NFL Wild Card Weekend Scores:
Houston 27 Oakland 14
Seattle 26 Detroit 6
Pittsburgh 30 Miami 12
Green Bay 38 New York 13
Really no surprises in terms of the results. We all expected Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Houston to win. However, I am very shocked that New York got blown out. They had a lot more talent than Green Bay, but Green Bay has Rodgers right now and he seems unstoppable.
I am also surprised the Detroit game wasn’t close. It isn’t as surprising as New York’s game because Seattle has the better team, quarterback and was at home, but it was a playoff game. I thought Detroit is good enough to keep it competitive knowing their season was on the line, but they couldn’t.
Now we move on to Divisional Round. Every single game should be close and exciting. Here are the game times for next Saturday and Sunday.
Divisional Round Schedule:
Saturday, January 14th
Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons, 1:35 PM (PT)
Houston Texans at New England Patriots, 5:15 PM (PT)
Sunday, January 15th
Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs, 10:05 AM (PT)
Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys, 1:40 PM (PT)
