NFL picks: Experts predict Jaguars vs. Chiefs in Divisional Round

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be road underdogs Saturday when they attempt to beat the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Pride.

Kansas City is looking for a fifth straight trip to the AFC Championship, while the Jaguars are hoping to continue a Cinderella season that came after finishing both the 2020 and 2021 seasons with the worst record in the NFL.

Although most expect the Chiefs to get through the Jaguars and move on to a matchup against the Buffalo Bills or Cincinnati Bengals, that opinion isn’t universal. There are a few experts who are predicting an upset is on the way.
