Super Bowl: Which is the best matchup?
The National Football League's divisional playoff round saw both No. 1 seeds from the NFC and AFC get unceremoniously bounced from the post-season. On Sunday the trash-talking New York Jets backed up their chatter by upsetting the heavily favoured New England Patriots, 28-21.
This sets up a regular-season rematch for the AFC title with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who rallied to beat Baltimore the previous day.
Over in the NFC, No. 6 Green Bay had no problems squashing top-ranked Atlanta on Saturday. The Packers now face old nemesis Chicago — which rolled past Seattle Sunday afternoon — in a good, old-fashion clash at Soldier Field.
But we're looking beyond the title games. If the Packers and Jets make it to Dallas, it will be the first time two No. 6 seeds will square off for the Super Bowl. The Packers also blanked New York 9-0 during the regular season on Halloween Sunday at the New Meadowlands Stadium. You can bet the Jets would love nothing more than to get back at the Packers while winning the franchise's first Super Bowl in 42 years.
How about a Steelers-Bears contest? Steeped with a tradition for hard-nose football, both teams also boast quarterbacks who can sling it with the best of them.
So which matchup would you like to see? Does another confrontation catch your eye?
