The Divisional Round of the 2014 NFL Playoffs produced 4 more memorable games and we'll recap them all as we look back on Saturday and Sunday's football matchups. So far the NFL Playoffs have been fairly predictable with 3 of the 4 teams receiving first round byes making it to their respective championship games, although the San Francisco 49ers continued to win on the road as they pulled the upset against a Carolina Panthers squad that beat them during the regular season. Let's take a look back at the Divisional Round of the 2014 NFL Playoffs as we recap the games.
New Orleans Saints 15
Seattle Seahawks 23
The Saints did all they could do to hang with the Seahawks but eventually the home field advantage and the 12th man were too much to overcome. New Orleans did some things well to slow down a Seattle offense that hasn't looked impressive in recent weeks but fell short despite a successful onside kick late in the game against a team that's defense was simply too tough to crack.
The Turning Point: This game wasn't over until the final play of the game when Marquez Colston lost his mind. Instead of going out of bounds to set up a final play, Colston attempted a lateral that went about 10 yards in front of him which cause a game-ending penalty and killed any chance the Saints had of completing their comeback effort.
Indianapolis Colts 22
New England Patriots 43
Indianapolis was a bit lucky to even advance to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs after falling behind big to the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round and their luck (no pun intended) finally ran out against the Patriots. The Colts' defense was just a mess of late and even without some key pieces missing from New England's offense the team never had a chance.
The Turning Point: It seems this game was over before it began thanks to Indianapolis' defensive problems. New England isn't a great rushing team but the Colts managed to matador their opposition to 234 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns on the ground in the losing effort.
San Francisco 49ers 23
Carolina Panthers 10
The final score here really doesn't indicate how close this game was between two of the best defensive teams in the NFL. Carolina actually outgained the 49ers in total yardage here but it was Cam Newton's 2 interceptions that helped the final score settle into double digit territory. San Francisco rushed for 126 yards here which has to be encouraging as they hit the road to play the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game.
The Turning Point: Carolina was looking strong in the early going but the 49ers put together numerous goal line stops to swing momentum in their favor. At one point the Panthers ran 4 straight plays from inside the 5-yard line and still couldn't get in for a touchdwon.
San Diego Chargers 17
Denver Broncos 24
San Diego took care of the ball and Denver didn't, but in the end it just didn't matter as the more talented team advanced to the AFC Championship Game. Denver gave up a fumble and an interception to help keep the Charger in it but a furious San Diego rally fell short and they were held under 300 total yards for the game.
The Turning Point: Denver was in control for much of the game and took a 17-0 lead into the 4th quarter. The Chargers scored immediately to start the frame and seemed to have the momentum in their favor until Denver put together a drive that led to a 3-yard touchdown run by Knowshon Moreno with 8 minutes left that put a comeback mostly out of reach.
