The Seattle Seahawks’ season may be over, but that doesn’t mean Enemy Reaction is going away! We’re going to be recapping the rest of the 2019 NFL Playoffs, with game thread screenshots aplenty. All four home teams won, but only the New Orleans Saints had any serious difficulty with their opponent, so we’ll save the best for last.

Usually I populate Enemy Reaction with the highlights of the games, but I have 23 screenshots and that just seems like a gateway to a browser crash, so as a minor tweak, I’ll just link to them in the headings. Besides, you’re really here for angry fans, and many of you are clearly won over by my main picture choice.

Let’s go!

Now we’ve reached conference championship weekend. It’s the Patriots at Chiefs in what’s expected to be the coldest game in Arrowhead Stadium history, while the Rams rematch the Saints in New Orleans. I have a feeling that Falcons fans might go into hiding for several weeks if there’s a Patriots-Saints Super Bowl in their stadium.

(Don’t get me started on how I’d feel if a Patriots vs. Rams Super Bowl materializes. That’d put me in the unenviable position of rooting for New England.)

Thanks for reading and go ‘Hawks!
