The 2018 NFL Playoffs schedule features two Divisional Round games on Sunday. The first tilt it a matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Jacksonville Jaguars. The winner of today’s game will go on to face the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.
Despite beating the Steelers by a score of 30-9 in Pittsburgh earlier this season, the Jaguars are 7.5 point underdogs in this game. Jacksonville’s defense is undoubtedly very good, but Blake Bortles is undoubtedly very bad.
There are a few ways to think the Eagles’ rooting interest in this game. You could root for whichever team you think is inferior to win so that the Eagles would have a chance to potentially play them in the Super Bowl. The problem with that is the inferior team would probably lose to the Pats. Maybe you’d rather root for the team you feel like that can knock off the Pats.
