What Are the Saturday Wild Card Matchups? NFL Twitter Reacts To the Start of Super Wild Card Weekend

Finally, the regular season is done and 14 teams are getting ready to chase their championship hopes. Who kicks off the action of Super Wild Card Weekend?

Super Wild Card Weekend Saturday Matchups

Seattle Seahawks @ San Francisco 49ers

The first matchup of this year’s playoffs is between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers. The Seahawks are travelling to Santa Clara to visit Levi’s Stadium and keep their Super Bowl hopes alive.

However, a strong 49ers team has something else to say. The 49ers field probably the best defense in the league paired with an offense with a bevy of weapons. Oh, and their offensive play caller is Kyle Shanahan.

This matchup kicks off at 1:30PM PST and also kicks off the start of playoffs. Let’s us see how Twitter reacted to this matchup when it was announced earlier.

A lot of 49ers and NFL fans in general feel that the Seahawks have no chance of winning as they’ve already lost to the same team twice in the regular season. However, others feel that this could be a trap game since Seattle is playing with house money.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Jacksonville Jaguars

The second game of the day is being hosted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in Jacksonville, FL. The Los Angeles Chargers will make a cross country trip to show the country that they are not just a regular wild card team.

The Chargers were forced to the 5th seed after the juggernaut Kansas City Chiefs locked up the division early. However, with a healthy Keenan Allen and Joey Bosa, the Chargers team is primed to pull off an upset.

On the other hand, the Jaguars with second year quarterback Trevor Lawrence, finally made the step out of irrelevance and into the spotlight. The Jaguars will be looking to be the dark horse contender this season out of the AFC.

This matchup kicks off after the earlier game at 5:15PM PST. Let us see how Twitter reacted to this game.

Jaguars fans are ready to break their long postseason drought with a win and so are Chargers fans.

However, some Chargers fans are upset that they will be without their WR2 Mike Williams.
