NFL Watch // Texans, Ravens, Packers & Seahawks Move On

words // Brandon Richard

The NFL playoffs began with the Wildcard Round over the weekend, featuring four battles divided between the AFC and NFC.

Behind Arian Fosters 140-yard, 1 touchdown performance on the ground, the Houston Texans topped the Bengals in the playoffs for the second-straight year by a score of 19-13. Quarterback Matt Schaub completed 29 passes for 262 yards in his first ever playoff game.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers reminded NFL fans of how good they can be when they have most of their pieces intact. Vintage Packers defense proved to be too much for a Christian Ponder-less Minnesota Vikings team, who exits after a 24-10 loss at Lambeau.

Ray Lewis took the M&T Bank field for the final time in his Hall of Fame career on Sunday, then the Baltimore Ravens made sure they sent him out in style. Anquan Boldin’s 145 yards and touchdown receptions led the way for Ravens as they flew by Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts 24-9.

Robert Griffin III gutted his way through his playoff debut, but ultimately fellow rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks had his number. RG3 exited the game after re-injuring his right knee and the Seahawks pulled out a gritty 24-14 road victory. “Beast Mode” Marshawn Lynch paced the ‘Hawks with 132 yards rushing.

As a result of this past weekend’s games, the Texans will travel to Foxborough to take on the New England Patriots and Ray Lewis’ Ravens will visit Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. In the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers will host the Packers and the Seahawks will visit the Atlanta Falcons.
