NFL Divisional Round Recap: Saints End Foles’ Magic

Monday, 14 January 2019 / Published in Bookie Tips

Nick Foles likely played his last game as a Philadelphia Eagle while the Saints, Rams, Patriots, and Chiefs all marched to their respective conference championships in awesome displays of NFL football over the weekend.

Hopefully, pay per head agents made out like gangbusters. There was no other football played this past Saturday and Sunday. Check out a recap of four terrific games before getting into a short preview of next Sunday’s AFC and NFC Championships.

Saturday, Jan. 12

Indianapolis Colts 13 at Kansas City Chiefs 31

The Indianapolis Colts headed to Kansas City with a ton of confidence. The Colts had been playing great towards the end of the regular season. That great play had carried over into their fantastic 21-7 victory over the Houston Texans. Unfortunately, the win over the Texans didn’t translate into doing much of anything against the KC Chiefs.

The 1-seed in the AFC Playoffs dominated Indianapolis. The real key was how the Chiefs’ defense kept the Colts from moving the football. The Chiefs beat the Colts on their defense’s back. That should strike fear into New England Patriots’ fans.

Dallas Cowboys 22 at L.A. Rams 30

The Los Angeles Rams played well, but they by no means dominated the Dallas Cowboys. In fact, the outcome might have been different if the Cowboys hadn’t screwed up a 4th and 1 in the second half. Only down by 8, the Cowboys decided to rush the ball right through the teeth of the Rams’ defense. Ezekiel Elliott couldn’t get the nose of the football past the down marker.

The ball went back to the Rams, who subsequently drove it for a score against Dallas’ defense. Los Angeles did cover by a single point, but the performance wasn’t anything close to what Rams’ fans wanted to see from their team.

Sunday, Jan. 13

L.A. Chargers 28 at New England Patriots 41

Many felt the Chargers had the best chance of beating the home teams during this past weekend’s NFL Divisional Playoffs. Los Angeles had looked fantastic when taking down the Baltimore Ravens on the road during Wildcard Weekend. But, LAC was doomed from the beginning.

The Patriots rushed out to a 35-7 halftime lead. The Chargers had no answer for the cold. Mentally, they weren’t prepared at all. The offensive line seemed to give up against New England’s pass rush while the defense played its worst game this season.

L.A. ran back home with its tail between its legs while the mighty Patriots have already started preparations to take on the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium next Sunday. New England looked every bit the dynasty they’ve been pretty much since 2001 when Tom Brady and Bill Belichick became the most successful coach/quarterback duo in NFL history.

Philadelphia Eagles 14 at New Orleans Saints 20

The score implies the Eagles kept it close, and they did. But, at the end of the day, this game was about a single great quarter from Philadelphia and domination by the Saints on both sides of the ball the rest of the game.

Philly rushed out to a 14-0 first quarter lead. After that? The Saints dominated. New Orleans provided one of the most boring but effective drives in the history of NFL Playoff football when eating up over 13 minutes in their first second half drive. That set the tone for the rest of the game.

After Marcus Lattimore picked off Nick Foles on the Eagles’ final drive, the stake was in the champs’ heart.

NFL Conference Championships Preview

New England and Kansas City will battle in next Sunday’s AFC Championship. The Chiefs took on the Patriots at Foxborough in Week 5. The game was a classic with Brady and the Pats pulling out a big 43-40 win. It makes no sense not to use your layoff account in this game because nobody can predict who takes it SU or ATS. That’s how close both these teams are in terms of talent.

Sounds crazy, but you might want to consider not using your layoff account when the Saints host the Rams in next Sunday’s NFC Championship. The Rams didn’t look great in spots against the Cowboys while the Saints turned it on after getting rid of the rust they incurred during the layoff. New Orleans should show more energy in the first quarter versus the Rams than they did against the Eagles.

Saints could roll to an easy win and cover. If Rams are over bet, consider not using the layoff account.
