The Jaguars play close to the Blueprint, and still lose. The Chargers lose their top offensive players to injury, and somehow win. The first part of this week's Audibles tries to make sense of a world where Norv Turner is coaching in a conference championship game.

Our AFC preview tries to figure out whether the Jaguars and Chargers can do anything to prevent yet another sanity-destroying Pats-Colts hypefest. Answer: Probably not. Plus, a long discussion of teams that either improved or declined significantly at midseason.

The Packers and Seahawks know each other well because of their similarities. The Cowboys and Giants know each other well because of their division rivalry. Who moves on to the NFC Championship? It all may depend on injuries and hot pants. Plus: Jason Beattie's latest cartoon!

Will Carroll is back to look at the divisional round of playoff games. How did the week off help this week's home teams? Which superstar may play this weekend after all? When injured Green Bay cornerbacks cover injured Seattle receivers, is it like football in slow motion?

It's been a much-overused word this season, but after watching 20 hours of game tape, Mike Tanier has a developed a blueprint for beating the Patriots. He swears it's foolproof. Has he discovered the secret to stopping the Patriots, or has he lost his mind? Judge for yourself.

This week, Matt Hasselbeck wants the ball and he wants to score (again), Ellis Hobbs' reveals a surprisingly deep persecution complex, and numerous Redskins fans vow to never return to Seattle after being pelted by dead bird. Plus: it may be our last Week in Herm, folks, so let's go out with a bang!

One player stood out above all others in the Chargers' wild card weekend win over the Titans, and it was not the first player you'd expect. Linebacker Shaun Phillips had a big game, a game we examine in this week's Every Play Counts.

Here are weighted DVOA ratings, updated through the wild card round. Seven of the eight best teams according to these ratings are still in the postseason, with the Giants way, way down below -- even though their win over Tampa Bay had the best single-game DVOA of the weekend.

The way to beat the Giants is to stop the run, take away the deep pass, and make Eli Manning beat you with precise throws, right? The Bucs tried that but were thwarted by Manning, who was exceptionally accurate. Meanwhile, a fierce pass rush and a banged-up Joey Galloway combined to shut down the Tampa Bay offense.
