Tampa Bay, New York Jets, Cincinnati, Denver and Miami show their head coaches the door.

Saturday's Wild Card wins go to the Colts and the Cowboys (the latter by a narrow margin). We'll find out who else wins the Wild Card games tomorrow. Allen Hurns may be questionable though for next week (or if he returns if at all for a future game) as he suffered a serious ankle injury so bad enough that FOX didn't want to look at the replay. He is undergoing surgery at this time.

Questionable for next week??  Allen Hurns will be lucky if he plays football again...EVER.  That injury was the kind then ends careers.

Well one of the sources now says August in time for the next football season but only if there are no complications. Doesn't look like it...

Well THAT is good news.  That injury looked horrible.  Thankfully it was one that is recoverable.

Well a little bit of a scare but the Chargers hang on and will face the Patriots next weekend. Eagles and Bears are up next.

Bears get sent home with :05 left and a doink FG attempt. Philly goes to New Orleans while Dallas goes to La-La Land to face the Rams.

And the Eagles icing the Bears kicker paid off as the first kick was initially good. The crowd was stunned tonight.

It appears Philadelphia did tip the final kick, fatally altering its trajectory.  Meanwhile, one has to wonder:  given this was almost exactly 30 years after the Fog Bowl, do you suppose the miss was Buddy Ryan's revenge from beyond for that game...?

Visiting teams went 3-1 during Wild Card weekend. All home teams are favored for the Divisional games. Take that for what it's worth.

Considering all the home teams are literally the teams that had a first round BYE, it's not really all that surprising at all.

One of the road teams is playing a team with a worse record. Take that for what its worth.

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.
