Neither of those teams would have home field next week, unless Denver/Atlanta lose as well.

Ice Bowls are fun for us, not so much for the players. The kickers have it especially rough.

The kickers have it easy. Ever play football in 20 degree weather? Hitting the ground feels like hitting a brick wall.

Coughlin looked like he was going to turn into an ice fossil in Green Bay during that first SB run.

So many tickets still on secondary market for Seahawks at Falcons on SUNDAY. Get in price should be around $25 by kickoff.

Wut? The things I'd do to go to a NFL playoff game for $25...

Kicking a rock isn't exactly fun either

That must be an outdated tweet, or the guy's not looking at StubHub. There's a few $45-50 pairs, then it goes up to $65

http://www.stubhub.com/atlanta-falco...-2013-4171941/

Even 'those' are good prices for a playoff game though.

Haha don't kickers use separate ball to kick that is partially deflated? It can't be that bad.

I think they actually make kickers use a harder ball, if anything? The NFL hated FG's getting up to 80-85% every year, I know that's why they changed the ball so it's gotta be tougher to kick with it.

But yeah I'd take a kicker's job over anyone else's in the cold, even though it's tougher in a way cause the kicker doesn't really run around and get the adrenaline going like the other players do.

They just wear 15 insulated jackets and stand next to the heater all game.

He said by Sunday. Ticket prices go down during the week as the seller has less time and is pressured to sell at a buyer's price

Just to compare, Denver's cheapest pair available are $80 each before fees on SH, Green Bay's $123 and New England's $124. To be fair, Atlanta's cheapest pair available is $71 currently, like the first twenty listings are single tickets, I missed that before when I said they were pairs. So I don't think pairs will plummet too much, but yeah a single ticket you could wind up getting for $25.

Mid 50s. But next week we're getting a 1,2 punch of arctic air. Starting about wakeup time Tuesday morning, until at least the following Tuesday, it wont get much above freezing any day for a high. Pretty much a solid week below, at, or just above freezing. Pond hockey will probably be a go in 8 or 9 days.

I think ATL could lose. Denver I think will win.

I think what he meant is that it's difficult kicking footballs when it's cold due to the compression of air in the ball, as well as the fact that objects do not travel as well in cold air.

Partially this, but also what Pat said. Lawrence Tynes had a black and blue foot and could barely walk after the ice bowl in Green Bay in 2007. It only finished healing just before the Super Bowl.

Oh I know what he meant, but I'd rather kick a football than get thrown to the ground in the cold.

This game is the appetizer before the main meal. Time for Gore and Crabtree to take it to the cheeseheads
