Checkpoint: NFL Wild Card Weekend 2016 Edition

The Kansas City Chiefs @ Houston Texans game was a comedy of errors by the Houston offence — specifically at the quarterback position. It was also a snooze fest as the Chiefs routed the Texans 30 – 0. The second game? The Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals game was an ugly affair. The heavy rain didn’t help, the strong defences didn’t help but those two things paled in comparison to the cheap and dumb plays by both teams.

We witnessed two Steelers’ sideline coaches misbehaving and then we saw two Bengals’ defensive players implode and cost their teams the game. There’s no drama like NFL drama. I’m always surprised how some players lose perspective and fall into traps. How did these players not know that the Steelers were antagonizing them and hoping for reactions. It’s mind boggling.

Sundays games, with Seattle Seahawks @ Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers @ Washington Redskins, have their own story lines. I don’t know if the frigid weather will make a good game but it has to be better than the KC game. As for Packers and Redskins? I would like see Kirk Cousins to persevere and move onto the next round. I want to see at least one quarterback with no playoff experience win and I think Cousins and his team have the best shot to do so.

I shouldn’t be surprised by how good Ori and the Blind Forest is but I am. I love this game. Everything about it is cohesive and on point. I didn’t know if the “Metroidvania” aspect of it would wear out on me because I just finished Axiom Verge but it didn’t. I am actually on my way to collecting every little upgrade on the map.

I’m still chipping away at Xenoblade Chronicles 3D. Why won’t it end already?
