Then there were four. Following an entertaining four-game slate during the NFL Divisional Playoffs only four teams are still alive to win Super Bowl LII.
The weekend was pretty wild. First off, the home dog Philadelphia Eagles used some otherworldly grit and determination to take down last year’s NFC champs, holding the Atlanta Falcons to just 10 points in the game. Then later Saturday night, the New England Patriots shrugged off what’s been an endless stream of unwanted media attention to utterly annihilate the Tennessee Titans.
On Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars did the unthinkable, not only beating the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field but putting up 45 points in the process. The final game of the weekend — one that, on paper appeared to have real promise — was a lopsided blowout between the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints in the first half. Thankfully, the Saints woke up after going down 17-0 and almost did enough to win until the very end when all hell broke loose.
These were the biggest winners and losers from the NFL Divisional Playoffs.
