In the National Football League there are only two weekends that have four games spread over the two days but the Wild Card weekend can sometimes be boring.

On Saturday, in front of a boisterous, sold-out and star-studded crowd at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, McVay executed a masterful game plan in a 30-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys in their NFC divisional-round game.

Dallas' elite linebacking corps suffocated the Seattle Seahawks' run-heavy attack in Arlington last Saturday night, but key changes in venue and opposing personnel will be make it hard for the Cowboys to get past the Rams. It really ramps up during the division games. If you are looking for an online stream, it is available on fuboTV * a href="http://www.fubo.tv/lp/football/?bgvideo=nfl.mp4&title=Watch%20Live%20Football&subinfo=ON%20All%20YOUR%20Devices&priceline=*Regional%20restrictions%20apply&irad=356362&irmp=1205322" *(try it free).

That couldn't be further from the truth. However, Luck orchestrates a drive down the field and ultimately Jordan Wilkins runs it in for the one-yard touchdown.

The Chiefs didn't merely beat the Colts on Saturday, they used them as a launching pad. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins played for the first time since hurting his foot in November and made it through the game. For more play-action plays, James White is your guy. While this unit ranks 18th in pass defense, per our metrics, they allowed the most passing yards to opposing passers in the regular season (4,721) as teams tried to keep pace with Patrick Mahomes and company. The linebacker pounced all over the play and ripped the ball out of Watkins' arms.

It was Anderson who got the carry on fourth-and-goal with seven minutes left in the game, and he ran through contact at the line of scrimmage for the score that proved to be the difference in the game. They had eight takeaways in their previous 10 games. The Chiefs recovered and were never again seriously threatened.

The Chiefs had lost six straight home playoff games, including heartbreakers to Pittsburgh and Tennessee the past two years. I'm going with New England. That seems like eons ago, yet it was only last summer.

Starting off, we have the Indianapolis Colts heading to Arrowhead to face the Chiefs.

This match-up would bring 41-year-old Tom Brady up against Mahomes in what could serve as a passing of the torch from one generation of quarterback to the next. He also had two sacks on Patrick Mahomes and broke up a pass. The Chargers present a real challenge as they're talented all-around and also play very well on the road, but they're fighting against a whole lot of history here. But he did put together a tremendous all-around game and didn't turn the ball over, despite an injury that freaked fans out in a big way. "And it's not just any offense - it's McVay's offense". Williams was struggling to reach the end zone when teammates gave him a shove. Just ask this year's Alabama team.

Veteran backup C.J. Haislop and Iyer agree here, too, that Dallas has the edge over Los Angeles. Anderson rushed for a combined 299 yards in the final two games of the regular season, then provided a ideal complement to Gurley, pounding the ball Saturday to pick up 123 yards and two touchdowns against the Cowboys. He also punched in two rushing scores. It's 17-3 as Los Angeles commands this one at the half. This would be a hard-fought game, but I think the Saints pull out the win and secure their spot in the Super Bowl. QB Nick Foles has another comeback going, but I am not sure if it will continue. However, the key matchup for this game will be Aaron Donald against Dak Prescott.

By shutting down Dallas' biggest strength, the Rams were able to completely control the game. The Cowboys had scored on their previous possession and had just picked up a 20-yard completion to tight end Dalton Schultz.

"Feels good", Gurley said about the win and his knee.
