And then there were two. Two teams that will end another football season two weeks from now. My prognostication was the worst it has ever been. I, the unbeliever, could not imagine the Arizona Cardinals but I could imagine the Pittsburgh Steelers. For the tournament, I was a paltry 5-5. Ouch city. That means that I am the inhabitant of
Final Score: Cardinals 32, Eagles 25.
This game was a tale of trade-offs in the first half. The Eagles had the ball three times and the Cardinals had the ball three times. The Eagles had two field goals and a missed field goal. The Cardinals had three touchdowns. That means that the Eagles defense lost the game but it is so tempting to talk about the missed opportunities let go by the Eagles.
The Eagles have been in four of the last five NFC Championships. They are only a few wins away from being the NFC’s version of the Buffalo Bills! I find it terribly strange that the only time the Eagles made it to the big game was with T.O. as their wide receiver. I guess this means the Eagles are just one big playmaker away from winning it all. I hope that they see that and bolster their roster. The team is perpetually so close.
Speaking of playmakers, how about that Larry Fitzgerald? The Arizona Cardinals played “I have Larry Fitzgerald and you don’t …” football and it worked quite well. They made the third-best defense look sluggish in the first half and that was good enough to get the ball last. And when you get the ball last, just like NERF football in my youth, you win.
becomes the first 9-7 team to make it to the Big Game since the Los Angeles Rams in 1979. Congratulations.

This was appropriate because the game was played in the icy confines of Heinz field. The Steelers had not won a championship game the last two times it was at home so this time they cashed in on home-field advantage.
The game was rough and the hitting was monstrous. The teams played for the third time this year, and just like wanting to beat your best friend, they played with passion. In the end, the Ravens may have just not enough defense left in the tank as Pittsburgh drove for two field goals and a TD to take a 13-0 lead.
I guess those Larry Fitzgerald’s are really hard to come by or everyone would have one.
With only two, the dance seems rather familiar. A crazy offense in
