It's all down to four teams. Last week delivered some expected winners (New England and Green Bay) but there were some suprises (San Diego and New York). This is the weekend before two teams meet for the Lombardi Thropy. The four teams that are meeting met before in Week 2 of this season. Could the results be different or the same? Again, ladies, we love you... but no shopping trips to the mall and please, no "Honey Do" lists. Get the beer cold, the brats ready and sit and watch some football!
San Diego at New England, 3 pm ET (CBS) - These two meet in Foxboro in week 2, three weeks after Spygate. New England took the Sunday night affair 38-14. Tom Brady went 25-31 with 279 yards and three touchdowns as the Chargers turned the ball over three times. The Bolts were also held to 52 yards rushing on the day. The weather was a lot warmer that September Sunday night but the Weather Channel says it could be a windy day at Gillette Stadium, with temps reaching the 23-degree mark. Both teams come off wins last weekend, the Pats manhandling Jacksonville while San Diego rallied to beat the defending Super Bowl champs in their own back yard, despite losing Phillip Rivers and LT. New England's a 14-point favorite and the over-under is 49. Take the Pats, even with Randy Moss in trouble. Take the points as well.
New York Giants at Green Bay, 6:30 pm (FOX) - Another week 2 meeting, this time in the Meadowlands, with the Packers scoring 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter and ran roughshod over the Giants (and the spot where Jimmy Hoffa is alleged to be buried, according to Playboy!) at Giants Stadium. The Packers overcame the snow and wind at Lambeau and beat the Seahawks and their former coach, Mike Holmgren, while the Giants were "Road Warriors" and sent Tony Romo, Terrell Owens, et al home early for the second season in a row. Snow flurries and 6 degress may be the order of the night for this one. The Packers are a touchdown favorite with the over-under at 41. Anyone that doesn't take the Packers and the 7 should be sent to their rooms with no dessert.
