What a fantastic first weekend of NFL playoffs, huh?
It might be a long time before we’re again treated to three heart-pounding post-season games like that in a 27-hour period.
The number might have been four had Andy Dalton not forgotten how to quarterback in the Cincinnati Bengals’ ugly 27-10 homefield loss to the streaking San Diego Chargers.
But that was the key on the weekend, wasn’t it: Quality quarterback play.
The four teams that won -- Indianapolis, New Orleans, San Diego and San Francisco -- all got it. At least in the second half, when it mattered.
On Saturday, the Colts’ Andrew Luck and Saints’ Drew Brees both struggled in the first half. Luck’s woes actually continued deep into the third quarter.
