The defending Super Bowl champions quickly set the tempo.

Brady orchestrated two long drives that led to touchdowns in the first quarter, taking a 17-0 lead at half-time.

Seven-game Super Bowl winner Brady added two-yard touchdown passes to Rob Gronkowski and 36 yards to Mike Evans. The 44-year-old improved his playoff record to 35-11. That includes 85 touchdown passes.

Jalen Hurtz was interrupted twice in her playoff debut. Brady completed 29 of 37 passes.

“We have to keep going the same way,” Brady said. Little by little everyone has to go to the big games. We controlled the ball well and both the defense and the special teams did very well. ⁇

Brady Gronkovsky was singled out in the middle of the final zone and scored 24-0 in the third quarter. Evans caught the long touchdown pass just two minutes later.

The Eagles did not score until the final quarter through a 34-yard run from Boston Scott and a 16-yard reception from Kenneth Gainwell.

Giovanni Bernard and K’Shan Vaughan entered the pay zone with two and one yard runs in the first quarter.

Ryan Sukop completed a 34-yard field goal for the Bucks, who will play at home again next weekend.

In the first quarter, Tampa Bay played 25 games, including eight against the opposition. They led 137-17 in the yards and 11-1 in the first downs.

Little has changed since then, especially as the Bucks defense relied on the return of Lavonte David, Shaquille Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul.

Philadelphia maintained an encouraging climb, but it ended with an interruption by Mike Edwards in the end zone.

The Harts have 258 passing yards for the Eagles, who have won four of their last five games.

“I could definitely play better,” said Hurt, a 2020 second-round pick.

Coach Nick Syria felt that one person should not be blamed.

“Jalen doesn’t have his best game, but you can say the same about a lot of players,” said the Syrian, rookie coach.

“This also applies to us as coaching staff. As for Jalen, it doesn’t stop him from making progress throughout the season. ⁇

Debo Samuel and the San Francisco 49ers begin their playoff journey after a thrilling closing game with the Dallas Cowboys.

Doc Prescott and the Cowboys will have to wait a long time in the playoffs.

Receiver Samuel took the ball for a touchdown down on the game after the Prescott intercepted 26 yards and the 49ers won the Cowboys 23-17 on Sunday.

When the Cowboys found themselves on the 49ers 41-yard line they had one last chance with 32 seconds left. Prescott slid into midfield, hoping to play the final game with 14 seconds left on the clock.

However, from the 24th line, the Cowboys failed to keep the ball in the game before the final seconds. After a brief delay, referee Alex Kemp announced that the game was well over.

Head coach Mike McCarthy pointed out that the Cowboys had slowed down due to a confrontation between Prescott and officer Raman George and assured him that a referee on the touchline would be reviewing the game.

“The information I got next is that he’s going to review the game,” McCarthy said. We were going to add time to the game .. and then leave the field after a few moments. ⁇

The 49ers overcame an intercepted pass from Jimmy Garopolo as they had a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter. Prescott pushed the middle finger and cut the 49ers lead to touchdown, with a chance to take the lead with the conversion.

However, in the fourth down, Prescott made a pass from Cedric Wilson’s range, allowing the 49ers to take possession in less than two minutes. The 49ers failed to complete the full time and cleared the ball – which led to a dramatic end to the game.

The 49ers (11-7) will play Green Bay in the second round of the playoffs, aiming for another performance in the National Conference Finals.

“It lasted a whole day, really,” Garopolo said of the final series of the game. Fierce fighting took place here in a crazy atmosphere. I mean, the fans are very serious. This is all we thought of as a party. Just kidding. ⁇

Cowboys Streak (12-6) rises to 27 without appearing in the National Conference FinalE Year.

Prescott completed 23 of 43 passes for 254 passing yards. In Garobo, the future is uncertain with 49ers after the season, finding 16 in 25 passes up to 172 yards through the air.

Patrick Mahoms had 404 yards and five touchdown passes in the air, Travis Kelsey threw a touchdown pass and sent Kansas City chiefs Pittsburgh Steelers on vacation, and Ben Rothlisberger was on the verge of retirement with a 42-21 victory Sunday.

Byron Pringle catches a touchdown pass from Mahoms and Kelsey in the win. Jericho McKinnon and Tyrek Hill also shone with the majors for the Chiefs (13-5) looking for a third title at the American Conference.

The chiefs scored in six consecutive offensive performances and wiped out Rothlisberger and the rest of the Steelers on their way to the second round playoff game. They handle the buffalo bills on Sunday.

The bills advanced to the second round with an easy 47-17 victory over the New England Patriots on Saturday. Bills clashed with Kansas City Chiefs in the Association Finals last year.

Rothlisberger admitted this week that the Steelers (9-8-1) were “not a good football team”, but they did not play well by their usual standards. The 39-year-old quarterback completed 29 of 44 passes for 215 passing yards. He appeared in six Pro Bowls and completed two inconsistent touchdown passes in the game to end his career winning two Super Bowls.
