NFL Wildcard round

This weekend we saw the first round of the playoffs in the NFL. Most games were clearly one sided with teams like the Bills beating the Patriots 47-17. Quarterback Josh Allen dominating going 21/25 passing, 308 yards in the air and 5 touchdown. He also had an additional 66 yards scrambling making a great playoff appearance for his career. The next game was The Buccaneers vs The Eagles where Tom Brady and The Bucs’ proved they were not match for the Eagles winning 15-31. Wide receiver for The Buccaneers, Mike Evans, had field day with over 100 yards receiving and a touchdown to top it off. After a hard fought first quarter by The Steelers, the Chiefs proved there in the front running for Super Bowl contenders beating the Steelers 42-21. Patrick Mahomes ripped apart the Steelers secondary going for over 400 yards in the air and five touchdowns with tight end Travis Kelce also getting in on the action getting 108 yards receiving with a touchdown both receiving and passing.

Although they were considered heavy favorites to be Super Bowl contenders Kyler Murray and the Cardinals were beat by the Rams. The Cardinals were simply outmatched by the Rams in the trenches with players such as Aaron Donald and Von Miller dominating up front. The last two games were both hard fought and came down to the last seconds in both. Joe Burrow AKA Joe Shiesty in his first playoff game beat Derek Carr and the Raiders going 24/34 with two touchdowns and the Bengals defense holding off for one last play to clinch another game. This games is somewhat controversial over the late whistle blown on a touchdown pass by Burrow. This blown whistle caused raiders defenders to let up and allow a touchdown. Similar to the Bengals vs Raiders game the 49ers vs Cowboys game came down to the last drive where Dak and crew were driving down the field and after a QB draw up the middle a referee was seen running through the line causing Dak to pause and making the clock run out ending the game in a controversial matter. The referees from both of these games will not be allowed to call a game for rest of the playoffs after commissioner Roger Goodell pulled them out.
