BATON ROUGE – Twelve former LSU players advanced to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs and will be in action beginning on Saturday with a pair of second round games.

With at least one player on seven of the eight remaining playoff teams, LSU is guaranteed to have a Super Bowl participant this year. The only remaining playoff team without an LSU player on its roster is Philadelphia.

The NFL’s Divisional Playoff round gets underway with two games on Saturday followed by two on Sunday.

Saturday’s action begins with Jacksonville and former Tigers K’Lavon Chaisson and Arden Key traveling to face Kansas City at 3:30 p.m. Kansas City running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is out for the remainder of the season with an injury.

On Saturday night Cordale Flott and the New York Giants travel to face Philadelphia at 7:15.

Sunday’s matchup between Cincinnati and Buffalo features four former Tigers led by Heisman Trophy quarterback Joe Burrow and Biletnikoff Award winner Ja’Marr Chase. In last week’s 24-17 win over Baltimore, Burrow threw for 209 yards and a TD, while Chase caught nine passes for 84 yards and a score.

Buffalo’s roster features former LSU All-America Tre’Davious White at cornerback and long snapper Reid Ferguson.

The final game of the Divisional Round includes a pair of former LSU linebackers in Damone Clark and Jabril Cox for Dallas and running back Ty Davis-Price for the 49ers. All three players were teammates on LSU’s 2020 team.

Don't forget Joe Brady, former LSU OC who's currently the QB coach for the Buffalo Bills.

How many years in a row has an LSU player been on a winning Super Bowl team? Isn’t it like 22 or 23 and a record.

The only way a former tiger does not get a SB ring this year is if Philly wins the SB.

I know what team I’m cheering against.
