Championship Rounds

Considering that these pit the best records in the NFL at home against lesser teams, the incidence of a home team winning is very high. The last two years saw both home teams win and overall 70% of the time the home team wins. 2012 was a freakush year with both road teams winning. But it is bankable that at least one home team will win and usually both.
