So the first match up for the best weekend in the NFL season is set. The NFC North reigns supreme this year, and one of the greatest rivalries in professional football is set to take its battle to the biggest stage.
The Green Bay Packers, led by their dynamic offense, take on the Chicago Bears and their punishing defense.
But this is no offense vs defense fight, each team offers enough on both sides of the ball for this game, this brawl, to be one of the better games we have seen this playoff season.
Following two of the worst divisional round games, where the Packers and Bears dominated their respective opponents, we will see the two most well rounded teams the NFC has to offer.And over in the AFC, we have the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the New York Jets.
While the game doesn’t have the history of hatred that the the NFC game has, it boast the most hated team in all the NFL, the New York Jets.
No team has more of a devout group of haters than the Jets, rivaling the Miami Heat as the most reviled team on American soil, if you call New Jersey part of America still.
Then there is the Pittsburgh Steelers, and no team has won, and won more often than the Steelers.
While the Patriots and Jets got all of the pub in the AFC, all the Steelers did this year was win games, and beat people into the ground while doing it.
So the NFL season has reached it’s apex, and while the final chapter will be written come February 6th, we have one more week of great football to go before we get there.
