I realize that a lot of you could care less about football, but this past week has featured some really good games. The Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl Fiesta Bowl and Chik-fil-A Bowl were all great NCAA match-ups. Yesterday there were two great NFL Wildcard playoff games.
Andrew Luck of the Indy Colts did something Peyton Manning never did – he brought his team back from a 28 point deficit to beat the KC Chiefs 45-44. It was incredible. The second game wasn’t quite so dramatic but the NOLA Saints came from behind to beat the Philly Eagles in cold weather.
I said something yesterday that was incorrect. I said that the weather forecast for today’s Niners vs. Packers game was a temperature of zero. I should have said sub-zero. That will be about 60 degrees cooler than it is in San Francisco but for some reason the Niners are favored.
A couple AFC teams are also playing today but I forget which ones. The Raiders won’t be either of them.
