The NFL is headed into the divisional round of the playoffs. Sadly, the Falcons are not in it and we’re immersing ourselves in a coaching and general manager search, but hundreds of Atlanta fans are still weighing in via our weekly Reacts survey and they are watching other teams in the playoffs. Let’s talk a little about that.
With an unprecedented six-game schedule through Saturday and Sunday, each game saw plenty of big moments. But according to the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, one stood out above the rest. 49 percent of fans said the best moment of the weekend came in the final game when Kareem Hunt plunged into the end zone, giving the Cleveland Browns a 28-0 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first quarer.
Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke diving into the end zone received the second most votes with 24 percent of the vote. That was followed by the Nickelodeon broadcast of the Bears and Saints game with 11 percent.
That broadcast was one of the most talked about things in the NFL through the weekend. It led many to ask what other non-sports channels could make for an entertaining NFL broadcast. When NFL fans were asked what other network would make for a good broadcast, 40 percent picked the Food Network.
That was trailed by 28 percent for BET, 17 percent for HGTV and 15 percent for Bravo.
After seeing the road team win four of the six games, fans expect to see a change in the divisional round. All four home teams were picked by NFL fans to win their game.
