Hilton Odds to Win Super Bowl XLV
Cowboys Stadium-Arlington, Texas
Sunday, February 6, 2011
This year’s Pro Bowl has undergone several changes. For the first time since 1979, the game will not be played in Honolulu as this year it moves to Miami where a Pro Bowl record crowd of 70,000+ is expected. Also for the first time the game will not be played after the Super Bowl therefore all the Indianapolis and New Orleans players cannot participate in the game. The game will move back to Honolulu in two years and the NFL is meeting this week to decide the where the game will be played from there out.
This year Dallas and Philadelphia have the most participants with 9 followed by Minnesota with 8. Super Bowl teams Indianapolis and New Orleans each had 7 players named but again cannot participate in tonight’s game.
The NFC leads the all-time series 20-19 after winning the last two.
Today’s blog gives you all the past Pro Bowl results since 1971 and I’ve included the latest Pro Bowl rosters including the original starters and the replacements for the Super Bowl/injured players.
Make sure to check tomorrow’s blog with some recruiting information and then don’t forget this Wednesday I will release my projection of what the Preseason AP Top 10 will be for 2010! Read more…
AFC Championship • 3:00 ET • CBS
NY Jets vs Indianapolis
The AFC comes full circle here. Having already dispatched Cincinnati in the Wildcard Round the Jets have the opportunity to take out the other team that essentially gifted them a playoff spot. Indianapolis had a 15-10 lead after the 1st drive of the 2H in the 1st meeting when they pulled Manning & the rest of the starters. At that point Indy had 16-7 FD & 254-115 yd edges & the Jets TD came when Brad Smith returned the 2H’s opening KO 106 yards for a TD. However the combo of Jones & Greene had 68 yds (4.5) rushing in the 1H. The Jets #1D sacked Indy QB Painter on his 2nd series forcing a fumble which they returned to take the lead & the run defense took over. Last week was a story of 2 halves for the Jets as while they were outgained 212-99 in the 1H they allowed just 1 TD as San Diego missed 2 FG’s. In the 2H the Jets had a 163-132 yd edge & held San Diego to just 9 yds on their 1st 4 drives of the 2H. Indianapolis quieted doubters about how ready they would be after shutting it down for the final 2 games. The Colts #18 defense used their impressive team speed to hold Rice to just 67 yds (5.2). Manning is 4-1 vs a Rex Ryan defense avg 227 ypg (62%) with a 9-2 ratio.
