The 2017 NFL playoffs kick off today with one of the worst playoff games I can ever remember. The Texans have a good defense but have possibly the worst quarterback in the NFL, and the Raiders have gotten killed by injuries to the quarterback position. Connor Cook gets his first NFL start today in this game. Welcome to the big leagues, kid.
The second game should be fun. The Fightin’ Jim Bob Cooters head to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. The Seattle pass defense has been bad since Earl Thomas went down with an injury. However, Matthew Stafford has a finger injury that has hurt his ability to push the ball down the field. Will he be able to take advantage? Time will tell.
