Super Wild Card Weekend is in the books, and now just eight teams remain in the NFL playoffs as we look forward to the divisional round. The competition over the course of last weekend wasn’t particularly close as there were a number of blowouts, but it looks like we’re about to be rewarded with a stacked slate in the second round. We have multiple high-level quarterback matchups, a rematch of a conference championship game from a season ago, and both No. 1 seeds crashing the postseason party after the bye week.
