Yes, I know that the Packers-Saints writeup is next to Bears-Vikings. No, that's not our bad.
The text should say:
"Chicago's offense is second in the league in the first quarter and then is never better than 20th; Minnesota's defense is 17th in the league in the first quarter and then never drops below tenth.
Inside the red zone, the Bears' defense is 25th in the league against the pass, but second-best against the run. Surprisingly, Minnesota's offense is only 25th at running the ball inside the 20. "
This year's update to the playoff drive stats show that the football gods may have been on Peyton Manning's side this time. Also: Cam Newton and Alex Smith enter the mix, and why we should be comparing Andrew Luck to Dan Marino.
