If it wasn’t for the fantastic game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Green Bay Packers, I was going to say this Wild card Weekend of the NFL really sucked. The Dallas Cowboys / Philadelphia Eagles game was a no-contest. Once Dallas reached the two-score differential, it was all over. The New York Jets / Cincinnati Bengals wasn’t as close as the score reflects. The Baltimore Ravens dominated the New England Patriots on defense.
After the first quarter, I was ready to turn the game off. Green Bay was already behind by two scores and it seemed that Arizona was going to run away with it. However, when the second-half came around, it was a non-stop scoring blitz. After 60-minutes, the two teams accounted for 90 points and set the game into overtime. I was hoping for a continuation of the high-powered offense as was through the first 4 quarters, but alas, Arizona’s defense swiped the ball and ran it in for the winning score.
May the rest of the playoffs be as entertaining as the Packers game.
