Kansas City Chiefs
There isn’t much to say about the Chiefs other than the fact that they've gone 10-2 since Week 6 of the season. They are a top-five offense in the league putting up 28.2 points per game. Patrick Mahomes also had an MVP-esque season, posting 4,839 passing yards and 37 touchdowns which was the fourth-most in the league. With an AFC Championship appearance in each of the last three seasons, they have more than enough talent to make it back for a fourth time in a row and even come out on top.
The Chiefs are going up against the Pittsburgh Steelers to start their playoff run and manhandled them in Week 16 with a 36-10 final score.
The Tennessee Titans have shocked the AFC and the NFL. After losing Derrick Henry mid-way through the season, they were still able to win the games necessary to lock up the top seed in the AFC and a bye in the opening round.
However, the Titans have already opened up the practice window for Derrick Henry to return to action and they are expecting to have him at the very least in the divisional round. Henry played a significant role in the Titans' offense before he got hurt. He was leading the league in rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, and rushing attempts. With their workhorse back, their AFC Championship odds are well worth the risk.
The Buffalo Bills have been one of the up-and-coming teams in the league recently and are finally scratching the surface of their full potential. They have gained valuable playoff experience in three of the last four seasons. Their offense also finished in the top-3 as they averaged 28.4 ppg this season.
This comes as Josh Allen finished in the top-10 for passing yards (4,407), and passing touchdowns (36). His top receiver, Stefon Diggs, also finished in the top-10 in receptions (103), receiving yards (1,125), and touchdowns (10).
They have an opening-round matchup with the New England Patriots and if victorious, it could speak volumes as to what they can do against the rest of the league.
The Cincinnati Bengals have been one of the biggest surprises in the NFL. After finishing with a 4-11-1 record last season, they have completely turned things around going 10-7 and winning three of their final four games of the season.
Also, in the last two games that Joe Burrow started this season, he made a case for his MVP odds as well, posting 535 yards in Week 16 and 446 yards in Week 17. He also went for four touchdowns in each game. With Burrow having the hot hand right now, he could look to carry that into the playoffs. Luckily, they have a date with the lowly Las Vegas Raiders in the Wild Card round who are still putting pieces together from the numerous changes their offense saw during the season.
