NFL Divisional Saturday
This is my favorite weekend as we prepare for the Divisional round of the playoffs and get NFL football both Saturday and Sunday.
New Orleans at Seattle 3:30pm – These two teams met back in Week 13 with the Seahawks rolling over the Saints 34-7. This will be the second time these two have met twice in one season, last time being in 2010 when New Orleans beat Seattle in the regular season at home 34-19. The two met again in the first round of the 2010 playoffs in Seattle and the Seahawks advanced in the playoffs by beating the Saints 41-36. The Saints have lost the last two meetings in Seattle, so today we will see if they can break the streak.
Indianapolis at New England 7:00pm – The last time these two teams met in the post season, Peyton Manning was the QB for Indy. This time Andrew Luck is in his second season with the Colts and has already had a playoff win against Kansas City in a second half comeback that no one thought could happen. Now Luck tests his luck against a New England team that is no stranger to winning playoff games with Tom Brady tossing the football. The last time these two met was back in week 11 of the 2012 season, New England shocked Indy by beating them handily in a 59-24 loss. Indy is currently on a 3 game losing streak in New England. The last time Indy won in New England was in Week 9 of the 2006 season, so today will be the test to see if they can break the streak as well.
