Cincy lined up to stop Pittsburgh running and Ben Roethlisberger had 379 yards to pass. But in the first game, a 27-13 win over Pittsburgh, the Steelers had 221 yards. Are the Bengals ready for the start? Cincy is 10-2 SU, 7-5 ATS as a favorite this season, but 1-3 SU, 1-2-1 ATS as a dog. They allow 17.8 ppg as chalk, but 34 as a dog! This is also the first Bengals memory game since 1990.

Who started the last 7 games.

Jaguars for the Patriots: Both teams bring strong physical defenses, especially against running, to this game. Which means that quarterback and passing games will be key. The Jaguars were accompanied by mobile QB’s David Garrard, but Byron Leftwich is rumored to be available. It makes sense to stick with Garrard, who started the last 7 games. The game will be played on Saturday night, so will the Florida boys be worried about the cold New England January? The Jaguars have not been in a playoff game since 1999. Jacksonville is a 6-2 SU / ATS on the road.

The Patriots have had a two-season legend. The first half was full of injuries, no running game, and the second was bad. The second half has resurfaced, largely due to a number of recovering players (LB Tedy Bruschi, Richard Seymour, Corey Dillon, WR David Givens) and changes made in the second half (dismissing Dwayne Starks unemployed / injured rookie CB Ellis Hobbs, who played very well) . The Jaguars have played one of the coldest games of the season, winning 20-14 in Cleveland in the first week of December. The teams met in December in the field two years ago, with the Patriots winning 28-13 in a tense situation. We will see how important the knowledge of the Patriots and the home arena is. And the prize money for the winners? A trip to Denver and Indy! We wish you the best of luck, as always … Al McMordie.
