Welcome to NFL Divisional Playoff weekend, when the stakes are raised, heroes are made, goats are born and everyone has got some money on the line. Here are 10 fearless predictions beginning with a statement from The Evil Empire.

1. Tom Brady will unleash holy hell on the poor Titans. Hide the women and children, Tennessee fans. TB12 and the rest of The Evil Empire are out for blood in the wake of an explosive report claiming ego-driven dissension among the Patriots power brokers. Let’s be real: Brady, who is 6-0 against Mike Mularkey-coached teams, was going to destroy the Titans anyway. But now the vegetable-loving 40-year-old quarterback is going to make sure everyone knows just how ticked off he really is on Saturday night.

Watch: Le'Veon Bell comes down with ridiculous TD to pull Steelers to within one score

  Watch: Le'Veon Bell comes down with ridiculous TD to pull Steelers to within one score The Pittsburgh Steelers went into halftime down 14 points. Just watch Bell battle for the ball, out-dueling Telvin Smith on the way down to the ground for six points.

Our panel of experts share their bold predictions for the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. I'll give you two predictions . Arkansas center Frank Ragnow not only gets into the first round , but the My second prediction : Josh Rosen will slide out of the top 10 picks, and the Chargers will trade up to

The NFL is down to its elite eight. The Divisional round is arguably the best football weekend of the All of this is why the Falcons ( 10 -6) are the first team in NFL history to be favored over a No. 1 Tom Brady will be laser-focused, Bill Belichick will be trying to score 75 points, and the defense isn’t

2. (Tom Brady’s anger + Bill Belichick’s annoyance) X Robert Kraft’s outrage = 25-point win for the Patriots.

3. The Eagles give a collective middle finger to the oddsmakers who made them three-point underdogs to the Falcons. Philly’s pass rush and rushing attack will be just enough to dethrone the reigning NFC champs. Of course, Nick Foles, who completed fewer than 47 percent of his passes in his two starts after Carson Wentz’s injury, could screw it all up.

4. Case Keenum’s fairytale season comes to a crashing end in his first career playoff start. The journeyman signal caller fails to become the first quarterback without a postseason start to beat a quarterback with at least 10 postseason starts since Tim Tebow toppled Ben Roethlisberger in 2011.

5. Dynamic rookie running back Alvin Kamara, who only had six touches for six yards against the Vikings in Week 1, erupts for more than 150 total yards to help the Saints advance to the conference title game.

Le’Veon Bell says he never wants to leave Pittsburgh

  Le’Veon Bell says he never wants to leave Pittsburgh Le’Veon Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers are destined for another difficult contract negotiation, but the All-Pro running back doesn’t want to play anywhere else. Following the team’s gut-wrenching 45-42 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Bell said “of course” he wants to return, per ESPN’s Katherine Terrell.“I never want to leave this city, but obviously, circumstances and things like that. But I definitely don’t.”Bell and the Steelers couldn’t agree on a long-term contract last offseason, and he ultimately played the 2017 season under the franchise tag.

10 bold predictions for the 2017 NFL draft. Quickly. Three tight ends in Round 1? More QBs in the first two days than ever before? NFL teams scare pretty easily come draft time. Be it off-the-field issues or injuries, any little hiccup in a player’s evaluation can make it much more difficult for a front

6. Jaguars piñata Blake Bortles will implode. (And Jacksonville will be looking for a new quarterback in the offseason.)

7. Ben Roethlisberger won’t throw any interceptions after his five-pick disaster in a blowout loss to the Jags in Week 5. (I’m a little shaky on this one, but what the heck.)

8. Le’Veon Bell will rack up 100 total yards and two touchdowns against the stingy Jaguars defense. Bell will then announce that he will not retire after the season if he does have to play on the measly $14 million franchise tag next season. (How will he ever feed his loved ones?!)

9. The best matchups of the weekend will be Steelers wide receivers Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster vs. Jaguars cornerbacks A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey. Brown and Schuster won’t have eye-popping numbers, but they will make just enough key plays to help Pittsburgh advance.

10. Darrelle Revis will give as much effort sitting on his couch this week as he did during Kansas City’s wild-card collapse. Then again, tweeting total strangers about how he’s going to the Hall of Fame one day does take a lot of energy.

Telvin Smith Calls Out Tom Brady For Fake Praise Of Jags Ahead Of AFC Title Game

And after ESPN tweeted Brady’s comments in a graphic, Jacksonville linebacker Telvin Smith accused the Patriots quarterback of classic media speak.

This weekend presents 4 great games in the 2017 NFL divisional playoff round . The main story this week is that there are a bunch of very talented running backs playing. Le’Veon Bell and Thomas Rawls had a field day during the wild card weekend, both rushing for over 160 yards and a couple touchdowns.

Tom Brady hides right hand while walking into Gillette Stadium .
Tom Brady is going to play in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday barring some catastrophic event leading up to kickoff, but the star quarterback is very clearly doing all he can to keep his injured right hand hidden. Brady arrived at Gillette Stadium about six hours before kickoff on Sunday, and he kept his right hand in his pocket the entire time he was on camera. As Rich Eisen of NFL Network noted, Brady almost always carries a briefcase or some sort of bag in his right hand when he shows up on game day.As Tom Brady arrived for work with hands in his pocket, I leaned upon my investigative journalism training.
