MEXICO – The wild card weekend has given us good emotions on Saturday and Sunday.

In total, four teams qualified for the "Divisional Round" and four others have already started their holidays.

With some surprises, the crosses for the playoff division round were defined. ESPN Digital

WERE DEFINED THREE MARSHALL OF CAMPO

Deshaun Watson, Mitchell Trubisky and Lamar Jackson made their debut in the playoffs. The three accused of defeat.

The best of them was Trubisky, who pitched for over 300 yards, with a touchdown pass and no turnover. We could say that it was not for him that the Chicago Bears lost the game.

On Jackson, it must be said that the post-season game was great.

He is a player used to solving complicated moves with his legs and who suffers too much when the spaces are closed.

Jackson brought the ball nine times for a total of 59 yards, being the best player on his team on the ground.

On the plane, the quarterback barely reached 194 yards, although he finished with two touchdown passes.

Far from that explosive version, Jackson ended up being whistled by his own audience.

Lamar Jackson finished with 14 completions in 29 attempts with an interception and was fired seven times. Getty Images

WON THREE TEAMS VISITED

the Indianapolis Colts, Los Angeles Chargers and the champions of the Philadelphia Eagles have won their respective matches, proving that in this championship the locality does not have a weight like in other sports.

THE BEST DEFENSES WERE OUT

The two best defensive units in the points allowed, Chicago and Baltimore Ravens, who in the regular season allowed less than 18 points per game, could not stop rival attacks. Both are already on vacation.

THE IMPORTANCE OF A KICKER

In almost all 32 NFL franchises, the local kicker is the player who earns less money.

This position is so despised that it does not pay much attention to looking for someone very reliable.

This Sunday showed the importance of having a kicker in a place of trust.

Mike Badgley of the Chargers scored five field goals to score 15 of his team's 23 total points.

Meanwhile, Cody Parkey from Chicago failed a field goal attempt with 8 seconds left when his team lost 1 point.

The two extremes, the victory and the defeat in the leg of the player of the lowest salary.

THE LAST SEMI ADVANCED

As you all know, the six best teams in each conference advance to the postseason. The last of that seeding is theoretically the weakest.

This weekend, Indianapolis – with his victory over the Texans – and Philadelphia – who defeated Chicago – advanced to the division round from the sixth place in the respective conferences and at least in the case of the Colts have potential to get a bit of more.

DAK CAN ALSO LOAD THE TEAM

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has finally had a round performance.

In total, he added 226 passing yards, a touchdown pass and a touchdown touchdown.

Prescott seems very comfortable in commanding the Cowboys' offense. Last week he launched four touchdown passes against the New York Giants, but the best thing is that in that game did not have the support of runner Ezekiel Elliott.

THE MAGIC OF THE FOLES

The veteran quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles remains in a state of grace.

The Super Bowl Most Valuable Player had enough performance to command his team at another post-war victory.

Despite casting two interceptions, Nick Foles managed to lead the victory in Philadelphia.

As in the Super Bowl, the Eagles played in fourth place and the touchdown was reached, this time with a move to Golden Tate.

The question is pertinent: how long will that magic last?
