- The Divisional round of the NFL Playoffs begin Saturday, as the Indianapolis Colts visit the Kansas City Chiefs. Then, the Dallas Cowboys take on the Los Angeles Rams. Sunday, it’s the Los Angeles Chargers against the New England Patriots, and finally, the Philadelphia Eagles meet the New Orleans Saints.
- Two star quarterbacks are getting all the attention, but the key matchup Saturday afternoon might be between the Chiefs defense and Colts’ offensive line. The Chiefs tied for the most sacks in the league, while the Colts’ o-line surrendered the fewest this season.
- Two of the league’s top running backs will square off at the LA Coliseum Saturday night. To pull an upset, Dallas’ plan seems simple. On offense, feed Ezekiel Elliott. On defense, find a way to stop the Rams’ Todd Gurley.
- Weather could be the deciding factor Saturday afternoon in Foxborough. No snow, but frigid temperatures are in store when the Chargers meet the Patriots. The Pats are 10-2 in home playoff games under 30 degrees in the Brady era, and the game time temperature is forecast at 29.
- After the Saints walloped the defending champions 48-7, the Eagles fell to 4-6 and all but out of the playoff picture. Since then, Philadelphia has won six of its last seven, including an upset squeaker in Chicago last week. Last year’s Super Bowl MVP, quarterback Nick Foles, is one reason Philly’s gone streaking.
