- by admin
4 hours agoThe NFC wild card matchup between the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night was one of the biggest games of the regular season.
The Jets and Cardinals are both 1-4 and are still searching for a way to get past the Bengals and Raiders in the divisional round.
The first half was filled with the kind of excitement and momentum the NFL is trying to build in the postseason.
The Chiefs had a field day in the first half, scoring four touchdowns in the second half to take a 10-0 lead.
The second half was a much different story.
The Bengals started the game on a 21-0 run, and then gave up a pair of touchdown passes in the final two minutes.
The Raiders held a 17-0 advantage at halftime.
The Raiders had an early lead on the Bengals, but a short field goal by Ryan Succop made it 17-7 with 5:34 remaining.
The Titans then drove the last three minutes, scoring on a field goal from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and two touchdowns from receiver Travis Kelce.
The Jaguars led by seven points late in the third quarter, but the Chiefs came out firing late in their fourth quarter to take control.
They scored five touchdowns in just 13 minutes of action.
The Bengals then led for a little over a minute on a Ryan Mallett interception.
After that, the Chiefs tied it up late in a 29-17 win over the Titans.
The Arizona Cardinals then lead the way in the fourth quarter, scoring three touchdowns in 10 minutes of play.
It’s not uncommon for quarterbacks to get burned at the goal line, but Arizona’s Drew Stanton hit quarterback Carson Palmer with a pass that bounced off the goal post and hit the side of the helmet.
It was the longest touchdown pass of the season.
