After looking at the results, there are zero surprises. The two "upsets," which constitute a lower seed beating a higher seed, were expected. Drew Brees throws for 500 yards and the Saints (a 5 seed) beat an injury-ravaged Pittsburgh Steelers (a 4 seed). Since this is a Texans website, I would have been greatly disappointed if the Rams did not beat the Cowboys. Good job, everybody. You all deserve a gold star and a pat on the back for making sure Dallas loses in the first round. The second round brings better match-ups and games most people would actually enjoy sitting down to watch.

If this type of playoff switch occurred, the second round would be the best weekend in sports because of the quantity and quality of the games. The second round would serve a voluptuous slate that would include a Manning Bowl, Fail Mary rematch, Vikings-Ravens slugfest, and divisional rematches between the Saints-Falcons and Texans-Colts. Below is the second round and the link for you to make your picks.
