What Patriots fans need to know about wild card weekend

Patriots Divisional Round Opponent Predictions

Let's take a look at their path to the Super Bowl.

This means if the Texans (No. 3) beat the Colts (No. 6), then Houston would travel to Gillette Stadium next Sunday.

Another unit that excelled for Indy was their offensive line, which surrendered the fewest sacks in the league this season. The road team, however, won both matchups. We'll see. The Colts' win at Houston on December 9 jumpstarted the four-game winning streak that led to the Colts making the playoffs.

Colts star quarterback Andrew Luck has sliced the Texans defense for an average of 431.5 passing yards this year. The most spectacular scene of the game here was ultimately the decisive one.

While the Colts have a great offense (5th in points), the Chiefs No. 1 rated offense is markedly better in terms of points scored per game. Kansas City is next-to-last in both passing yards and total yards allowed per game. That would be interesting to see.

The Patriots, meanwhile, will face the victor of the game between the No. 4 Baltimore Ravens and the fifth-seeded Los Angeles Chargers.

That's because less than a fifth of the tally sheets from around the country have reached the commission offices in Kinshasa . Regional observers have said the vote went relatively well given the organisational challenges.

Still an incredibly young team, I don't think anyone expected the Colts to be in the playoffs this season, but here they are about to face a very talented Houston Texans team, led by the surging Deshaun Watson and a dominant defense.

Running back Ezekiel Elliot rushed for 137 yards and the go-ahead touchdown, becoming one of two second-year standouts for the Dallas Cowboys to pick up his first playoff victory, 24-22 over the visiting Seattle Seahawks in an NFC wild-card game Sunday.

Just 24 hours ago, Colts WR TY Hilton showed up NRG Stadium rocking a clown mask in response to Texans CB Jonathan Joseph calling him a "clown".

Regardless of who they played, the Colts would nearly assuredly be the underdog.

Philadelphia at Chicago, 4:40 p.m., EST.

In the quarter-finals, the Cowboys are fighting next weekend against either the New Orleans Saints or the Los Angeles Rams in the first Playoff semi-final since 1995.
