The Dolphins limp into the playoffs at 9-8 as the seventh seed. Starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is out, so Teddy Bridgewater or Skylar Thompson will start under center. The No. 2-seeded Bills enter the Wild Card Game as the 13-3 AFC East Champions. The Bills will look to win the game for safety Damar Hamlin, who was recently discharged from the hospital after suffering cardiac arrest during a game on January 2.
The Giants find themselves back in the playoffs for the first time since 2016. As the sixth seed with a 9-7-1 record, the Giants will be looking to win their first playoff game in over a decade. The Vikings exceeded preseason expectations by winning the NFC North with a record of 13-4, earning Minnesota the third seed. These two teams met last month in a game that saw the Vikings win on a last-second field goal.
The sixth-seeded Ravens are 10-7, but there are questions surrounding the status of quarterback Lamar Jackson. If Jackson can’t go, that will be a huge loss for a Ravens offense that hasn’t scored over 20 points since the end of November. The Cincinnati Bengals are out to prove that last year’s Super Bowl run was no fluke. The AFC North winners boast a record of 12-4, but won’t be satisfied until they win the Super Bowl.
