NFL Super Wild Card Weekend will kick off on Saturday. There will be two games on Saturday, three games on Sunday, and one game on Monday night. There are some teams that have no pressure heading into the playoffs and there are certain teams that are under immense pressure to get the job done. Which teams have the most pressure in the NFL to win this weekend?
Los Angeles Rams
This is the football team by far that has the most to lose. They gambled their entire future to win a Super Bowl at Sofi Stadium in Inglewood, California this year. They traded away Jared Goff for Matthew Stafford and Sean McVay got to a Super Bowl with Goff. They also added pieces like Odell Beckham Jr. and Von Miller. The Los Angeles Rams would be the biggest failure if they can’t get past this round also.
Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills have no excuse to lose to the New England Patriots at home. Buffalo is way more talented than New England is. This is the time for the Bills to say this is our AFC East and we are here to rule it for years to come. The Buffalo Bills are never going to hear the end of it if they lose. They were just in the AFC Championship Game last year.
If the Dallas Cowboys lose, they are going to hear the heat because of head coach Mike McCarthy and quarterback Dak Prescott. They were 6-0 during the regular season in the NFC East, but they were just 6-5 outside of the NFC East. Dallas has the talent to go all the way, but when there are expectations, there are always disappointments. They have a hit-or-miss defense. Dallas has playmakers on both sides of the football. They should be in the NFC Championship Game at the very least.
Other teams under pressure: The San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs.
