The Divisional Round was largely panned by most critics after it was played due to the high number of blowouts.
There was 31-13. And 41-28. But we also got 20-14 (that could've very easily been 21-20) and 30-22. Not all was lost. Exciting football was played, despite what they might want you to believe.
The most exciting of all? Well, the players of course. Let's get on to the unstoppables.
Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints
Thomas is the best receiver on the Saints by a gigantic margin. It's so wide, you can't see the other side.
Also considered ...
C.J. Anderson and Todd Gurley, Los Angeles Rams
We could attempt to choose one of these running backs, but their statistics are too close. Anderson rushed 23 times for 123 yards and two touchdowns, while Gurley ran 16 times for 115 yards and a touchdown in his first action in nearly a month.
If one had to debate who was the greater contributor in terms of in-game impact, it's Anderson. The, um, rounder back was a wrecking ball, especially in short-yardage situations on must-have downs. His two touchdowns weren't trots into the end zone, but full-steam-ahead barrels into paydirt. It was almost as if each time Anderson ran through a defender, everyone in the Los Angeles Coliseum -- which was almost evenly filled by Rams and Cowboys fans -- felt the impact.
Dallas felt it, and went home with a loss as a result. It's too fitting that their mascot is a Ram.
Sony Michel, New England Patriots
Michel was the ground-game embodiment of a totally dominant first half on the part of the Patriots. New England imposed its will on the Los Angeles Chargers on both sides of the ball, and Michel led the way in the rushing department, racking up 105 yards and three touchdowns before we'd even hit intermission.
Michel received a lesser workload in the second half, finishing with 129 yards and the three scores on 24 carries. His efforts established who was the better team early, though, and also made some rookie history, finishing with the most rushing touchdowns by a rookie in a single playoff game in NFL history.
