Wild Card Match Ups, Dates, Times & Odds.
Saturday, January 14th
Seahawks @ 49ers, 2:30 PM MST (FOX)
In an NFC West matchup, Seattle visits Santa Clara to play San Francisco and their powerful defense. The Niners won both games during the regular season. In Week 2 Niners won by a score of 27-7 and followed that with a victory in Week 15 with a final score of 21-13. It will be really interesting to see how San Frans rookie QB Brock Purdy.
Chargers @ Jaguars, 6:15 PM (NBC)
In my non-expertise opinion, this will be one of the closest matchups this weekend. The Jaguars won the only meeting during the season in Week 3, beating The Chargers by 28 points in Los Angeles. Trevor Lawrence had a great game, where he threw for 3 TDs. Justin Herbert will need to take care of the football for the Chargers to have a chance.
Sunday, January 15th
Dolphins @ Bills, 11:00 AM (CBS)
In an AFC East matchup, Miami will visit the Bills Mafia in what is going to be a cold afternoon in Buffalo. The forecast predicts 30 degrees at kickoff. These two teams split their regular season meetings, with both teams winning at home. The big question here revolves around who will be starting at quarterback for the Dolphins. Tua Tagovailoa is still under the concussion protocols. We don't know if he's going to be cleared for Sunday's game.
Giants @ Vikings, 2:30 PM (FOX)
The G-men will visit U.S. Bank Stadium to take on Minnesota. This will be the Viking's first home playoff game since 2018, and I think we all remember the Minneapolis Miracle. Minnesota won their regular season match thanks to a last-second 61-yard field goal.
Ravens @ Bengals, 6:15 PM (NBC)
This will be the most interesting game to watch, in my opinion. We are all waiting to see if Lamar Jackson will be cleared to play. Jackson has been sidelined with a knee injury since Week 13. The Ravens did beat Cincinnati 19-17 in Week 5 with a healthy Lamar. Bangels Joe Burrow has been on fire lately, he has thrown for 9 touchdowns in the last 4 games.
Monday, January 16th
Cowboys @ Buccaneers, 6:15 PM (ESPN/ABC)
The Buccaneers come in as an underdog, but Tom Brady is 7-3 in his playoff career as an underdog. Tom Brady is also undefeated against the Cowboys in his career, with a perfect record of 7 wins and no losses. Dallas QB Dak Prescott will need to take care of the football if they want to move on to the DIvisional round. Dak has thrown an INT in 7 consecutive games and is tied for the most INTs in the season. Let me remind you, he missed 5 games with a right thumb injury...
