Top Championship Round NFL expert picks
After thoroughly examining the two conference championship games, Hammer loves the game between the Chiefs and Bills to go under the total of 54.5. Hammer is expecting a game similar to the one these teams played on Oct. 19, when Kansas City beat Buffalo 26-17. In that contest, the Chiefs rushed for 245 yards and limited the Bills to just 206 total yards.
In addition, these teams have fallen shy of 54.5 combined points more often than not this season. In fact, just six of Kansas City's 17 games and eight of Buffalo's 18 games have reached 55 points. None of the teams' playoff games has reached that total.
