One of the Best Sports weekends of the year is upon us as the NFL Playoffs being with Wildcard Weekend.
This will be focused on the AFC, where the Chiefs are the number one see in the AFC, and earned the all-important bye.
However, this year is a touch different.
If the Chiefs and Bills match up in the AFC Championship game, it will be held in Atlanta as this was the NFL’s solution to the Bills having played one less game.
Let’s start with the Saturday night game, where we have two of the elite young QB’s in the sport facing off.
The Los Angeles Chargers with Justin Herbert are heading to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars and their star Trevor Lawrence. Last season the Jaguars earned the number one pick in the draft, and this year they are hosting a playoff game.
This is due to the emergence of Lawrence. He has become one of the best players in the NFL in the last 8 weeks, and they are looking to take the next step, despite already exceeding expectations. The Chargers and Herbert have long been considered a team loaded with talent, and this year they are finally showing what could be.
They have talent on defense and when healthy on offense they are loaded.
Sunday features two showdowns. Starting with the Dolphins visiting the Bills. These division opponents will be meeting for the third time this year. Unfortunately for Miami, Tua Tagovailoa will not be suiting up for them. The Dolphins are turning to Skylar Thompson again, and that spells trouble for the Phins.
Josh Allen and Buffalo are as talented as anyone in the NFL. They have elite players all over the field, but the difference in the two QBs is what is going to make this game a disaster. The Dolphins are going to be in a world of hurt due to their injuries. The Bills have a team of destiny vibe.
There is a chance that they will be joined by Damar Hamlin before the game as well, as he was released from the hospital and is doing well.
Lastly, the Ravens are heading for a week 18 rematch with the Bengals.
Last week the Lamar Jackson-less Ravens were thumped by the Bengals. As the week goes on, it seems more likely that Lamar will not be playing this game as well. If the Ravens don’t have backup Tyler Huntley ready to go, this one is going to get ugly fast as well, as third-stringer Anthony Brown doesn’t look the part. The Bengals have one of the best offenses in the league, but their line is starting to struggle again.
No one is better with pressure in their face than Joe Burrow though.
