The NFL’s wild-card weekend sent four teams to the divisional round and four others home for the winter as some stars thrived while others faded to black.
The Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans punched their tickets to the next round with victories on Saturday over the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots, respectively. On Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings advanced by stunning the New Orleans Saints. Then, the Seattle Seahawks moved on by taking down the Eagles in Philly.
These are the biggest studs and duds from the action during NFL’s wild-card weekend.

Ryan Tannehill passed for 72 yards Saturday night, and normally that type of production is not a winning formula in the playoffs. Normal isn’t a word we can use to describe the pounding Derrick Henry and the Titans offensive line put on the vaunted New England Patriots defense.
