The Eagles are finally living the Cinderella dream and will miraculously win through for a Super Bowl repeat!
That's the most ever allowed in the post-season by the five-time Super Bowl champion Cowboys, who were playing in their NFL-record 63rd post-season game. Based on the simulation, this could be a great back-and-forth game between the two quarterbacks. Mahomes has had an awesome first year as a starter and they have weapons all over the place, but the defense can be run on and that can be a tough obstacle to overcome at playoff time. Elliott managed just 47 yards on 20 carries as Dallas lost for just the second time in its last 10 games. Along with the prolific nature of the Indianapolis offense, the Colts' draw a nice matchup against a subpar Chiefs secondary.
Mahomes didn't throw a single touchdown pass on Saturday. He also rushed for a crucial first down late in the fourth quarter to ice the game.
With this win, fans now know the team can win at home in the playoffs and that's huge. But with all of the flip-flopping that we saw in the wild card round, is this enough to blindly back the Saints?

LA Chargers QB Philip Rivers is 0-7 against Tom Brady in his career. Despite producing back-to-back division titles for the first time in almost four decades, both coach and quarterback knew the results that matter most are those produced in the playoffs.
Coming into Saturday night's game, Los Angeles' defense had heard quite a bit about how it was the team's biggest weakness. Running back Marlon Mack set a single-game postseason rushing record for the Colts last weekend by tallying 148 yards and will hope for similar success against a Chiefs defense that ranked 27th against the run in the regular season. A 3-5 start this year with a sputtering quarterback and offense had the Cowboys looking like also-rans again. After all, he went a ideal 4-0 over Wild Card Weekend and is on a stunning 55-31 roll on National Football League against the spread picks. They are confident, confident that they are the best team still alive in the National Football League playoffs.
