Watt coming back is an incredible story and his sack, in hindsight, ended upchanging the game, but listening to Tessitore and that absolute moron Booger bang on about him, you'd have thought he was putting in the single greatest defensive performance of all time


It'ds hard to believe these two but especially Booger get paid to commentate. So many times they say stuff that is clearly the oppositie of what has happened before their eyes. Utterly clueless.

That's the only negative note on a great weekend of games. Playoffs are just that cut above the regular season. Hard to see past the rested home teams next weekend - I think the Packers will be delighted with not having to face the Saints.

Hard to believe Packers finished the season with a 13-3 record. Personally think their record is more a reflection of their opponents than their own strength. They were blown away by the 49ers and Ravens in the regular season and only beat the chiefs at the start of the season with a late touchdown when Matt Moore was the Chief's QB.

Wentz leaving the game cost the Eagles any chance of winning the game. Can't believe Clowney wasn't flagged and/or ejected. Dangerous cheap shot, and not the 1st time time he's gone in late like that on a QB.

Based on form it's hard to see past AFC championship game between Ravens & Chiefs, which should be a cracker.

49ers with home stadium advantage should win out the NFC

Packers have been very inconsistent on offense this year, and Rodgers in particular. Mind you they have a D and a run game this year that they havenít had in the past few years so Rodgers doesent have to drag they team the way he has had to but if he gets hot they could beat anyone.

Packers never played the Ravens. They also beat the Vikings home and away, the vikings didn't look too shabby last night. The packers have been far from spectacular but they are winning which is all that matters. Can't see them winning in San Francisco right enough

Sorry you're right. It was preseason Ravens beat the Packers. Packers to reliant on a Adams at WR and their defence is very inconsistent.
Dalvin Cook missed the last game v the Packers and without him Vikings have to rely on Kirk Cousins, which didn't work out to well previously. Fair play to Cousins last night, didn't think he had it in him. 49ers defence is alot stronger than the saints though so could be a long night for Cousins

It should be a 49ers victory. The vikings have suffered losses in the defensive backfield, but you never know the Vikings have nothing to lose.

9ers D looked like it benefited from the rest.

Titans beating the Ravens is incredible. Henry is unstoppable right now

The Texans are 21-0 up on the Chiefs early in the game in what is beginning to look like an upset in Arrowhead.

A crazy game. Texans out to a 24-0 lead and in no time at all after that it is 24-21. The Chiefs have all the momentum now.

The Chiefs win out 51-31 after trailing 24-0 after about one quarter. They face the Titans in the AFC championship game.

Incredible game. Mahomes is great to watch.

As an aside I watched the 49ers game highlights on Sky yesterday on their "Highlights" show. Absolute rubbish. They showed the Samuel "fumble" but then cut away and never showed it being overturned and they never showed the Sherman interception. Both crucial moments in the game. Not sure who they had editing it but it was hard watching.
