The first week of NFL playoffs is in the books with six games taking place. There were plenty of storylines to follow such as Joe Burrow looking to make history in Cincinnati. The Bengals hadn’t won a playoff game in 31 years. Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase had other ideas on this day as they were victorious in their first playoff game in the NFL.
