Don’t let Trent Baalke’s alleged burner distract you from the fact that just three games remain in the 2023-24 NFL season.

On Sunday, the No. 3 seed Kansas City Chiefs will play the No. 1 seed Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium at 3:00 p.m. EST. The Ravens are 4-point favorites and the total is set at 44 points, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

Then, the No. 3 seed Detroit Lions will face the No. 1 seed San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium at 6:30 p.m. EST. The 49ers are 7.5-point favorites and the total is set at 51.5.

I’m most looking forward to whether Patrick Mahomes can single-handily will Kansas City to a win over the NFL’s most complete team in Baltimore. Mahomes versus Mike Macdonald plus Lamar Jackson versus Steve Spagnuolo should be a treat. As far as I’m concerned, the National Football Conference doesn't exist, and this AFC matchup is the Super Bowl.

Here are our staff’s Tallysight picks for each game this weekend.
