NFL Story Lines – Division Round

Josh Weishapl, Sports Writer

 

 

  • Green Bay Packers v.s. Los Angeles Rams: Aaron Rodgers showed up huge against the #1 ranked defense of the Rams. Rodgers threw for just under 300 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions, and completed over 60% of his passing attempts. Green Bay defeats Los Angeles, 32-18.

 

  • Buffalo Bills v.s. Baltimore Ravens: Ravens QB Lamar Jackson just can’t seem to win the big games as he passed for a woeful 162 yards and one interception. The Bills defense stood tall for yet another game, allowing only 3 points through the entire matchup. Bills win, 17-3.

 

  • Kansas City Chiefs v.s. Cleveland Browns: The Browns postseason comes to an end as Chief’s backup QB, Chad Henne, finishes the job after the starter, Patrick Mahomes, went down with an apparent head injury. Henne came in early in the 4th quarter and ended the game with the win after completing 6 out of 8 passes for 66 yards. Kansas City moves on after winning 22-17.

 

  • New Orleans Saints v.s. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: The probably last showdown between Brees and Brady was nothing short of fantastic. However, Tampa Bay had the upper hand, as QB Tom Brady led a hungry offense that was just too much for the Saint’s defense. In probably Drew Brees’ last game, Brady comes out on top. Buccaneers top the Saints, 30-20.
