Russell Wilson Is Happy To Be Playing Away From Seattle

The Super Bowl is played at a neutral site so that neither team playing in the game will have any type of advantage. However I think Seattle does have the advantage playing in Arizona. Yes, of course Seattle has the biggest home field advantage in the NFL, playing in front of the 12th man but Russell Wilson is the x-factor in this Super Bowl and numbers don't lie. View image...

Revisiting The Seahawks And Patriots Last Meeting

We can only hope Super Bowl 49 will be as good as the last time the New England Patriots battled the Seattle Seahawks back in 2012. It was actually quite similar to the Packers/Seahawks game this past Sunday. The Patriots led the Seahawks 23-10 in the 4th quarter, but the rookie quarterback at the time Russell Wilson led the Seahawks to a comeback win, 24-23. View image | gettyimages...

Astros Trade Dexter Fowler to Cubs

The Houston Astros have agreed to trade Dexter Fowler to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for starter Dan Straily and Luis Valbuena.  Does that mean Kris Bryant starts the season as the Cubs 3B?!  The Astros acquired Fowler last year for Jordan Lyles and Brandon Barnes.  Fowler hit above his career average (.271) last season with a .276 average and hit 21 doubles in 116 games...

Nationals Sign Max Scherzer for 7 Years

The Washington Nationals and Max Schezer have agreed to a 7 year contract.  Adding Scherzer to Stephen Strasburg, Doug Fister, Jordan Zimmermann, Gio Gonzalez and Tanner Roark easily gives the Nats the best starting rotation in the MLB.  Rumor has it that Zimmermann is on the trading block now.

Green Bay Packers @ Seattle Seahawks - NFC Championship

Everything the Seahawks stand for has come up big in their last two match ups with the Green Bay Packers. They shut down the pass and then beat you on the ground. Aaron Rodgers in his last two games against Seattle is 49/72 for 412 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Oh yeah, Rodgers has also been sacked 11 times. On the ground the Seahawks have rushed for 334 yards and...

Indianapolis Colts @ New England Patriots - AFC Championship

I think its quite clear that this could be the final time we see Tom Brady and Bill Belichick compete for a Super Bowl title. I think it's also clear that Andrew Luck is on the verge of dominating the AFC. Luck can already be put into that elite class of QB's and with Brady and Peyton Manning on their way out of this league, Luck will be the face of the NFL for years to come....

Indianapolis Colts @ Denver Broncos - Divisional Round

The Colts have been known to find themselves in big holes early in games but with the help of Andrew Luck they usually find a way to get back into it. Indianapolis heads into Denver to face Peyton Manning and the Broncos high powered offense. Back in week 1 the Colts found themselves down 24-0 in the first half but ended up losing by just 7, as they scored two late 4th quarter...

Dallas Cowboys @ Green Bay Packers - Divisional Round

Without a doubt, this will be the best game of the weekend, and possibly the best game we'll see in the playoffs this year. Both teams have firepower on offense and both teams struggle on defense. It's Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant, and Jason Witten vs. Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Whoever makes more plays and less mistakes will walk away...

Carolina Panthers @ Seattle Seahawks - Divisional Round

Let's get straight to the point - the Carolina Panthers had no business getting into the playoffs with a losing record. They also were trailing at half to an Arizona Cardinals team that was playing with a third string quarterback and using running backs they found off the street. Now they go into Seattle trying to knock off the defending Super Bowl champs. It won't happen. This will...

Baltimore Ravens @ New England Patriots - Divisional Round

I can almost guarantee you that Tom Brady and Patriot fans were hoping to see the Steelers knock off the Ravens in the Wild Card round, but unfortunately that did not happen. This will be the 4th time since 2010 that the Ravens and Patriots will meet in the playoffs and all the games will be played in Foxboro. Apparently playing Tom Brady and Bill Belichick on the road doesn't...

Cincinnati Bengals @ Indianapolis Colts - Wild Card Weekend

The day Andrew Luck has a running game, is the day I'll be a believer in the Colts. I was on the verge of becoming a believer when Ahmad Bradshaw was turning into a fantasy stud once again, however with his season ending injury, the Colts run game is non existent and the team is one dimensional. However the Colts are running into a Bengals team who has made the playoffs the last...

Baltimore Ravens @ Pittsburgh Steelers - Wild Card Weekend

There is nothing more frustrating than injuries ruining a teams chance at making a run to the Super Bowl, but the Steelers will face that reality as they host the Ravens without their star running back Le'Veon Bell. Pittsburgh will be without Bell who suffered a hyperextended knee on Sunday night, and they will now hand the running back duties over to Josh Harris. Expect newly...

Arizona Cardinals @ Carolina Panthers - Wild Card Weekend

If this game was taking place in early November, then there is no question about who would be the favorite. The Cardinals were 8-1 with a healthy Carson Palmer and Andre Ellington, while the Panthers were 3-2-1 and struggling mightily on defense. However it's now the first weekend in January and there is no possible way I see the Cardinals beating the Panthers in Carolina. View...
