Dont fret! The NFL playoffs will not conflict with your Golden Globes party this weekend. You can be well-rounded and watch it all! So, here are the one-liners you need for the second week playoff match-ups:
Baltimore Ravens v. Denver Broncos (4:30PM/CBS): Can Peyton Manning complete his career comeback while wearing orange and blue? Peyton is coming off an injured season on the bench and an ugly divorce with the Indianapolis Colts, but has proved the critics wrong by leading the Broncos to the top of the AFC this season. Peyton is hungry for full redemption, but he will be battling retiring Raven, Ray Lewis, who is fighting for one more day on the field.
Green Bay Packers v. San Francisco 49ers (8PM/FOX): Fans are bound to be confused in this QB matchup, where Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is from the Bay Area and 49ers QB Colin Kapernick was born in Wisconsin. Rodgers is an NFL pro, while Kapernick still has something to prove coming off the bench this season and introdu...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Ravens defensive lineman Paul Kruger took a shot at Peyton Manning on Twitter after his team beat the Broncos. See what he said.
This is one of the more interesting questions as the NFL kicks off its divisional playoffs later today. Peyton Manning’s record in cold weather games hasn’t been great, and now we hear he’ll be wearing gloves for this playoff game. The Broncos are heavy favorites today as they host the Ravens, and many Ravens fans and those betters taking the points are hoping Peyton will freeze...
The Ravens shocked football fans on Saturday by taking down the Denver Broncos who came out of the gate strong and from the outset looked to be setting the tone. The Ravens kept their cool and battled back in double overtime to defeat the Broncos 38-35. And while much was made about Peyton Manning’s nine [...]
If only we were ever on the same team T
In what was one of the best games of this season, or any season for that matter. Two of the greatest to ever play their positions faced off. Ray and the Ravens got the best of Peyton and the Broncos, but it was a game for the ages. Nothing but respect for both these guys.-TO
If Peyton Manning Was A Whale
Ray Lewis Has One Last Run
That was quick.
On their third offensive play of the game, Denver quarterback Peyton Manning threw a pick-six to cornerback Corey Graham.
Graham’s interception gave the Ravens a 14-7 lead with less than 10 minutes left in the first quarter. The interception was set up by a Chykie Brown tipped pass.
Who will you be rooting for on Saturday? Baltimore or Denver?
Raj: I got a lot of criticism for fellow Patriots fans on twitter for my decision to root for the Ravens last Sunday and that isn't changing. One reason is because Ray Rice carried Rutgers to glory and I am a Jersey guy. Pride apart, I also rooted for the Ravens because let's be honest, who is a much tougher...
Aaron Rodgers has never played a meaningful NFL game in front of his hometown crowd in San Francisco, Calif. — he did make an appearance in a 2008 preseason game. So, Saturday night will mark a first for Rodgers inside Candlestick Park, but as for the 49ers he already has some history.
Earlier this season, way back in Week 1 actually, Rodgers watched as the Niners rolled into Green...
The Ravens and Broncos will feature a bit of a chess match between Peyton Manning and Ray Lewis, two of the biggest names in the game. The night game, Green Bay at San Francisco, features quarterbacks with two very different levels of experience.
Divisional Round: Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers
This Week’s Pick
San Francisco 49ers
I waffled more than Brett Favre over retirement on this one. Make me the one trying for some reverse psychology this week, but the game could go either way. I think Rodgers plays outstanding but the defense...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- There was a feeling within the Packers locker room that they'd see the San Francisco 49ers again. Perhaps it was just hopefulness, looking for a way to get another shot at the team that came into Lambeau Field in Week 1 of the regular season and thoroughly outplayed Green Bay on both sides of the ball.
But that was four months ago. Now, the Packers are getting...
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...
In an industry that seemingly devolves day after day, finding the most inept, inane sportswriter can sometimes prove more difficult than expected. Last year, the title was pretty much up for grabs until the fall, whereupon Mitch Albom blew away the “competition” with a steaming pile of word turds related to the AL MVP race. This year, however, I think we can give the damn thing...
Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers is a northern California native who is returning to face the team he grew up rooting for and the one that bypassed him in the 2005 draft.
It's less well known that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was born in Wisconsin and said he used to cheer for Green Bay.
The former Super Bowl champion and the postseason newcomer will...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It seemed like it should have been a great day for the Packers' healthy group of wide receivers in the playoff win over the Minnesota Vikings. For the first time since Week 4, quarterback Aaron Rodgers had all of his playmakers on the field together for longer than one drive.
But it wasn't Randall Cobb or Greg Jennings or Jordy Nelson or James Jones or...
