Wild Card breakdown
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF and Establish The Run analyst Dwain McFarland to break down all six Wild Card matchups. The guys start off by complimenting Josh Allen on his fantastic season, although Dwain points out that things haven't gone as smooth vs. zone-heavy defenses like the Colts. Ian is confident that Indy should be able to move the ball with decent success through the air or on the ground; just realize the Bills aren't as bad at stopping the run as some numbers indicate. Ian and Dwain think the Rams are better off with Jared Goff (thumb) vs. John Wolford under center, particularly against a Seahawks defense that has struggled to stop the deep ball all season. Discussion continues with neither guy being confident in the Buccaneers or the Football Team's ability to put up points. The opposite is true for the the Ravens' matchup against the Titans, while Dwain cautions in counting out Mitch Trubisky and the Bears against the Saints. Finally the guys wrap it up by taking a closer look at Baker Mayfield's chances of pulling off the upset in Pittsburgh. Additional topics include: can Russell Wilson overcome this terrifying Rams defense, will the decent version of the Steelers defense please stand up, is it Terry McLaurin week, are the Titans the Ravens' kryptonite, and much more.
