Consider this the final divisional primer. This year’s NFL Divisional Round games did not include two teams that made 11 such appearances in the previous decade – the Patriots and the Saints. Today’s final two games of this round match up teams who staged a comeback win over the Bills (Houston) facing an opponent (Chiefs) that will be looking to avenge a 31-24 home loss against the Texans earlier this season in one contest. Meanwhile the Packers carry a five-game streak into their game against the Seahawks who win in Philadelphia last weekend. While Green Bay has turned “winning ugly” into its team motto, it is still a matchup of the only two QBs in in NFL history – a Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers – that own career QB Ratings of more than 100. Meanwhile Deshaun Watson will look to take advantage of a Kansas City defense that surrendered 5.0 yards per rush to quarterbacks this season. To read more on a preview of these two games click here.
