The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence
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.
