JARED QUAY: This year, the first weekend of the NFL playoffs wasn't just wild. It was also super. With the big game just four weeks away, let's get squared away with the contenders and how you can get in on the action, thanks to the official mortgage sponsor of Super Bowl LV with the Rocket Mortgage Super Bowl Squares Sweepstakes.

The Steelers gave up a fumble for a touchdown the first play of their game against the Browns, and Cleveland never gave up the lead. It was the Browns first playoff game in 18 years, their first playoff win in 25, and the first one on the road since 1969. I don't think my mom was alive then. Yes, she was. She wouldn't remember because she was real young. And if they want to make it to their first ever Super Bowl, they're going to need to do more of the same next week in Kansas City.

The Bears and Saints game may have been aired on Nickelodeon, but the main character was still an old guy. Drew Brees threw for two touchdowns and led New Orleans to a 21 to 9 victory over Chicago. The win sets up an epic battle of the boomers. Brady, Brees.

In the divisional round, Brees hooks up with fellow 40-something Tom Brady, and I can't wait. It's like the loser got to retire. Them the rules.

It's took three playoff games, but Lamar Jackson finally got himself a post season win. He went for 136 yards and a TD in Baltimore's 20 to 13 victory over Tennessee. It didn't hurt that the Ravens defense held Derrick Henry to just 40 yards on the ground. And when you do that, you deserve to dance anywhere you want. We'll see if that brave next week when they go to Buffalo to take on the Bills, who's mafia is so ruthless, this is how they treat little kids.

JARED QUAY: There were plenty of games on the NBA schedule last night, but we got to talk about the one that didn't happen. Boston versus Miami was postponed due to lack of available players because of COVID protocol. The Celtics were ready to play even though they were missing nine guys.

But then Miami was like--

- (SINGING) Hold my beer!

JARED QUAY: Because they couldn't even fill an eight-man roster. The league has said it has no plans to pause the season, but they already have no fans. And some teams don't even have no players. Meaning the NBA Finals might look like this.
