Traditionally this is the weekend where some of the NFL's greatest games have been played. Every year we see replays of classics like the Dolphins-Chiefs playing the longest game in NFL history or the immacualte reception. What I'm interested in is your opinions of some great divisional playoff games that haven't received their fair share of fame over the years. One game I don't think gets talked about nearly enough was the Jets-Browns 2 OT game in January 1987. For those not familiar with this game Cleveland overcame a ten point deficit in the final minutes to eventually win the game on a Mark Moseley FG in the double overtime. It was an incredible game that has been overshadowed by the fact that the following week John Elway crushed the hearts of Cleveland fans with "the drive" in the AFC Championship game.

Well that's a game that I think has been overlooked. What about you?

I'm picking the four (rested) home teams this weekend.

The "in" pick is Balt. over Tenn, but I think the Titans will win comfortably.

Last I saw Carolina was a 9.5 point favorite over Arizona. It should be higher.

The home teams won’t sweep this weekend...that’s the only prediction I’ll make.

I agree. I think every game other than that one will be a great game, and Carolina is just going to run it down the Cardinals’ throats.

I’m hoping the Titans win today. I detest Ray Lewis, who I believe is a thug and a psychopath.

It’s too bad that’s the prime time game tonight. I’m sure Fox would have prefered the PHI-NYG game instead.

the Cards won’t be layin down regardless the majority opinion

..these two already played major league smash mouth this season

.. the real game factor will be the weather restricting pass routes on both sides

January 10th - 8:15PM ET Cardinals/Panthers.

Rarely watch late games, unless it's the Broncos, and even then it's a chore. Many of these games get stretched out beyond 3.5 hours ... how can a game with 3 minutes left on the clock take 12 to 15 minutes to complete? Happens all the time.

Agree with you about Ray Lewis; however, if Ravens win today and SD wins tomorrow, have tickets to see the AFC Championship in SD next Sunday!!

And my guys? Did... they beat the spread this time?

GMTA. That’s the same thing I told my husband last weekend. I want the Ravens to lose because of Lewis. Of course, they didn’t lose, so I’m trusting the Titans to take them out of the running.

Help me out someone. What exactly is a Titan? Anyways lets look at the Cardinals-Panthers game. The cardinal can soar and fly nicely. However let’s face it the cardinal is a somewhat unattractive bird plus the word cardinal has been adopted by a religion that excludes gays and women. The panther is a adorable animal. Who could not love a panther (as long as your not in Pittsburgh). SO I say you have to tae the Panthers over the Cardinals in tonights game. IMHO.

Today is the 27 year anniversary of the Ice Bowl or Frozen Bowl between the San Diego Chargers and the Cincinnati Bengals. That game was played in a 59 below zero wind chill. And of course later that day was the Montana to Clark pass to beat the Cowboys in the 1981(2) NFC Championship game.

I remember that game well. It’s called the “Freezer Bowl,” and the Chargers got beat easily, 27 - 7. Can you imagine sitting in the stands in -59 degree weather?

I went to a Browns-Bengals game in Cleveland in 1990 and the wind chill was 30 below. They sometimes show that 1981 AFC Championship game on the NFL network. It was cold yet it was a sunny day. I remember at the time I was a student at Ohio St and I walked (I didn’t have a car) almost 3 miles to go to church. The morning was a rough walk to church. LOL

Looks like it is once again possible for all Pennsylvania Super Bowl. It would only be fitting though since we produce the best quarterbacks the league has ever seen.

one forgotten game is the NFC divisional game in San Francisco when Roger Staubach led the Cowboys to two TD’s in the last two minutes of the game..one reason it is probably forgotten is that the Cowboys got whipped next week in Washington in the NFC title game..but it was quite a comeback..

Good job mainepatsfan!!!

I can tell you I was at that game in ‘87, sitting in the endzone opposite the dawg pound in old Municipal Stadium.

Of course everyone remembers how the game ended, but here’s some other tidbits to consider.......

The game should have never gone into overtime to begin with. We know Mark Mosley won the game with a FG, but in regulation time Mosley missed not 1, but 2 very short FG’s, the first one a 30 yarder and the second only slightly longer.

Mosley kicked a sort FG to send the game to OT. What set it up 2 plays earlier. with about a minute to go was a long completion from Bernie Kosar to Webster Slaughter inside the Jets 5. The Browns players then proceeded to celebrate burning 30 seconds of time, and forcing a incomplete pass on 1st down. Since the Browns had used all their timeouts on defense, Mosley had to kick the FG.

Mosley’s 2nd FG miss was in the 1st OT. And finally after watching Kosar throw for 487 yards, he kicked the game winning FG to end it!!!

Weekend predictions.........

RAVENS 20 TITANS 13

CARDINALS 24 PANTHERS 28

IGGLES 23 GIANTS 16

CHARGERS 13 STILLERS 24

The coldest outdoor sporting I ever attended was probably around 50 degrees. That's right, plus 50. That's what happens when one attends games only at the Rose Bowl, L.A. Coliseum, Dodger Stadium, Anaheim Stadium, and San Diego's old Jack Murphy Stadium.

Remember the Eagles/Bears fog bowl in 1988? Was that a wildcard game or divisional? I forget.....
