So will you be watching any of the football wild card playoffs this weekend? While my Giants had a HORRIBLE season, I'm not a fair weather fan. But I am an honest fan. They were awful, so now for the playoffs I'll be doing more rooting against that rooting for, with the exception of one game. Here's the rundown and my picks:
Saturday, Jan. 15
- Raiders at Bengals: 4:30 p.m. ET (NBC) Stream: fuboTV (try for free). This is the first time these two teams have met in the postseason since January 1991 when the Raiders started Cincinnati's 31-year playoff losing streak. I have no skin in this game, so I'll be happy for whoever wins.
- Patriots at Bills: 8:15 p.m. ET (CBS) Stream: Paramount+. These two division rivals will be meeting for the third time this season. I despise the Patriots....not as humans but as a team. And my brother Jimmy has always been a Bills fan and in honor of him and the fact that Buffalo is a New York team, I'll be watching and cheering them on.
Sunday, Jan. 16
- Eagles at Buccaneers:1 p.m. ET (Fox) Stream: fuboTV (try for free). The Eagles will get another crack at a Buccaneers team that beat them 28-22 back in Week 6. After that loss, the Eagles went 7-4 over their final 11 games to earn a playoff berth. Go Eagles....I'm not a Tom Brady fan, so anyone who can beat him is okay in my book!
- 49ers at Cowboys:4:30 p.m. ET (CBS and Nickelodeon) Stream: Paramount+. This will be a rematch of one of the most storied rivalries in NFL playoff history. This will mark their first postseason meeting since the 1994 season, which is also the last time the 49ers won the Super Bowl.. I'm not a Cowboys fan, so go 49'ers! Plus I have friends in SanFran so in honor of them I also will cheer them on
- Steelers at Chiefs:8:15 p.m. ET (NBC) Stream: fuboTV (try for free). Ben Roethlisberger will get a chance to put off his retirement for another week or two if the Steelers can figure out a way to upset the Chiefs. Again, not a Steelers fan, so go Chiefs!
Monday, Jan. 17
- Cardinals at Rams:8:15 p.m. ET (ABC/ESPN) Stream: fuboTV (try for free). No skin in this game, so whoever wins, wins!
