Man, what a rush. Everyone still alive? Season not over yet? Good, because we have four more games to go today, with three kicking off at 4:25 p.m. Let's keep this gravy train rolling.
San Francisco at Green Bay (FOX): This is my NFC championship match up. Just kidding, I don't make any predictions. I just say vague things about teams so I can always be sort of right. So, San Francisco will look to build on last year with some key additions at positions of need. Green Bay just needs to keep doing what it does best: advance the football. If they do that, they will score points and we all know that the NFL is a scoring-points-league.
Carolina at Tampa Bay (FOX): Greg Schiano, former Rutgers head coach, is now coaching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So, that's a step up? Rutgers did beat Louisville by a field goal that one time and Jeremy Ito pointed at the camera when he made the game winner (after missing his first attempt). The Bucs sure are fired up for Schiano.
"I don't think any team, any player could frighten us more than messing up for (Greg) Schiano," defensive tackle Roy Miller said of the Bucs coach.
Also [MEANINGLESS HISTORICAL BULLET POINT ALERT], the last time these two teams met, The Panthers put up almost 500 yards of offense*.
Seattle at Arizona (FOX): Quarterbacking sensation John Skelton looks to solidify his bid for early induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Look for him to throw 8 touchdowns to Larry Fitzgerald as the Cardinals eviscerate a rookie quarterback and, hopefully, the oft-injured Skittles peddler that comprises most of Pete Carroll's offense. Also notable Seattle offensive information: they held on to Braylon Edwards and cut Terrell Owens, so...yeah.
*Past performance does not necessarily predict future results.
