NFL AFC Wild Card

The first round of Wild Card weekend is over and fitting the name it certainly was a wild one. First off was the blowout by the Wild Card Kansas City Chiefs over the AFC South Champs Houston Texans. 
With J. J. Watt exiting earlier, the Texans never really had a chance. Their offense was weak and the Chiefs are a much more playoff calibre team. Kansas City will go on to face the New England Patriots in Foxboro Stadium next Saturday.

The second game was a real battle filled with anger and frustration. The officials had to throw so many flags but nothing could calm the emotions of these divisional rivals. The Pittsburgh Steeler triumphed over the Cincinnati Bengals in the final with some awful penalties and a fumble. The Bengals had it won after coming back from a deficit all game. Burfect intercepted a pass but the fumble gave Pittsburgh the ball with enough time to drive down the field and kick a field goal.

It sucks to see the Bengals fail again. They have a hell of a playoff losing streak going. The Steelers will face the Denver Broncos  next Sunday in Denver.
