Colts: "ONE MISSING PIECE"
“They got into Bills territoy in all nine of their offensive possesions excluding the kneel down and they couldn't win a game. That's almost unheard of. They moved the ball, but situationally in the red zone they're incredibly limited. The Colts are the first team to lose with 450+ total yards and no turnovers in NFL postseason history. They gotta get more DYNAMIC at quarterback."
Bills: "All On Allen"
“First quarterback to have 300+ passing yards, 70% completion percentage, and 50+ rushing yards in a playoff game since 1948. Now the questions comes -- they're not running the football well and they're pass-rush is very hit or miss. They're very well-coached, but if you're not winning in the trenches, and they did NOT win the battle in the trenches this weekend, how long and how far can an uber-talent quarterback take you? Well, we know the answer, and it's having the ability to beat the Colts."
Rams: "GREAT EXCEPT GOFF"
“They're 37-0 when leading at halftime so they're well-coached. Their defense gave Russell Wilson absolute fits. They had five sacks but Jared Goff completed only 9 throws. They didn't wanna start him, they didn't wanna play him, and that miraculous Cooper Kupp catch was really the highlight of the day. I don't see how you can go to Lambeau and beat Aaron Rodgers when you've got a quarterback the coaching staff and quarterback himself lack confidence in."
Seahawks: "RUSS GOT COOKED"
“Eleven completions and only a 41% completion percentage. The Seahawks started the game 0 for 8 on third down. I don't have an answer for it. They got healthier on offense and WORSE. I do think they need to address the offensive line. It's never been a strength of Pete Carroll, and I don't think they've ever had a top 5 or top 6 offensive line since he's been in Seattle. Thank God for the left tackle spot, but outside that they need some work."
