Let’s take a look at five events in sports over the last year more surprising than Beck’s shocking GRAMMYs Album of the Year win.
The New England Patriots are Super Bowl Champions and one of the first words that comes to mind when describing this one is unbelievable.
Rich covered Mitt Romney’s decision not to run for President next year, Pennsylvania Treasurer Rob McCord’s resignation, and Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman’s Super Bowl Sunday dilemma.
Betting on the Super Bowl is undeniably an uncertainty and a risk. A much less risky bet would be that Paul Bessire’s PredictionMachine.com has the most thorough and sound reasoning for why the Seattle Seahawks will defeat the New England Patriots.
Rich discussed the criticism received by the film ‘American Sniper,’ and why showering everyday is bad for your skin. He talked to Dr. Paul Boxer from Rutgers University about the challenges to local curfews, Jerry Price from Princeton University about running up the score in a basketball game, and Army Sniper Nicholas Irving about his book, The Reaper.
The Patriots made it look easy in advancing to their sixth Super Bowl of the Belichick/Brady era.
Yes, it is a cliche, but the game is never over until it’s actually over as Seattle comes from behind to advance to the Super Bowl.
A trip to the Super Bowl is on the line.
The Green Bay Packers listed both their starting quarterback (Aaron Rodgers) and running back (Eddie Lacy) on the injury report as limited participants in Thursday’s practice. The team estimated that the two players would have been limited on Friday as well and gave both a probable chance to play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in the NFC championship game. The Packers list four players on their injury report and the Seahawks list seven (two not injury related) on theirs.
If Seattle wants a second straight trip to the Super Bowl, here are three vital areas to focus on.
The Green Bay Packers played the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1 as the first game of the season. This week, the Packers will look to avenge their 36-16 loss in the opener. Both teams are different teams than in that first meeting, but Bovada sees the Seahawks as 7.5 point favorites at home.
The Carolina Panthers got through the Wild Card round of the playoffs and are now faced with the defending Super Bowl champions in the divisional round. Luckily, their injuries are nothing but a handful as everyone is needed for the match-up with the Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle must make the most of their home-field advantage against the Panthers.
The Carolina Panthers know they have a hard test ahead of them in the Seattle Seahawks, but facing them at CenturyLink Field will make it even tougher. To prepare for one of the loudest places on earth, they amped up the sound at practice.
The Green Bay Packers do not have many holes in their game as they enter the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the NFC. However, one is their blocking in the kicking game. They allowed more combined blocked field goals, extra point attempts and punts than they had in the previous five seasons combined.
