#NFLMeanGreen Playoff Edition - Week One

Jan. 8, 2018

DENTON – The National Football League's wild card weekend is in the books, and MeanGreenSports.com has you covered following the first week of the playoffs with #NFLMeanGreen.

Two former Mean Green players' teams were in action during the opening weekend of the NFL playoffs, and one, New Orleans Saints linebacker Craig Robertson, has advanced to this week's divisional round. Running back Lance Dunbar's Los Angeles Rams were beaten 26-13 at home by the defending NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons, and Dunbar was inactive.

Robertson’s Saints knocked off divisional foe Carolina, beating the Panthers 31-26 in New Orleans. Robertson recorded five total tackles in the win. The win propels the Saints to the divisional round, where they will take on the Minnesota Vikings, who finished the regular season 13-3. New Orleans travels to U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis and kickoff is scheduled for 3:40 p.m. CT live on Fox.
