Yes, let’s put a game in Green Bay in January on it at night, because it worked so well the last time #TomCoughlinsmeltingface.

Kevin (or anyone), please clear something up for me. Who do the byes play in “Week 2” of the playoffs? In other words, if an “upset” happens and #6 Minnesota beats #3 Green Bay, does #1 seed Atlanta then play #6 Minnesota, or is it already predetermined that they would play the winner of #5 Seattle vs #4 Washington? I have read differing opinions of this. Thank you.

It’s not predetermined. After the two Wild-Card games for a particular conference, the no. 1 seeded team plays the higher seeded team of the two that won.

So if (5) Seattle and (6) Minnesota win, (1) Atlanta gets (6) Minnesota and (2) San Francisco gets (5) Seattle. Basically, the no. 1 seed gets the “worst” team based on seeding.

All my just found knowledge of a superbowl of such just don’t seem right lucky guess Atlanta Over New England 24/17
