Notes from the opening weekend of the 2020 NFL Playoffs

  • Legendary quarterbacks Tom Brady (Patriots) and Drew Brees (Saints) each lost in the wild card round at home to a 6-seed, thus preventing a Super Bowl showdown between them
  • Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz left Sunday's game in the first half after Seattle's Jadaveon Clowney landed on him hard
  • Luke McCown, who is 40, played quarterback for the Eagles after Wentz's injury
  • Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed for 184 yards and the game-winning touchdown over the Patriots
  • The Seattle Seahawks went 7-1 in road games during the regular season, now they travel to Green Bay after winning a playoff game at Philadelphia
  • The Dallas Cowboys officially announced the firing of coach Jason Garrett, and they did it during the Eagles playoff game Sunday, which is the time slot Dallas would have played had it won its division
