A pair of sophomore QB standouts battle two of the league's most seasoned (and Hall of Fame ready...) veterans in today's two divisional round matchups.
Narratives, narratives, everywhere!
Brees v. Wilson.
The rematch three years later.
Beast Quake 2.0.
Seattle's pass defense against the Saints' aerial attack.
The Saint's porous rushing defense against one of the best ground games in the league.
Yay, playoffs football.
Plenty of narratives, but less flashy football with a lot of question marks.
It looks like a game of #weather, so be prepared for plenty of discussion on that front. And yes, if you're buying into the thread that Andrew Luck is the second coming of Peyton Manning, the playoff/outdoor weather thing would be a good thing to overcome early in his career.
And while Indianapolis was able to mount one of the greatest comebacks in sports history last go round, they won't have a home crowd to help them this time. Might not want to give Bradychick a four touchdown lead because the Patriot Way OHGODTHEVOMITISGOINGEVERYWHERE.
It's playoff football. Settle in and enjoy. (and go Saints...)
