NFL Playoffs: Weekend Preview 1/12-1/13/08
week is an important week because of the Auto Show, but there
is a lot of action going on in football. So let's look at
some of the match ups this week in the NFL playoffs.
Night at 8 p.m. the eyes of the entire nation will once again
turn to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. For the first
time since 1972, an NFL team begins their playoff bid undefeated.
No team in any sport has possibly ever went 16-0. This year's
New England Patriots were the first NFL team to ever go 16-0.
Though five teams have gone 13-0, only one team has gone 14-0
and that was the 1972 Miami Dolphins.
Indy Colts look to repeat as Super Bowl champions this weekend
by beginning their playoff stand against he San Diego Chargers.
The Chargers were 14-2 last season and then lost in their
first playoff game. The Chargers fired their entire coaching
staff after last season and started off bad. Some people might
say the Chargers are lucky to be here, others say that this
team is on fire and ready to win.
spending the Cowboys bye week in Mexico with Jessica Simpson,
Tony Romo is looking to prove the critics wrong and defeat
the Giants. The Giants destroyed the Lions earlier this year
and the Lions lost by one point to the Cowboys in the closing
seconds. It is rumored that Jessica Simpson highly effects
Tony Romo's play since the two have started dating.
Favre is considered the greatest iron man in sports. He hasn't
missed a start in nearly a decade, so he is ready to go. Now
people have forgotten that the Packers are as good as they
are. A young team that last season was as bad as the Lions
at one point before turning things around, Farve is looking
to lead them to success. Favre hasn't won or played in a Super
Bowl since 1994. So this is a huge game for him, he also hasn't
been in the second round of the playoffs in five years.
