Top storylines for the NFL Divisional Playoffs

The NFL Wild Card Playoffs left a lot to be desired. Sure, the Titans pulling off a tremendous late-game comeback against Kansas City gave us the drama we were looking for. The Saints’ near collapse against Carolina was also noteworthy.

Outside of that, there wasn’t a lot to write home about. The Los Angeles Rams proved they weren’t ready for prime time against Atlanta. Meanwhile, Blake Bortles and Tyrod Taylor stunk it up big time in Jacksonville’s 10-3 win over Buffalo.

Heading into the divisional round of the playoffs, there are a couple games that likely won’t end up being too close. The defending champion Patriots are more than two touchdown favorites over Marcus Mariota and the Titans. Can Tennessee pull off one of the greatest upsets in playoff history?

Meanwhile, the No. 1-seeded Philadelphia Eagles enter their playoff slate as underdogs against the Atlanta Falcons. What does Nick Foles have to offer us? And in Minnesota, can Case Keenum prove his regular season wasn’t a fluke en route to leading the Vikings to a home win against New Orleans?

These are among the top storylines for the NFL Divisional Playoffs this upcoming weekend.
