OT: Saturday NFL Playoffs Open Thread

Submitted by M-Wolverine on January 5th, 2013 at 4:18 PM
Bengals try and upset the Texans after they dropped to 3 seed first at 4:30 pm. Then the Vikings-Packers rematch from last week at 8 pm. All on NBC.

Would not normally be too interested in this game, but in the penultimate month of football I feel compelled to.   Some level of depression always comes over me when I know the football season's end is near.

Wow...only seven replies at the time of my post. The NFL isn't as fun as it used to be. I find myself getting less and less interested in that league with each passing season.

Rooting for the Bengals for some reason.  I'm a Dolphins fan and, yea that hasn't gone so well this decade.  But over the past few years I've had a soft spot for Cincinnati (wow, I really did not know hot to spell that) and have sort of been rooting for them.

It's the NFL.  I honestly don't give a sh*t..

Anyone else agree that that was about thee worst half of football one could watch?!  A pick-6 even happened and it was the lamest "touchdown" I've seen in sometime.

Big defensive drive for the Vikings here. If Green Bay goes up 14-3 it's going to be dangerous.

And there is a key sack. Minnesota needs a low-scoring game in the worst way.

Let's be real here. The Vikings aren't winning this game unless their defense plays an amazing game and Peterson plays out of his mind again. Webb is just asking for a pick 6 every time he is about to get sacked. This will probably get ugly. Hopefully tomorrow features a couple good games.
