Despite the Eagles’ home-field advantage, Minnesota would likely be the favorite in this one. The offense is clicking thanks to the two-headed rushing attack of Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon and a stout passing game led by quarterback Case Keenum, who has rejuvenated his career in Minnesota. And the defense has allowed the fewest points in the league.

Pittsburgh has three fantastic offensive weapons in Brown, running back Le’Veon Bell and wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster, and it will be hard for the Titans to contain all of them.

The Saints and Falcons split their season series this year, although New Orleans running back Alvin Kamara missed most of a 20-17 loss to the Falcons after he suffered a concussion. With him a full go two weeks later, the Saints beat the Falcons 23-13.

This would be a rematch of a regular-season matchup that the Steelers won 40-17 at Heinz Field thanks to three touchdowns from wideout Antonio Brown.
