|Road to Superbowl Begins Saturday
|UNDATED (AP) -- The second season of the NFL starts Saturday with two playoff matchups featuring the same teams that played last week to end the regular season.
The New York Jets shut out the Cincinnati Bengals 37-0 at home, but now the game is in Cincinnati. It's been more than two decades since the Bengals last won a playoff game. The Jets are on a roll, going 5-1 to end the regular season. The Bengals finished 1-3.
Dallas crushed the Philadelphia Eagles 24-0 in Dallas and the two teams play again at the Cowboys' new stadium Saturday night. Dallas has not won a playoff game in more than a decade.
The Eagles have won 10 playoff games since Dallas last won one. But the Cowboys are coming off two stellar defensive efforts that produced back-to-back shutouts for the first time in club history.
