What a Wild Card Weekend! It certainly was a memorable slate of games, with two overtime thrillers, two major upsets, three 40-year-old quarterbacks (all losing) and one unforgettable Josh Allen no-look backhand lateral while being tackled. It really was one of the great Wild Card slates in recent memory.
All that is in the past now, though, and we’re moving on to the Divisional Round for another excellent set of matchups, with each game featuring one well-deserving Wild Card team and one well-rested home favorite coming off a first-round bye. In the past decade, 30 of the 40 Divisional Round games have ended with the 1 or 2 seed moving on to their respective conference championship game, meaning the trends are certainly against these road underdogs.
The first game of the weekend pits the San Francisco 49ers against the surprise sixth-seeded Minnesota Vikings. Currently, the 49ers are the 7-point home favorites, according to MyBookie Sportsbook.
Let’s get down to business and analyze each team’s strengths and weaknesses as we await their approaching battle on the gridiron.
