Afc, the titans arrive and the Chiefs-Bills super challenge –
Opening Divisional weekend will be the Tennessee Titans, who will begin their playoffs at Nissan Stadium in Nashville (after the goodbye of the first round thanks to the primacy of the conference) that hosts the Cincinnati Bengals. Coach Mike Vrabel’s Titans finished the regular season with twelve wins and five losses and weathered the long absence of running back phenomenon Derrick Henry, now set to return from a fractured metatarsal in his right foot that required surgery and steel. Plaque: Quarterback Ryan Tannehill will find his favorite weapon – with a stamp to be verified – to face the enthusiasm of the Bengals.
Cincinnati at the Wild Card beat the Las Vegas Raiders 26-19, finding their first playoff success in thirty-one years and snapping one of the longest losing streaks in the entire NFL. Now there’s another chip to break, with the Bengals losing seven in as many road games in playoff history: We’ll need another big game from the baby combo of Joe Burrow and Ja’marr Chase, 244 yards respectively. throwing and receiving 116 against the Raiders. The other AFC game, scheduled at Arrowhead Stadium between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills, promises to be spectacular and has a decidedly hazy forecast.
The Chiefs defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 42-21 closing the wonderful career of Big Ben Roethlisberger, overcoming an initial emotion (0-7, touchdown by defenseman Tj Watt) with the usual show of Patrick Mahomes -five Td passes- and the great proof of tight end Kelce, 108 receiving yards, a touchdown scored and even a Td pass on a trick play. Impressive matchup of the Bills against the New England Patriots: 27-3 up at the half of the run and 47-17 at the end with quarterback Josh Allen (5 Td pass, 21 completions on 25 for 308 yards) literally unstoppable and ready for the big challenge against Mahomes, the highest-paid player in the NFL.
Nfc: Rodgers, Brady but not only
Even the NFC is not short of great quarterbacks and the Divisionals bring in Aaron Rodgers with his Green Bay Packers, who will host the San Francisco 49ers in frigid Lambeau Field. Packers’ favorites, but watch out for precedents with Rodgers who lost all three games of his career in the playoffs against the 49ers: San Francisco signed the only upset of the previous round, beating the Dallas Cowboys 23-17 as visitor. Huge disappointment for Prescott and his teammates, three quarters knocked down by late reaction: Facing the challenge to the Packers, coach Kyle Shanahan hopes to get back 49ers defensive leader Nick Bosa, who left at halftime against Dallas with a concussion. The other verdict -not surprisingly- of the Wild Cards that everyone always has to face with Tom Brady: his Buccaneers demolished the Philadelphia Eagles (31-15, but the score was 31-0), with the legendary quarterback who at 44 is curiously older. than all the head coaches who are still in contention as his opponents in the NFC. Shanahan and Lafleur -49ers and Packers- are 42 years old and the youngest of all challenges Brady with his Rams: Sean McVay, just 35 years old. Los Angeles’ win over the Arizona Cardinals was much sharper than expected (34-11) and was the first career playoff success for Matthew Stafford, a 33-year-old quarterback who joined the Rams in the summer. after twelve years with the Detroit Lions.. Now Stafford, a native of Tampa, will challenge the Buccaneers in Florida, who will risk being deprived of linemen Wirfs and Jensen.injured vs. Philly: A potentially huge problem against Aaron Donald and Von Miller’s stifling Rams defense that Brady will have to try to remedy with his boundless talent.
