We have two home teams moving on to the conference title games. The Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots will host the AFC and NFC games next Sunday. Who will play them? We will know after today.
Here are the two games slated for Sunday. They should be very good ones.
In what could be another Ice Bowl, The Packers and Cowboys will play to see who will move on to Seattle. Green Bay is favored by 5.5 points, but Aaron Rodgers' torn calf muscle will have him at less than 100 percent. How much less? That is the question. You can LIVESTREAM the game (legally) here if you can't catch it on TV.
The NFL couldn't be happier about having Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning meet. Peyton faces his former team, who now has the stud young QB in Luck. Denver is favored by seven points in this matchup. There are concerns about Peyton's leg and his arm, but with extra rest and a solid defense playing when he isn't on the field, most believe they will prevail. You can also LIVESTREAM this game (legally) here if you aren't around a TV.
Use this post as your playoff open thread. Who should Cardinals fans root for? In the NFC, it is hard. The Cowboys have earned a place of disdain in many fans' hearts because of so many years in the NFC East. But the Packers aren't really a better option.
In the AFC, it comes down to whether you want Peyton to move on or Luck. I wonder who Bruce Arians is rooting for...
