It all comes down to this, one last Sunday to close the 2014 NFL regular season.
With most fantasy seasons now completed attention this Sunday focuses on daily games, with several strategies in play and all 32 teams in action.
It is one thing to be embarrassed by the Seattle Seahawks on your own turf before a national television audience, it is another realizing Colin Kaepernick has regressed as spectacularly as Robert Griffin III over the past two years. And it is quite another for the National Broadcasting Corporation to set up shop on your team’s midfield logo and have Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman eat turkey.
With Aaron Rodgers healthy, the Green Bay Packers entered the 2014 season with expectations of contending for a Super Bowl title.
However, they’ll have to improve significantly if they want to dethrone the defending champion Seattle Seahawks should they meet again in the postseason.
The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks were the NFL’s top two teams all season long. They were also two of the more fascinating squads to follow as the year unfolded. Now, they will face off in Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium on Sunday and there are a ton of reasons to watch this edition of the big game.
Week 17 will be more exciting than usual.
There are still four playoff spots up for grabs, with just one team locked into a playoff position and likely resting its regulars. The end result will be one day, 16 games, and a lot of drama.
