Bengals at Titans
The Titans had a bye last week after ending the season on a three-game winning streak. The Bengals won for the fourth time in five games last weekend when they beat the Las Vegas Raiders 26-19.
The Titans are likely to get top running back Derrick Henry back after he missed the last nine games of the regular season with a broken foot. He was the NFL Offensive Player of the Year in 2021.
The Bengals, though, have emerged as one of the most dangerous offenses in the league and quarterback Joe Burrow will help negate Henry’s return.
Pick: Bengals +3.5

49ers at Packers
The Packers ended the regular season with a loss to the Detroit Lions in a meaningless game. The San Francisco 49ers downed the Dallas Cowboys last week 23-17 for their third straight victory and fifth in six games.
On paper, the Packers appear to be the better team with the pass-catch combination of Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams along with a strong pass rush. However, the 49ers have been playing very well for more than a month now.
And don’t discount the trouble has had against San Francisco over the years.
Pick: 49ers +5.5
Rams at Buccaneers
The Rams are winners of six of their last seven games after rolling over the Arizona Cardinals 34-11 last week. Meanwhile, the Buccaneers handled the Philadelphia Eagles 31-15 for their fourth consecutive win and eighth in nine games.
No team has repeated as Super Bowl champions since the New England Patriots in 2004. The Buccaneers, though, look capable of winning it all again, especially with a defense that is again healthy after having injury issues late in the regular season.
The quarterback for the 2004 Patriots? Tom Brady, QB of the 2021 Bucs.
Pick: Buccaneers -3
Bills at Chiefs
In a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship Game, which the Chiefs won, the Bills come in on a five-game winning streak following its 47-17 dismantling of the New England Patriots last week. The Chiefs downed the Pittsburgh Steelers 42-21 for their 10th win in 11 games.
This game shapes up as the best matchup as offense led by Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Chiefs counterpart Patrick Mahomes can roll up points in a hurry. Both teams were impressive in their playoff openers.
Look for Buffalo to get its revenge from last January in a shootout and move one step closer to the Super Bowl.
Pick: Bills +1.5
