The NFL is ready to get going again. The playoffs are here! The real playoffs, not that weaksauce stuff we saw last week. No easy matchups here. No cakewalks for anyone. Just good, tough, competitive football -- the kind of football we all love.
The weekend will start with Patriots vs. Ravens and continue with Seahawks vs. Panthers. On Sunday, we'll see the Packers take on the Cowboys, and the Colts go head-to-head with the Broncos. Sounds like good fun to me.
And on Monday we'll get to see Marcus Mariota and his Oregon Ducks face off against Ohio State in what is likely Mariota's final college game before he turns pro -- a pretty relevant game for Buccaneers fans, who could see Mariota in pewter and red next season.
