Another divisional round, another Saturday home game for the Patriots

January 12th, 2018

For the sixth time in seven years, the Patriots will be hosting a divisional-round playoff game on a Saturday. With the conference championship games always landing on a Sunday, the AFC team that wins on Saturday has a one-day advantage over the AFC team that wins on Sunday. “We spotted those a–holes a day and a half,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said of the Patriots in the infamous Facebook Live video shot in the locker room after the win over the Chiefs.
