  • LA Rams at Seattle Seahawks: Playoff Russel Wilson did not show up; Rams complete the upset over the Seahawks, 30-20.
  • Washington Football Team v.s. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Washington’s Emergency Quarterback, Taylor Heinike, comes up just short of a Cinderella story; Tampa Bay wins 31-23.
  • Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills: Kicking woes hurt the Colts in the 2nd quarter with a missed chip shot field goal, they would go on to lose by 3 points, Bills secure a spot with the 27-24 win.
  • Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers: Even though they almost threw away their 25 point lead in the second half, Browns need to be looked at as legit contenders–Chief fans should be wary, Cleveland wins 48-37
  • Tennesee Titans vs. Baltimore Ravens: 20-21 rushing king, Derrick Henry, was shut down by the Ravens defense, running for an abysmal 40 yards, Ravens pull an upset on the Titans by a score of 20-13
  • New Orleans Saints vs. Chicago Bears: the Saint’s defense was stout, keeping the Bear’s offense under 250 total yards. The defense wasn’t the only bright spot for the Saints as running back Alvin Kamara kept his wheels turning into the postseason as he picked up 99 yards and a touchdown in the Saints 21-9 win.
