San Francisco 49ers
Last year, the 49ers made an improbable run to the Super Bowl, before falling one play short of reaching the ultimate team goal. They lost to the Baltimore Ravens, a more experienced team that rode momentum all the way to a Championship. This year it’s San Francisco who fits this description and unlike last year, the Niners have everything in place to get past the rest of the NFC.
Two of the NFL’s most decorated franchises will meet this Sunday when the Packers and 49ers meet in a NFC Wild Card matchup. The winner will move on in the playoffs, while the loser will face a disappointing end to a season that started with much higher aspirations.
The 2013 NFL regular season is coming to a close and there is a lot going on besides just the playoffs, and most of the news actually has to do with one of the worst teams in the league, the Houston Texans.
The NFL has seen its share of bad calls in the past, but they are bound to happen because no-one is perfect and people make mistakes. 2013 appears to be the year of a lot more referee mistake than usual though and another big gaffe happened on Sunday.
The NFL is full of common news bits such as injuries and signings, but there are also the weird tales that make it even more intriguing. Who would have thought that someone could make so much money and never get drafted? And who would have thought a referee would be banned for trash talking?
There is a lot of anger going around in the NFL lately, and some of it is quite justified. Some of it, on the other hand, is just incredibly strange and uncalled for.
There were a number of big headlines from Sunday’s action, and sometimes they need to be broken down to make sense of everything. Some of those headlines include gruesome injuries, a rookie finding the pine, and a storm delaying a game for almost two hours.
The NFL isn’t always fun and games as sometimes it can lead to some scary, frightening and downright sad situations. This week was filled with court cases, injuries and Europe getting NFL action that they may not even want anymore.
