NFL Wild Card Sunday Games: An Open Thread

Some chilly foot-baw.

NFL: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve got two more football games for you football-game-lovers to watch today; just like yesterday, the second one is better than the first one. The only problem is that the second one will likely run into dinner time, so make decisions at your own risk!

The first game features the Steelers, who are quite literally incapable of losing (believe me, I grew up in Pittsburgh) against a Ryan Tannehill-less Miami Dolphins team. It will will be 17 degrees in Pittsburgh on Sunday. The Dolphins are from Florida. You tell me how you think that one ends.

In the second game, the Packers host the Giants at Lambeau Field, a stadium that somehow becomes way cooler in the playoffs. The Packers are playing as well as any team in the league right now, but if there’s one thing in the entire universe you can’t predict it’s Eli Manning in the playoffs.

In case you want to watch both games, here’s how you can do so:
