It’s going to be a good weekend for football. There are great match-ups across the board and anything could happen when it comes to the playoffs. There are currently two six-seeds in the race and both have a really good possibility to pull off the upset. The Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles are teams that have nothing to lose. It took both teams the last week of the regular season to get into the playoffs and then both teams took care of business on wild card weekend. As for the Los Angeles Chargers and the Dallas Cowboys, they have better odds to pull off a win. Both teams feeling confidence from their latest wins against two teams who have proven that they could have also made a deep playoff run.
The Indianapolis Colts and the Kansas City Chiefs is the game that is must watch. Kansas City hasn’t yet established themselves in the Andy Reid era when playing in the playoffs. They are winless and haven’t won a home playoff game in twenty-five years. The Indianapolis Colts Quarterback, Andrew Luck, has proven that he can go onto the road and win a playoff game. Highlight wins were games like last week at Houston and back in 2014, when he beat the Denver Broncos. It’s going to be a fun game, two teams with talented Quarterbacks, looking to prove that they are one of the top elite Quarterbacks in the league.
Colts have won as many postseason games at Arrowhead Stadium (2) as the Chiefs have all time.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 12, 2019
Last time Chiefs won home playoff game was 25 years ago, when Joe Montana led them to a victory in 1993 wild-card round, at a time when Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill weren’t born yet.
The Philadelphia Eagles and the New Orleans Saints meet again. The Eagles look for revenge against New Orleans after the Saints dominated the defending super bowl champs on week eleven, 48-7. The difference in this game, Quarterback Nick Foles will behind center instead of the injured Quarterback Carson Wentz. This isn’t the same Eagles team that was on the field on week eleven. They have executed their game plans effectively and their level of play has been taken to the next level. The Saints have been a little shaky lately. They are still the best team in the NFC but have had some slow starts in the last couple games of the regular season. If they start off slow Sunday, the Eagles could shock the world.
I've got Chiefs, Cowboys, Patriots, Eagles this weekend don't @ me.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) January 11, 2019
As for the other two games happening over the weekend, they are going to be dog fights. Those games can be decided by what team causes that one turnover throughout the course of the game. For the Eagles and Colts, I believe one of those teams will come out of this weekend victories. I’ll say the Colts have the best chance to win but no one would be shocked if the Eagles come out on top. All four games this weekend are going to be fun to watch. This is, in my opinion, the best weekend in football.
