After a season when any of the numerous injuries could have derailed the team, the New England Patriots will be hosting a Divisional Round game as the No. 2 seed in the AFC. The Patriots will be hosting the Indianapolis Colts, who are coming off one of the greatest comeback wins in NFL history in last weekend’s Wild Card round. The Patriots have reached the AFC Championship Game in each of the past two seasons and are hoping to playing in the Super Bowl for the second time in three seasons.

During New England’s bye week the reserve price could have been purchased at as low as $180, even though the Patriots had a record of 7-2. The price has since shot up and trails only the Denver Broncos for most expensive reserve price in the AFC.
In order for the Patriots to get to the Super Bowl, they must first defeat Andrew Luck and the Colts this weekend. Last week, against the Kansas City Chiefs, Indianapolis erased a 31-10 halftime deficit to win 45-44 and advance to the next round. If New England wins, they will either have to travel to Denver to face Peyton Manning and the Broncos or get to stay home and host the San Diego Chargers. Of those three teams, the only one New England played during the regular season was Denver, who the Patriots beat in overtime, although that game was in Foxborough.
Some Patriots fans might not have expected to be at this point with all of the players lost to injury over the course of the season, but fans now can reserve the right to see this team play in another Super Bowl with two more wins.
