2008-2009 NFL Playoff Matchups are set
The final Sunday in the 2008 NFL regular-season finally cleared up the playoff picture. The Bears, Broncos, Bucs, Cowboys, Jets and Patriots are all going home. While the Chargers, Dolphins, Eagles and Vikings are moving on to play this weekend in Wild Card round NFL playoff games.
If you turned back the clocks to August I think most experts would be shocked if you told them both the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots would miss the playoffs. Many had those two teams squaring off in the 2009 Superbowl in Tampa on February 1st. But the Patriots battled injuries all season and the Cowboys battled themselves, and both of them saw their playoff hopes exstinguished on the final day of the regular season.
The teams that are in the 2008-2009 NFL Playoffs are:
AFC: Tennessee Titans, Pittsburgh Steelers, Indianapolis Colts, San Diego Chargers, Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins.
NFC: Carolina Panthers, New York Giants, Atlanta Falcons, Arizona Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings.
