By Sunday afternoon Allen had found the man, he tweeted, despite several fans changing their first name to Dave to try to land the tickets, he joked.
That January week off is coveted for a variety of reasons. The Colts are the type of team that can win a low scoring game, plus they have the QB and weapons to win a shoot out. Extra time to strategize, particularly against an unfamiliar opponent, is a bonus. The Patriots maintain strong plus-550 odds to claim their third Super Bowl title in five years, but have managed to post against the spread wins just twice in their past four home playoff games when favoured by four or fewer points. 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. It's been a good chance for guys to kind of get refreshed, rejuvenated.
Well, all that bulletin-board material can be thrown out the window after what we witnessed on Saturday night in Los Angeles.
So many questions asked of Dak Prescott revolve around two years ago, when the Dallas quarterback led the Cowboys to an NFC-best 13 wins as a rookie before losing his playoff debut.
That contingency plan could be playing the game at the L.A. Coliseum where the Rams play their home games.
So what if Neil Young was correct that rust never sleeps? The Indianapolis Colts walloped the Houston Texans and the Los Angeles Chargers got their revenge on the Baltimore Ravens. "We're locked in now". Going away from Rivers, this Chargers team looked decent, but definitely not 100%.
Of course, keeping pace with Kansas City's dynamic offense led by All-Pro quarterback Patrick Mahomes is a major challenge.
But the channels broadcasting National Football League playoff games today on TV are free even if you don't have cable. He'd rush for only 47 yards on 20 carries and score one touchdown. The Cowboys wanted Earl Thomas in Dallas last season. That means top seeds will be in action as they host their first games of the 2019 postseason.
For our defense, as we are fading Gurley and the Rams WR's, we might as well go with the Cowboys who certainly have the talent on the defense side to give the Rams offense some trouble. That was a nine percent increase over the same time slot a year ago. Kickoff between Los Angeles and New England is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. ET.
Worth focusing on: The secondaries.
The rookie ended up leading all tacklers in the game, tallying 14 total, 10 solo and one for a loss of yardage. I'm going with New England.
They call him St. Nick around Philly, and the way Nick Foles has performed, why not? Paine, though, is paying close attention to the similarities - and differences - between the Eagles' magical Super Bowl run last season and the situation they find themselves in one year later, with Foles stepping in at quarterback again.
In the National Football League there are only two weekends that have four games spread over the two days but the Wild Card weekend can sometimes be boring.
The second game pits Philadelphia against New Orleans for the second time this season. Drew Brees has had perhaps the best season of his Hall of Fame-caliber career. This was the same matchup back in Week 11, a game that New Orleans won 48-7. I know that seems like a given with Brees behind center, but the Eagles are way back at No. 31 in passing defense while on the road and the Saints are even worse at stopping the air raid, taking the final No. 32 spot.
