After the first weekend of playoff games, it's easy to say home field doesn't mean much. Maybe not, but I'm going to give more credit to the teams that were traveling than affix blame to the teams that couldn't protect their own turf.
This coming weekend may be no different. Pressure changes players, coaches, teams, game plans, etc., and this weekend the pressure gets turned up one more notch. The Vikings, Jets and Rams all showed they can respond to the pressure and raise their games. They also have a game under their belts and some decent momentum to take with them on the road this week.
Road teams enjoyed a lot of success in the wild-card round. Can they keep it going this weekend?
