Itís a shame that NO is the 3 Seed. I think they are probably better than Green Bay but it will be much harder for them to make it to Miami now that they donít have a Bye or home field.

I hope the Eagles and Vikings can win but that is probably not going to happen and the Saints are probably the lock of the weekend.

I think the Bills win.

They have a more complete team and outside of the Raiders game in 2016 the Texans almost never win their wild card game.

They have a 7-1 road record and the only loss in LA when Brees got hurt in week 2.

I hope they don't get to the Super Bowl.

ESPN + has an article where they rank the 12 Playoff QBs based on their performance this year. Only Josh Allen was lower They have Brady #10 and Rogers #11. Didnít realize Aaron Rogers struggled that much this year.
Also, it never occurred to me but this weekend will be Carson Wentzís Playoff debut.

Josh Allen has been playing better than Brady this year and he has more weapons.

Still hilarious that Brady has 6 more playoff wins than the other 11 playoff QBs combined, which when you consider there are likely 3 future HOFers in Brees, Rodgers, and Wilson, makes it all the more remarkable.

Rodgers has been mediocre this year.

Every Wild Card weekend feels the same:

1. There will be one favorite that trounces their opponent, leading to mass bandwagon jumping over the next week. That team will then lose easily in the divisional round. This year, it feels like that team is the Patriots.

2. There will be one wild card upset - I think that will be Philly over Seattle.

3. The early Saturday game will be lackluster, people will generally forget about it by the end of the weekend and next week, everyone will collectively remember that "oh yeah the Texans lost in the wild card round again".

And the epilogue: Once the Bills get pummeled the next week no one even remembers this game was played even though it was so important 8 days earlier.

He definitely hasnít been himself, but he also had a RB that led the NFL in rushing TDs. That suppressed his stats more than would have been typical.

Hoping for a Titans win but won't be surprised if they lose. Aside from the Buffalo-Houston, the other three matchups look pretty intruiging.

I would disagree with your take there. Houston has an explosive offense and a dynamic quarterback. Buffalo has a great defense. I am curious to see how it plays out

Looks like a wild weather game for TN/NE with rain turning into snow.

I hope there is snow.

Last year they made a big deal that Colts vs Chiefs would be a snow game but the field was clean.

I think Saints vs Vikings is the worst game and the other games are more intriguing.

I have to think the Ravens are hoping for chalk....BUF or TEN pose much more of a threat to them than HOU IMO. BUF already played them tough and TEN could batter them on the ground and grind it out. Houston's D is terrible and are solely reliant on Watson being hot (and really needs Fuller to be effective).

BOB will continue to hold onto his job on the back of going 10-6 every year despite having an all-world talent at QB but never performing in the playoffs.

so far good ugly close defense game.
