Some Last Thoughts On Divisional Weekend

As a loyal Patriots fan, I’m still in a haze after NFL divisional weekend. The last time I felt that stressed during a game was back in 2002 when the Pats beat the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI (it was soon after that game that gray hairs became a regular fixture on my head). This coming weekend, when the final four teams compete for the AFC and NFC Championships, is sure to be an entertaining one. However, before we move away from the events of Jan. 13-14, 2007, here’s a little piece detailing some of the interesting statistical and historic milestones/events from this past divisional weekend.

  • Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri (career stats) has scored in 19 playoff games, which ties him with George Blanda (career stats). We can be certain that ol’ “Automatic Adam” will have plenty of opportunities to set a new record against his former team this weekend in the AFC Championship game.
  • The Colts/Ravens game was only the fourth playoff game in NFL history where no touchdowns were scored. The last time that happened was back in 1980 when the L.A. Rams beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 9-0.
There are plenty of other similar facts covered in the article. A little warning to those of you who aren't New England fans, there are more than a few Patriots facts. On the other hand, for those of you out there who are New England fans, you'll find oodles of good stats and good times.
