With Wild Card Weekend just moments away, there’s no better time than now to preview the NFL Playoffs in it’s entirety.

By Robby Sabo

The “tournament.” It’s a single word loaded with a bevy of meaningful thoughts and descriptions.

To some, it means the real season has arrived. To others, it brings more money to the table. To legends – such as Peyton Manning – it means one more chance.

The NFL Playoffs are finally here, and we can hardly wait.

Unlike most seasons, one side of the bracket was almost completely void of the superstar quarterback. For a hot moment it seemed as though Tom Brady would be the only elite signal-caller from an AFC perspective.

Thanks to the reinsertion of Mr. Manning, and the New York Jets choke job against the Buffalo Bills (allowing Ben Roethlisberger to sneak in), quarterback representation is suddenly more familiar.

Aaron Rodgers strolls into the NFC playoffs with much to prove. His Green Bay Packers could be playing the worst of all squads entering this weekend.

Instead of the more traditional Pack, the NFC sees two new powerhouses in the form of the Arizona Cardinals and Cam Newton’s Carolina Panthers.

But alas, these are the playoffs smack-dab in the midst of a hardened salary cap era. This means anything can happen.
