To open the NFL playoffs, the Bills (10-6) visited the Texans (10-6) in an ugly matchup that turned momentum in the second half. After jumping out to a 16-0 lead using a combination of trick offensive plays and stellar defense, the Bills allowed the Texans to score 19 unanswered points to take a late lead in the game. The Bills dominated the first three quarters of the game, but only walked away with 16 points to show for it.

The tide turned when Deshaun Watson led an impressive drive towards the end of the third quarter, which ended with him carrying several defenders into the endzone for the Texans first score of the game. From that moment, the Texans would continue to harass Josh Allen, as it looked as if the two teams swapped offensive linemen at halftime.

Allen would eventually lead a drive to force overtime, but the Texans worked their offensive magic to kick the game winning field goal, ending the game 22-19 in overtime. The Texans will travel to Kansas City to play the Chiefs in the Divisional Round.

In what will likely be the biggest upset of the weekend, the Titans beat the Patriots 20-13, in what could be Tom Brady’s last game. The Patriots don’t lose at home in the playoffs often, so social media is basking in the glory of the Titans. Boston fans will always remember the night they played the Titans. It happened to be the night that Derrick Henry became a one man show and totaled 204 yards and a touchdown.

The game was 14-13 at halftime, with neither team scoring until the Titans scored on a pick-six with seconds left in the game. After the game, Brady kept his future with the Patriots unclear, but stated that he’s not retiring. The Titans will travel to Baltimore to play the Ravens in the Divisional Round.
