BATON ROUGE – Twenty former LSU football players will look to move a step closer to the Super Bowl this weekend when the NFL holds its divisional playoff round.

Play starts with two games on Saturday followed by a pair of games on Sunday. Saturday’s early game has Joe Burrow and the Bengals traveling to face the Titans at 3:30 p.m. on CBS. Last week, Burrow and fellow Tiger Ja’Marr Chase led the Bengals to their first playoff win in 31 years when Cincinnati beat the Raiders.

The Bengals-Titans game will feature seven former Tigers – all members of LSU’s 2019 national championship team. The list includes: Burrow, Chase, Tyler Shelvin and Thaddeus Moss for the Bengals along with Racey McMath, Kristian Fulton and Tory Carter on the Titans.

On Saturday night, Arden Key and the 49ers face the Packers at 7:15 on FOX. The Packers are the only NFL playoff team without an LSU player on their roster.

Sunday’s two games feature 12 former Tigers with the Rams-Buccaneers game at 2 p.m. CT on NBC showcasing seven LSU players. The defending Super Bowl Champion Buccaneers have five Tigers on their roster – Leonard Fournette, Devin White, Kevin Minter, Rashard Robinson and Cyril Grayson. The Rams feature 2003 LSU national champion Andrew Whitworth and Odell Beckham Jr.

The final game on Sunday has the Chiefs hosting the Bills at 5:30 p.m. on CBS. Five former Tigers will be in action in that game - Tyrann Mathieu, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams for the Chiefs and

Reid Ferguson and Tre’Davious White for the Bills. New LSU defensive coordinator Matt House is the linebackers coach for the Chiefs.

The Ferguson brothers are a great story. 2 brothers, same position, same school. I keep telling my step son learn to long snap, but it’s not a “cool” position for an 8th grader:”.

That guy just seems like an NFL player. It may be a decade of special teams, but with his body and attitude I suspect he’ll be in the league for a long time. Wish we could have used him more in some capacity.
