NFL Playoffs are set

The 2008 NFL regular season has come to an end, and what a strange season it has been. We have seen the first ever team go 0-16 ~ Detroit Lions, we have seen an 11-5 team ~ New England Patriots miss the playoffs, while an 8-8 team ~ San Diego Chargers has a home playoff game. We saw the biggest turnaround in NFL history as the Miami Dolphins who were 1-15 last season, went 11-5 and won the AFC East, the 10 game turnaround is the most ever! There are 7 teams in the playoffs this year, that missed the playoffs last year. Last Years defending Super Bowl Champions ~ New York Giants, look poised to repeat, they have home field advantage throughout the playoffs in the NFC.

There have also been some monumental collapses also, the New York Jets are sitting home after starting the season 8-3 and handing the 10-0 Tennessee Titans their first loss of the season. The Denver Broncos looked like a lock to win the AFC West in week 13, but the 4-8 San Diego Chargers managed to catch them and end their season. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers looked like they were headed for home field advantage throughouth the playoffs , but they lost their last 4 games and are on the golf course already, and let us not forget the biggest collapse of all, the over hyped and over rated Dallas Cowboys ~ the early season favorites to win Super Bowl 43 are home after a dissapointing 9-7 season. They had a "Win and In" game against their division rivals the Philadelphia Eagles, all they had to do was beat the down trodden Eagles, and they were in the playoffs, instead, they got beat 44-6. To say Dallas has some December and January woes is putting it mildly. To put it in perspective, since 1997, the Arizona Cardinals have more playoff wins, and as many playoff appearances as the Dallas Cowboys. Tony Romo's record in December is 5-8, and he is 0-2 on the playoffs with some memorably awful games including the fumbled hold on what would have been the go ahead field goal against the Seattle Seahawks.

The final seedings for the 2008 NFL Playoffs are:



The 2008 NFL Playoff Schedule is as follows:

BCS Match Ups Are Set

The 2008 college football regular season is wrapped up, now let the Bowl Games Begin!!

The BCS announced the matchups for this years bowls, and headlining the games, is the No. 1 Florida Gators vs. No. 2 Oklahoma Sooners January 8th in South Florida. Oklahoma's record setting offense will try to out duel all world quarterback and defending Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow, and the mighty Gators offense. Oklahoma is the first college football team in HISTORY to score 700 points in one season, and the 1st to score 60 points 5 games in a row. Tebow, last year was the first sophomore to win the Heisman trophy, and his name is on the ballot again this year. This is a great matchup of perrenial NCAA powerhouses.

In the other games,the surprising Cincinnati Bearcats face off with ACC Champs, the Virginia Tech Hokies in the Fed Ex Orange Bowl on January 1st.

The Rose bowl finds Big 10 champ Penn State and Joe Paterno going up against the USC trojans under Pete Carroll who are in the Rose Bowl for the 4th consecutive year.

This years BCS Buster ~ the Utah Utes travel down to New Orleans to take on former #1 Alabama Crimson Tide in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

The always exciting Fiesta Bowl squares Ohio State against the snubbed Texas Longhorns, speaking of snubbed, why is a 2 loss Ohio State team in a BCS game over the undefeated Boise State Broncos, who just 2 years ago put on the greatest performance in college football history at this exact same Bowl Game?? Just another of the many questions that lead to the best answer......College Football Playoffs!!
