It is Super Wild Card Weekend and the college that has the most players on NFL Playoff Team rosters is none other than the LSU Tigers. The Tigers lead the way with 27 former LSU players on NFL playoff rosters.

The list of participants include 24 players that are on active rosters and three more players that are on injured reserve.

Headlining the list is former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Joe Burrow, who is the star quarterback of the Cincinnati Bengals, and Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson, who leads the NFL in catches (128) and yards (1,809).

Burrow and his sidekick Ja’Marr Chase will look to lead the Bengals to back to back Super Bowls as they begin their playoff march against former LSU linebacker Patrick Queen and the Baltimore Ravens.

The most intriguing NFL matchup featuring former LSU players is between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins as the playoff game will feature two former Tiger long snappers as brothers Reid (Buffalo Bills) and Blake (Miami Dolphins) will play against each other. The Ferguson brothers were LSU long snappers for eight consecutive years.

The tradition of NFLSU continues as it is guaranteed that at least one former Tiger will get the chance to represent LSU in the biggest game of all, which is the Super Bowl.
