AFC Wild Card Game #1

Kansas City Chiefs @ Houston Texans, Saturday January 8th 4:20pm EST

0231968001452007798_filepicker With the first weekend of NFL playoff action around the corner, we here at RealSport have taken to Madden NFL 16 to preview the upcoming action. This AFC Wild Card matchup pits the AFC South Champion Houston Texans and the AFC West Wild Card Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs come into the game red hot having won 10 straight, but face a revitalized Texans Defense that has turned its season around and has respectively won 3 straight games.

The Game

Without much of a surprise, the game was mostly a defensive battle. The Chiefs jumped out to an early 7-0 lead on the back of a 1st quarter 36 yard interception return. Kansas City was still ahead 14-7 with 1 minute to go in the 4th but that didn’t deter the Houston Offense from marching down the field and firing a 37 yard touchdown pass to even up the score at 14 all with 53 seconds remaining. The Chiefs couldn’t muster up an answer and the first playoff game of the 2016 season went to overtime. The Chiefs lost the all-important coin toss and with no surprise the Texans elected to receive. The Texans wasted little time in sealing the deal. The game ended on the first drive with a 54 yard TD pass (highlight below) to DeAndre Hopkins sending the Texans into next week’s Divisional Round Game and ending the Chiefs season. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dq813vZrJxQ&feature=youtu.be
