The home teams lose three out of four games this weekend.

Sunday's wild card games gave us two more road teams moving on to the divisional round of the playoffs. The San Diego Chargers, who were underdogs by a touchdown, beat up the Cincinnati Bengals 27-10 behind a strong running game and a very good defensive effort.

The San Francisco 49ers got a field goal from Phil Dawson as time expired to beat the Green Bay Packers 23-20 in a game that went back and forth.

After the weekend, only the Indianapolis Colts won at home.
