Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, and New Orleans Saints teammates Drew Brees and Cameron Jordan each had the strength to come through during a key moment and contribute to playoff wins on Wild Card Weekend.
Thanks to those strong performances, each player is up for Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week honors. Here's a deeper look at the significance of those conquests:
