After a wild weekend of NFL divisional round action, four teams remain alive heading into next weekend’s conference championships. Sunday’s two games featured some incredible individual performances, along with some total duds.
The first game saw the Houston Texans go up 24-0 over the Kansas City Chiefs, only to lose by the blowout score of 51-31. The stunning game put one worldwide sports figure to sleep, and his reaction when he woke up later was pure gold.
Later in the evening, the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers took to Lambeau Field for the right to face the San Francisco 49ers next weekend. It was a nail-biter, but in the end, the Seahawks are going home, and the Packers are moving on.
Looking at what transpired in the two contests, we’re highlighting the best and worst of Sunday’s divisional round games.
Patrick Mahomes was unbelievable, and he deserves a ton of credit for his 321-yard, five-touchdown performance. But for the sake of this list, we’re focusing more on Mahomes’ top target, tight end Travis Kelce, who gutted out a historic performance while dealing with multiple injuries.
