The first Wild Card game of today was... A bit of an old-school snoozer.
No offense, you have to feel good for the winner, as it will be a team winning a playoff game for the first time in forever, but the game itself was brutal to watch.
The second game of today should offer a much better matchup... We hope.

This is the game that I think shapes the rest of the playoffs. While I thought the Chiefs had a chance to make a run in the AFC, it always felt like a reach. On the NFC side, the Saints and Panthers have to like their chances against the Minnesota Vikings next week, even if it is in Minnesota.
What do the Panthers need to do today?
They need Cam to be nearly perfect on offense, which is unfair to him, but it is where they are as a team right now.
The Saints need to continue to rely on their rushing offense and find a way hold down Cam Newton.
