After a cold and heartbreaking NFL wildcard weekend for some, the divisional playoff race is set in the NFC division. Securing the number one seed with an incredible 15-1 regular season, the Carolina Panthers will host the Seattle Seahawks at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday January 17th. Both teams enter this contest with something to prove and it is shaping up to be an excellent pairing. The quarterbacks for each of these teams, Russell Wilson and Cam Newton, have both been in the MVP conversation for 2015 due to their stellar play throughout the course of the season. Defensively, both Carolina and Seattle are at the top of their game and should go to battle, pleasing the throngs of NFC playoff ticket holders wanting a great live game. The other NFC matchup will be in sunny Glendale, AZ, the home of the number two seeded Cardinals who ended the season 13-3. They will play host to the Green Bay Packers who had their share of struggles throughout the regular season but came through in the clutch in their wildcard game versus Washington on Sunday. That matchup will be held on Saturday, January 16 at University of Phoenix Stadium. Expect a showdown of two veteran quarterbacks laying it all out there to advance in the postseason. Arizona’s defense has been dominant, yet Green Bay caught fire in their first playoff game and as we all know, anything can happen.
All the divisional action starts on Saturday so be sure to purchase your NFC playoff tickets and not miss out on one throw, pick, sack or incredible catch!
