The Eagles getting blown out is one thing but the injuries that the Bucs suffered to play this game is ridiculous.

Same thing tonight with the Steelers. They will lose big and if the Chiefs have someone go down :smh:

The #2 seed had a bye for decades. It worked well. This format is bad for the game.

What ya'll think?

24-27 Indy - Buff was a damn good game

21-9 NO - Chi - Trash
This one - Trash
Pitt - Chiefs with Big Ben final game is appealing.

I mean, Indy almost pulled it off last season and had one of the best playoff games. NFL will go crazy with the stories whenever a 7th seed wins it.

The constant disenchantment Americans have with the regular season is what causes this shyt. These leagues wanna keep expanding their playoff structures because we wanna fast forward through this shyt just to get to the good part, but let them remove games, fans will cry about not having content on TV.


These leagues can't keep trying to force these playoff moments when they're at their best when it's organic. Happened in baseball (and it may continue to where we get 14 teams in), happened in basketball, happened in football and hockey and soccer will fukk around and follow suit. It's ruining sports.
