The NFL Super Wild Card Weekend has passed us by and hopefully, the games will be much better this weekend. There will be teams that will be under immense pressure to win this weekend. Which teams are under pressure to win in the NFL Divisional Round?
Green Bay Packers
This is the team that has the most to lose this weekend. The Green Bay Packers have been in back-to-back NFC Championship Games and lost both of them. If they were to lose in this round, it would be very damaging. Aaron Rodgers has been to a Super Bowl or lets alone won one in the past decade. They have th best roster left in these NFL Playoffs. This is the best defense they have had in years and there is no room for excuses left for this football team.
I know the Tennessee Titans are being doubted big time by the national media, but let’s be real here. They are the number one seed in the AFC and everyone is back healthy. This is the best shot Tennessee has to reach the Super Bowl and win the whole thing. Derrick Henry, Ryan Tannehill, A.J. Brown, and Julio Jones have barely played together this year due to injury, but this offense is lethal when together. The defense is extremely dangerous and three players have recorded at least eight plus sacks throughout the regular season.
Kansas City Chiefs
Patrick Mahomes knows he is under pressure this weekend because if they don’t win, they won’t be in the AFC Championship Game and the new narrative in the AFC will be that Josh Allen is better than him. Mahomes wants to beat the Buffalo Bills so that doesn’t happen. Kansas City has been to the AFC Championship Game for three consecutive years and is looking to make it four. They have also been to the Super Bowl for two consecutive seasons and are looking to make it three consecutive years.
