2015 NFL Season-Now with Playoff Talk

Recommended Posts

Sweet. We get two teams in the NFC who have never won a title, and another (probably final) Brady vs Manning matchup in the AFC. As someone who has no dog in the fight, that's pretty hard to complain about.

I mean, I still hope the Pats charter flight depressurizes somewhere over the Rockies later this week, but this is so much better than what could've been.

I hate the Broncos and Patriots, so it's a no win situation for me. The AFC is so boring.

Yeah I can understand that, but Brady vs Manning has basically been THE rivalry in the NFL for this generation, and this almost certainly is the last time we're ever going to get this matchup. That's something to appreciate IMO.

Westgate early lines:

Carolina (-3) hosting Arizona. Total of 48

Denver (+2.5) hosting New England. Total of 45.

I wouldn't mind three of the final four winning the Super Bowl. Time to go put money on the Patriots, I guess.

Last week, all the road teams won.

This week, all the home teams won.

Funny thing this game is...

Okay, so I know this is one week before the conference championships, but...

So much for that Backdoor cover

WooHoo! Bring on the Pats!

Hey Andy, congrats to your Broncs on the victory. My Steelers left it all on the field in Cincy. Never even thought we would have made it far to be honest.

Brady vs. Manning in the AFC Champ...will this be the last time these two meet in this type of game? And with that said.....Go Broncos!

I guess I'm rooting for the NFC this year.

Although, I'd have no problem with Denver winning.

Tom Brady (who never seems to age) possibly returning home to the Bay Area to win a 5th Super Bowl in front of his family & friends. Might as well have Tom's boyhood idol Joe Montana present him with the Super Bowl trophy in an official passing of the torch moment. This $hit writes itself.

I'll be rooting for whoever win the NFC title game, next week. I hope the Patriots don't win yet again.

7 of the 8 teams were chalk though. Only Green Bay was an underdog.

Brady has never got to play at SF vs the Niners interestly enough. In 2008 he was hurt when they played at Candlestick.

Look familiar?

If that's to come again, I sure hope the fortunes reverse.

Though I must be honest, I think the only team left that could beat the Patriots at all is Arizona. Carolina could keep it close should they meet, but thier tendency to lay off the pedal a little would kill them late, I fear. That flaw is to Brady and co. as blood is to a shark.

Hindsight is 20-20, though some chatter about whether Green Bay should've just tried for 2 & the game when they scored late.

I'm beginning to think that Rodgers & McCarthy just might go for that next time.
