Predicting the results of Wild Card Weekend
Tennessee Titans @ Kansas City Chiefs
The Titans have struggled on the road whereas the Chiefs boast a 6-2 record at home. Kansas City has won their last three at Arrowhead. Tennessee has lost two of their last three. The Titans offense will have to help their defense out by scoring touchdowns over field goals. In a game where every point matters, the Titans put up just enough to edge out the Chiefs at home.
Atlanta Falcons @ Los Angeles Rams
The Rams sat their starters in week 17, whereas the Falcons had to secure a win to get in. Atlanta is 5-3 on the road. Los Angeles is 4-4 at home, racking up most of their wins on the road with a 7-1 road record. The Falcons top 10 run defense will have their hands full with Todd Gurley. This game will be close, but a rested Gurley will be the deciding factor in a Rams playoff victory.
Buffalo Bills @ Jacksonville Jaguars
Both teams are on polar-ends of the spectrum coming off week 17. Jacksonville wanted to eliminate the Titans on the road, having already secured the 3 seed in the AFC. The Jags defense did their part, but the offense only managed to produce 3 points. The Bills are riding on the high of snapping the longest playoff drought in the league. This will be a battle of the defenses. The Bills top player Lesean McCoy is ailing with injury. Buffalo needs Shady, but how much of an impact he has is a question mark. Jacksonville sends the Bills home in the first round.
Carolina Panthers @ New Orleans Saints
The winner of this game will play in the NFC championship. The heated division rivalry has favored the Saints this season as they look to complete the sweep. Carolina lost by 21 early in the season, but cut the points in half in their second meeting with New Orleans, losing by 10. The Panthers have been hot, but the Saints are the best team in the NFC South. Too much offensive firepower will end Cam Newton and the Panthers bid for the Lombardi trophy.

Hello Sports Fan Entertainment Readers and Followers! My name is Brandon Morales and I - like a lot of you reading this - love sports. Sports consume me. For me, writing about sports is an art. The words used have to paint a picture for the reader. My goal is to put all my sports knowledge to use and SFE is the perfect platform.
Football is my favorite sport. I'm a fan of the Tennessee Titans - since the Houston Oilers days. I also am a fan of the Texas Longhorns - Hook 'Em Horns, baby! I'm also an NBA fan, and am loyal to the Purple and Gold. Lakeshow! I'm new to the Hockey world - as I watched Hockey closely for the first time this past summer. I'm a Nashville Predators fan and look forward to watching them compete for the Stanley Cup this upcoming season.
I also like MMA. Eventually, as SFE grows, I will write a lot about big fights, rising stars, fighters past their prime, etc. But that will be later down the road.
I covered High School Sports during my Junior/Senior year in High School after injuries to both my leg and back prevented me from playing sports. I became a published author for a local newspaper and couldn't believe I was getting paid to write about what I love.
Initially, I had planned to pursue a career in Journalism. I changed my mind, and instead earned my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from New Mexico State University. I began my career working with youth in a Juvenile Corrections facility and utilized my degree to work and help mentor at risk teens. An injury helped me rediscover my passion for writing about sports, and I am grateful to MJ for providing me with the opportunity to share some of my work with sports fans around the world.
Thank you to all readers of SFE and look forward to writing more and more!
