Well, football starts a little later today, at 3pm EST, but there are two VERY good games to look forward to. And the winners of these games are moving forward to:
The first game that's coming on today is basically the oldest rivalry in football, Packers vs Bears. The Bears tried to keep the Packers out of the playoffs near the end of the regular season, but failed to do so as they lost 10-3. I would probably say that this is still riding hard on the minds of the Bears as their quite possibly "worst fear" has come alive in that they have to face them again. Could the Bears come back and do the job they couldn't do the first time around? Only time will tell.
The second game on today at about 6:30pm EST is the Jets vs Steelers. The Steelers want another Super Bowl, and they want to plow through the Jets to do so. Personally, I think Sanchez is going to be the main factor in whether or not the Jets make it or not. This is the first time he's gotten this far into the post-season, and I think his rookie-ish status is going to hurt him, regardless of how good he is. The Steelers are too big of a force in my honest opinion.
So, get your pizzas, subs, nachos, or whatever you eat on Sundays, cause we've got one hell of a day ahead of us!
