Breaking down this National Football League weekend, playoff predictions Video

Brees-Drew-USNews-Getty-FTR

The prediction here is similar to the Patriots: Pittsburgh has a 75-percent win probability against the Jags, who are in the playoffs for the first time in 10 years. What do we think? When it comes time for the playoffs, Bill Belichick is quite possibly the most risky man in the NFL.

Last weekend's four games were uninspiring, for the most part. None jump out as some kind of tradition-rich series. However, I have the Patriots winning this game 27-20. It allowed a league-low average of 169.9 passing yards per game and held opposing quarterbacks to a league-low 40.1 Total QBR.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan enters Saturday's game with a passer rating of at least 100 in five consecutive postseason games, tied for the second-longest streak in National Football League history.

All season, Sky Sports News' NFL reporter Richard Graves has given his weekly game predictions, going head-to-head against star names from the sporting arena to see who knows their gridiron more.

2002: In the NFC semifinals, the Eagles beat Atlanta 20-6 at old Veterans Stadium. It likely would've sealed the game.

2004: In the NFC Championship Game at Philly's new Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles pulled away with an efficient game from McNabb and strong running from Brian Westbrook. The Steelers have the third-ranked offense, according to ESPN, this season led by veteran Ben Rothlisberger.

Kamara punched it in from two yards out in the fourth quarter last week, but was also lined up in the backfield when fullback Zach Line vultured a 1-yard score in the second quarter.

The case for chalk: The Patriots' coach-quarterback combination and opponent-specific game plans are the best ever, especially in big moments. That was Jacksonville's last playoff win.

It's easy to poke fun at Vikings fans, who cling to a brand of collective fatalism generally reserved for small countries that sit between much bigger ones, but at least they care. Those were the Luv Ya Blue Oilers of Bum Phillips. How this spread is staying below two touchdowns is beyond me, but I'm glad it is. This was Chuck Fairbanks' final game as coach of the Patriots.

Graves' 11-5-1 mark on the season certainly would have been good enough to earn a playoff spot - so he is back, as are some of his fiercest competitors from the year, to take on the Super Bowl Challenge. Quarterback Tom Brady finished the regular-season as the third-most valuable quarterback per ESPN's Total Quarterback Rating and was instrumental in the team scoring a league-leading 2.6 points per drive, almost a point per drive more than the league average (1.8), and the 12th best scoring efficiency since 2002, the year the league expanded to 32 teams. On the ensuing possession, Steve McNair drove the Titans into Patriot territory, but a holding penalty put Tennessee in a hole, and McNair's 4-and-12 pass fell incomplete with 1:45 left. AccuScore has made its 2017 National Football League playoff picks by simulating each divisional-round game 10,000 times to predict the probabilities of reaching the next round on the road to Super Bowl 52. They hosted Minnesota - and were routed 44-10. They are team that has been through some UGLY games this season.

2001: In the NFC semifinals, Daunte Culpepper threw for 302 yards and three touchdowns, two to Randy Moss and one to Cris Carter, as the Vikings rolled 34-16. The Saints were dealt a 29-19 defeat in their last trip to U.S. Bank Stadium, but that was in Week 1 when the Saints still had Adrian Peterson.

And even if he slips a little against New Orleans, Minnesota's defense will be able to pick up the slack. Minnesota never got the ball back. That being said, now that the Saints have found a run game and some kind of defense, this one could get interesting quickly.

Falcons at Eagles: Atlanta 23-10. Marcus Mariota was a one-man band against Kansas City. I doubt even the Jaguars secondary will have the same result with the Steelers offense. Rested and relatively healthy, Pittsburgh's offense will be tough for Blake Bortles & Co.to match.

If the Vikings beat the Saints this Sunday, it doesn't necessarily provide vindication.
