In Week 15, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin elevated Mason Rudolph to starting quarterback. Since that game, the Steelers are 3-0 and find themselves in the playoffs for the third time in four seasons.

However, Pittsburgh will be without outside linebacker T.J. Watt, who is dealing with a knee injury. Speaking of win streaks, the Buffalo Bills ran the table down the stretch, winning five straight games to win the AFC East and clinch the No. 2 seed. Originally scheduled for January 14, the game was moved to Monday, January 15 at 4:00 p.m. by New York Governor Kathy Hochul due to dangerous weather conditions as a result of winter storms occurring throughout the country.

What is wrong with the Philadelphia Eagles? This team started 10-1 and looked poised to return to the Super Bowl. However, the Eagles have gone 1-5 since defeating the Bills in Week 12.

Philadelphia now has to hit the road in the Wild Card Round and play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who won their third straight NFC South title. If the Eagles lose to the Bucs, will Philadelphia coach Nick Sirianni lose his job?
