Travis Kelce steps up big: The star tight end finished his divisional-round bout with the Jaguars with a career-high 14 receptions from 17 targets for 98 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

Haason Reddick racks up the pressure: On the field for 24 snaps as a pass-rusher, Reddick registered a sack, a hit and five hurries against the Giants.

Cam Taylor-Britt turns heads: The second-round cornerback saw six targets in coverage but allowed just three catches for a mere 20 yards. He didn't allow a single first down and made two key plays — one a drive-ending pass breakup against Gabriel Davis, the other a game-ending interception.
