I read recently in USA today, that in 48 Super Bowls, that no team has played the big game at their "home stadium". The Cardinals (currently projected to be #1 seed in the NFC) could be the first, if they can make it.

We owe 'em, big time, for that playoff loss a couple* of years back. Go, Pack, Go!

*Can't wait until "couple" is seven or eight...my spurs will be hanging by the door.

I suspect I could have been at least an adequate NFL QB with 10 seconds to find a target on pretty much every play. Not taking away from Rodgers, who is a fabulous QB, but Arizona's pass rush was high school quality. GB's wasn't all that much better. Like watching Arena Football.

Agree, neither defense was very good last night as you can see by the higher scores of both teams.

Drats! The Rams couldn't even score one TD to defeat Arizona the other night, who still sit atop the NFC West, 1.5 games ahead of Seattle.

Today I say: Go Bills! Beat Green Bay. But I dunno whether to root for Dallas or Philly for a potential wild card head-to-head. Philly, right? Cause the Hawks beat them but lost to the Cowboys?

Anyway, Go Hawks! Beat those Niners today!

The Texans are now down to their 3rd string QB (Tom Savage) since Fitzpatrick was carted off the field with a leg injury in the first half of today's game. The season is really starting to take it's toll on a number of teams.

I my opinion, its very hard for a team that has beaten you once to do so again in the same season, unless your team is suffering from injuries. That said, I hope the Cowboys don't blow that theory.

What is going on with Rodgers today? Horrible stat line, haven't been watching as I have too much $ on Steelers winning season 8.5 over bet. He must be a ER forum member and read too much about us anointing him GOAT.

I thought I was watching Cutler/Bears v Buffalo. That's a stat line I expect from Cutler (0 TDs, 2 INT). Rodgers set a season high 25 incomplete (was 18) passes and increased his interceptions from 3 to 5. Now it makes you wonder how good Buffalo really is or was this game fixed? Jordy Nelson had 2 big drops, one was a wide open easy 94 yd TD that hit him in both hands.

It was more about the receivers than Rodgers. They couldn't catch anything. Rodgers didn't do bad. The interceptions were from tipped balls that should've been caught.

Actually, one of the interceptions was just good defense. Have to give Buffalo credit. That's a tough place to play.

I guess this shows you that Rodgers is human and so are his receivers. Buffalo gave them an old fashioned whipping.

Yes, very unimpressive! Maybe even embarrassing.

The earthshaking news of the Cowboys win last night in Philedelphia against the Eagles, must have reached the ghost in the old Texas Stadium site about 6am this morning.

Probably caused by ghosts of previous coaches, managers, quarterbacks, etc.
