NFL’s first-round divisional playoff games are set for next weekend after the wild card weekend has officially wrapped.
The Patriots will host the super red hot Kansas City Chiefs who are currently on an 11 game winning streak.
The Chiefs defeated the Texans 30-0 on Saturday, a dominate performance.
The Chiefs play at New England on Saturday at 4:35 pm EST on CBS.
The Steelers defeated the Bengals in a surprise ending that saw the Steelers kick a game-winning field goal to advance to play in Denver. The Bengals meltdown on the Steelers final drive was of epic proportions. Vontaze Burfict hit Brown on a nasty play that left Brown limp on the ground with a concussion. The flag was thrown and Pacman Jones decided to go at the refs and push one, adding 15 more yards to the play. That set up the easy field goal and it’s over. The Bengals players were out of control.
Steelers will play in Denver Sunday at 4:40 pm EST on CBS.
The Seahawks beat the Vikings 10-9, in a defensive showdown in -9 degree weather. Too cold to do much but play defense, still the Vikings marched up the field for a game-winning field goal, but the kicker Blair Walsh missed wide left and game over. Seahawks move on to the Carolina Panthers.
The Seahawks will play Carolina on Sunday at 1:05 EST on Fox.
The Packers defeated the Redskins, a game I found most surprising. The Packers practically limped into the postseason while the Redskins came in as hot as any team in the NFL, but this is the postseason and the regular season doesn’t matter anymore. The Packers dominated the Redskins in the 2nd half to win, 35-18. They move on to the Cardinals.
The Packers play in Arizona on Saturday at 8:15 pm EST on NBC.
