Patriots to Host Colts in Divisional Round

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

With the Bengals collapsing against the Chargers, the Patriots get to square off against the Colts.

Yesterday, the Indianapolis Colts fielded the second largest comeback in playoff history, coming back from being 28 down to the Kansas City Chiefs, to win by one point.

Today, the Cincinnati Bengals completely deteriorated (read: Andy Dalton was turrible) against the San Diego Chargers.

The next round in the AFC playoffs will show the Colts visiting the New England Patriots and the Chargers visiting the Denver Broncos.

Good news for Patriots fans: the Bengals and Chiefs both fielded defenses much better than the Colts.

Bad news for Patriots fans: the Colts defense is still the 9th best in the NFL (the Patriots rank 10th).

The Patriots 3rd ranked offense (one point behind the 2nd ranked Bears) look to have the advantage as the Colts field an average unit that ranks tied for 14th.

The Patriots (8-0 at home) and the Colts (5-3 on the road) will be like old times. The Patriots can win against any team, while the Colts have wins against the Seahawks, 49ers, Broncos, Chiefs (x2). Neither team shows any quit.

The Patriots will host the Colts on Saturday at 8:15 pm.

As for the Broncos, the other three AFC playoff teams are responsible for their three regular season losses.
