Last ... This weekend's Eagles-Saints matchup will be the first playoff game in NFL history between teams that finished last the previous year. Deuce McAllister and the Saints improved from 3-13 and last in the NFC South to 10-6 and first. Brian Dawkins and the Eagles improved from 6-10 and last in the NFC East to 10-6 and first in the division.

7 ... The Chiefs seven first downs in a 23-8 loss to the Colts were the fewest ever in a wild-card game and equaled the third-fewest in playoff history. If not for a 12-yard pass from Trent Green to Michael Bennett with 4:26 left, the Chiefs would have tied the record.
