Four teams left in the NFC, just two teams will get to face each other to earn their ticket to Super Bowl XLV in Arlington, Texas. Who are these teams? What players take the lead? What players are injured? What team has a better chance to succeed in these Playoffs? Check it all out here plus enjoy the photos and videos after the jump.
Just like the American Football Conference (AFC) the National Football Conference (NFC) has four teams who will fight till death to get their way into the 45th Super Bowl at the Dallas Stadium. On Saturday, January 15th, the Green Bay Packers will face the Atlanta Falcons and on Sunday, January 16th is the match between the Seattle Seahawks to bury or be buried by the Chicago Bears, the two winning teams will see each other on January 23rd where only one will be standing to meet their AFC rival in Texas. What are the predictions for the first game?
The last time the Falcons faced the Packers during playoffs was back in the 1995 match that led to Super Bowl XXX, that time it was Green Bay who won. They faced the Cowboys who defeated them and who ended up winning the Super Bowl after they defeated the Steelers, how are they doing now?
Green Bay’s offense is way stronger than that of the Falcons, who beat them with their defense. The Packers count on Aaron Rogers, Brandon Jackson and Greg Jennings, who have done so much better than the Falcons’ Michael Turner, Roddy White and Matt Ryan and if the Packers manage to fool the Falcons’ defense these guys could definitely win, now how is that defense?
The great defensive players where the Falcons can give Green Bay a hard time consist of the fabulous John Abraham and Curtis Lofton, while Green Bay’s defense has Erik Walden, Charles Woodson and Charlie Peprah. Are you wondering about injuries on both teams? On the inured list for Green Bay we have Jason Spitz (calf), Frank Zombo (knee), Korey Hall (knee) and Brian Williams (knee), Thomas DeCoud (ankle), John Abraham (groin) and Jonathan Babineaux (shoulder). This match will be broadcast on Saturday, 8:00 p.m. on FOX and what are our predictions for this game? The Packers are more likely to win.
And we got that prediction right, the Packers defeated the Falcons 48-21.
Sunday’s game will be at 1:00 p.m on FOX and will feature the Seahawk’s great offensive players like Matt Hasselbeck, Mike Williams and Marshawn Lynch against the Bears’ offense that include Jay Cutler, Matt Forteand Johnny Knox. Their defensive play is brought by Brian Urlacher, Israel Idonije for the Bears and Marcus Trufant, Earl Thomas and David Hawthorne for the Seahawks.
Who are the injuries reported by these two teams? Chicago injuries include Anthony Adams (calf) and Pisa Tinoisamoa (knee). Seattle, on the other hand, has Lofa Tatupu (head). Predictions for Sunday’s game? The Bears all the way!! FOX will broadcast the game at 1:00 p.m.
And the Beard won indeed 35-24 to the Seattle Seahawks, they will face the Packers next weekend.
The Packers have won the Super Bowl three times (1967, 1968, 1997) and lost in 1998 to the Broncos. The Bears won it in 1986 and lost in 2007 to the Colts. The Falcons haven’t won any championships, and they did make an appearance to the SB in 1999 when the Broncos beat them, the same bitter experience tasted by the Seahawks when they lost in 2006 to the Steelers.
