I'm looking forward to all of these games. The divisional round always tends to have some great match-ups.

First time the Cowboys have played at Green Bay for a playoff game since the infamous Ice Bowl in 1967.

It might come down to coaching decisions (i.e. pre-game planning and adjustments during the game).

I was shocked by the game a few weeks ago against the Texans. Romeo Crennel straight up out-coached Kubiak, something we have been on the receiving end when Kubiak was Texans HC. It was nice to finally be on the other side of that.

And I expect that kind of chess match mentality this week from Belichick.

Yep. Kubiak better study the Patriots or else he's going to have problems with their defense.

I'm hoping for a Patriots/Green Bay Super Bowl though, but if the Ravens win, then I'm rooting for them to win it all.

I see the Pats and Broncos advancing; Pats beat Broncos to go to SB.

I see the Seahawks and Packers advancing; Hawks beat Packers to go to SB.

Pats beat Seahawks in SB.

I cannot recall a year when four playoff games in one weekend were being played in outdoor stadiums located in the north.

And what luck that all four games are going to have decent weather with the exception of the cold!

Key words "seeing" and "watching". lol

I despised playing in cold weather. That was even Texas' cold weather. I couldn't imagine playing in teen temps with will chills into the single digits.

As a defensive guy, I loved playing in the rain/mud.

Interesting. Wade Philips thinks cold and/or wet benefit the offensive lines over the defensive lines. Says D can't dig in, can't get off as quickly -- that anytime you can slow down the DL it gives OL an advantage.
