On Saturday, two Wild Card games were played in the National Football League (NFL). The first game was between the Indianapolis Colts and the Buffalo Bills, while the second game was between the Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks.

The Colts vs. Bills game was played at Bills Stadium in Orchard Park, New York. Both teams had impressive regular seasons, but it was the Bills who came out on top with a 27-24 victory.

The game was a back-and-forth affair with both teams exchanging leads throughout. However, it was a clutch field goal by Tyler Bass in the fourth quarter that sealed the win for Buffalo.

In the second game of the day, the Rams traveled to Lumen Field in Seattle to take on division rival Seahawks. The Rams were without starting quarterback Jared Goff due to injury, but backup John Wolford stepped up in his absence. The Rams defense also played a major role in their 30-20 victory over Seattle, with standout performances from Aaron Donald and Leonard Floyd.

The Rams led from start to finish and never trailed in their Wild Card victory over Seattle. Cam Akers rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown while Wolford threw for 231 yards and no interceptions.

With these results, both the Bills and Rams move on to face their respective opponents in next weekend’s Divisional Round of playoff games.

It will be interesting to see if these teams can continue their winning ways as they face tougher competition moving forward in their quest for a Super Bowl championship.
