Green Bay Packers
Seattle has already faced, and beaten, both the Saints and 49ers this season but not the Packers. Does the unknown help or hurt a team in the Playoffs?
Last year, the 49ers made an improbable run to the Super Bowl, before falling one play short of reaching the ultimate team goal. They lost to the Baltimore Ravens, a more experienced team that rode momentum all the way to a Championship. This year it’s San Francisco who fits this description and unlike last year, the Niners have everything in place to get past the rest of the NFC.
Two of the NFL’s most decorated franchises will meet this Sunday when the Packers and 49ers meet in a NFC Wild Card matchup. The winner will move on in the playoffs, while the loser will face a disappointing end to a season that started with much higher aspirations.
Despite their dearth of recent success, all eyes will be on the Cowboys. For the karma and the drama, for better or worse, they are America’s team. Mostly for worse. Just watch on Sunday.
The endless genius of the NFL can’t be completely quantified. But part of pro football’s popularity is burning its image in our culture and our consciousness. While baseball and basketball have their July 4 and Christmas brands, they are afterthoughts, or leftovers, compared to the NFL’s hallmark roll call.
Assorted stats from the Green Bay Packers 38-20 win over the Washington Redskins.
It was a record setting day for the Green Bay Packers who scored 31 unanswered points to open Sundays dominant win over the Washington Redskins.
The Washington Redskins will have safety Brandon Meriweather in the lineup for just the second time in a regular season game since he joined the team prior to the start of last season.
Even at Lambeau Field, Aaron Rodgers’ home turf, Robert Griffin III owns the spotlight.
Monday night football began with Robert Griffin making a grandiose entrance fit for the King of Kings. But it ended with the burgundy and gold celebrating only a moral victory. Deep down inside, all members of the franchise understand that an 0-2 start could be a real possibility as they prepare to dance with the Green Bay Packers.
