A look at each playoff team’s record vs. the rest of the playoff field this season:— Field Yates (@FieldYates) December 31, 2018
* Bears: 2-1
* Chargers: 2-3
* Chiefs: 2-4
* Colts: 2-3
* Cowboys: 3-3
* Eagles: 3-3
* Patriots: 4-0
* Rams: 4-3
* Ravens: 1-2
* Saints: 3-1
* Seahawks: 2-4
* Texans: 2-3
There's a reason why the Saints are considered the best team in football and the Patriots are, well, the Patriots.
Patriots went 4-0 vs. playoff teams and 7-5 vs. non-playoff teams.— Ben Volin (@BenVolin) December 31, 2018
Also, Pats haven't played a playoff team since the Bears in Week 7 https://t.co/2jVRRH6TEU
This stat just proves how dominant the Saints are. As a team that has top-10 units on both sides of the ball, they're built to last against the top competition. They outlasted a defensive-powerhouse in the Ravens, outscored the high-powered offense of the Rams and slapped around the defending-champion Eagles.
Granted, everything is different once you reach the postseason, so we'll have to wait and see if the regular season was a representation of the future for the Pats and Saints.
