I have been told that behind the scenes Shula had Rozelle's ear concerning a "wild card" team making the playoffs. How appropriate that his team got the first one.
Background given.....this story concerns a continuing saga....there has been AT LEAST ONE ROAD VICTORY EVERY YEAR since the inception of the Wild Card in 1970. So, who are the road warriors this year?
Last year was unique in that all four road teams won in the Wild card round, and then all six home teams won the rest of the games.
In closing, in honor of both Don Shula (birthday is tomorrow), and Chuck Noll, his birthday is Wednesday who he also took his Steelers to the playoffs numerous times ....look forward in the comments section as to who wins on the road this year?
