FSU Alumni In The NFL For 2016: Divisional Round Edition

In a little more than 24 hours, the Houston Texans will take the field at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, in what will in all likelihood be the last game for them in 2016 National Football League season.

The eight remaining teams look to continue their road to the Super Bowl with wins this weekend. That being said, Patriots fans will have more time to worry about the other more competitive divisional round playoff games.

I told you so: Texans over Raiders! Don't let the Giants' passing attack fool you: the Packers' secondary is a major weakness. While Brock Osweiler played well against Oakland, the Patriots playoff experience and advanced preparation time figure to give him as much trouble as they did in September, when he completed less than half his passes and buckled under pressure.

Vic Beasley and the Atlanta pass rush are going to be a real problem for the Seattle offensive line. Atlanta's unsafe passing attack will stress Seattle's most vaunted unit, who is at the most vulnerable they've been in the last six seasons. Atlanta getting Seattle away from their homefield will be huge in this matchup. Also during that timeframe, Seattle has struggled mightily on the road in the playoffs.

Though the Bengals have had disappointing finishes to their 2011-2015 seasons, they still had positive takeaways from each of their five one-and-done postseason exits in the last six years, and at least they made it to the postseason. Watch for Russell Wilson to carry the load this time. In fact, the 33-year-old has thrown four touchdowns in three straight games, including last Sunday's rout of the New York Giants. The thing to keep in mind is that Seattle's defensive backs haven't gotten an interception since Earl Thomas got hurt. Atlanta win 32-29. Houston's going to get skull-dragged beyond any recognition. A win, and Roethlisberger is likely headed back to New England to face the Patriots. In week 3, the Texans were blown out 27-0 to New England, and adding insult to injury, the Patriots had third string QB Jacoby Brissett calling the shots.

Will the Texans, Falcons, Packers and Chiefs be able to avenge this season's earlier defeats? If entering a Sunday-only contest, the Chiefs" defense is a high risk-reward, "contrarian' option.

The Lions and Seahawks had been on paper an exciting prime time match up, but the game didn't live up to its possibility, as the Seahawks easily beat the Lions 26-6.

Steelers at Chiefs (-1.5): This is such a tough draw for Big Red and the Chiefs. But the Falcons run the ball much better at home, and the crowd won't be against them. The long-suffering Chiefs faithful will have to wait another year for that increasingly elusive title. Pittsburgh wins 25-16. What commenced was one of the most entertaining-and controversial-games of the regular season.

GREEN BAY +4.5, over Dallas: Aaron Rodgers plus points? No one is playing better than the Green Bay quarterback who predicted they might run the tables the rest of the way.and he meant all the way. Dallas took control of the game with its 191 rushing yards. That was not true even 3 months ago, but this is a different, better offense now. They have the mental edge with a victory in hand over the Pack, and they have homefield advantage. The Falcons also surprisingly have a plus-11 turnover differential, one of the highest marks in the league. However, this short track might be a benefit, because they weren't around for the early playoff exits that have plagued the Cowboys in recent years. All of this with the looming specter of Tony Romo waiting in the wings in case of the slightest signs of panic from Jerry Jones and the Cowboys faithful. Ryan and Atlanta lost the NFC Championship game against Seattle back in 2012-and lost earlier this season in Seattle-and are using that as motivation to get the job done this weekend.
