After an exciting Super Wildcard Weekend, the 2022 NFL Playoffs continue with the final 8 teams competing in the Divisional Round. The Cincinnati Bengals (10-7) at Tennesse Titans (12-5) and the San Francisco 49ers (10-7) at Green Bay Packers (13-4) will compete on Saturday’s NFL Playoff doubleheader.
In the early game, the Bengals won the AFC North and will be traveling to Nissan Stadium to take on the AFC’s top-seed and the AFC South champions, the 12-5 Titans. The Bengals are coming off a historic win against the Las Vegas Raiders in the Wildcard round, which saw Cincinnati win their first playoff game since 1991. The Titans will be looking to return to the AFC Championship Game for the first time since 2019. The Titans may have RB Derrick Henry, who has been sidelined with a foot injury, in what is the most important game of the season thus far.
The late game is an NFC affair when the 49ers take on the NFC North champion and the NFC’s top-seed the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. The Niners are coming off an upset against the Cowboys in the Wildcard Round. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will be looking to stick it to San Francisco for not drafting him in 2005. The QB has a career record of 6-3 against his hometown team.

Predicting the Winners
Joe Burrow will pull off the upset of the week by leading the Bengals to their first AFC Championship game since 1988. The Bengals offense has been explosive and Burrow to rookie WR Jamarr Chase will prove to be a problem for the Titans.
The 49ers will complete the day by knocking off the Packers at Lambeau. With the Niners healthy and coming off an impressive win against the Cowboys, their defense should carry them to a victory against Green Bay, only if QB Jimmy Garrappolo doesn’t make any crucial mistakes.
