The only thing better than NFL playoff games on a Saturday are NFL playoff games on a Sunday.

Bengals @ Bills – 3:00pm
Spread: Bills -5.5
Moneyline: Bills -250/Bengals +210
Total: O/U 49
Preview & Pick
Bengals vs. Bills is without a doubt the most anticipated matchup of the weekend as the two teams will square off once again just a few weeks after the Damar Hamlin incident shocked the football world. Hamlin is making miraculous strides and it seems like there’s a chance he could be at this game. What a story.
As for the football on the field, these are two of the hottest teams in the sport as the Bengals have won their last nine and the Bills have won their last eight. Cincinnati has taken down the Ravens in each of the last two weeks to get here, and the Bills squeaked by both the Patriots and the Dolphins to allow themselves to host this game at home.
Though the Bengals are banged up on the offensive line, it’s awfully tough for me to pick against Joe Burrow right now. Cincinnati is my Super Bowl pick moving forward, and to do so they have to get through the Bills first. They win a tight one on the road.
Prediction: Bengals 31 – Bills 28
Side: Bengals +5.5
Total: OVER 49
Cowboys @ 49ers – 6:30pm
Spread: 49ers -4
Moneyline: 49ers -205/Cowboys +175
Total: O/U 46.5
Preview & Pick
What is this, the 1990’s? The Cowboys and the 49ers will faceoff on Sunday night for a chance to play in the NFC Championship game, a rematch of the ’94 and ’95 game.
Both of these teams are coming off of massive victories, with Dallas whomping the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the 49ers with a collossal win vs. the Seahawks. They’re both ready to make a statement.
Kyle Shanahan has this Bay Area team buzzing, and not even the Cowboys can stand in the way of it. Brock Purdy continues to defy the odds and brings the 49ers back to their second consecutive NFC title game.
Prediction: 49ers 24 – Cowboys 17
Side: 49ers -4
Total: UNDER 46.5
