The New England Patriots secured home field advantage throughout the playoffs with a 49-21 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
The Pats now get the week to relax as Cincinnati battles Houston and Pittsburgh heads to Denver take on the Broncos on Wild Card Weekend. New England will host either Denver, Pittsburgh or Cincinnati.
NFL Network’s Bert Breer talked with Toucher & Rich about the Wild Card Weekend matchups. They started things off discussing the Cincinnati-Houston game.
Is this one of the worst playoff matchups? The Texans haven’t won a game since December 11th and the Bengals are 1-7 against teams with winning records. Plus, both teams have rookie quarterbacks starting for them. Can Texans QB T.J. Yates manage a game?
The guys moved on to discuss the Broncos-Steelers. Does Denver score a point against this Steelers defense?
Some teams that haven’t found success this season have started cleaning house. The Indianapolis Colts have started their changes with the front office. On Monday owner Jim Irsay fired vice chairman Bill Polian and Vice President and General Manager Chris Polian. Now that the Polian’s are gone does Breer think that the Colts might do something with Peyton Manning like possibly trading him?
