The GIST: Four elimination games, four walk-off wins. Our jaws are still on the floor after an incredible weekend of NFL Divisional Round playoff action.

AFC: On Saturday, led by rookie kicker Evan “Money Mac” McPherson and his next-level confidence, the No. 4 Cincinnati Bengals started things off by upsetting the top-seeded Tennessee Titans 19–16.

  • Cincy will travel to face QB Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, who won a thrilling 42–36 overtime battle against the Buffalo Bills after three lead changes in the final two minutes of regulation. What a game.

NFC: In another clutch kicking performance — this one from San Francisco 49er Robbie Gould, the Niners canceled eliminated QB Aaron Rodgers and the No. 1 Green Bay Packers with a snowy 13–10 win, the biggest upset of the weekend.

  • Next weekend’s NFC Championship game will feature the 49ers vs. the LA Rams, who overcame a 24-point comeback led by Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady and stunningly defeated the defending champs 30–27 with a walk-off FG yesterday. Wow.

Driving the conversation: Speaking of Brady, yesterday’s 329-yard performance could be his last. The GOAT is reportedly uncertain about playing next year and will take some time this offseason to make a decision. We pretend we do not see it.
