POSTED IN NFL | no comments

The NFL Wildcard Weekend games are complete and every home team came away a winner and it was the most lopsided since 1981.

The Oakland Raiders were defeated 27-14 by Houston Texans at NRG Stadium. The Texans advance to the Divisional round.

Oakland’s surprise move to play third string QB Conner Cook turned out to be a poor one as it 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.

Jordy Nelson suffered at least two fractured ribs in the Packer’s wild-card win over the Giants. Will Green Bay be forced to head to Dallas without its top wide receiver?

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.

A day after Ben Roethlisberger suffered a foot injury in the final minutes of Sunday’s 30-12 win over the Dolphins, he revealed the extent of the injury. The Steelers star QB is out of the boot and says he’ll be ready to go in the divisional round.

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.

The Divisional Round starts Saturday 14. Come Back for a recap.
