The playoff picture in both conferences was shaken like a snow-globe in an earthquake on Sunday afternoon as two developments from the late games may very well determine this January's playoff seedings.
First, in San Francisco, 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo left the game with a broken foot that will reportedly sideline him for the rest of the season, significantly dampening the hopes of a major playoff contender. In that game, the 49ers beat the Miami Dolphins, bumping the Buffalo Bills atop the AFC East. Paired with the Cincinnati Bengals beating the Kansas City Chiefs in the afternoon's other marquee matchup, suddenly Buffalo jumped from the fifth to the first overall seed in a matter of hours.
Charles Robinson & Frank Schwab react to all thirteen of Sunday's games from around the league including the aforementioned injury to Garoppolo, the Joe Burrow's Bengals rounding into Super Bowl form yet again, the Minnesota Vikings holding off the New York Jets, Deshaun Watson's return to football in Houston and Lamar Jackson's ill-timed knee injury.
0:20 Miami Dolphins 17, San Francisco 49ers 33
10:15 Kansas City Chiefs 24, Cincinnati Bengals 27
18:40 New York Jets 22, Minnesota Vikings 29
