NFL Playoffs Preview and Puzzle

What is going to happen in the NFC East?

For the majority of the teams in the National Football League, the playoff picture is beginning to take shape. On the AFC side, things are relatively clear-cut. The New England Patriots, Houston Texans and Denver Broncos have clinched the AFC East, South and West, respectively, and the Baltimore Ravens have claimed the North.

The New York Jets, the ugly step-sister in the eyes of New Yorkers infatuated with the Giants are out of the playoffs, and have benched their quarterback. The big-sister Giants, don't forget, won the Super Bowl last year in a dramatic fashion.

On the NFC side of the football divisions, the Green Bay Packers have secured the North, as has become habit for the publicly-owned team. The Packers are looking as strong as ever, but perhaps not as strong as the San Francisco 49ers, who have sealed at least a playoff berth in the NFC West, and are well thought-of in the ESPN Power Rankings. The 49ers and the Packers both have favorable schedules to end the season.

The Atlanta Falcons have ruled the NFC South's roost so far and sent a bruising message last week to the Giants and, perhaps, the rest of the NFC East as well. But that's where things get confusing.

The Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys and those champs from last year, the New York Giants, are all tied at the top of the NFC East with records of 8-6, leaving this competitive division as the last playoff knot to untie. And with only two weeks of regular season games left to play, the schedule makers have done football fans a huge favor by making sure that, even if next week is relatively calm, exciting rivalries are short in coming.

The last week of the regular season will bring over-hyped (and almost mathematically eliminated) Philly to the home of the Giants and, most importantly, Dallas to Washington. By scheduling these division rivalries at the end of the season, the NFL succeeds in two respects. First of all, neither the Cowboys nor the Redskins will be resting any players who should otherwise be playing. They'll want every able body to fight for playoff position. Secondly, we get super-compelling TV to watch, even when some of the other games that week (The Jets in Buffalo, anyone?) aren't going to be very interesting.

Hangover Sports Roundup

Holland has breakthrough, Tebow completes comeback, Burress shines

World Series

After St. Louis Cardinal Albert Pujols’ legendary Game 3 performance, the Texas Rangers were looking for a spark to even up the series. Pujols’ three home runs in Game 3 helped St. Louis dominate the Rangers 16-7. So in Game 4, the Rangers needed to reestablish its pitching support if it had any hope of getting back momentum. Pitcher Derek Holland heard that message loud and clear by holding the Cardinals to only two hits over 8 1/3 innings. The 25-year-old had seven strikeouts to aid his 4-0 shuout. The series is tied at 2-2, with Cardinals pitching ace Chris Carpenter on the mound in Game 5.

NFL

Denver Broncos vs. Miami Dolphins

Tim Tebow doesn't play the position like a conventional quarterback, but the guy wins football games. For three quarters, Tebow looked pretty ordinary and fell behind 15-0 to the winless Miami Dolphins in the fourth quarter. But just as it looked grim for the Denver Broncos, Tebow lead his team to two touchdowns and a two point conversion, pushing the game into overtime. Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore gave up a costly fumble, giving the Broncos good field position for a game-winning field goal. Kicker Matt Prater completed Tebow's comeback to give Denver the 18-15 victory. While accuracy problems still continue to haunt the former Florida Gator, Tebow has heart and competitive spirit which makes him an instant favorite to teammates and fans alike.

NY Jets vs San Diego Chargers

Plaxico Burress has been criticized for dropping balls and not being in tune with the Jets’ offense to start the season. He had only caught two touchdowns prior to the Jets’ matchup with the Chargers. But finally Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez decided to use Burress as a red zone target. Every time New York was in the red zone, Burress was the No. 1 option, resulting in three touchdowns grabs. As Sanchez got stronger, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers faded in the fourth quarter, throwing two costly interceptions. The Jets won 27-21 and have some much needed confidence heading into its bye week to prepare for games with Buffalo and New England.
