NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Playoffs Schedule and More
January 19, 2015
What a great day of NFL football we had yesterday. The NFC and AFC representatives for the Super Bowl on February 1 have been set, and that makes just one (meaningful) game left on the schedule. That said, let’s check out some of the headlines out there and see what’s going on out there.
Sunday Football Wrap-Up: It was an entertaining day of football yesterday, and we saw some incredible things out on the field. The game everyone’s talking about this morning was between the Seahawks and the Packers. Seattle was outplayed the vast majority of the game, but was able to stage an incredible comeback (spurred by an onside kick recovery late in the fourth) to eventually take it 28-22 in overtime. For Green Bay, it was as stunning and unbelievable a loss as you’ll ever see.
The other game wasn’t much fun to watch if you’re not a Patriots fan. New England flat-out destroyed the Colts by a score of 45-7, giving QB Tom Brady his sixth Super Bowl appearance.
Patriots-Seahawks should be a pretty good matchup, so it’ll be an entertaining Super Bowl.

The Jets’ Woody Johnson is reportedly being investigated for tampering, thanks to some comments he made about former Jets (and current Patriots) CB Darrelle Revis.
Johnson said he’d “love for Darrelle to come back,” which could be construed as a violation of the league’s tampering policy. We’ll have to see what comes of the investigation.
In approximately one month, the Broncos’ Peyton Manning will be undergoing a physical to determine his health heading into the 2015 season.
Whether or not he’ll even want to play is another matter entirely, as he’s reportedly still undecided about continuing in the NFL. Prepare for a long off-season of Peyton speculation until he makes his official announcement.
