Mark Drumheller joins Thursday’s Daily Ticket with Sean Brace on Fox Sports The Gambler. It’s NFL playoff time and they uncover every angle leading up to this weekend’s matchups. In his feature play, Sean Payton looks to avenge the Minnesota Miracle. Drumheller discusses where the Saints have the edge, and how the Vikings second-half slide is a big reason for concern. The Vikings defense shouldn’t slow down the Saints. If Zimmer relies too much on Dalvin Cook, the game could get out of hand early. He breaks down a big parlay opportunity he sees as the Bills visit the Texans. JJ Watt’s presence will help Houston corral Josh Allen, but can the Bills pass defense lock down the Texans wideouts with a healthy Will Fuller? Quarterbacks historically struggle on the road and Mark breaks down why the Patriots are being undervalued and the Titans are being overvalued in this weekend’s matchup. Mark closes on some Friday Bowl action featuring two teams ending the season going in separate directions.
