Denver, New England and Green Bay each have a future Hall of Fame Quarterback on their roster. This weekend is going to have some great QB play.
The Wildcard round brought us some pretty bad games. The marque quarterbacks were on a bye so this week should be a lot better.
Here are the quarterbacks and how they stack-up
1) Manning - Peyton Manning is the MVP of the League this year so he has to be the best QB on the board. He's lead the Broncos to the #1 Seed in an AFC that has a lot of competition at the top. This will be a great game for Manning against an old Ravens defense.
2) Brady - It's hard not to put Brady at the top but this season Peyton gets the honor. The Patriots can put up 50 and they just might against a Texans team that is falling apart.
3) Rodgers - Aaron Rodgers is a great QB but this season it just doesn't seem like he has everything together. There have been a lot of injuries on the offensive side of the ball this season ...

The Green Bay Packers head out west to take on the San Francisco 49ers with a trip to the NFC Championship game on the line.
These two teams faced off in week one with the 49er’s winning 30-22 in Lambeau. Both teams have changed since that game, which will make this game completely different...
The anxiety-filled green room and draft day seem so long ago now to Aaron Rodgers.
Still, on this weekend, any lingering feelings of frustration about how far he dropped will be directed right at the team that passed him up with the No. 1 pick nearly eight years ago.
Rodgers brings the high-scoring Green Bay Packers (12-5) to Candlestick Park on Saturday to face No. 2 seed San...
Laura Kaeppeler was named Miss America 2012, entering the pageant at Miss Wisconsin. Therefore, you can put aside your stereotypes about fat people in Wisconsin; at least for a year. Tonight she relinquishes her crown. And as you might expect, she’s a Green Bay Packers fan.
Kaeppler introduced herself on the evening of her 2012 crowning moment by mentioning the NFL’s defending...
There is no shortage of hype surrounding Saturday Night's NFC Divisional playoff game at Candlestick between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers. The breakdowns and the analysis of this game seems never ending. Yet the only analysis you need is this - if the Packers are to escape with a win, it will be because Aaron Rodgers is special.
Period. End of discussion...

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers look a lot like Flanders from the Simpsons. Rogers has his hands full today, but I still wouldn’t wanna go against this guy in the playoffs.-TO

Sorry about your homecoming Aaron Rodgers. I’m sure one of these days you’ll be able to win in San Francisco. All the talk heading into this game was about Aaron Rodgers homecoming, how the 49ers were going to be upset they didn’t draft him back in 2005. Yes, that is right, Rodgers is still crying 7 years later. Well Aaron that was before Harbaugh’s time and he drafted Colin...
From Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews to Frank Gore and Aldon Smith, you know all the big names who will have key roles in the divisional playoff showdown. Here are six players who will be key performers on Saturday night that were not when these teams met in Week 1.
It all started so well for the Green Bay Packers, taking an early lead on an interception returned for a touchdown. Then, over the final 58 minutes of the game, the San Francisco 49ers dominated offensively and sent Green Bay into the offseason with its second divisional-round defeat in two years.
Handing out grades following the Packers' 45-31 loss to the 49ers:

I missed on the picks yesterday. Like I said, this week looks incredibly tough to predict. I was hoping to see a Peyton Manning vs. Aaron Rodgers Super Bowl. I think that’s the dream matchup all of us wanted to see this year. After last night, that’s out of the picture. I should have kept the Broncos (-2.5)/Patriots (-2.5) teaser alive, but the 70-yard bomb with 36 seconds left...
In week one, Green Bay fell short to San Francisco, 30-22. On Saturday, it was the same story, just a different quarterback. 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick picked up his first career playoff win with a 45-31 win over Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Kaepernick totaled 444 yards and four touchdowns (2 rush, 2 pass). His 181 rushing yards set a record for the most rushing...
After an early afternoon reprieve from regular season rematches, it’s back to teams that have seen each other in the recent past. Last go-round, it didn’t go so well for Houston. A defense that had already showed signs of vulnerability going against Aaron Rodgers earlier in the season was picked apart in a game where the Patriots didn’t even have Gronk playing.
So unless the...
