Titans take 7-0 lead over Ravens in wild card


Points by the Browns in Sunday's first half, the most by a road team in National Football League playoff history and tied for the most by the Browns in any half of a playoff game in franchise history.

A questionable fourth-and-goal call near the goal line inside the two-minute warning of the first half gave the ball back to Buffalo with enough time on the clock for Josh Allen to drive the Bills 96 yards for a touchdown to take a halftime lead.

"If it's God's will that I'm in Indy with the Colts next year, then I'll be here", said Rivers, who made 27-of-46 for 309 yards and two touchdowns. But that doesn't mean anything, that just means we've got another opportunity to get back swinging and fight for a Super Bowl next year.

A pick-6 by Darious Williams was a major contributor, as were five sacks overall by the team, including two by Donald.

In the last three years, the Saints have been knocked out of the playoffs in heartbreaking circumstances including the NFC Championship Game at home to the Los Angeles Rams in the 2018 season.

"It doesn't matter how it looks", Allen said.

DeAndre Hopkins" 43-yard leaping catch on Kyler Murray's desperation throw - the "Hail Murray' - won the game for Arizona.

"It's been a long time since Bills Mafia has been able to celebrate like this", Allen said.

In August, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar became the first Cabinet member to visit Taiwan since 2014. China, which opposes Taiwan having its own foreign relations, sharply criticises all such interaction.

Wolford was released and celebrated with the team in the locker room after the game, according to Rams coach Sean McVay.

Besides Wolford's injury, offensive lineman David Edwards left the game early in the second quarter with an ankle injury and did not return. "I was real pleased with Jared, and I think it was a real credit to him to be able to handle this week the right way and have himself mentally ready to go".

The Browns will be without coach Kevin Stefanski for Sunday night's wild-card game in Pittsburgh. They barely practiced this week.

We're breaking down all of the eye-popping numbers from the Browns' 48-37 Wild Card win over the Steelers. Cleveland is strong with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, while Pittsburgh struggles. Drew Brees likely is in his final playoff run and has supreme weapons in record-tying RB Alvin Kamara and, if healthy, wideout Michael Thomas. The Bears need their defense to be at its best because other than WR Allen Robinson, they have few threats.

Philip Rivers was brought in to take them to the next step and he has, it's not been entirely on his shoudlers though, the passing game has been varied, he likes his tight ends, Doyle, Burton and Alie-Cox get a lot of the ball as does Nyheim Hines from the backfield, while TY Hilton stepped up at the end of the season and Pascal and Pittman have chipped in as well. He finished with seven catches [on seven targets] for 57 yards.

The Seahawks responded immediately when Wilson hit Metcalf for a 51-yard touchdown but the Rams restored their 10-point cushion with a touchdown from running back Cam Akers that made it 20-10 at half-time.

Baltimore has its own highly efficient running game, a three-pronged operation featuring quarterback Lamar Jackson and RBs Gus Edwards and rookie J.K. Dobbins.

The Colts, meanwhile, rallied from a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter to come within a field goal of tying the game with two minutes remaining, only to come up agonizingly short.
