NFL Divisional Playoffs Open Thread

The NFL has two games on tap today. If you've even glanced at a TV with ESPN on it, undoubtedly you'll have seen that Tim Tebow and the Broncos will play the New England Patriots tonight at 8pm. Once again this week ESPN embarrassingly dedicated an hour of Sportscenter to the cult of Tebow and mentioned his name 160 times. If Denver were to beat the Pats tonight, ESPN may just scrap its format altogether.

Three weeks ago, the Pats went to Denver and blew them out.

Stuck in the most irrelevant time slot of the weekend is what should be a pretty good game. The Saints travel to San Fran at 4:30 today in classic irresistible force vs immovable object matchup. The 49ers #2 ranked defense will try to stop Drew Brees and the Saints #2 ranked offense. The X factor here is how the Saints perform outside. Dome teams are awful outside in the playoffs and the Saints themselves put on one of the great choke jobs of all time last year losing to the 7-9 Seahawks. San Francisco isn't quite Seattle however and it should be a pretty comfortable 60 degrees around game time.
