But the 13-3 Saints are 8.5-point favorites to advance in the playoffs with a victory at home today. Even last week in the win at Baltimore, the Chargers squandered early chances to blow the game wide open. I attended that game and when the Mariota touchdown happened, I turned to my brother and said, "Here comes the implosion".
"How in the world do you bet against Drew Brees?".
"We are focused on whoever we play next". For one thing, the Saints embarrassed the Eagles during the regular season, 48-7.

It's so good that I feel like no matter what I say, the opposite will occur. "We were confident coming into this game that we could do it". They have a future Hall of Fame Quarterback in Drew Brees, a Head Coach that has won a Super Bowl, a solid defense and they can run the ball. "So I know this is a weapon that we'll use to continue going".
A lot of the pre-game chatter regarding this Colts-Chiefs clash is centering on All-Pro quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Patrick Mahomes, but those expecting a 42-41 shootout could be in for a disappointment. Besides the Chargers haven't been playing great as of late offensively.
"I think that we're just seeing an awesome combination", Saffold said.
The NFL could move one of the two games to Monday as the league has confirmed in the past should the Giants and Jets both host Championship games. However, I was very pleased with the Rams advancing as they're my one Super Bowl future ticket purchased this season and it's nice to be alive heading to the National Football League version of the Final Four.
The Saturday free play worked out nicely as UNC Greensboro got the best of Furman.
With this bowling ball of a running back making such consistent gains against the vaunted Dallas front, Los Angeles was able to put the offense in cruise control and really wore down their opponent. The Rams ended up with two running backs with 100 or more yards on the ground to top the Cowboys and its fifth-ranked rushing defense. All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh both had outstanding games, but the Cowboys blamed themselves for their inability to establish a consistent rushing attack, particularly against the Rams' run defence, which had been spotty.
"The defense recognized it more than even we did as an offense", Jennings, now an analyst for Fox, said of the imbalance.
But we're getting ahead of ourselves.
Anderson joined the Rams last month as an emergency fill-in for Gurley, who injured his knee and missed the final two games.
The Denver Broncos split games with the Chargers in 2018. Third cornerback Charvarius Ward and safety Jordan Lucas, who is starting in place of the injured Eric Berry, have played well over the past couple of games.
If the Kansas City Chiefs could have designed the way they will enter the AFC Championship Game, they would have drawn up their 31-13 divisional-round win against the Indianapolis Colts. With quarterback Dak Prescott having fumbled 12 times this campaign, it could be a long evening for the Cowboys if their talented offensive line fails to prevent Donald from being his usual disruptive self.
