You again? It begins with the Colts hosting the Chiefs on Saturday. At night, in the only first-round game not involving teams that faced each other this season, New Orleans is at Philadelphia.
Nick Foles and Philadelphia’s high-scoring offense needed a little help from the defense to make sure it was the same old sad ending for Dallas.
