The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up more than $7,500 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters the divisional round of the 2021 NFL playoffs on an incredible 137-97 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. Amazingly, it hasn't missed a top-rated pick since Week 14 of the regular season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is WAY UP!

The model knows the Bucs are banged up, but Brady has been able to keep winning. He threw for 271 yards and two TDs last week, with wide receiver Mike Evans catching nine balls for 117 yards and a score. Backup running backs Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Giovani Bernard combined for 145 total yards and nine players caught at least one pass. The Bucs also forced three turnovers and held the NFL's top rushing team to 95 yards on the ground as they took a 31-0 lead into the fourth quarter.       

The model also has considered the Rams' impressive performance last Monday, when they held Arizona to 183 yards, had two takeaways and scored a defensive TD. Aaron Donald, Von Miller and the rest of the defense harassed Kyler Murray all night, and Brady was sacked four times behind his banged-up offensive line last Sunday. L.A. also saw promise in Cam Akers' return, as he had 55 rushing yards and a 40-yard reception.
