First up on Sunday is a Cincinnati Bengals team that won its first playoff game in 31 seasons taking on last year’s AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs, followed by the defensively strong San Francisco 49ers facing the talent-heavy Los Angeles Rams, two potentially thrilling matchups that will determine who moves on to the Big Game.

Cincinnati Bengals (+7) vs Kansas City Chiefs
How to watch: Sunday, 3:00 PM ET, CBS
With a last-minute field goal from rookie placekicker Evan McPherson, the Cincinnati Bengals knocked off the number one AFC seeded Tennessee Titans, 19-16, a game in which QB Joe Burrow was sacked nine times and intercepted once but his receivers (Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, TE C.J. Uzomah) and Joe Mixon’s run game plus shutdown D kept the Bengals in it.
When Patrick Mahomes took the field in the fourth quarter last Sunday night with just thirteen seconds left on the clock, most fans figured the game would end with a Hail Mary pass, but these Chiefs and their receiving playmakers (Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, Byron Pringle) and a healthy Clyde Edwards-Helaire proved HC Andy Reid can game plan an OT win out of anything.
Thanks to their experience, the Chiefs will most likely win this game, but the Bengals have covered the spread in all six of their last matchups, so take them to do that here.
Bengals +7 (-110)
San Francisco 49ers (+3.5) vs Los Angeles Rams
How to watch: Sunday, 6:30 PM ET, FOX
Apparently, the fact that the Niners’ QB Jimmy Garoppolo had never played in brutally cold weather didn’t matter since he and his San Francisco teammates outplayed the Packers for the last-minute snowy win by a Robbie Gould field goal, 13-10, this Niners’ defense with five sacks on the day, a killer pass rush that the LA Rams must consider, that and rookie RB Eli Mitchell.
It took a last-second Matt Gay field goal to put the final nail in the GOAT as the LA Rams beat Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 30-27, and now that QB Matthew Stafford has two scary targets to toss balls at (Cooper Kupp, Odell Beckham Jr.), expect his offense to compliment the shutdown defense they now field, one that Aaron Donald, Von Miller, and Jalen Ramsey rule.
This should be a close ending so take the team that has covered the spread in six of their last seven matchups, HC Kyle Shanahan’s Niners, and the points over these Rams.
Forty-Niners +3.5 (-115)
