The NFL Divisional Playoff Games Will Come Down To This
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The NFL's wacky wild-card weekend is in the books, and for those who need a quick refresher, it was an unprecedented couple of days. For the first time in playoff history, all four road teams won in either a wild-card or a divisional round. Two of those teams, Seattle and Pittsburgh, needed nothing short of a miracle to move on. The other two, Green Bay and Kansas City, were flat-out dominant against the wildly overmatched Washington and Houston.
With that in mind, here are the key factors to each game in round two.
Kansas City at New England -- 4:35 p.m. EST, Saturday (CBS)
The last time these two met was a Week 4 battle last season in which Tom Brady endured one of the worst losses of his career while throwing for a measly 159 yards and two picks. You know what came next. Expect something much different this Saturday, but don't rule out Andy Reid, whose red-hot Chiefs have rattled off 11 straight wins to become the first 1-5 team in 45 years to make the playoffs.
