What a wild weekend

What a wild weekend

  The wild card weekend in the NFL playoffs gave us some wild finishes.

  Sunday at frigid Lambeau Field San Francisco beat Green Bay 23-20 on a Phil Dawson game winning 33-yard field goal. Its the second straight year the 49ers have beaten the Packers in the playoffs.

   New Orleans finally won a road playoff game beating Philadelphia 26-24 on Shayne Graham game winning kick. The Colts engineered the second greatest comeback in playoff history overcoming a 38-10 deficit to beat Kansas City 45-44. The Colts and Andrew Luck faces Tom Brady and the Patriots on Saturday night.

  The Chargers bolted past Cincinnati 27-10. Andy Dalton was awful for the Bengals committing three turnovers. So now the Denver Broncos face AFC West rival San Diego. The Chargers backed into the playoffs but now own a five game winning streak.

  Seattle, the NFC's top seed, will now get a visit from the New Orleans Saints for the second time this year. The first meeting between the two sides was a 34-7 victory in favor of the home team.

 The Carolina Panthers will host the red hot 49ers. Also a rematch, the Panthers beat the 49ers by a 10-9 margin in Week 10.

  A reminder you can hear all the action on WHAM 1180.
