The first round of the playoffs is often a confusing, wonderful mess, and this Wild Card weekend did not disappoint. The Falcons upset the Rams, the Titans hugely upset the Chiefs, the Saints held on despite a spirited Carolina comeback, and the Jaguars beat the Bills. I guess that last one wasn’t all that surprising.
Now that the field is a little more stable and we have the top seeds playing, though, I’m curious to see where you all have things finishing up. Are the Falcons primed for a revenge run that sees them win a championship? Will the Vikings play for the NFC against, I dunno, the Jaguars? Will the Saints win? Actually, please don’t predict that last one. I’m grossed out now.
In the interest of not coloring the debate, I’m going to keep my opinions to myself, though we’ll like do a round of staff predictions later this week. Let’s hear your thoughts.
