2013 NFL Playoffs: Recapping Divisional Round Courtesy of Coors Light
Here’s a recap of the Divisional Round games from the 2013 NFL Playoffs courtesy of Coors Light–the game’s most refreshing beer.
In what could go down as one of the most exciting finishes of all time, the Ravens pulled off one of the most exciting wins in playoff history after Jacoby Jones caught a 70-yard touchdown pass to with 31 seconds left to tie the game off before Baltimore went on to win in overtime. Nobody gave the Ravens must of a chance heading in to the Divisional Round considering the Broncos were one of the hottest teams in football to end the regular season, but they’re now in the AFC Championship for the second-straight season.
Who saw this type of performance coming by Colin Kaepernick? For a quarterback that many believed would have a case of the jitters in his first career playoff start, Kapernick was absolutely phenomenal against the Packers as he set the postseason rushing record for a quarterback with 181 rushing yards–which is an impressive statistic to go along with his 263 passing yards.
With the way things worked out in the first half, all signs pointed to the Falcons cruising to the NFC Championship, but they received a bit of a scare when the Seahawks rallied and took the lead with less than a minute left. Atlanta has found ways to win games in the craziest ways throughout the regular season and Sunday’s game was just another example of how this team never stops fighting until the clock strikes zero.
Even without Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots’ offense looks just as dangerous as they had no troubles getting by the Texans for the second time this season. For the second-straight season, New England will host the AFC Championship against Baltimore–which could turn out to be another classic.
