Wild Card Weekend Wrap Up

Heading into the Wild Card weekend…

 ·  The top six teams with the most playoff berths since 2000 were all in the playoffs:  Indianapolis (10), Philadelphia (9), New England (8), Baltimore (7), Green Bay (7) and Pittsburgh (7). 

·  A team (Kansas City) went from worst to first in its division for a record eighth consecutive season.

·  Aaron Rodgers threw for 423 yards and four TDs in the Pack’s playoff loss last year against Arizona.

After the Wild Card...

 ·  The upset:  For the first time in NFL history, a team with a losing record won a playoff game.  The 7-9 Seattle Seahawks stunned the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints in a shootout, 41-36.

·  The nail-biter:  The Jets and Colts traded leads throughout the fourth quarter until a Jets field goal won the game as time expired.

·  The blowout:  The Ravens were dominant in three out of the four quarters to top the Chiefs 30-7.

·  The near come-back:  Mike Vick nearly led the Birds to a fourth quarter comeback, but fell short to the Pack, 21-16.

 Teams are preparing for what another exciting weekend of football.  Do you have the best gear to support your team?
