NFL Playoffs Preview

10 Jan 2019

The NFL playoffs now head to the divisional round after a wild Wild Card Weekend. The surprising Indianapolis Colts visit Arrowhead on Saturday--the Chiefs looking to win their first divisional playoff game since 1993. Later, in the Coliseum, the Cowboys play the Rams, LA making its first trip to the divisional round since 2004. The First Game also offers some interesting NCAAM matchups, including Louisville @ North Carolina, Ohio State @ Iowa, and Tennessee @ Florida.

Sunday's early game in Foxboro features two elite quarterbacks--Tom Brady and Philip Rivers. The Chargers' Rivers has lost all seven games he's played against Brady and the Patriots. In the late game, the Eagles go back to New Orleans for a rematch with the Saints. In November, Brees and Company drilled Philadelphia 48-7.

Three Big Ten basketball games are in the Second Game mix, along with Big East, West Coast, SEC, and ACC action. Wednesday has two marquee NBA matchups--Raptors @ Celtics and Pelicans @ Warriors--and the GridCard concludes on Thursday with the 76ers @ the Pacers and MSU @ Nebraska.
