That was a good weekend of NFL Postseason football. There were historical comebacks, surprise wins and games that came down to the final play. What else could we have asked for in the first week of the postseason?

Saturday was one of the better days of postseason football in a long time with the Indianapolis Colts coming back from a 38-10 deficit in the third quarter to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs, 45-44 in the opening game.

That was followed with the New Orleans proving me and many others wrong that they could actually win away from the Superdome by defeating the Philadelphia Eagles, 26-24 with a last-second field goal by former Houston Texans kicker Shayne Graham.

Sunday was the surprise win with the San Diego Chargers defeating the Cincinnati Bengals, 27-10, keeping the Bengals without a playoff win since 1990.

The nightcap for Sunday saw the San Francisco 49ers defeat the Green Bay Packers, 23-20 with a game-winning field goal by Phil Dawson.
