What a great scene in Buffalo (and Miami, where the Bills were actually playing) when Cincinnati knocked off Baltimore to send the Bills to the playoffs. Buffalo gets to stay in the Sunshine State as the Bills take on Jacksonville in the Wild Card. The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has released updated Super Bowl 52 odds, and Buffalo is 100/1 to lift the Lombardi Trophy and 50/1 to win the AFC. New England remains the league favorite at 2/1, followed by Minnesota (+400), Pittsburgh (+450), and New Orleans (+500).

I have served as the drum major of the Atlanta Falcons’ parade all season, so I might as well keep banging that drum. Atlanta’s offense ranks No. 3 in the NFL in yards per play. The Falcons are top-8 in both rushing and passing offense. Atlanta’s pass defense is top-10 in yards per attempt and their red zone defense is No. 5 in allowing red zone scores. They have A LOT of pieces to the puzzle, but haven’t been able to put everything together. Will they make another run to the NFC Championship, or will they flame out in Los Angeles? Jared Goff has played really well this season, but hasn’t been on this stage before. If you can grab Atlanta at 10/1 (or better) for the NFC Championship, you’re asking Atlanta to beat Goff and Nick Foles, then you can lock in a profit. I may be going down with the Falcons’ ship, but I still think they can put it together.
