Lorenzo’s Locks: Best bets for Saturday’s NFL divisional games

SportsPulse: Don’t expect the Rams to get pummeled by the Packers and expect a classic in Buffalo. Lorenzo gives his locks for NFL’s divisional games on Saturday.

USA TODAY

The NFL season is down to its final seven games.

But as good as the quartet of divisional-round playoff matchups looks, the crown jewel of the weekend – maybe of the entire 2020 postseason – has to be Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers clashing with Drew Brees’ New Orleans Saints for the third time in little more than four months.

Conventional wisdom claims it’s extremely difficult to beat a team three times in one season. But Brees and Co. may have to do just that in order to extend the career of the NFL’s all-time leading passer.
