NFL Sunday Preview: Packers vs. Eagles

This matchup should be a good one with two of the top QB's facing off in Michael Vick and Aaron Rodgers.  Vick finished just behind Rodgers in passer rating for the year.  However, Vick is clearly the more dynamic and versatile player with his speed and ability to run the ball.  The Packers were fortunate to win this matchup in week 1 when Kolb went out with a concussion.  Vick nearly led the Eagles to a 2nd half comeback.

The Packers have lost 4 straight road playoff games including a 2004 loss to the Eagles that they would love to put in the past.  The Green Bay defense held the Eagles big playmakers, DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy, in check in their first meeting this year.  

Vick and Eagles have too much firepower and will have the home crowd behind them.  Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have not been good in close games this year and will have all the pressure they could ask for in this afternoon's game.

NFL Saturday Preview: Jets vs. Colts

Rex Ryan has waited a year for this moment.  He says this matchup between the Jets and Colts is personal and that he's going to Lucas Oil Stadium to win.  Despite all the distractions the Jets have faced this year with player troubles and foot fetishes, the Jets still went 11-5 in the regular season.

Manning has destroyed Rex Ryan's defenses in the past throwing for 12 TD's and only 2 INT's.  The Colts needed a game winning FG from Adam Vinatieri last week against the Titans to clinch their playoff berth.  Mark Sanchez is fully healthy and ready to go.  He will face a Colts defense who is yielding about 5 more points then when he faced them last season.

If the Jets win they will head to New England to face Tom Brady and the Patriots.  The Colts have been good at home this season while the Jets have been equally as good on the road.  This game could come down to the wire.
