Hangover Sports Roundup: Lobos lose heartbreaker, NFL Wildcard,

Lobo Basketball

Road games continue to be the Lobos' kryptonite. The Wyoming Cowboys aren't known for dominating the conference but it doesn't mean the Lobos could overlook them. UNM senior point guard Dairese Gary was the only player in double figures scoring 24 points and adding six assists. Gary gave the Lobos the lead by hitting two free throws in the final seconds. The Cowboys had to final possession and eventually finished off New Mexico with a fade away floater by Wyoming's Francisco Cruz. If the Lobos want an invitation to the big dance in March, Phillip McDonald, Kendall Williams and Drew Gordon need to step up. Despite losing three out of their last five games, the Lobos have a two game home stand against Colorado State and #6 San Diego State.

If New Mexico can sweep both games, it can be a major momentum boost for the rest of the season.


Four teams went into the weekend with Super Bowl Dreams, only two survived. No one gave the Seattle Seahawks any shot of beating the defending champs, New Orleans Saints. Despite having the home field advantage, the Saints were an 11 point favorite. Instead of a one-sided beating, the game turned into a back and forth battle. Seattle's Marshawn Lynch touchdown run in the forth quarter destroyed the Saints defense and sealed the victory for Seahawks. The Seahawks 41-36 victory became one of the biggest playoff upsets in the history of the NFL.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan seemed determined to ruin Peyton Manning's playoff legacy. Ryan wanted revenge for the Colts beating the Jets in last years AFC championship game but the only way he could get it was to trust his quarterback Mark Sanchez. After Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri gave Indianapolis the lead, the game rested on Sanchez's ability to be clutch in crunch time. Antonio Cromartie kickoff return took some pressure off of Sanchez and enabled him to throw a 18-yard pass to Braylon Edwards. Jets kicker Nick Folk nailed a chip shot and gave Ryan his much need victory over Peyton Manning. Now the Jets look for payback against their hated rival, the New England Patriots.

In Sunday's games, the Baltimore Ravens defense forced five turnovers and dominated the Kansas City Chiefs, 30-7. With Joe Flacco two touchdowns passes, the Ravens have a steady offense to compliment their hard hitting defense. Later that day the Eagles tried to overcome a Packers defense who injured the Eagles original starting QB, Kevin Kolb. The Eagles seemed destined for the comeback victory in the 4th quarter. Instead ,Vick threw a interception, crushing their playoff hopes. Vick may have thrown the game ending interception but he doesn't deserve all of the blame. Hopefully the Eagles can improve their offensive line to protect Vick. Meanwhile Aaron Rodgers will try to add to his frist playoff victory when the Packers face the Atlanta Falcons.
