[BALADO] “The Paying Zone”: Patrick Mahomes and the favorites enter the dance

[PODCAST] «The Paid Zone


What is often the best weekend of the year in the NFL is upon us. After the necessary purge of the first round, it's time for the second round of the playoffs with the big guns arriving in the big tournament. There are only eight teams still in contention for the Vince-Lombardi Trophy. The Paid Zone is ready! And you?

While the Joe Burrows, Josh Allen, Trevor Lawrence, Brock Purdy, Dak Prescott and others were involved in constant battles last weekend, other heavyweights are joining the party. 

On Saturday, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs will be in action against the Jaguars. The Chiefs are seeded favorites in the American conference. In the national association, it is also the entry of the favorites, the Eagles led by Jalen Hurts, against the Giants, Saturday night.
