NFL Playoff Update

As the second round of the playoffs conclude, here is a brief update of this weekends action.

In 18 degree weather at Foxborough, the Patriots and Ravens had a back and forth battle. However, New England was able to capitalize in the fourth quarter and advance, 35-31. At Lambeau Field, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers were able to rally from a first half deficit. In the fourth quarter, the Cowboys converted a crucial 4th down on a catch by Dez Bryant, but that play was overturned, and Green Bay won. In Denver, Andrew Luck and the Colts were able to upset the Broncos 24-13. Luck outplayed the struggling Peyton Manning and got the victory. In Seattle, the Seahawks were challenged by the Panthers. This one was all Seahawks, as they dominated Carolina 31-17 en route to the NFC title game.

So there you have it. The AFC Championship Game will feature Andrew Luck and the Colts at Tom Brady and the Patriots, while the NFC Championship game will see Aaron Rodgers and the Packers take on Russell Wilson and the Seahawks in the home of the 12th man.
