For the first time in 13 years, neither Tom Brady nor Aaron Rodgers reached the preliminary round of the playoffs.

Not a problem. The NFL still has plenty of exciting football matches this weekend featuring Patrick Mahomes, Galen Hurts, Josh Allen, Joe Burrow, Dak Prescott, and many other superstars.

The action kicks off on Saturday with the Jacksonville Jaguars visiting the Kansas City Chiefs. Jaguars coach Doug Pederson confronts his mentor, chairman coach Andy Reid. Pederson played with and coached under Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City. He also beat him to the Lombardy Cup.

The No. 1 seed Chiefs (14-3) come from a bye and aim for their fifth straight trip to the AFC championship game.

The Jaguars (10-8) weren’t supposed to be here. They won five straight games to capture the AFC South, then had to come back from a 27-0 deficit against the Los Angeles Chargers in a wild game. Trevor Lawrence followed up four first half interceptions with four touchdown passes as Jacksonville won 31-30 again.
