Tebow leads Denver to victory over Steelers

The Broncos are now headed to New England, where they’ll be playing against Tom Brady and the Patriots for the chance of advancing to the AFC Championship Game, which will be played against either the Ravens or the Texans.

Giants to face Packers after defeating Falcons

The Giants are eager to play the Packers at the next round of the postseason after defeating the Falcons by 24-2 during their NFC wild-card game of Sunday night. The team from New York is looking for revenge as they lost to Green Bay in their last meeting of the regular season. The last time the Giants visited Lambeau Field during the playoffs was a few years back when New York got the NFC championship and a pass to the Super Bowl after defeating the Packers 23-20 in overtime.

Texans advances after taking down the Bengals

Back on Saturday, the Texans acquired the first playoff victory in the history of the franchise as they defeated the Bengals by 31-10.

But other players such as wide receiver Andre Johnson helped the franchise to stay alive in the postseason and now they are on their way to Baltimore to face the Ravens. “I’m just very proud of all the guys, and the job they did. Hopefully, there are some more (wins) to come.” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said.
