Regardless of weather, I always assume the Cowboys have a good chance of losing games they should win. Iíve never seen a team choke more consistently in big games, and usually I enjoy it without reservation. But since in this case theyíre both playing for the right to play against a really good football team in the first round of the playoffs, and neither team is good at all, this may not be a title worth winning. Iím sure once the game starts, my native preferences will come to the fore and Iíll be yelling for the Eagles. But, at the moment, still thinking rationally, I have really mixed feelings...

Eagles/Cowboys will be in interesting game. The Eagles play like a team depleted of talent and are running on fumes. The Cowboys play like a team that's disinterested and whose players aren't about to expend any energy until it's absolutely necessary. I'm guessing Cowboys for this one.

Yep, the Patriots have traditionally played where the game was in hand by the end of the 3rd quarter (if not before) but when that doesn't happen they can make the big plays at the right time to pull off the victory.

Iím a diehard Ravens fan, but Iíve come to appreciate the Patriots this year since theyíve looked almost human. They are smart football players and coaches, and they know how to get after it. They should have lost yesterdayís game, but they didnít. Letís hope no cheating scandals plague them this year.

Browns were the only team to beat the Ravens handily and it was at Baltimore, so you never know.

Not trying to debate, but why should they have lost? They pretty much dominated the entire game but gave up 2 big plays to Buffalo which kept Buffalo in the game.

Not sure if the reference I'm looking at includes yesterday's game but Brady has the 2nd most 4th QB comebacks, 35 (tied with Drew Brees). Peyton Manning has the most at 43. I'm surprised Brady has that many considering all the times the Patriots had the lead heading into the 4th quarter.

Being a South Jersey native, I'm a diehard Eagles fan but agree it has been a disappointing season to say the least....but if they can pull a Dubya today against the Boys I can sleep well tonight!

We shall see...

Get a new squad and staff and if they don't make the playoffs their first year, immediately get rid of all of them and start over. No consistency and no building - just a crapshoot. It's like playing scrabble and instead of trying to find letters to build words, you simply trade all your tiles every single hand, hoping to get a seven letter word - and surprised when it doesn't happen.


They almost dumped Sean McDermott two years ago and barely decided to keep him and look at him now !

You need to make changes and we need to be patient and let improvement happen organically.

For us, these past three years have finally started to see that happening.
Yep. The Bills are a team coming on. Watch out! As a lifelong New England fan the one thing I always appreciated about Buffalo was their fan base. They are steadfast. I think they will be rewarded. Ownership counts at every level. Why are "Big" market teams in New York struggling and a "Small' market team like Buffalo excelling? I have a soft spot for Buffalo but I am unable to mention it in public as a Patriots fan. Onwards and upwards!

Larmar Jackson ... another 3 passing TDs and 100 yards rushing. I think the Ravens just clinched first in the conference with today's win?
