Trying to secure a wildcard spot was crucial to the match-ups this weekend with the strong surviving. The Kansas City Chiefs, Pittsburg Steelers, Seattle Seahawks, and the Green Bay Packers beat out the Houston Texans, Cincinnati Bengals, Minnesota Vikings, and the Washington Redskins. With these match-ups, it created tension and adrenaline pumping action to try and secure a win to the next round.
With that being said, there was no question when it came down to deciding who was the play of the week. This week’s play of the week belongs to a 10-yard touchdown reception from Ben Roethlisberger of the remarkable Pittsburgh Steelers to Martavis Bryant. This 10-yard catch was not your typical touchdown reception catch within the end zone, in fact it was more like watching an acrobatic gymnast trying to earn a perfect score within their routine and having their whole life depend on it. The control that Martavis Bryant had on his body as well as the football was of such unity, that they were inseparable at that precise moment. It was simply a thing of beauty, in this aggressive sport. Sure, wide receivers are supposed to have control over their body and handling the ball, but this takes it to a whole new level.
