Illustration for article titled The NFL Playoffs Should Do, But Just In Case...

Truth be told, yesterday's playoff games had some exciting moments, but all of them occurred in the first halves. If these two games today continue that trend, we might be searching for something else to occupy our Sundays. Your other option is to play ActRaiser for the Super Nintendo.

Think how SimCity would be if the mayor of the town was good at swordfighting. You're now thinking of ActRaiser.
