NFL Notes

January 4, 2019

The first game of the “12 teams to 8 teams,” NFL wild card round, matches the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans.

Last week, the Frank Reich guided Colts won at Tennessee (Titans), nee Houston Oilers, to qualify for the ‘offs.

Reich was the Buffalo Bills quarterback when they staged an incredible wild card round win vs the then Houston Oilers, in a 1992 wild card round game.

Last week Reich won a “win or be out of the ‘offs” game vs the same franchise, this week he and his team face the city, (in that city, Houston) Reich and the Bills overcame, in that ’92 season wild card round game.

If Houston wins the game, considered a virtual toss up, the Houston team would sojourn to New England for a division round Houston/New England tilt, 40 years later and in the same early Sunday “slot.”

Already, as mentioned as a possibility here last week, it is the Philadelphia Eagles at the Chicago Bears in the post-season, thirty years later.

Then it was in the division round’s first game, played in and won by “Chi” in heavy fog.

This week it is in the wild card round’s last game, with the (12-4) Bears, a near touchdown favorite vs the defending champion, (9-7) Eagles, whose quarterback Nick Foles, has again done a stellar job, after becoming the “Philly” Q.B.


Last season, Frank Reich pictured above as such, was an assistant coach with the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles under head coach Doug Pederson.

Both Reich’s new and last year’s team play on the road in roughly 4 P.M. Eastern Time starts in the NFL wild card round this weekend.
