Kansas City Chiefs (13-3) vs Las Vegas Raiders (6-10), Saturday at 4:30 P.M. EST
There have been alterations to the AFC playoff picture and that has made for some confusing instances. Kansas City can lock up the top seed in the AFC with a win here and that should be motivation enough. Las Vegas comes into this contest without many positives as they have struggled to close out games all year.
Prediction: Chiefs 31, Raiders 22
One should imagine that the Chiefs will destroy the Raiders, even though this is a road game for them. Jarrett Stidham did a good job in his first start with Vegas last week, but that should not make someone comfortable enough to predict an upset. Patrick Mahomes and company should be able to throw the ball downfield all day long.
Tennessee Titans (7-9) vs Jacksonville Jaguars (8-8), Saturday at 8:15 P.M. EST
Welcome to a playoff matchup before the tournament even gets started. This will be a winner take all contest between the Titans and Jaguars. The winner will emerge as the champions of the AFC South division. Many thought the Titans would have run away from this group, but the opposite has happened for a multitude of reasons.
Prediction: Jaguars 23, Titans 17
Overtime would be the best way to end this game, but it is hard to pick against Jacksonville in this one. The Jaguars are playing well right now, and the Titans have too many question marks to overcome. It will take Josh Dobbs to have the best game of his football career to get Tennessee into the playoffs.
