The NFL Wild Card Weekend has come and gone, and football fans were treated to four exciting games. With the playoffs being single-elimination, every game was a must-win situation for the teams involved.

So, who won the NFL Wild Card Games? Let’s take a look.

Indianapolis Colts vs Buffalo Bills

The first game of the weekend saw the Indianapolis Colts travel to Buffalo to face the Bills. The Bills came into the game as favorites, but the Colts put up a good fight.

In the end, it was Buffalo who came out on top with a 27-24 victory. Josh Allen had a great game for the Bills, throwing for 324 yards and two touchdowns.

Los Angeles Rams vs Seattle Seahawks

Next up was an NFC West showdown between the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks. The Rams were without their starting quarterback Jared Goff, but that didn’t stop them from pulling off an upset win over Seattle.

The final score was 30-20 in favor of Los Angeles. Cam Akers had a big game for the Rams with 176 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Washington Football Team

Baltimore Ravens vs Tennessee Titans

The final game of Wild Card Weekend was a rematch between two AFC rivals: Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans. Last year, it was Tennessee who knocked Baltimore out of the playoffs in a stunning upset.

This year, however, it was the Ravens who came out on top with a 20-13 win. Lamar Jackson had a big game for Baltimore, throwing for 179 yards and rushing for 136 yards.
