Every year under the current NFL playoff format at least four teams made the postseason that didn’t the previous year. That streak continued in 2018 with a bang as a whopping seven new teams will compete for the Super Bowl: the Baltimore Ravens, Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Los Angeles Chargers and Seattle Seahawks.
Just a reminder that in this weekend’s wild card round, the division-winning third seed in each conference hosts the No. 6, and the division-winning fourth seed hosts the No. 5. The top two seeds in each conference are on the bye.
The first game of the weekend is Saturday afternoon and an all-AFC South affair as the No. 6 Colts visit the No. 3 Texans, who are 1-point favorites. The teams split two very entertaining games during the regular season, each winning by a field goal on the road. Indianapolis has covered three of the past four overall in the series. A Colts upset would send them to Kansas City. Houston would visit New England with a victory.
