Happy Birthday Muhammad Ali & The Divisional Playoffs Recaps


The three time heavy weight boxing champion of the world, better known as the greatest ever turns 70 years old today. The rapper Drake says in his Forever lyrics that his last name is Ever and his first name is Greatest, but Muhammad Ali had that name way before Drake was even born. 

Muhammad Ali is one of a kind and will never be duplicated. Ali has won 56 of his 61 fights, winning 37 of them with Knock Out's. Ali will always be known for his crafty rhymes such as I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. He will forever be the people's champion.

The NY Giants pulled out a stunning upset in the NFC Divisional game on Sunday night. The highly favored defending Super Bowl champions, Green Bay Packers, were sent home in a 37-20 shocking lost.

The Green Bay Packers practically handed the game over to the Giants with all the fumbles and drop passes they had in the game. The Giants not only stunned the Packers but the nation with a Hail Mary touchdown right before half time, which left the Packers trailing 10-20 instead of 10-13.

The Giants came out in the second half still on fire. Eli Manning threw a touchdown pass to Mario Manningham giving the Giants a 30 to 13 lead. Then Rodgers came right back and threw for a touchdown pass to Donald Driver cutting the lead 30 to 20. The Packers then tried a onside kick which the Giants recovered and scored a touchdown to put away the game.

Tebow time came to an end in the AFC Divisional game Saturday night, as the New England Patriots handed the Denver Broncos a beat down no one saw coming. Oh sure the New England Patriots were favored to win, but you couldn't tell the Tebow mania nation that.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots came out throwing punches. It was touchdown after touch down after touch down.  Tom Brady set a all time record for throwing for five touch downs in the first half of a playoff game.

The final score of the game was New England 45 and the Denver Broncos 10. The New England Patriots are on the verge of their fifth Super Bowl appearance in eleven season, which they won three with Tom Brady as their quarter back.

The San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints put on one heck of a show in the NFC Divisional game Saturday night.  At the end of the 1st quarter the 49ers were up 14 to 0 and it looked like it was going to be a long night for the Saints, but in the second quarter Drew Brees and his Saints started marching back with two touchdowns of their own. These two touch downs sent the Saints into half time only down by 3 with a score of 17-14.

In the fourth quarter the Saints were down 25 to 29. With a little over 2:00 minutes left in the game Drew Brees took the Saints down the field and completed a 66 yard touch down pass to Jimmy Graham giving the Saints a 32 to 29 lead. The 49ers got the ball back with 1:37 on the clock and their quarter back, Alex Smith, said what you can do Drew Brees I can do better. Smith completed a 14 yard pass to Vernon Davis with 9 seconds left in the game that ended the hopes of the Saints being able to march into the Super Bowl.
