With the divisional round of the playoffs this Sunday, fans will see their share of hotly contested battles and heart-stopping games resolved just as time expires. Which team is most likely to pull out a tough win on the road?
The Indianapolis Colts are currently riding high after taking down the Kansas City Chiefs with the second-largest comeback in NFL playoff history.

A few years ago, a wide receiver from Florida International made waves by tearing through the Louisville Cardinals defense en route to a career season for the Panthers.
