NFL playoffs kick off with the Wildcard Weekend. The weekend starts off with an AFC matchup between the Bills and Colts, then division rivals Rams and Seahawks will face off in Seattle, ending with the juggernaut Buccaneers and underdogs Washington. Sunday features two historic rushing teams in the Ravens and Titans, while Drew Brees hopes to lead the Saints to a win in the Superdome, and the first-ever Super Wild Card Weekend ends with a young Browns offense vs. T.J. Watt and the dominant Steelers defense.

 

Here are the 5 most interesting facts to know about the NFL Wildcard matchups:

Buffalo Bills are having one of the greatest offensive seasons in NFL history, while the Colts have Jonathan Taylor, who is an up-and-coming star rusher in the NFL.
