In this article I’ll start with the AFC. OFFENSE (no O-Line) QB...

Looking Back: How Good Was Calvin Johnson?

This should be the more intriguing of the two games this weekend strictly from a matchup standpoint. These are the two best and most consistent teams of the season. Neither team has a glaring weakness on either side of the ball. The way these offenses matchup against the defense is what makes this game truly interesting.

We have the final showdown between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. However, at this point it’s like Lennox Lewis pummeling a washed up Mike Tyson into submission.
