I had 3 of 4 in my pool. Didn't have the Titans beating the Chiefs. In this round I have the favorites - New England and Pittsburg which will set up a very exciting AFC championship game..

Went 2-2 overall last week. Taking the Steelers and Pats this weekend. I'd love to see Jacksonville and especially Tennessee go in and take out the big boys, but I just don't see that happening. The Jaguars seem to have Pittsburgh's number though.

I'm taking the Patriots and the Steelers. However, it would be wonderful if one or both of them lost.

Patriots -13 1/2 and Jags +8; all that matters with these picks are whether a team covers or not.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and predict the game outcomes here--

**Patriots vs Titans

Mariota, Henry and the defense have to play 110%, and they have to make Brady turn the ball over. They have to limit Brady's time on the field too. The one key to Patriots winning is Gronkowski--Titans have to find a way to contain him.

Challenge of all challenges for the Titans, but they are not unbeatable, and my guess says the Patriots get surprised this weekend and stumble in a close one, 26-24. Titans advance in a shocker.

**Jaguars vs Steelers

Steelers are red hot right now, having won 9 of 10 games. Although the Jags beat them this season, Steelers figure out a way to win and advance to play the Titans.

Steelers win 28-20.

That would be a beautiful thing!

Pittsburgh has not been red hot, they've been good but not red hot. They struggled against the Colts, Packers, Ravens, Bengals and of course lost to the Patriots at home. A red hot team would have easily beaten inferior competition.

I want the Pats and Steelers to both lose, but I just don't see it happening. I'm picking the Pats and Steelers to win, sadly.

I put exactly zero stock into the close games the Steelers have played. I recall the 2015 Broncos being in a lot of close games too and people wrote them off in the playoffs. Of course we all know how that turned out. I do think the Jags have a shot in this one because a defense that good always gives you a chance. But Bortles is going to have to play a lot better than he did last week!
