NFL Wildcard weekend has been a fun ride, as per usual, filled with tough defense and a few phenomenal plays. The Indianapolis Colts took care of the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday afternoon, meaning a matchup between Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos and his former team.

If Green can’t go, the pressure might double for the Bengals to win their first postseason contest since 1990.
