A drama filled Divisional Round didn’t disappoint after a lackluster Wild Card weekend.  Four games resulting in walk-off wins and nothing was more theatrical than Bills-Chiefs at Arrowhead.  A game that might have ripped the soul out of Bills Mafia is one they won’t soon forget.  Todd and Payne recap the game and highlight how things truly unfolded.  While Bills fans are in distress, help is on the way for a few fan bases across the NFL.  Newly hired coaches are signing their deals and the guys chew on those moves for a bit.

Outside of the coaching ranks, we have the AFC and NFC Championship Games.  From Mahomes vs. Allen to Mahomes vs. Burrow, Kansas City will be decorated with talent across the field.  These two teams locked up in a rather head-scratching game Week 17 in a contest which saw the Bengals erase a double digit deficit and shock the Chiefs.  If Cincinnati is going to go 2-0 this season against the Chiefs, they’ll need to be better.  The offensive line for the Bengals has been swiss cheese as evident by the nine sacks surrendered last week against the Titans.  Unlike their previous two opponents, the Bengals can not rely on fields goals by Evan McPherson to carry them in a shootout.  This is the deepest the Bengals have been in the postseason in since 1988, can Joe Burrow continue his unworldly climb to the top of the quarterback ladder without protection?

Divide and conquer will be the theme in Los Angeles with the Rams and San Francisco 49ers.  Division rivals that flat out hate each other should set things up nicely in a primetime affair.  While it doesn’t have quite the ring as Dodgers-Giants, rest assured, there is no love lost between Northern and Southern California natives.  The 49ers have dominated this matchup in recent years and they swept the season series to get here.  The Rams were one of the sexy picks early and now they’re here, but some troubling losses to San Fran and Arizona forced them to play at Tampa Bay last week.  Nevertheless, this game will feature a lot of “nasty” in the trenches.  What will Kyle Shanahan do to get Deebo Samuel the ball and how can Sean McVay rid himself of a nagging nemesis?
