The Bobby Valentine Sport Show: Episode 36

Hello everybody and welcome back to another episode of The Bobby Valentine Sport Show. I’m your host Frank Ramppen, and the divisional round of the NFL playoffs has come to an end. Let’s do the weekly recap on the divisional round of the playoffs. Jump right into it.


The divisional round was much better from a competitive standpoint than the Wild Card round. In the Wild Card round, five of the six games in super Wild Card Weekend were multiple score finals, so only one game really came down to the wire. That was a one-score game in Detroit between the Lions and the Rams. This week, three of the four games were one-score games, much closer and more competitive.


First game on Saturday at 4:30 on ABC and ESPN was between the Baltimore Ravens and the Houston Texans. I don’t know why, but I had a random feeling all week last week that the Texans were going to pull it out. For 30 minutes, it looked like that was possible as they went into halftime 10-10. Steven Sims had a punt return touchdown in the first half, which was the only score of the game for the Texans. The eventual score was 34-10, with Lamar and the Ravens coming out and scoring three touchdowns on three consecutive drives in the second half. The Ravens move on to the AFC Championship game.


Saturday night featured a great game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers. The 49ers outlasted the Packers 24 to 21, making it our game of the week. It was an unbelievable game, and the Lions beat the Bucs 31-23. The Lions had a grip on that game until the very end, where Baker and the Bucs made a last-second push. However, an interception at the end clinched it for the Lions. The Chiefs beat the Bills 27-24 on Sunday night in the third playoff matchup between Mahomes and Josh Allen. Mahomes came out on top yet again, and Josh Allen and the Bills were still unable to beat the Chiefs. It was another unbelievable, instant classic game between those two quarterbacks.


Now, moving on to the play of the week for the divisional round was a wild play in the game between the Bills and the Chiefs. Late in the third quarter, the Bills were leading at halftime, 17-13. However, the Chiefs came out strong in the second half, scoring a touchdown with Travis Kelce to make it 20-17. Here, late in the third quarter, it was third and goal for Josh Allen and the Bills from the 13-yard line. Despite pressure, Josh Allen rolled to his left and made a ridiculous off-balance throw to Khalil Shakir, who got the feet down inbounds for a touchdown. It was an unbelievable throw and catch, making it the play of the week. Although the Chiefs ended up scoring again, with a final score of 27-24, the Bills fell short for the third time in the playoffs against the Chiefs.


Unfortunately for the Bills, they were unable to beat the Chiefs for the third time in the playoffs. But that connection between Josh Allen and Khalil Shakir was an unreal highlight for the second week in a row. Last week, it was in the divisional round, with two plays of the week. One was Josh Allen’s 52-yard touchdown against the Steelers, and the other was Khalil Shakir’s wild play to keep his balance and score. Two weeks in a row, Josh Allen to Khalil Shakir is the play of the week. It was an unbelievable effort from them, and Josh Allen had a great game. Every time he plays against the Chiefs, it’s a great game, but they fell short again, sending the Chiefs to the AFC Championship game.


As mentioned in the preview, we’re moving on to our game of the week. This game comes from Santa Clara between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers. The game had instant classic written all over it.
