Patrick Mahomes played his first-ever road NFL playoff game Sunday as the Kansas City Chiefs faced the Buffalo Bills. It was a terrific matchup between two top-tier AFC teams. And what happened on the sidelines was just about as interesting as the game. Thank you, Jason Kelce.

Taylor Swift's NFL era:  Any question the NFL would return to life "PT" (that's pre-Taylor) now that Taylor Swift has established herself as a legitimate Kansas City Chiefs fan have been answered. Ever since Swift stepped foot into Arrowhead Stadium to watch boyfriend Travis Kelce and the Chiefs play, fans haven't been able to get enough of seeing Swift in the stands. Despite the league's attempt to tone down the Swift coverage, giving plenty of material to award show and late night talk show hosts, Taylor Swift mania has officially hit the NFL with no signs of slowing down during the playoffs. Swift heads back out on tour on Feb. 7, 2024 in Tokyo, Japan, which means she'll miss Super Bowl LVIII if Kelce's Chiefs go all the way. Until then, expect a lot of game day cutaways to Taylor Swift in the stands, even if the NFL swears off it.

Is this the Lions year?  The Cinderella story of the 2023-2024 NFL season, the Detroit Lions are two games away from the franchise's first-ever Super Bowl appearance. The Lions showed what they're made of in their 23-24 Wild Card victory over the Los Angeles Rams. The two teams made headlines in 2021 when they swapped quarterbacks, sending Matthew Stafford to the Rams in exchange for former Rams quarterback Jared Goff. Goff finally got his vengeance with Sunday's victory, earning the respect of fans and Lions head coach Dan Campbell along the way.

Is there an MVP in the house?  Endless hours of NFL sports broadcasts over recent years have been dedicated to arguing the talents (or lack thereof) of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. Lamar has always been a dynamic scrambler out of the pocket and this season is no different. Poised to have the best season of his career with MVP chants following him (again) at every turn, Jackson has quickly silenced any remaining naysayers this season. The Ravens might not get the hype of the Chiefs or the Dallas Cowboys, but they're a serious Super Bowl contender and Lamar is already making a case to turn those MVP chants into reality. If you don't mind being called a "bandwagon" by the teenager in your life, there's never been a better time to jump on the Ravens bandwagon. No one will know you just get here, and we certainly won't tell.
