Teams to Watch in the Historic 2020-21 NFL Playoffs

Teams to Watch in the Historic 2020-21 NFL Playoffs

"All week we were told how good they were and how we snuck into the playoffs", Goff said, adding, "Two weeks ago you saw them smoke cigars and getting all excited about beating us and winning the division".

The Seahawks' struggles on offence are nothing new - Seattle averaged just 22 points and fewer than 300 yards over its last three games - but the wild-card loss will lead to many off-season questions for Pete Carroll and Company, who appeared to have unlocked the best of what this offence had to offer only for it all to end with the group falling flat. Henry had the eighth 2,000-yard rushing season in National Football League history, finishing the regular season with 2,027 yards.

Six-time Super Bowl champ Tom Brady padded his postseason resume as both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Buffalo Bills snapped long playoff win droughts with a pair of National Football League wild-card victories on Saturday. Josh Allen threw for two touchdowns and the Bills defense intercepted Ben Roethlisberger two times to help Buffalo (14-3) win their 10th game of the season to that point.

The Colts had one last chance to mount a game-winning drive, but the game ended when a desperate Hail Mary attempt from quarterback Philip Rivers was batted away by Bills safety Micah Hyde. The Bills ran just 17 plays in the first 28 minutes. "I got cut and now I am back in the playoffs", Fournette said. No fans were allowed in attendance at Saturday's game because of the coronavirus pandemic.

In the second game of the night, Los Angeles rattled Russell Wilson and dominated even though it was without unanimous All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald for much of the second half of a 30-20 victory at Seattle.

The Buffalo Bills wide receiver corps has been solid all season and once again, came up big when this team needed them. That sent the Titans to the AFC championship game, which they lost at Kansas City.

And Baltimore rookie running back J.K. Dobbins rushed for 805 yards and nine touchdowns in 2020.

Allen is the fifth player since 1940 to have a TD pass, TD run and TD catch in his playoff career.

The Cleveland Browns have no new positive COVID-19 tests Sunday after nearly a week of issues leading into their first playoff game in almost two decades.

Colts quarterback Philip Rivers is making his seventh playoff appearance but just his second in the last seven seasons. If the Steelers win then they'll play in Buffalo next Saturday night. The NFL expanded the postseason field this season from 12 to 14 teams. The two teams had matching 11-5 records during the regular season.

Plus, New Orleans has a defense in many ways as staunch as Chicago's.

The Indianapolis Colts visit Buffalo in the first of three games Saturday.

That was the Buccaneers' first playoff victory since they beat Oakland in Super Bowl 37 on January 26, 2003.

That is how long it had been until Brady led the Buccaneers to a tough, 31-23 victory over the Washington Football Team in an NFC Wild-Card game to end a dry run that had extended from January 26, 2003.

The Browns had the ball for 5:20 in the first quarter and scored 28 unanswered points.

The 27-year-old, who served as a backup in the XFL before joining Washington's practice squad in early December, not only filled in admirably for Smith but hung in a wild-card game with Tom Brady, the greatest of all-time.
