Will the Ravens beat the Patriots? Can the 49ers pull it off? We'll see! Lots of people are rooting for a "Har-bowl" this year, since the coaches of the Ravens and the 49ers are brothers--the Harbaugh brothers.
In any case, these should be great games. We've actually hired a babysitter today so that we can go watch an uninterrupted 49ers game. The whole Bay Area is pumped! So without further ado, here are the summaries of today's games:
Baltimore Ravens @ New England Patriots
Well, we remember last week how Tom Brady overturned the Tim Tebow bandwagon by crushing the Broncos 45-10 and tying the record for most touchdown passes in a single playoff game. (The record of six touchdowns is also held by Steve Young.) Brady is still on fire and doesn't seem to be slowing down at all. Last week the Ravens played a sloppy game but managed to beat the Texans. If Ravens can get the ball to RB Ray Rice consistently, the Ravens might have a chance.
New York Giants @ San Francisco 49ers
These two teams have already played each other this season. The 49ers did get the victory but it was a hard fought game with lots of good players injured. When they play today, it will almost be like two new, better teams going head to head. The Giants are coming off a great win by beating the Packers who were the Superbowl favorites AND the defending Superbowl champs. And, of course, we all remember last weeks Niner game over the Saints that will go down in history as one of the most exciting playoff games of all time.
Needless to say, both teams are on a roll with momentum building. The 49ers are hoping for a windy, rainy day (and as I look outside my window right now, they'll probably get their wish!) to slow down the passing attack of Eli Manning.
Enjoy the games today! Go Niners!!
