Divisional weekend in the NFL concludes today as four division winners battle for the two remaining spots in next weekend’s Conference Championship Games.

The Jacksonville Jaguars visit the Pittsburgh Steelers in the early afternoon window. This is a rematch of an early season game Jacksonville won in a blowout and a clear contrast of styles. The Jaguars will try to ride their elite defense to a road Playoff victory and shut down the explosive Pittsburgh offense. The Steelers want to turn this game into a track meet. If it comes down to the quarterbacks, Ben Roethlisberger is a better horse to bet on than Blake Bortles.

In the later afternoon window, the Saints visit the Vikings. This is also a rematch. These teams met in Week 1, but the circumstances were very different. Sam Bradford actually started that game for the Vikings. It seems like a very long time ago.
