On Saturday night, Marcus Mariota and the Titans become the latest team to seek an upset in Foxborough. Sunday morning, Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers look to avenge their worst loss of the season.
A familiar face finishes on top, and again we find a star rookie at the bottom. Can Mitchell Trubisky undergo a Jared Goff transformation? Also: the best third-down defense of this era, and the unit that couldn't pressure anyone to force the ball short.

At ESPN Insider, our final fantasy column of the season looks at DFS matchups for the divisional round. Some of our favorite plays include Case Keenum, Dion Lewis, Alshon Jeffery, and Kyle Rudolph. We also like one of Pittsburgh's three stars far more than the other two.

The latest Kansas City playoff loss at home ("The Forward Progress Game") is the worst yet. Also: Sean Payton brings us back to fourth-and-2 memories, and a Nathan Peterman interception ends Buffalo's season.
The Bills and Titans are in the playoffs, which might be enough of an argument itself to not expand the playoffs. But we looked at DVOA since 2002 to see that playoff expansion wouldn't be a good idea.
The playoffs begin with the Chiefs and Alex Smith hosting Marcus Mariota and the Titans. Action continues on Sunday, as either the Bills or Jaguars will get their first playoff win in a long, long time.
