It must be hard to be second string at such a high-profile position as quarterback. Some NFL players have filled backup duties with patience and hard work, biding their time until opportunity strikes. League MVP Aaron Rodgers, for instance, rode the pine behind Brett Favre for three seasons with the Green Bay Packers before earning the starting job for himself.
The New York Giants were the only road team to win in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs this weekend.
Meanwhile, San Francisco and New England won the right to host their conference’s championship game next Sunday. Here’s a recap of all of this weekend’s NFL action:
The NFL playoffs enter the divisional round this weekend. Just eight teams remain with a chance of playing in the Super Bowl in Indianapolis on February 5. Green Bay, San Francisco, New England and Baltimore will all host games after enjoying a bye during wild card weekend.
We won’t know for almost a month if the Green Bay Packers’ 15-1 season ends with a second straight Super Bowl win, but the team’s continued success has certainly helped it snag the title of America’s most popular football team.
The NFL postseason has arrived and while a dozen teams chase the Vince Lombardi Trophy, you may want to temper your excitement because we think these NFL playoffs will actually go down as the least exciting in history.
Green Bay Packers QB and former LSU Tiger Matt Flynn was sensational last Sunday in his only start of the season. Throwing for 480 yards and 6 TDs turned everyone's attention to the 4 year backup. In fact, his 6 TDs was a Green Bay Packer record. Aside from beating the Detroit Lions, Matt Flynn earned himself a starting NFL job...somewhere.
