Can Tom Brady Escape His Struggles-and Other Key NFL Playoff Questions

Getty										Marcus Mariota won his first career playoff game last week

If Philadelphia wins, it will host the New Orleans-Minnesota victor next Sunday.

Two teams have made Super Bowl appearances in their home market but played the game in different stadiums. Those numbers are especially disheartening, because three of the four games this weekend were one possession contests and featured incredible finishes.

With the warmup games out of the way, real post-season football gets underway on Saturday with the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. Below are the probabilities to win each game this weekend.

The second round of the 2018 NFL Playoffs are in the books now and the final four teams are set for the AFC and NFC Championship games.

Despite being the top seed in their conference, the Eagles find themselves as underdogs entering today's game due to the absence of star quarterback Carson Wentz, who suffered a season-ending knee injury previous year. Straight up, AccuScore predicted 12 out of 16 regular-season games correctly for the Eagles this season.

The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Patriot's traditional rivals Pittsburgh 45-42 on Sunday to set up a meeting with New England in MA for the American Football Conference (AFC) championship next Sunday.

Can Tom Brady Escape His Struggles-and Other Key NFL Playoff Questions

Angelique and Kyle were the two who went with the Titans while everyone else chose New England. Even though defensive mastermind Dick LeBeau showed his genius against Kansas City with adjustments at halftime, a Tom Brady-led offense should be too much for Tennessee this time.

The Titans-Patriots victor will play the Jaguars-Steelers victor next Sunday in the AFC title game. When Ben Roethlisberger, LeVeon Bell and Antonio Brown are all healthy, stopping a Pittsburgh team that won 10 out of its last 11 games should be too much for the Jaguars.

This will be Jacksonville's first AFC championship appearance since the 1999 season. After the wild-card win over Carolina, they are slight favorites with a 51-percent win probability, according to AccuScore's simulations.

There is a new challenger standing in the way of the New England Patriots' path to another Super Bowl.
