Tom Brady says playoffs are about execution, not experience

Meanwhile, Ryan's counterpart on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field, Foles is 0-1 in the postseason and owns only four starts in the past two seasons as Carson Wentz's backup. Nick Foles will be better than he has been. In this craptastic pool of AFC playoff teams, not so much. This team also is chirping already about playing New England again, which can't sit well with Jacksonville.

"I think it just comes down to how well you play", Brady said.

And in Week 5, the Jacksonville Jaguars defense went into the Steel City and basically blew out the Steelers single-handedly by scoring two touchdowns on five Ben Roethlisberger interceptions - meaning that unit scored more TDs than the offense they were defending. No one's going to be able to do it for you. The Patriots are the only team projected to score at least 30 points this week, and Gronk has one of the best on-paper matchups of the week against a Titans defense that ranks 28th in tight end aFPA.

Minnesota is projected for the second-most points this weekend, but Case Keenum is priced as the QB4, making him 4for4's top quarterback value of the week.

Jacksonville's defense can clearly create a number of problems for Pittsburgh. Drew Brees was fantastic last week with 376 passing yards and two touchdowns. The other was in the Super Bowl a year ago with an offense led by a 32-year-old quarterback in the postseason for the sixth time in his career. It'll be a close game, but I'm giving the edge to the Steelers. In that game, Pittsburgh threw it 55 times, vs. 20 rushes. They are team that has been through some UGLY games this season. Jalen Ramsey has what it takes to limit the damage done by Antonio Brown, who is coming back from injury, and the front seven can slow down Le'Veon Bell. Minnesota was victorious in Week 1, but a lot has changed since then. But I just have a good feeling about this Saints team. I will be honest in admitting that Blake Bortles didn't cost them last game but this time around it could be very different. By almost every metric, the Los Angeles Rams are better than the Atlanta Falcons.

In a season that watched Brees take a backseat to the running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram, Brees was not as heralded in the narrative that went with the Saints. A quarterback like Ben Roethlisberger, who has played in 20 playoff games, the majority of which were in bad weather... orrrrrrrr, Blake Bortles, a Florida guy who went to UCF, has played in Jacksonville, and looked terrible in kinda bad (but not horrible) conditions last week? The Vikings have been stingy against the run (83.6 rushing ypg allowed), and have been no slouch against the pass either thanks to Pro Bowl cornerback Xaiver Rhodes and safety Harrison Smith.

Normally I wouldn't pick against the Vikings at home, but this Saints team is going to go all the way.
