The Eagles finished as the best team in the league but are underdogs against the Falcons without their start quarterback Carson Wentz. Against a Tennessee defense that allowed the fifth-most schedule-adjusted fantasy points (aFPA) to tight ends-and a 4-66-1 stat line to Travis Kelce last week in less than one half of play-Gronk has a good chance to join John Stallworth and former Patriot David Givens as the only players in National Football League history with a touchdown catch in six consecutive postseason games. Tennessee (10-7), who have not won in New England since 1993, advanced to Saturday's game with a 22-21 wildcard victory over the AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs.
As for the other side of the ball, I expect Tom Brady to give us the usual Tom Brady playoff performance.
This might be the best game of the weekend and is also a rematch of sorts from a regular-season game. And that was with Steelers' inside linebacker Ryan Shazier in the lineup. Picking against the spread with a team on the road means one of two things.

The Steelers reportedly have Antonio Brown back.THIS IS HUGE! Don't sleep on Matt Ryan and his bunch. They held a potent Los Angeles offense to just two field goals and a touchdown, and the special teams also forced two fumbles on a kick returns.
The Eagles take on the Falcons this Saturday (Jan. 13).
New England will be rested and probably annoyed by the widely disputed report of turmoil within the organisation. The Jaguars defense has been incredible all year, but Blake Bortles is their quarterback and is the worst quarterback in the playoffs, if not one of the worst in the entire league. Foles is a solid backup, but so far he has had trouble integrating himself into the offense that was so successful with Wentz. Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald dominated their offensive line as expected, but they made winning plays. If the Eagles can not generate some offense against the Falcons, it might be too much to ask for Philadelphia's fourth-ranked defense to keep Atlanta from scoring. I don't buy that and even if it were true Julio Jones anyone??? The Steelers offense is too loaded, as well, so I think Pittsburgh will win. The Saints are coming off a 31-26 win over the Panthers at home, in which quarterback Drew Brees threw for a phenomenal 376 yards and notched two touchdowns. Tomlin's Pittsburgh Steelers will play at home, along with Belichick's Patriots, but Payton has to take the New Orleans Saints north to face the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium - the site of Super Bowl LII. However, the Vikings stand in the way, and won't be an easy task, especially in Minnesota. The Jaguars defense is bound to make some game changing plays, but it will not be enough. Despite Case Keenum's success this year, I still don't know if I trust him to get it done on the big stage. Despite the injuries to their own key players, such as starting quarterback, Sam Bradford, and rookie starting running back, Dalvin Cook, the team weathered through the adversity, shaking off setbacks that could have derailed a lesser team, with players like quarterback Case Keenum and running backs Jerick McKinnon & Latavius Murray stepping up to play.
