    It's set. Pats won by 19. Falcons by 23. Being both the best offenses in the league, with underrated defenses, I think they deserved to be in the super bowl the most this year. So since my Cowboys missed out, I'm looking forward to this as a really good consolation game, that should be really good.

    So both teams score a lot. Both teams have solid defenses. Both teams can run and throw at will. And either Ryan or Brady will be the league MVP.. Who wins this one? Curious on people's takes on this matchup.

    I think the Patriots defense and Belichick's scheming game plan might prove too much for Atlanta. The Falcons offense is better. But only slightly. And the Pats defense is better, but only slightly. So it will come down to qb play, turnovers, and coaching. Unfortunately for Atlanta, New England bests them in all of these categories, usually.

    Saying that, I really want the Falcons to win. And I do think it will be very close. Julio Jones can put them over the top. And they are lucky they don't have to see Gronk in this one.

    I can not think of one good reason why Prescott spiked the ball with 40 something seconds to go in the game, when they had one timeout, down by 3 on first down, already in field goal range.. you left Aaron Rodgers with over 30 seconds on the clock in a tied game?? That was a terrible call. And with so many things going on with that game to focus on, I don't think any single play had me more confused and frustrated than that.

    Was it a rookie mistake? Or just conservative play coming back to bite them? Why would you not want to kick that field goal with little to no time left on the clock, guaranteeing OT? It would have not assured them a win of course. Just OT. But still. That play will stick with me for a while, as a fan. Sucked to watch. Great game otherwise though.

    Raiders v Texans
    Dolphins v Steelers
    Giants v Packers
    Lions v Seahawks

    I see all the home teams winning this wildcard round. That said, being a Cowboys fan, I am most concerned with the Packers. Sure, we beat them already this year. But that was before Rodgers turned it in, and before the 6 game win streak. I see the Packers and Steelers by far the most dangerous teams in the NFC/AFC to challenge the top 2 seeds in their conferences. If they make it to the Super Bowl, I would not be a bit surprised.

    Super Bowl 45 repeat anyone?

    I think after that last loss to Nunez, Ronda is unfortunately done in the UFC. I could be wrong, but she takes losses very hard. And 2 in a row is pretty demoralizing to a fighter of her caliber, and prior ego. I could totally see her re-emerging in the WWE in a few months, after she recovers.

    AFC

    QBs - Tom Brady, Derek Carr, Ben Roethlisberger
    RBs - Le'Veon Bell, DeMarco Murray, LeSean McCoy
    WRs - Antonio Brown, Amari Cooper, AJ Green, TY Hilton
    TEs - Travis Kelce, Delanie Walker

    This must mean the voters clearly think the Steelers offense has the best trio of talent in the league. They were the only team to get the qb/rb/wr selections. And if Ladarius Green would have played all season, who knows, they could have been 4/4. I think you could argue that TY Hilton could have been beaten out by Michael Crabtree. Otherwise, I completely agree with this list.

    NFC

    QBs - Matt Ryan, Aaron Rodgers, Dak Prescott
    RBs - Ezekiel Elliott, David Johnson, Devonta Freeman
    WRs - Julio Jones, Odell Beckham, Mike Evans, Larry Fitzgerald
    TEs - Greg Olsen, Jordan Reed

    I am slanted being a Cowboy's fan and all, but I think Jason Witten should have gotten the nod, over Jordan Reed. Reed has been injured a good deal of the year. And they have a viable backup in Vernon Davis. But Dallas runs through Witten. He is one of their best pass catchers AND blockers. Without Witten, Dallas is not 12-2.

    Dak is interesting here, as Stafford and Brees got overlooked. I think that 32/36 completion % against the Bucs last week was the deciding factor here. If he hadn't of had an outstanding game, he would not be on this list.

    I think you could make the case for Jordan Howard in Chicago OVER Freeman in Atlanta. Howard came out of nowhere, and is having a great season, on an otherwise terrible team. Otherwise, solid list again.

    Any snubs that I missed? Pretty interesting that every single selection is a bonafide name in the game, that's been in the league for years, EXCEPT the 2 Dallas rookies. Just shows what kind of run Dallas is on, and how well they lucked out in the draft.

    Louisville and Kentucky at some point in the last 20 years became one of the best rivalries in college basketball. One has owned the SEC for years (for the most part). And the other, the ACC (again, for the most part).

    Both have a national championship win in the last 5 years. Both have made the final four several times in the last 10 years. And the teams, and fans, apparently hate each other.

    How Kentucky and Louisville embraced the hate in college basketball's most heated rivalry

    I never knew how deep the hate went between these two team's coaches (Pitino v Calipari in current form), the fans, the towns, hell even the states, over a rivalry that seems to have culminated specifically into college basketball. If you are a fan of either of these teams, I recommend checking this article out, if you don't know the history of the rivalry. Interesting stuff.

    ..I fall on the side of Kentucky.

    Good question. For 2016, Lamar had:

    PASSING: 30 passing tds, 9 ints, 3390 yards, 57.6% completion and 153.3 rating.
    RUSHING: 21 rushing tds, 1538 yards, 6.6 avg.

    Far as I know, Jackson is the only qb to win the Heisman that had at least 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards.

    For total offense, that's where he shined. Only Ty Detmer in 1990 ever had more. 5,022 vs 4,928. So Lamar had the 2nd most all time total offense numbers, for Heisman winners. I imagine his TD numbers where tops or right up there too.

    Seattle got lucky a few times in that win. But their defensive play made them deserving. Good thing the penalty kicks were exciting enough, because that game was fairly boring for the entire regulation.

    Oh yeah, very well deserved. Was certainly my favorite player to watch all year.

    Cool vid.
