Chicago 27 Atlanta 17
The Falcons struggles in the post-season continue. At least one defensive TD for the Bears.
Philadelphia 35 Seattle 24
The dream ends for @DangeRussWilson16 and the Seahawks. The Eagles and their many weapons look scary in a big road win.
Dallas 41 Chicago 17
Think of the weight being lifted off of Steve Young's shoulders. Now replace Young with Tony Romo. Huge playoff win for the Burlington native.
GB 37 Philadelphia 34
The Packers win one of the greatest post-season games ever on Mason Crosby's 43 yard field goal as time expires.
Dallas 33 GB 28
Heartbreak in Dallas for the Packers, as their drive late in the fourth quarter is halted by a fumble. A problem in the pre-season haunts the Pack at the worst possible time.
The Cowboys advance to the Super Bowl to face.....
1. New England
Houston 41 Oakland 24
The Texans pull away late with another JJ Watt playoff touchdown. The resurgent Raiders aren't quite ready for a road playoff win.
Denver 28 Pittsburgh 24
Manning and the Broncos overcome a sluggish first half to beat the Steelers, picking apart Pittsburgh's Ryan Clark-less defense in the second half.
New England 31 Denver 28
Brady overcomes Manning touchdown drive late to position the Pats for a Gustkowsky field goal as time expires.
Houston 31 Baltimore 21
Regrets continue in Baltimore as they just never show up versus the Texans.
New England 17 Houston 14
Bitter New England cold stifles two of the league's prolific offenses. The normally generous Pats D holds late, as Shayne Graham's 50 yard game tying attempt late in the fourth quarter misses wide right.
It's the Cowboys and the Pats in Super XLVII.
