The 2015 NFL Playoffs kicked off last Saturday as the football world was rocked again by great action as the Panthers hosted the Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers welcomed the Baltimore Ravens. The second wave of football action continued on Sunday as the AFC conference members Bengals arrived in the city of Indianapolis to face off the Colts. Lastly, the Cowboys and the Lions closed up the day in Dallas- Texas.
The Baltimore Ravens survived the tumultuous dismissal of Ray Rice, a sometimes spotty fall and a critical month without their suspended, all-everything nose tackle. Winning in Pittsburgh in January hardly seemed too much to ask.
Allowed to hit the reset button in the playoffs, Joe Flacco and the NFL’s postseason road warriors are heading to New England with their swagger fully intact. Rarely flustered in the face of a pass rush that barely laid a hand on him, Flacco tossed two second-half touchdowns as the Ravens pulled away from the Steelers 30-17 in the AFC wild-card game.
Baltimore heads to top-seeded New England next Saturday, a place where it upset Tom Brady and company two years ago on the way to the franchise’s second Super Bowl title. The Ravens turned it over just once, scored on six of nine possessions and had an answer every time it seemed the Steelers were ready to grab momentum. Pittsburgh played without All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell, out with a hyperextended right knee. Fill-ins Ben Tate, Josh Harris and Dri Archer managed just 43 yards on 15 carries as the Steelers’ four-game winning streak came to an abrupt and decisive end. source: NFL.com
On Sunday, football enthusiasts were thrilled to experience top adrenaline as the best NFL powerhouses clashed to their road to Super Bowl XLIX. The season-ending defeat for Cincinnati came a week after the Bengals lost in Pittsburgh with the AFC North title — and the chance to host a postseason game — at stake.
Reaching the playoffs should not be treated as a foregone conclusion in Cincinnati. The Bengals are a once-downtrodden franchise that had reached the postseason twice in 20 years before Dalton became their quarterback. He has taken the team to the playoffs for four straight seasons. source: washingtonpost.com

Furthermore, Face-down on the turf, Tony Romo pounded his hands into the ground like a petulant child. Frustrated by yet another season-ending failure? Far from it. The Dallas quarterback was celebrating after giving the Cowboys the lead in a stirring playoff comeback. Romo threw two touchdown passes to Terrance Williams, the second for the lead late in the fourth quarter, and the Dallas Cowboys rallied for a 24-20 wild-card win over Detroit on Sunday in their first playoff game in five years.
The Cowboys (13-4) wiped out an early two-touchdown deficit to earn a trip to Green Bay, their first postseason visit there since a heartbreaking loss to the Packers in the Ice Bowl in 1967. The Packers opened at 5.5-point favorites over the Cowboys in next Sunday’s NFC divisional matchup.
