NFL Conference Round
No doubt, all four teams that won had a post season bye – won in the Divisional Round. Ironically, none of the Wild Card teams have moved on for the sixth consecutive year.
Now, we know all of the top four seeds are moving onto the Conference rounds. So, some facts to consider before the games this weekend are the following:
- Andy Reid has won 2 out of 3 regular season games against the New England Patriots. However, the Patriots handed the Chiefs their first loss of the 2018 season with a score of 43 – 40.
- Did you know that the New England Patriots has never reached the Super Bowl after losing the year before? As you know, they lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in last year’s Super Bowl. So, based on that fact; should we anticipate the Chiefs to knock off the Patriots?
- Andy Reid is 1 – 4 in the NFL Conference Rounds from his time with the Philadelphia Eagles. Will his luck change with the Chiefs?
- Also, the Los Angeles Rams allowed 5.1 yards per carry in the regular season?
