Super Wild-Card Weekend Start ‘Em: Defenses

Buccaneers D/ST at Football Team (Sat. 8:15 p.m. ET, NBC): The Football Team is the weakest team in the postseason field, winning just seven games in a terrible NFC East. Their offense has averaged just 20.9 points per game, worst among playoff teams, and their line has surrendered 50 sacks (tied for the second-most), and they’ve committed the fourth-most giveaways in the league.

Super Wild-Card Weekend Sit ‘Em: Defenses

Colts D/ST at Bills (Sat. 1:05 p.m. ET, CBS): The Colts fielded one of the top D/STs in the regular season, but a road matchup against Josh Allen and the Bills isn’t at all favorable. Their offense has averaged the second-most points (31.3 PPG), are tied for the third-most yards (396.4 YPG), and are tied for the 11th-fewest giveaways. I’d keep the Colts in the stables (in fantasy) in this AFC battle.
