What just might be the best weekend on the NFL calendar got off to a dramatic start Saturday. The NFL divisional playoffs figured to be exciting with four intriguing matchups on the slate, and the first game didn't disappoint.
The action kicked off with the Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans in Nashville and came down to a game-winning 52-yard field goal by Bengals rookie Evan McPherson, which lifted Cincinnati into the AFC title game. The nightcap also came down to a walk-off field goal, as veteran Robbie Gould kicked the 49ers into the NFC title game and sent Aaron Rodgers and the Packers into an unknown future.
The weekend ended with what may have been the best game of the NFL season, and possibly the greatest postseason game ever, in Kansas City as Buffalo's Josh Allen and the Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes put on an aerial show. The visiting Bills rallied for what figured to be a game-winning touchdown with 13 seconds left for a 36-33 lead, but that was still too much time for Mahomes, as the Chiefs kicked a game-tying field goal as regulation ended to send the game into overtime. The Chiefs won the toss and marched down the field to win on a Mahomes to Travis Kelce touchdown pass.
