Then the Chargers had to travel to sub arctic Cincy the following week. That game was over before it started.

1990-91 NFC: New York Giants 15, San Francisco 49ers 13

Long awaited rematch after SF (10-1) went against the NYG (10-1) in week 13 of the season. SF won in that one 7-3.

They did make it a low risk contract.....

$1.3 mill if he makes the opening day roster. If Carl hits all incentives the total payout could reach 6.5 mill and a second year.

Great game but that was for the NFC title rather than a divisional game. One of the most one sided divisional round games I ever saw was the Giants 49-3 thrashing of the Niners back in January of ‘87.

Who the heck am I going to root for in game one......the Tit-hens were stolen from Allegra's Houston Oilers and the Poe-pounders were stolen from cleveland gop's Clowns...

I guess I hate the Poe-pounders worse...

...but then again, the way my pickem's have been going lately......maybe I should root for the Poe-pounders...they'd be guaranteed to lose then.

You also remember the 1981 Raiders/Browns divisional game played in wind chills of -40 to -45. Raiders win 14-12 when Brian Sipe throws an ill-advised pass inthe endzone that was intercepted. The team had driven the ball right down the field to the Oakland 12 when the play, known as Red Right 88 was called.

Then coach Sam Rutigliano chose not to go for a field goal, as kicker Don Cockroft missed one of similar distance on the same side of the fieldearlier in the game.

I am not a huge NFL fan but hands down the 74 Oakland Miami playoff game was the best I ever saw. Stabler vs Griese with the lead changing hands a number of times. Stabler throwing the winning touchdown while he was being taken down almost on his knees when he released the ball is also probably the greatest play I have ever seen as well.

Maybe it’s the Ron Jeremy look that Jeff Fisher has displayed that has me taking the 3 points. We shall see

You're right....and the divisional and conference games are much, much better games than the Super Bowl (although there have been some exceptions).

I missed the Janet Jackson Exposé since the SB halftime show just ain't football and I was in the kitchen for the 2nd half lineup and replacements......

Ok....game time. I pick the Titans but with reservations. Collins is a hot/cold QB.

Dash just got smashed twice.

Good defensive stands on both sides early on.

Touchdown Oilers!!!!

Dash came up big on that drive. And a stupid penality away from the play to keep the drive going.

Baltimore needs to respond with a decent drive now and squelch some of the Titans momentum. On the defensive side they gotta get more pressure on Collins.
Collins can pick you apart given time, but he will struggle big time under pressure. Might have to take some chances with some blitzes on early downs.
I really like both these teams.
Jeff Fisher long time Eagle Defensive coordinater with Buddy Ryan’s Eagles and then South Jersey native Joe Flacco and x-Eagle special team coah Jonn Harbaugh.

***************************

It is, and this has been a monster drive, starting inside the one. And the rRavens have been fiercely contesting every inch of it.

Pressure + Collins = Turnover
I’ve rooted for this dude since his days at Penn State.
Give him time though and he’ll pick you to pieces.

A great drive by the Titans ends with a Raven pick.

But they don’t take advantage of it.

So the Titans-Ravens first have has only 7pts each.
Ravens get two turnovers...Titans have 9,000 yards of offense but only 7 pts...

DeFense wins games.
