Baltimore Beatdown Game Picks: Divisional Round

Join the BB staff in picking winners for every game in Round 2 of the playoffs!

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The opening round of the NFL playoffs had just about everything: high-scoring games, controversial finishes, controversial officiating, etc. There wasn’t a ton of parity, though, as only one favorited team — the Cowboys — was upset. The five other favorites not only won but cover the spread and four of six games were absolute blowouts.

There’s only eight teams remaining in the field now and this weekend promises to be entertaining. What does the divisional round have in store?
