Just three games left in this NFL season; there were times we wondered if we'd get here. The football gods have been kind, too, giving us a pair of Hall of Fame veterans in one matchup and two of the league's very best in the other one. Everyone's got their favorite quarterback and team this weekend, but there can be only two.   more »

Fantasy Index Weekly: Championship Game Preview: Green Bay

The only ding is that they're facing the team that beat them soundly back in Week 6, plus that Tom Brady guy.   more »

But from there on it was all Tampa Bay, with the Bucs scoring on a defensive touchdown and also the next four times their offense had the ball. It was Green Bay's worst game of the season.   more »

Philip Rivers announced his retirement today, and I like the timing. At 39, he’s right at the end of the road physically, but he was able to go out on a high note, putting together a credible final season with the Colts.  more »
