2017 NFL Playoffs Divisional Round 1/13 and 1/14

Prince will get you revved up for the next round.

Lets hope the Jags, Vikings, Eagles, and Titans win.

That NFC bracket is wrong. Saints play Minnesota. Falcons at Philly.

I just want an upset on the AFC side, one or both games. I don’t care who advances in the NFC games.

I'd love to see the Steelers in the SB, but I do get why people would rather see the Steelers and Patriots getting bumped out just to change things up. However, I don't know if it's much better to see very mediocre teams like the Jags or Titans make it.

In any case, the Patriots will make another SB appearance.

Vikings activate QB Sam Bradford.

Is he No. 2 or No. 3 QB?

Is Bridgewater still on the active roster.

All three of their QB's are free agents next season.

If the Jags were to make it to the SB wouldn't that prove they are no longer mediocre? That defense is one of the best, if not THE best this year.

If they win at PIT in the playoffs, it would prove it. I don't think they are mediocre. They just suck on offense. I know mediocre as a Skins fan. The Jags have won more playoff games in this century than the Skins have.

Regardless, they should have a new QB next year. If they had a mediocre QB this year, they'd stand a great chance of winning it all.

Well with football it comes down to a single game where anything can happen.
The Jags only won 4 games against .500 or better teams.

They were horrible last week and won, and that could happen this week as well. They'll get credit for making the SB, but that doesn't mean they're a great team.

There are options between great and mediocre.

They technically have four QBs on the roster at the moment, Kyle Sloter being sometimes 2nd mostly third string most of the year. No word yet on who will be active tomorrow, but if itís three of those four, itíll be a first for the year. Iíd do the big three if I was Zimmer. If Keenum goes down, Iím not sure I trust Bridgewater yet.

Ok, it doesn't make them good either. As it stands, I think if the Jags make the SB - they'll still only be considered mediocre.

Ajayi coughs it up on his first carry. The Eagles need to put Clement in.... my fantasy playoff team would appreciate it.

Is it me or did ATL really kick that quick (25 left on the play clock)? With the wind at their back. If so, smart.

Four of my favorite teams play today. And three more tomorrow.

Lots of rooting interest for Bengal Nation (all six of us).

The Eagles are moving the ball - as long as the Falcons keep getting called for PI.

That drive had it all. Philly punches it in 4th. I would have kicked.

Then Philly botches the PAT.

They need to keep ATL out of FG range with the wind against ATL.

Why the fuck did Ryan wait to pass that? Buddy was wide open and he was staring right at him the whole time.

Watching this game, it's no wonder people are tuning out the NFL. It's a shitshow. That personal foul call in the end zone was absolute bullshit.
