This weekend is a big weekend for football fans. Some of the big matchups include Denver versus Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks against Atlanta Falcons. there are so many story lines here that it is must see television. As a New York Giants fan I can only wish that they were still in it, but the interest is still there. I am not going to root for another team, but I will definitely follow the games to see Peyton Manning, Ray Lewis and Aaron Rogers.
No matter which team you support, if you are a football fan you have to keep watching. My only issue with some sports analysts is the praise they are heaping on Denver. If they claim that Tim Tebow was not a good quarterback and he took them to the playoffs and won a game, that means Peyton Manning has to do at least one better. He has to win a series and possible make it to the super bowl. Anything less will be a failure.
Ray Lewis says this is his last ride. Whenever the Raven’s season end he walks away from the game. As a result it will be interesting to see how things will go with them. Flacco is not on the level of Peyton Manning, so I expect the Ravens season to end in Denver.
Atlanta Falcons played well all season and they are a young team. They have a great quarterback who has a good command of the game and so they should put up a good fight against the Seahawks. The Seattle Seahawks are the sleeper team this season. They piqued at the right time and they should make it to the Super Bowl. My prediction is Seattle Seahawks versus Greenbay Packers for the Super bowl. Tom Brady has not won anything since the cheating scandal. Eli Manning beat him fair and square last year. The New England Patriots need to regroup and come back.
Well, there you have it. Please feel free to comment. Check back on Monday to talk about the results.
