The NFL wild-card round is complete, and just eight teams remain in contention for the Super Bowl. The Rams advanced in the wild-card round on Monday night, while the Cardinals were eliminated.
So far, the favorites have had a successful postseason, with the lone division champion losing in the NFL playoffs being the Cowboys in a tight loss to the 49ers on Sunday. Several games were blown out, with the Bills destroying the Patriots, the Buccaneers destroying the Eagles, the Chiefs destroying the Steelers, and the Rams crushing the Cardinals. The Bengals beat the Raiders in the NFL playoffs for the first time since 1991, thanks to a last-second goal-line interception.
All of the remaining teams will be back on the field when the NFL playoffs resume play next Sunday. The Titans and Packers were able to rest and watch the games from home this weekend, but they will now have to defend their home turf, with Tennessee facing Cincinnati and Green Bay facing San Francisco. The Buccaneers were the only team that didn’t know who they were playing on Sunday. They now know they’ll be playing the Rams.
