NFL Divisional Round: Preview and Analysis for All 4 Games

Wild Card Weekend was fun, and almost surprisingly, every home team won. That means every wild-card team is out (Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Detroit and Atlanta) and all eight division winners are still alive.

Three of the four upcoming games represent rematches of regular-season games, the exception being the Saints-49ers matchup.

The Patriots defeated the Broncos, 41-23, in Week 15 behind Tom Brady's 320 passing yards and three total touchdowns.

The Ravens topped the Texans, 29-14, in Week 6 after outscoring Houston 13-0 in the fourth quarter.

The Packers squeaked by the Giants, 38-35, in Week 13 thanks to a last-second, 31-yard field goal by Mason Crosby.

But if the playoffs have proven one thing over the years, it's that nothing is guaranteed.

Stats are just stats, and the past is just that. Neither should hold weight for teams gunning toward the conference championships.

The Divisional Round is next up, and this slideshow previews each game.
