Sunday open thread: Which postseason team are you rooting for?

Anyone but the Packers.

Two games down, two games to go for the NFL Wild Card round. Saturday started off with a low-scoring, but entertaining overtime battle between the Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills. The Bills have suffered some crushing post-season defeats in their long history, and though it wasn’t in the Super Bowl this time, their collapse against the Texans leaves a sour taste in the mouth when it looked like they had it in the bag for so long.

The night ended with the Patriots getting an early vacation as the Tennessee Titans advanced thanks much to Derrick Henry carrying the team on his back. It was a great way to start the decade off, unless for some reason you were rooting for the Patriots.

Sunday’s slate features two NFC Wild Card matchups between the Vikings-Saints and Seahawks-Eagles. Those that received bye weeks are the 49ers, Ravens, Chiefs and Packers.

Today’s Question of the Day is;

What NFL team are you rooting for during the playoffs?

My answer: Consider me all-in on the Baltimore Ravens this year. There may not be a more exciting team in the NFL. Watching Lamar Jackson is a treat, and he’s going to be out to prove the doubters wrong for the rest of his career.

The only other true rooting interest I have is hopefully watching the Packers lose their Divisional Round matchup in heartbreaking fashion.

Your turn.
