Divisional Rounds

The divisional round almost always contains just one road win. That varied in 2015 with all home teams and then in 2016 with a very unusual split between road and home venues. It got back on track last year. Only one team that had a bye and home field cannot capitalize on that advantage.

Championship Rounds

This is why home field is so important and why the Patriots do so well in the postseason. Each of the last five years witnessed all home teams win. 2012 was an extreme outlier with both visitors winning, but pushing all your chips on home teams for the last five years paid off 100%.
