Mark Zinno: A ‘Wild’ Weekend In The NFL
Gregg Doyel of CBSSports.com joined Zinno on “Last Call” to discuss the Wild Card playoff round. The Cincinnati Bengals lose in the first round again for the third consecutive year. Andy Dalton played poorly, but Doyel says that not reason to blow uo the team. “We’ve seen bad football here in Cincinnati. This is not bad football.”
Andrew Luck was nothing short of impressive in the Colts comeback win over the Chiefs. Erasing a 28-point defecit was a minor miracle. “Luck has that ‘it’ thing. His players believe it,” Doyel said. He continued that Luck has amazing leadership and that’s a big thing for a kid that young.
In the NFC, the Saints win over the Eagles in the cold was a big upset. “The Saints are so coddled at home,” Doyel said. “For them going on the road and win that game, in Philadelphia. Really surprising.” The 49ers are also looking great with Colin Kaepernick after their win in Green Bay.
