Well, here we are: Superbowl weekend. You’d think it was with the hype over this game, wouldn’t you? More often than not, a game as hyped up as this one doesn’t even come close to expectations. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a 14-13 final. We’ll see what we get when the only two good teams in the NFL, the New England Patriots* and the Indianapolis Colts, face off in high definition in Indy on Sunday.
Not two be overshadowed are two prime-time NFL contests between division rivals. Sunday Night features the Philadelphia Eagles hosting the Dallas Cowboys, which is always a highly emotional contest, especially when the game in is Philly and the fans have been drinking in the parking lot for the past 12 hours and their favorite son T.O. is coming to town. The Monday Night game features the Steelers taking on the Ravens. When the season started, this looked like it had the potential for a great contest, but so far this season it is taking a miracle for the Ravens to score over 10 points. The Steelers will probably rout them, but feel free to watch anyway.
