1 -- Of the eight remaining playoff teams has a negative turnover margin this season -- Minnesota (-10).
3 -- Consecutive losses in the Divisional Playoffs by the Eagles, dating back to a 31-16 victory against Minnesota on Jan. 3, 1981.
4 -- Touchdowns of 25 yards or longer scored by the Giants in two games against the Eagles this season. The Eagles' defense allowed only four TDs of 25 yards or longer in their other 15 games combined counting the wild-card game.
5 -- Times the NFL's top two defenses have met in the playoffs. The Titans, who allow 238.4 yards per game, and the Ravens (247.9) will make it six Sunday. The last time was a 1985 NFC Divisional Playoff game in which the Chicago Bears (No. 1) defeated the New York Giants (No. 2) 21-0.
7-1 -- The record the Vikings posted in home games and the Saints posted in road games this season. The Vikings play host to the Saints on Saturday.
8 -- Record for consecutive playoff games with a TD reception, held by Pittsburgh's John Stallworth from 1978-83. Vikings wideout Randy Moss has caught touchdowns in four consecutive games.
11-4 -- Oakland's all-time record in Divisional Playoff games -- the most wins by any AFC team in the round.
13 -- Times since 1970 that a team swept a season series over a division foe and then met them again in the playoffs. The three-peat was completed eight times, with the most recent example being the Titans against the Jaguars in 1999. The team that was swept in the regular season came back to win the playoff game five times.
20 -- Turnovers committed by the Raiders this season, second-lowest in the NFL. Their opponent Saturday, the Dolphins, have turned the football over 11 times in their past four games, including three in the wild-card victory against the Colts.
33:48 -- The Titans' league-leading average time of possession. Right behind them at No. 2 is their opponent Sunday, the Ravens (33:19).
50 -- Receptions for 715 yards and seven touchdowns by Vikings wideout Cris Carter in 11 career playoff games.
82:25 -- The Giants' time of possession out of a possible 120 minutes in two games against the Eagles. Philadelphia only held the ball for 37:35 in the two losses.
100 -- Points allowed by the Dolphins' defense in the Divisional Playoffs the past two years, losing 38-3 to Denver in 1999 and 62-7 to Jacksonville in 2000.
