COLTS at CHIEFS
Kansas City has a score to settle, specifically, 10-7. That was the tally when Indy upset the Chiefs in the '95 divisional playoffs. To knock off K.C. again, the Colts will need to clamp down on the two-headed rushing attack of Marcus Allen and Greg Hill.

PATRIOTS at COWBOYS
Will New England quarterback Drew Bledsoe and the league's highest-scoring offense (27.8 points per game) riddle Dallas's top-rated defense? More likely his counterpart, Troy Aikman, will bombard a Patriots D that is 28th in sacks and 29th against the pass.

49ERS at STEELERS
San Francisco quarterback Steve Young's grueling season continues with a turn against the AFC's most punishing pass rush. Fullback William Floyd (two rushes for two yards on Sunday) must come through if the Niners are to snap Pittsburgh's 11-game winning streak at Three Rivers Stadium.

BUCS at VIKINGS
Tampa Day coach Tony Dungy s young defense, which has given up the fewest yards per game (259.9) since Week 9, will try to cool off Minnesota quarterback Brad Johnson, who has tossed seven TDs and zero interceptions in his last two games.

BILLS at DOLPHINS
Class of '83 quarterbacks Jim Kelly of Buffalo and Dan Marino of Miami duel one another for the 21st time in a regular-season game. Kelly & Co. hold a 14-6 series advantage.
