Andy Reid used to be unbeatable after a bye week; he won his first 16 games with the Eagles when he had an extra week to prepare, going 12-4 against the spread during that stretch. But from his final year in Philadelphia to now, he's just 4-4 straight up and 3-5 ATS after a bye, though the league has scheduled him on the road after every regular-season bye with the Chiefs. The Colts' offense just rolled up 200 yards on the ground against DVOA's best rush defense and now gets to play DVOA's worst rush defense. Throw in Andrew Luck and I can't see the Colts getting blown out.

The Cowboys have the rushing attack to give the Rams fits, but I'm not sure they'll be able to stick to it for 60 minutes. While their defense has played well this year, five of the seven times they've given up at least 350 yards to the opposing offense have come on the road. The Rams have topped 400 yards of offense in all but one home game (a paltry 377-yard showing in Week 17), and with Todd Gurley having three weeks to rest his knee, I think the L.A. offense will look more like what we saw before their bye. The line is in the perfect spot, but my lean is to the favorite.

The Patriots are tough at home, especially in the playoffs and especially in the divisional round, where they're 11-1 straight up and 7-4-1 ATS. But even though this year's team went 8-0 at home, they just don't look nearly as crisp as they have in the past, with Rob Gronkowski seemingly on his last legs, Tom Brady making more small mistakes here and there and the defense struggling against teams that can run the ball. The Pats are just 1-4 when giving up 150 rushing yards, and the Chargers should enjoy getting this defense after playing the Ravens twice and the Broncos in their last three games.

I think this is the game the clock finally strikes midnight on Nick Foles. The Saints absolutely pasted the Eagles back in Week 11, and Sean Payton is 10-1 ATS after a bye since 2009. I expect he'll have the offense on track here and take advantage of the Eagles' secondary in a way Mitch Trubisky couldn't consistently. Foles didn't play all that well in his team's win in Chicago, but he came up big in the fourth quarter when the Eagles needed it. I'm not sure the Saints give him the chance to play the hero at the end of the game here.
