Opening Weekend Postseason Recap
The largest Wild Card weekend in the history of the NFL was epic. There were six games, and many of them were very competitive. How can you not love football? It’s impossible.
This weekend there will be four games with a doubleheader on Saturday and Sunday. However, before you place your wagers, you must understand what happened during Wild Card weekend.
Here is your recap from the first weekend of playoff football.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Covers with Ease vs Philadelphia Eagles
The best storyline from the Eagles vs Buccaneers game was that Jason Kelce’s mother was able to see her son play in Tampa Bay and then made it to Kansas City to watch Travis. The final outcome of the Eagles vs Buccaneers contest was decided before kickoff.
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers rolled to victory. Giovani Bernard came up huge for Tampa Bay, and Jalen Hurts could not match the scoring. Philadelphia did not belong in the playoffs based on their effort in this game. Tampa Bay won 31-15, covering -8.5 with ease.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers stays at Home this weekend and will face a strong Los Angeles Rams team. This should be a great matchup on both sides but Tampa Bay will have the Brady effect so do not count them out.
49ers Won and Cowboys have a Ton of Excuses Why they Lost
The 49ers were the one underdog to cover and win outright this weekend against the Cowboys. Dallas is known for blowing up in the playoffs, and they did not disappoint in this matchup. The Cowboys did not show up and allowed an inferior Niners team to control the clock.
Penalties killed Dallas, which has been a recurring theme throughout the year. The 49ers were +3 and then won 23-17. Dallas had a chance on the final drive, but things did not end well. Per usual, Dallas blamed the referees.
If you thought 49ers vs the Cowboys was a tough match wait until 49ers go up against the Packers. 49ers travel to Green Bay to face the Packers. Lets see if the the break helped the packers or if it will hurt them.
