Could non-offensive TDs play a role in conference championship games?

Could non-offensive TDs play a role in conference championship games?

Hyped by on January 19, 2014 Website: www.statsontapp.com

Here’s one more take on today’s AFC and NFC championship games…

How important will it be for the 49ers, Broncos, Patriots and Seahawks to score TDs when their offenses don’t have the ball? In other words, will we see any scores from kick returns or from an intercepted pass or fumble recovery?

In looking at conference championships played in the Super Bowl era (since 1966), scoring a touchdown from an interception has been a good omen in these games. There have been 15 interceptions returned for TD in the AFC or NFC title game since 1966, with the team scoring on the pick-six winning 13 and losing only two. Here’s a snapshot look at return TDs in championship games.
