NFL Playoffs Wild Card Games
The Wildcard Weekend games did not disappoint, that is unless you like close nail biting football games. Every home team came away a winner and it was the most lopsided since 1981.
In Houston the Texans defeated the Oakland Raiders 27-14 in the AFC Wild Card game to advance to the Divisional round.
Oakland’s surprise move to play Conner Cook resulted in the Raiders generating the second fewest yards in the franchise playoff history.
Aaron Rodgers became just the 5th player in NFL history to throw for 350+ yards, 4 touchdowns and no interceptions in a playoff game.
The Pittsburgh Steelers record setting 35th playoff win was highlighted impressive outings by Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell. Brown went for 124 years and two touchdowns, and Bell ran for a franchise record 167 yards and two scores.
Seattle won in typical Seahawks playoff style, it contained wildly unexpected plays and performances. Paul Richardson, who came into the game with 21 catches for 288 yards, caught three balls for 48 yards and perhaps the best touchdown grab we’ve seen all season.
