The NFL is preparing for the Divisional Round weekend, and most football fans would say the Divisional Rounds of the NFL Playoffs is the best weekend of football as the field of 8 gets trimmed to the two teams who will play in the Super Bowl.
Unfortunately, the Pittsburgh Steelers finished just on the outside of the playoff picture after they didn’t get the help needed despite winning four straight games to finish the season 9-8. Nonetheless, it is time to take a look at the upcoming slate of games, and we, as a staff, make our picks for the weekend’s actions.
Take a look at game times, odds and our picks below:
