Do this weekend’s two road teams, Baltimore and San Francisco, have a chance in their conference championship games?
For the 49ers, they have an all-time 2-10 road playoff record. In fact, you have to go back to a playoff game after the 1988 regular season to find the last time the 49ers won a road playoff game. That was January 8, 1989 when they defeated the Bears 28-3 in a contest in Chicago. Not a good omen for the 49ers… or is this their year to snap that drought?
The Ravens, on the other hand, would probably wear the title of “NFL’s best road playoff team since 2000.” Baltimore has an 8-5 record as a road playoff team in their franchise history. Their eight road playoff wins since 2000 tops the NFL. A good omen for the Ravens.
Here’s a look at the teams that have won road playoff games since 2000 (includes this year’s playoff games).
