The 2017 NFL Playoffs start today with the most forgettable matchup possible. The Texans who had the lowest DVOA in the AFC South host the Raiders who will be starting their third string quarterback. The winner of this game will have the honor getting destroyed by the New England Patriots next weekend unless the Dolphins pull off an upset over the Steelers tomorrow.
The Seattle Seahawks who won the worst division in football this year play host to a Detroit Lions team that somehow managed to make the playoffs despite generally being below average to very below average.
