Wild Card Weekend certainly lived up to its name, as NFL fans and bettors were spoiled with six exciting first-round playoff games. With the stage set for the divisional round and eight teams remaining, the postseason is as wide open as it’s been in quite some time.
With the Packers and Chiefs receiving byes for attaining the first seed in the NFC and AFC, respectively, Green Bay and Kansas City will be back in action this weekend. The Packers are set to host the Rams, while the Chiefs welcome the Browns to Arrowhead Stadium.
The Rams got here by beating the archrival Seahawks 30-20 in Seattle. The Browns raised eyebrows across the league by toppling the favored Steelers 48-37 for what was Cleveland’s first playoff win since the 1994 season.
Elsewhere on Wild Card Weekend, the Bills edged the Colts 27-24, the Buccaneers beat Washington 31-23, the Ravens took care of business against the Titans in a 20-13 triumph and the Saints knocked the Bears out of the postseason thanks to a 21-9 victory.
