The Wild Card round did not disappoint despite the kickoff game being a blow-out by the Kansas City Chiefs (better luck next season Texans). So let’s preview this week’s match-ups.

New England Patriots vs Kansas City Chiefs

With Julian Edelman, Sebastian Vollmer and Danny Amendola all expected to return this week with fresh legs; Tom Brady has something to look forward to. However, Brady may find a hard time avoiding Kansas City’s pass rush. Kansas City has extended their streak to 11 straight after a convincing win in Houston.

Key Factor: Jeremy Maclin and Rob Gronkowski level of production will either considerably hurt or help their respective teams.

Pick: Kansas City in OT. 20-17.

Arizona Cardinals vs Green BayPackers

In their last meeting on Dec. 27th, Arizona was able to hold Green Bay to 178 yards; their second lowest of the season but it’s safe to say those aren’t the same Packers who won convincingly against the NFC East Champion Redskins. Although, Arizona is the overwhelming favorite, I smell a legendary game from Aaron Rodgers.

Key Factor: One word. Aaron Rodgers.

Pick: Green Bay 28-27.
