    I want to play the Chiefs at home. I think the Chiefs would be the easiest to beat, but neither team should be taken lightly. Baltimore is the 3rd highest scoring team this year and KC is 15th. Jackson has only has only thrown 7 interceptions this year and Mahomes has thrown 14. I'd also enjoy beating Kansas City so we didn't have to see Taylor Swift anymore in the playoffs. :p

    Exactly. I feel like we're playing with house money and honestly, as long as CJ is at center we have a chance to beat anyone.

    We got a generational qb. Really doesn’t matter. Feel confident every game

    and of course the AFC South gets their designated spot, the early Saturday game

    forecast is 19F in KC and 29F in Baltimore

    Doesn’t matter. They’ll be heavy dogs in both. Just hope to make it competitive and maybe a shot to win if possible

    I'll say the Chiefs because the Ravens defense seems to be more disruptive and better at pressuring the QB. CJ will take a lot of hits. Also, the Chiefs receivers aren't that good and the Texans secondary is less likely to be dominated. Zay Flowers scares the living daylights out of me as does Lamar's legs on 3rd down. The Chiefs defense is good but the Ravens LBs are on a completely different level.

    On the other hand, the Ravens have basically had two weeks off and could be out of sorts. If Mahomes doesn't play like a chicken with its head cut off because his receivers drop a few passes, he is more likely to surgically dismember the Texans secondary than Lamar. But this season, he's been prone to take some poor risks out of desperation.

    Either way, it's gonna be difficult to win. CJ will feel the heat of a legit pass rush. The opponent isn't going to gift the Texans two pick-6s in the 3rd quarter and turn most of the 2nd half into a prolonged celebration.

    I feel like give us the Ravens. They are the best team, the best defense, mvp Lamar.. but it’s hard to beat someone twice in this league. They saw an early CJ. We saw them.. maybe we can pull it off? Also, I just want the bills and chiefs to beat each other up. Both of them scare me..

    Patrick Mahomes walks on water come January, Lamar Jackson drowns.

    Give me Baltimore.

    House money but I'd take Chiefs since Joe Montana messed up my weekend years ago as a Chief. It be nice to return the favor to KC.

    My favorite weekend of the year, Texans win a play-off game and Cowgirls get Packered in Jerry World. SUCK IT ARLINGTON!

    To be honest, I would rather play the Chiefs because I want to see TSwift :D At this point I think we're playing with house money, I am so proud of this team. I will be beyond happy no matter what happens Saturday, I am going to soak it all in, no matter the results.

    PS - screw you Watson, this is what a real franchise QB looks like

    I never “want” to face #15 at his crib. Maybe on the road. Maybe….

    That’s like saying I’d rather play Jordan.

    I'd rather play KC if the refs don't give Mahomes all those ridiculous calls. They just aren't that good to me this season. Rice is their best WR and Stingley can shut him down. Travis Swift has slowed down a lot. That Baltimore defense is scary and obviously we'll need CJ to take as few hits as possible.

    Only downside to the Chiefs is Brittany and Jackson Mahomes on the TV every 10 seconds. Two of the most unlikable people ever. I can deal with Taylor Swift since my daughter likes her and she seems like a genuinely good person.

    I voted Ravens, best team left, slightly warmer stadium, they have been sitting, and the old saying, "it is hard to beat the same team twice."
