NFL Playoffs 2015-16, Round 2

Round 1
2-2 picking winners, 4-0 against the spread.

Round 2
Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots, Patriots favored by 5. Even given the opponents, the Chiefs’ streak is impressive. However, if the Pats are at full strength they are clearly the better team. I'm guessing rust keeps it close, but Edelman and Vollmer have to be better than the guys they’ve been running out there. Patriots 27-21

Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals, Cardinals favored by 7. The Packers are good, the Cards are excellent or maybe better than that. Cards 31-20.

Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers, Panthers favored by 2.5. Most games between these teams are close wins by Seattle. However, Carolina is better than they’ve been in past years, and Seattle is significantly worse on the road. Panthers 28-21.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Denver Broncos, Broncos favored by 7.5. There is no telling what will happen in this game. Manning could put up a perfect game, or a goose egg. Roethlisberger could dominate, or could throw 3 pick-sixes. However, I don’t see a Denver blowout as likely, so take the points. Broncos 23-20.
