There was an epic ice storm, a dancing dot-com chimp, a nail-biter of a game and an All-Pro’s arrest on murder charges. Super Bowl XXXIV, at the turn of the century, was something else. Perhaps that’s why it took the NFL so long to return to Atlanta.
Been there, done that: Again in 2018, Philly called on its modest (but statistically mind-blowing) backup QB to save the season. Now heading into the playoffs, he and the Super Bowl champs are, justifiably, loaded with confidence. After all, they’ve seen it before.
It was an uncharacteristic late-season loss for the Patriots against the Steelers, pushing New England down to the third seed in the AFC playoffs. But despite the on-field struggles (14 penalties!), there’s no counting this team out.
Odell Beckham Jr. did it all in the Giants’ weird win against the Bears, catching a touchdown and throwing a touchdown. But the receiver also found himself on the wrong side of an onside kick, which drew plenty of criticism.
