As Christmas nears we all start to get that familiar anxiety known as PFD…Post Football Depression. We start thinking of things as lasts. Last Monday Night Football. Last Philip Rivers tantrum at the ref. Last Redskins cornerback getting burned. Last Dez Bryant annoying TD celebration making you hate him more but making you begrudgingly acknowledge a great play. You know what I mean.
But take heart. While the regular season winds down, the playoff picture heats up. Here are the top games to watch this weekend –
- Kansas City at Pittsburgh – two teams trying to claw their way into the playoffs
- Atlanta at New Orleans – this game will likely decide the NFC South, a hapless division where a team with a losing record could get a home playoff game.
- Seattle at Arizona –again, a likely division decider. Seattle was humbled earlier in the season but thing turn on a dime in football, and they are looking unstoppable as of now. Just don’t way “Legion of Boom” or I will lose it with you and your lame nicknames.
