NFL WILD CARD HEROES AND ZEROS

BOTTOMLINE
      *HEROES (TEAM) – BUFFALO: The Bills scored seven touchdowns in seven possessions and their team speed on both sides was obvious from start to finish in their domination of the Patriots.
      *HERO (PLAYER) – DEEBO SAMUEL: The 49ers all-purpose star provided 72 rushing yards and one touchdown plus three receptions for another 38 yards in the win at Dallas.
      *HERO (COACH) – ZAC TAYLOR: The Bengals head coach orchestrated the Bengals first playoff win in 31 years and he hit the the streets to three Cincinnati bars to hand out game balls to fans.
      *ZEROES (TEAM) – DALLAS: 14 penalties, seven of them pre-snap, and numerous other fundamental blunders from the coaching staff and players in yet another post-season loss.
      *ZERO (PLAYER) – JALEN HURTS: Don’t be fooled by the 258 passing yards, the Eagles starting quarterback did nothing to quiet his many critics barely completing 50 percent of his attempts with many wild inaccurate throws and two turnovers.
      *ZERO (COACH) – BILL BELICHICK: How can the greatest coach ever have almost no explosive players on offense and defense?
