Last week the Browns upset the Steelers but in retrospect Cleveland showed some flaws.They had a + 5 turnover difference over Pittsburgh and only twice in NFL history has a team won with 5 or more turnovers than their opponent (I saw a graphic and the actual numbers are something like 2-176-5). And the Steelers with no running game and a dink and dunk passing game scored 31 points in the second half. KC is not going to have a plus 5 turnover differential and their offense is more potent than Pittsburgh's.Cleveland with Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb can run the ball and their best chance is to keep Patrick Mahomes and Co. on the sidelines.You can't score if you don't have the ball.

New Orleans (-3) over Tampa Bay

No team has ever played the Super Bowl in their home stadium.And unfortunately that trend will continue as I think the bad luck playoff problems that have plagued the Saints will come to an end.

Playoffs 4-4
KC won but didn't cover, New Awlins lost. Ugh

Playoffs 4-6

New Orleans cost me winning this weekend. Thats 3 choke years in a row at home. They made all the mistakes yesterday. Tampa’s defense played the way New Orleans usually does. My gut told me they could do it again this year ..... and damn if they did it.

Tough call who will pull it out this year. I haven't seen Mahomes' status, but even if he's perfect, they're no sure thing IMO.

I like Tampa Bay +4 over the Packers. They played like they were on a serious mission last night.

Tampa is playing Aaron Rodgers in Lambeau, not some ragarm QB

Brees needs to be strongly encouraged to retire. It's over.

The Tampa vs NO game was fairly even. Time of possession, 20 first downs each, even the yardage. The difference was the 3rd quarter fumble by Jared Cook and the cherry on top was Brees throwing 3 pics and the word is he’s retiring. If you think Green Bay will have 3 or more turnovers than Tampa has a chance. But if the Packers get rolling on offense........ 3 points are not enough. Tampa can usually stop the running attack but some of the good passing teams have ate them for lunch. Tampa has to hope Green Bay has a bad day or this one could be over easily.

Saw a report that Brees' wife put out a tweet that besides the cracked ribs, Brees had some issues with his rotator cuff and either his knee or ankle (can't remember which) that he didn't share with the team.But the interesting part was the rest of the tweet which used the past tense a lot regarding Brees' time in the Big Easy.

I'm sure the Saints brain trust will sit Brees down at some point,if he hasn't made the decision to let go and tell him "Drew,we love you and we've already commissioned the statue to put outside the Superdome.But unless you want to end up like Johnny Unitas or Joe Namath,riding the bench in your last season, it's time to ride off into the sunset".

I agree, the best pass of the game (for New Orleans) was thrown by J.Winston. I don’t know if Brees could throw that one. Right now. His family has to be asking him to stop. He’s a warrior but his body has taken a lot. He’s been on a good team that just can’t get over the hump. Even the call vs the Rams. The Saints are supposed to be clearly leading at home at that point in the game. He gives his best but I don’t know if that’s good enough at this point.
