Colts and Cowboys advance in wild-card games

The Indianapolis Colts, as Seattle pulled in by a Wildcard in the Playoffs in the first round, and significantly fewer problems than Dallas. Philip Rivers and the Chargers (12-4) are making their first post-season appearance since 2013, but were held to a season low in points in their last meeting with the Ravens (10-6) - a 22-10 loss last month. One of those teams probably has a better chance of winning than the Colts would. Let's take a look at their path to the Super Bowl.

This means if the Texans (No. 3) beat the Colts (No. 6), then Houston would travel to Gillette Stadium next Sunday.

Indy split its two games against the Houston in the regular season. The NFC North champions are in the playoffs for the first time since the 2010 team won the division. Can the Colts win for a second time at NRG Stadium in one season?

It bears repeating that this game is taking place in Arlington, TX, where the Cowboys were 7-1 this season. And remember, Houston needed overtime to defeat the Colts in their September 30 matchup.

Prescott made undoubtedly the most spectacular run of the night, with the Cowboys clinging to a 17-14 lead and facing a third-and-14 from the Seattle 17-yard line and the two-minute warning approaching.

Solskjaer confident over Sanchez fitness ahead of Tottenham clash
Asked what Solskjaer told him, Chong added: "He said enjoy it, get on the ball, try and get a few touches and enjoy the game". Spurs are one of the contenders for the Premier League crown this season, but we seem to have a swagger on the pitch now.

Note that teams earning a bye week for the first round-the Chiefs, Patriots, Saints and Rams this season-are not paid for that week. Kansas City is next-to-last in both passing yards and total yards allowed per game. That would be interesting to see.

Here's what New England Patriots fans should know about the team's upcoming opponent in the Los Angeles Chargers.

Regardless of who they played, the Colts would nearly assuredly be the underdog.

Prescott, the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2016 when the Cowboys lost to Green Bay at home as the top seed in the NFC, threw for 226 yards and had a 1-yard sneak for what appeared to be a clinching score before Tyler Lockett's 53-yard catch set up a quick Seattle touchdown.
