Baker Mayfield - Wikipedia

Was wondering who the guy is in the various commercials.

Big surprise, so much for the Steel Curtain. Looked like Cleveland was going through a birdcage with a razor knife.

Shocking. I thought that after the fluke opening touchdown, Pittsburgh would settle down and dominate.

The thing here is that The Browns now have to go to Kansas City where they have zero chance of winning.

I think that the NFL has far too many teams in the playoffs. Most have no chance to win the Super Bowl. It's all about more games and more revenue. They like to give fans of some teams a false sense that their team has a chance.

They really should go to two divisions in each conference and a different playoff system.

They added a team this year. That means that almost half of the teams (14 out of 32) make the playoffs. In a few years, all 32 teams will be in the playoffs.

You are probably right with taking the Chiefs over the Browns.

I suspect that the Steelers thought it would be a cake walk and the Browns came to play hard. What really impressed me was the Browns offensive line which had many injuries and still protected Mayfield. I suspect KC will give them more respect and will probably win. In the meantime, I, as a lifetime Browns fan, will enjoy this week.

They should keep the xtra game , sure more money but more fun for fans and hope for your team to play another game , upsets happen and just getting to the championship game is great and I’ve always felt if you make it to super bowl win or lose your a champ

The Steelers biggest problem was starting the season 11-0 and talk of the perfect season came up, and the players believed it. Then they finished 1-4 and that's the team that played last night, the 1-4 Steelers. They are looking old and slow. When JuJu Smith Shuster said earlier in the week, it's the same old Browns, he added fuel to the fire. What they really needed was the same old Steelers, which they were not.

The two extra teams the 7th seeds were the Colts and the Bears. The Colts gave the Bills all they handle, it was only 3 point loss on the road. The Bears on the otherhand were not a playoff team. I think Chicago should get rid Nagy and go away from Trubiski, he's not an NFL starting QB. Having the Bears make the playoffs only shows the NFC is not nearly as good as the AFC.

Four of the wildcard teams beat division winners on the road. The Ravens beat the Titans, the Browns beat the Steelers, the Bucs beat Washington and the Rams beat the Seahawks. Had the top two seeds not played, the Bills and the Saints would of not played. However, I like having all the teams but only the top seed having to play the extra game. Three games to get to the Super Bowl instead just two games.

I know when the Ravens won SB XXXV in 2001 they were a Wildcard and had to play 3 playoff games, so it can be done by a Wildcard team.

I like the division with just 4 teams, you get to play each team twice in your division, that's 8 games, so the division would have a true winner. Then they play another whole division on a rotation, that's 4 games for a total of 12 and then you get games in the other conference. Which I like, it's like in baseball when the American and National League started playing games during the season, it added a little extra for fans to see teams they would normally never see.

Basically I like the new playoff format, only the top seed gets a bye and there are 3 wild cards in each conference. Hockey has had 16 teams in the playoffs out of 31 teams, and they play a best of 5 games and then a best of 7 games. They get a real true winner when they award the Stanley Cup.

I am an avid Steeler fan but I am not surprised that they lost. They went 11 and 0 but they only beat 3 teams with a winning record during that streak. It is time for Ben to retire and Tomlin to resign. The OC needs to go also
