The home team in the NFL Playoffs used to have an advantage in the Wild Card round.
But this year is just like so many others, seeing a majority of the road teams (wild card teams) pull off the upsets in the first round.
Three of the four Wild Card games this past weekend were won by the actual wild card teams. San Francisco went into Green Bay and defeated the Packers, the Saints went into Philadelphia and took out the Eagles, and the Chargers defeated the Bengals. The only home team to win was the Colts and they barely got past the Chiefs who were up four touchdowns at one point.
