The NFL Divisional Playoffs are halfway done this year, and the top seeds in each conference have moved on.

In the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles pulled off the odd home upset over the sixth seeded Atlanta Falcons 15-10. Both teams struggled to move the ball on a cold and windy day in Philadelphia, but the Eagles defense put together a stand on the goal line late in the fourth quarter to preserve the win.

The top seeded Patriots blew out the Tennessee Titans 35-14 tonight in Foxborough. New England got off to a sluggish start, and the upstart Titans led 7-0 after the first quarter. The Patriots caught fire on offense in the second quarter. The Titans made big mistake after big mistake, and the official made several suspect calls in favor of New England at key points that stalled any momentum the Titans could have build.

The Patriots and Eagles will host the two Conference Championship Games next Sunday against the winners of tomorrow’s games.
