Historical facts are as entertaining to NFL fans as the games they watch, so take a look at some of these fun facts regarding this weekend's festivities, and thanks so much for viewing this little slide.
Bengals versus Texans: Did you know that the Bengals are 0-7 against playoff challengers? Not to worry too much, though; the Bengals have also run for more than 100 yards in nine straight games, and this upstart squad has tremendous potential, so there is a glimmer or hope.
Steelers versus Broncos: The last time these two teams met in the playoffs was in 1995. The Broncos were the No. 2 seed and the Steelers were the No. 6 seed. The Steelers went on to win that contest handsomely, 34-17.
Saints versus Lions: The Saints were "born" in 1967, while the Lions were "born" in 1933...so why is this important? Well, because aside from this game being billed as the game of the weekend, these two teams have never met in postseason play. Quite the interesting build-up to an already potential monumental matchup, wouldn't you all say?
Falcons versus Giants: Probably the most boring collective history here (sorry fans), but there are some interesting tidbits to bite on, nonetheless. The Giants lost the NFL's first Championship game in 1933 to the Chicago Bears, 23-21.
Similar to the Saints-Lions matchup, these two teams have never met in postseason play.
I hope you guys found this piece informative and fun.
