The divisional round of the 2014 NFL playoffs continues Saturday night with an AFC matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the New England Patriots. Let's get you caught up on everything you will need to know. Use this as an open thread to discuss Saturday night's action.

Colts (12-5) at Patriots (12-4)

Game Time: 8:15 p.m. ET
TV: CBS (Greg Gumbel, Dan Dierdorf, Allie LaForce).
Radio: Westwood One -- Ian Eagle, Trent Green, Tony Boselli; Sirius: 88 (WW1), 92 (Ind.), 86 (NE). XM: 88 (WW1), 225 (Ind.), 86 (NE).
Odds: Patriots -7.5

The Patriots won at least 10 games for the 11th consecutive season, joining the San Francisco 49ers (1983-1998) as the only teams to accomplish the feat. The Patriots had four players selected to the Pro Bowl: QB Tom Brady, G Logan Mankins, ST Matthew Slater, CB Aqib Talib.

"The playoffs means it's a one-game season each week," says New England defensive end Rob Ninkovich. "You have to lay it all out there because if you don't win the game, you go home."

Brady has won 17 games in the playoffs, the most in NFL history, and has a 17-7 (.708) postseason record.

"When it comes down to it, the team that plays the best is going to win," says Brady. "In the playoffs, you're playing the best teams. When you play a good team, it's hard to beat a good team when you don't play your best."

In the Wild Card round, the Colts erased a 38-10 second-half deficit and won 45-44 in the third-highest scoring playoff game in NFL history. The victory by Indianapolis was the first time ever that a team won a game in regulation after trailing by at least 28 points and it tied for the second-largest comeback of any kind in league history.

"Incredible, incredible victory," says Colts head coach Chuck Pagano. "A great team victory and one for the ages. Our guys are unbelievable. They stuck to the process and never doubted. We did just enough to advance in the tournament."

Quarterback Andrew Luck threw for 443 yards and four touchdowns - and added a fumble-return TD - and wide receiver T.Y. Hilton set team playoff records with 13 catches for 224 yards and two scores.
