Saturday Wild Card Round Review

Posted: January 5, 2009 in Football Talk

Well, the Wild Card Round is over and for those who didn’t see it, here’s what happened.

On Saturday, the Atlanta Falcons visited the Arizona Cardinals in the first game. The Cardinals pulled away early and took a 14-3 lead but the Falcons fought back and made it 17-14 at the half. Kurt Warner threw an amazing flea flicker bomb to Larry Fitzgerald, then gave the ball to Anquan Boldin on a beautiful pass for a 71-yard score. Boldin injured his hamstring on the play, with no word on his recovery.  They scored two more touch downs in the third to make it 28-17, then got a safety. The Falcons scored again but were not able to win as their season ended with a 30-24 loss. The Cardinals will take on the Panthers in the next round.


The second game was the Indianapolis Colts at the San Diego Chargers. The Colts took a 7-0 lead but the Chargers scored two touchdowns to make it 14-10 at the half. Then the Colts got another TD and a last minute field goal tied it at 17 going into overtime. When the Chargers got the ball they gave it to Darren Sproles who took  it for a 43-yard touchdown to win it. The Chargers will take on the Steelers who will have Big Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday afternoon.
