How Twitter reacted to the opening games of the NFL playoffs

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday the NFL kicked off the 2017 playoffs with the opening two Wild Card games. Fans were treated to one of the largest second half comebacks in playoff history when the Tennessee Titans overcame an eighteen point halftime deficit to the Kansas City Chiefs to start things off, and that was followed by a slugfest between the Los Angeles Rams and Atlanta Falcons in which Dan Quinn’s squad won in a way that looked a lot like the type of game the Seattle Seahawks used to win a lot of.

In any case, with Andy Reid dropping yet another playoff game where he had the lead in the second half, Andrew Whitworth apparently bringing some of the Cincinnati Bengals one and done mojo with him to Los Angeles and Marcus Mariota throwing a touchdown pass to himself, Twitter was ablaze with all kinds of kinds.

Thus, without making you wait any further, here were some of the reactions on Twitter to the opening of the playoffs and the ending of the season for two more NFL clubs.

First, to some reactions to the Titans and Chiefs game:

And now for some reactions to the Falcons holding the highest scoring offense in the NFL to just 13 points in their 26-13 victory.

That’s just a sampling of the action from Saturday, and with two more games on tap for Sunday, the magic and fun of the NFL playoffs continue for another four weeks.
