The New Orleans Saints are ready to head to Philadelphia, face the Eagles, battle the cold, and forget about their road woes. They are looking healthier than they have this entire season and have an injury list that is extremely short, but there is one big name that sits on it.
The Cincinnati Bengals had an unexpectedly successful season with an AFC North crown and a trip to the playoffs. Now, they’re facing off with a San Diego Chargers team they beat just a few weeks ago, but they may be facing them without a number of players.
The Indianapolis Colts are heading into the playoffs with a rather lengthy injury report, and there are indeed a number of big names listed on it. The good news is that most of the names are listed simply as precautionary measures and not for serious reasons.
The Green Bay Packers have had trouble stopping the 49ers in their last two meetings. Now they have to try and beat them in the playoffs while facing injury issues on defense.
The Philadelphia Eagles will need their defensive secondary to be on their toes this weekend with Drew Brees leading the New Orleans Saints in to town with a monster of a passing offense. Fortunately for the Eagles, the defensive backfield is getting healthier in time for the playoffs.
The big question in the Carolina/Atlanta game is exactly where will the Falcons end up on the 2014 NFL Draft position.
With the news that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be out at least one more week with an injury, Atlanta’s chances to win their fourth game of the season just got a lot better.
With only 10 total players listed in this week’s injury report between the Bills and Falcons, it’s time for the starters to show why they were named starters.
With just three days off between games this week, there is certainly no rest for the weary Falcons as they look to face off against their NFC South rival for the second time this season.
As if losing Julio Jones for the rest of the season and Roddy White being used primarily as a decoy due to his nagging injuries wasn’t enough, Atlanta may also have to make due without Tony Gonzalez and Julio’s replacement, Harry Douglas this week against the Tampa Bay Bucs.
