I love this time of year - just when I'm accepting the fact that I've seen the last of my Northwestern Wildcats for the season, we get access to all of the NFL games going on this weekend. As a non-Sunday Ticket gal (not an option for us here), there's little that makes me happier than full-on access to all games; no picking and choosing needed, no being at the mercy of local matchups...love it.
Another thing I love? Playing in the FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge - keep your fantasy football season going by joining in on the fun (password: librarian).
Anyway, it's a bright and sunny morning here in NYC (hey, we'll get above freezing!) and I've got a handful of playoffs articles for you:
