Unfortunately, the 2019 NFL Playoffs no longer include the Seattle Seahawks. They were the only road team to lose this weekend despite scoring the third-most points, and were also the only team to have a higher EPA/dropback and lose. Had they beaten the Dallas Cowboys, they would’ve played the Los Angeles Rams for a third time. Instead, the Cowboys get the Rams, while Golden Tate’s game-winning touchdown and Cody Parkey’s agonizing double-doink miss send the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles down south to take on the New Orleans Saints.
Over in the AFC, the Indianapolis Colts eased past the Houston Texans 21-7 to confirm their spot against the Kansas City Chiefs, while the Los Angeles Chargers held off a furious rally by the Baltimore Ravens to book their ticket to Foxborough for a showdown with the New England Patriots.
Here’s next week’s schedule.
