Minnesota's Sunday blowout of the NY Giants accompanied with the Eagles loss to the Cowboys gave the Vikes a number-two seed and a first-round bye in the play-offs. But, check this out:
The Packers completely decimated the Cardinals yesterday, and they play them again next week in the first week of the playoffs. Even if the Cards play a bit better with all their starters playing, Green Bay should still pull out the win.
The Cowboys and Eagles play once again as well. And even though the Cowboys won yesterday, the Eagles are still, in my opinion, the more explosive and experienced team. I foresee them winning this game.
Now, what would this do? Well, since the Eagles are the #6 team, a win by them would put them up against the #1 Saints. That leaves the Packers--winners of 7 of their last 8--to travel ONCE AGAIN to Minnesota. Brett came back at least in part to beat his former team. He's going to get his chance for the THIRD time in one year! This will be drama!!!
