If Carson Wentz were playing, the Eagles likely go all the way and win the Super Bowl. But the Eagles aren't beating Minnesota with Nick Foles playing quarterback. The Vikings' offensive coaching staff won't make the same mistakes Atlanta's did last week in Philly. Take Minnesota to advance.

I'm not worried about Tom Brady's status. And without a healthy Leonard Fournette, the Jaguars stand zero chance of going into Foxborough and winning. Look for the Pats to run away with this.

It's a terrible matchup for Carolina, as we've seen twice already this season. Get this at less than a touchdown while you can.

LeSean McCoy is far from 100 percent and that's bad news for the Bills. Jacksonville might only need to score 13 to cover this number. Without a healthy McCoy, Buffalo can't move the football. Lay it.

I know it's the first playoff game for Jared Goff and Sean McVay, but I don't care. Goff gets better coaching and play calls than Matt Ryan, who's saddled with Steve Sarkisian, and Goff will outplay the veteran Saturday. Rams cover.
