As good as the wild-card round was around the NFL, the divisional playoffs this coming weekend are expected to be even better. Given what we saw last weekend, that’s hard to believe.

Even then, all four games offer a tremendous amount of intrigue. Over in the AFC, Indianapolis heads into Kansas City to take on the No. 1 seed Chiefs having won 10 of its past 11 games. Meanwhile, Philip Rivers will look for a career-defining win against Tom Brady and the Patriots in New England.

The NFC doesn’t lack storylines, either. We’re intrigued to see what Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys can do in Los Angeles against a quarterback in Jared Goff who must prove naysayers wrong. And in New Orleans, the defending champion Eagles will look to continue riding the magic that is Nick Foles.

These are among the top storylines for the NFL Divisional Playoffs.
