All eyes on NFL divisional playoffs — Watch on FOX 61
NEW YORK — The NFL matches are set! After Wildcard losses for the New York Giants, Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, and Oakland Raiders kicked them out of the playoffs, this weekend’s divisional games are ready for action.
In Sunday afternoon’s NFC Wildcard game, Aaron Rodgers overcame a sluggish start and finished with four touchdown passes, including a momentum-swinging 42-yard heave to Randall Cobb at the end of the second quarter, to lead the Green Bay Packers to a 38-13 win over the New York Giants.
The Houston Texans take on the New England Patriots in Foxborough this Saturday night, but the Texans playoff run is expected to end there. Houston lost to the Pats in Week Three 27-0, while New England was playing with third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. The Patriots are favored to win by 16 points. But in a news conference Monday morning, Tom Brady said he’s taking nothing for granted and “there is nothing easy” about facing Houston.
