On Sunday, the NFL playoffs continue with two exciting matchups. The Detroit Lions, fresh off their first playoff victory in 32 years, will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The game is set to kick off at 3 p.m. ET. Later in the day, the Buffalo Bills will face off against the reigning champion Kansas City Chiefs at 6:30 p.m. ET.
The matchup between the Lions and the Buccaneers is expected to be a close one. Tampa Bay has been on a hot streak, winning four of their last five games. Quarterback Baker Mayfield has been playing well, and the Buccaneers’ defence has been solid. On the other hand, the Lions have been led by their quarterback Jared Goff, who is considered by many to be one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the league.
In the late game, the Bills will be looking to avenge their recent playoff losses to the Chiefs. Both teams feature top-tier quarterbacks in Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes. However, the Bills are facing some injury concerns in their defensive secondary, which could be exploited by the Chiefs’ offence.
Despite excellent performances in the regular and post-season, the Buccaneers and the Chiefs are laying less than a touchdown in their respective games. The Buccaneers and the Lions have a history of close matchups, and the Bills and the Chiefs have been evenly matched in recent meetings.
Both games are expected to be high-scoring affairs, with ideal conditions in Detroit’s dome and relatively clear weather in Buffalo. With strong offensive play from both teams, the Over in both games is something to consider.
In terms of player props, receivers Amon-Ra St. Brown, Dalton Kincaid, and Mike Evans are expected to have significant impacts on the games. St. Brown, in particular, has been a reliable target for Goff in recent games, and his over in receiving yards and scoring are worth considering.
Ultimately, both games are expected to be closely contested, and fans are in for a thrilling day of football. As both the Lions and Bills look to advance to the next round, it’s anyone’s game.
