9Bad blunders at the worst time

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Wild Card Weekend had a lot to offer NFL fans. Unfortunately for many of the players, that included some notable blunders.

A bad interception from Deshaun Watson helped the Indianapolis Colts down the Houston Texans in the postseason opener. Victories by the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Chargers left similar feelings for the Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens, their vanquished opponents. The Wild Card Weekend finale saw the Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Chicago Bears despite a horrible day from a key defender. An even worse day from Cody Parkey contributed to that. And in a theme that we hope doesn’t (but fear will) continue, the referees look baffled a little too often over the weekend.

The blunders have a tendency to really stick out in the playoffs. These were the eight most embarrassing blunders from NFL Wild Card Weekend.
