NFL Playoff Likability Rankings: Luck's Colts are so stinkin' awesome

5 monthes ago   |   By Sportsnet

When it comes to this weekend's Divisional Round, we've broken down the Super Bowl chances, key matchups and X's and O's for each team involved. But there's another, much less scientific, way of assessing a team: how likable are they?

Come back with me to that postseason, when the New England Patriots won the AFC East behind the strength of one of the league's best offenses, one that was so good it camouflaged a smoke-and-mirrors defense that ranked 31st in yards allowed per game on the way to a 13-3 season and a Super Bowl appearance. The Patriots had Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, but they hadn't beaten a single team with a winning record all...
