Rams advance to NFC championship game; will Saints join them?

They were also tops in passing yards per game and yards per play in the L.A. Coliseum. Philly went 6-1 after that loss, but Wilson is not sold they'll prevail in the rematch, especially given how closely the Eagles squeaked by Chicago last weekend.

That January week off is coveted for a variety of reasons. The Saints also have the advantage of playing at home, in perhaps one of the best atmospheres in professional sports. Healing injuries is a critical piece of the puzzle. They played their best defensive game of the season, forcing the Colts to go three plays and punt on each of their first four possessions. "We didn't get any movement".

The Dallas Cowboys come into this game with a defense that has been one of the best all year. Add in a veteran Quarterback in Phillip Rivers and you have a team that has everything it needs to make a Super Bowl run. "There's a good buzz in the building this week building into Saturday night".

With this bowling ball of a running back making such consistent gains against the vaunted Dallas front, Los Angeles was able to put the offense in cruise control and really wore down their opponent. First, there is the six seed Indianapolis Colts who few thought would get out of Houston.

The Indianapolis Colts were outplayed both offensively and defensively as the Kansas City Chiefs booked a slot in the AFC Championship game with a 31-13 win.

So what if Neil Young was correct that rust never sleeps?

"It's been a long time coming", Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said. "We're locked in now". They're first in the National Football League in scoring and in yards per play, and have shown no signs of slowing down even without Kareem Hunt in the picture. The second-year cornerback has become a hugely important player for the Colts the past couple of games and he had a monster game against the Chiefs on Saturday. They are on quite a roll from going 1-5, with an efficient offense that protects its quarterback better than any team, allowing sacks on only 2.7 percent of Andrew Luck's passes.

The victory was a big confidence boost for the Chiefs, particularly on defense.

Republican rebellion against Donald Trump's border wall shutdown stance gathers pace
Trump's desire for a wall between the United States and Mexico was a central theme of his 2016 presidential campaign. This was the third meeting at the White House between Trump and congressional leaders over the impasse.

But the channels broadcasting National Football League playoff games today on TV are free even if you don't have cable.

Finally, our projections have Brees pegged for 309.16 passing yards, giving him nearly a full 20 yards on his passing prop.

Patrick Mahomes threw for 278 yards while running for a touchdown.

"This is where Dallas's season ends".

The Denver Broncos split games with the Chargers in 2018.

This is surprisingly my favorite game this weekend. Kansas City's stoppers have gotten a lot of negative attention this season, but they've surrendered just 18 points per game at Arrowhead Stadium.

Anderson racked up 123 yards on the ground on 23 carries, helping significantly lighten the load for Gurley. The Patriots are near flawless at home and the Chargers are near ideal, 8-1, on the road. There is concern about leading rusher Melvin Gordon, who hurt his knee in Baltimore.

Worth focusing on: The secondaries. He endured the childhood disappointments, and the playoff losses while he was starring in high school and at Northern Iowa. I recommended taking over 41 and the Chargers +3, and the number landed on 40. However, Philly hasn't forgotten that Nick Foles didn't play in that game.

The defending Super Bowl champions are eight-point underdogs on the road, according to OddsShark. This time, with Wentz sidelined again, Foles got the struggling Eagles into the postseason, then helped them beat the Bears in the wild-card game. They have lost four out of five to Drew Brees and his men.
