2022 bracket-temp-2-dal-v1.jpg

After a Super Wild Card weekend that certainly lived up to its name, the final round has been set.

The Cowboys were the last team to punch their ticket to the playoffs, and they did that Monday night by crushing the Buccaneers. The win over Tampa Bay now allows the Cowboys to travel to San Francisco, where they will face the 49ers that knocked them out of the playoffs last season.

In other NFC games, the Giants will travel to Philadelphia to face an Eagles team that has beaten them twice this year. With the Giants, Cowboys and Eagles all in the division, it will be the first time since the NFC Central in 1997. Division One sent three teams to the second round.

In the AFC, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs will play their first game of the postseason when they host the Jaguars on Saturday. The heavyweight matchup in the AFC will take place on Sunday when the Bills host the Bengals. The two teams were supposed to play each other in Week 17, but the game was canceled after a scary incident that caused Damar Hamlin to go into cardiac arrest in the first quarter.

Hamlin is now back in Buffalo, where he continues to recover.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the entire response table and brackets.

The Jags fell behind, 27-0, early in the game due in large part to four interceptions from Trevor Lawrence, but they rebounded to pull off a surprising victory, thanks in large part to Lawrence, who threw four touchdown passes.

Sunday, January 15

  • (2) Bills 34-31 over (7) Dolphins. The Dolphins entered this game as the biggest underdog in the history of the wild-card round (+14) and despite those odds, they could still put a major scare into the Bills.

The game left only 2:30 to play.

Monday, January 16

  • (5) Cowboys 31-14 over (4) Buccaneers. The Cowboys dominated this game from start to finish, and a big reason for that was because of Dak Prescott, who had a historically great night. The Cowboys QB set a franchise record with five total touchdowns (four pass, one rush) while still throwing for 305 yards. The only Cowboys player who struggled in this game was kicker Brett Maher, who missed an NFL-record four extra points.

Saturday, January 21

  • (4) Jaguars at (1) Chiefs (-8.5), 4:30 pm ET (NBC). After taking a week off, the Chiefs will open their season with a game against a team from the Jaguars that they actually played earlier this season.

  • (6) Giants at (1) Eagles (-7.5), 08:15 pm ET (Fox). The two divisional teams will meet for the third time this season and the Giants will be hoping that this game will have a different result than the first two games, both of which were won by Philadelphia.

Teams that went 2-0 in the regular season have pulled off a three-game sweep 15 of 24 times.

  • (3) Bengals at (2) Bills (-5), 3 pm ET (CBS). This game will be played exactly 20 days after their original game was canceled due to the situation involving Damar Hamlin. With Hamlin now back home in Buffalo, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he were to attend this game.
  • (5) Cowboys at (2) 49ers (-4), 6:30 pm ET (Fox). The 49ers haven’t played the Cowboys this year, but these two teams met last January in a playoff game that came down to the wire.
