The Chiefs quarterback required very little time to take over his game and complete a blowout over the Steelers
there is a “monday night football“to be played, a historic playoff date, but here we are going to maintain the tradition of recognizing the best individual performances of Sunday action, with the exception that we will include the players who performed on Saturday during the Wild Card Round.
After playing five of the six games in the first round of the postseason, it is quite obvious our choice for the best, so far, in the Wild Card Round.
When it’s plugged in, nobody compares to the pin of the chiefs. In a matter of minutes, he took over the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and decided it definitively in favor of Kansas City with an explosive arm that has no similar in the NFL.

to the version of the chiefs what we saw today Arrowhead It’s enough to beat anyone in a half game. It is not only what we saw today before a limited cadre of Steelers, but what this team has shown us in the past.
At this rate, the only way for the chiefs don’t be champions Super Bowl LVI, is if for some reason, they don’t play to their full potential. From power to power, no one beats them.

Josh Allen. quarterback, Buffalo Bills. Clearly, Allen would have been a suitable pick as the man of the day, too. The Allen edition we saw directing the rout of the Patriots at Highmark, which included directing an offense that scored seven touchdowns on seven possessions, and went 21-for-25 for 308 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions, plus six carries for 66 yards, It was the best we have seen in a brilliant professional career, highlighting the last two years. Mahomes got the top pick, but by a razor-thin margin, and only because it takes so little time to turn a game around, with less defensive help. Buffalo’s game against New England was perfect in many ways, and there’s no denying that version of it looks invincible, too. The Bills will now visit the Chiefs in a game that we would have preferred for the Championship Game, wouldn’t we?
Mike Evans, wide receiver, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs had no problem dispatching the Philadelphia Eagles at home, and Evans was one of the main reasons. The dominant wide receiver caught nine passes for 117 yards with a touchdown, burning the Philly secondary left and right. With offensive performances of that caliber, there is no reason in Tampa Bay to remember Antonio Brown.
Jerick McKinnon, running back, Chiefs. Versatility is the best attribute when it comes to what made McKinnon shine for Kansas City this Sunday. He rushed the ball 12 times for 61 yards and caught six passes for 81 yards with a touchdown, becoming the wild card the Steelers weren’t prepared for … not that they’ve done much to stop more familiar weapons like Travis. Kelce or Tyreek Hill, of course.
Deebo Samuel, wide receiver, San Francisco 49ers. How to stop a player who does everything well? You don’t have to ask the Dallas defense. Samuel rushed the ball 10 times for 72 yards with a touchdown and caught three passes for 38 yards in San Francisco’s win at the Cowboys. The only question here is whether the Niners are really making the most of Samuel’s talent, or could use it more.
Devin Singletary, running back, Bills. A dependable running game in charge of the backfield is the one thing the Bills lacked to be considered a powerhouse, and Singletary provided that element on Saturday, rushing 16 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns. Allen still suffers from time to time ups and downs in his level of play, and that’s where Singletary must compensate for Buffalo to reach the ultimate goal.
