I've watched The Run over and over again. Online, on ESPN, NFL Network's re-air, NFLN's studio shows and Inside the NFL, the key segment of which I rewound repeatedly just to watch the reaction of players and fans in the background. When Beast Mode scores and the screaming hits an even higher crescendo, every single time, I get chills. Not just a little rush, but goosebump-raising chills. The Run is so, so sick. It is beautiful.
Thank you, Marshawn, for being such a badass. You have given us this dream.
#6 Green Bay Packers at #1 Atlanta Falcons, 5:00 PM Pacific, FOX. Line: Atlanta -1.5/-1. Over/under: 43.5. Referee: John Parry.
Joe Buck and Troy Aikman in the booth from a raucous and antiquated Georgia Dome. A road win by the sixth-seeded Pack keeps a home title game scenario in play for the 206. Green Bay is scary but we really don't want Atlanta. Careful what you wish for because you might just get it.
