The first half of games for the Divisional Round of the 2021 NFL playoffs turned out to be a dude. The favorites—the Packers and Bills—both won comfortably, sending the Rams and Ravens, respectably, packing.

It was obviously a disappointing set of games to watch from a fan perspective, but let’s hope Sunday can draw some more competitive matchups.

I’m not so sure we’ll get that out of the first game. The Kansas City Chiefs host the Cleveland Browns in the afternoon game, and the home team is favored by as high as 10 points. The Chiefs are defending champions that soundly locked up the one seed, while the Browns are in their first playoffs in decades. Still, don’t count out Baker Mayfield and company. We all saw what they did to the Steelers last week.

But the evening game is where the fireworks really lie. The NFL couldn’t be more excited by the matchup of Tom Brady vs. Drew Brees, as the two face off in what could be the final game of either’s career. Throw together a divisional rivalry, and this is just about as good as a playoff game can get.
