NFL Week 9 Power Poll: An NFC Renaissance?

We’re 8 weeks into the 2010 NFL season and right now the top 5 teams in the league are arguably all from the AFC (Pats, Jets, Steelers, Ravens, Colts).  So what does this mean for the NFC? Are the Giants really the best team in the conference?  Could the Falcons emerge as the top seed?  Are we buying into the magic going on in Tampa?

As we head into the second half of the season, two NFC teams, the Packers and Saints, deserve our careful attention.  GB finished strong last year and will soon get some key players back from injury.  Drew Brees will benefit from the return of a healthy Reggie Bush and down the stretch no defense is going to want to go up against the potent New Orleans offense.

Sunday Night Football Recap: Brett Favre Looks/Is Old

Last night, Brett Favre played like a 41 year old man.  His 3 interecpetions, one returned for a GB touchdown, were the main reason the Vikings lost to the Packers 28-24. In classic Favre fashion, he gave his team a chance to win the game in its final moments, which included an apparent touchdown pass to Percy Harvin that would later be overturned.

So where do the Vikings go from here?  Favre appeared injured, perhaps a relapse of the ankle injury that has plagued him for years, and the Minnesota schedule doesn’t get an easier with an upcoming trip to the 5-1 Patriots on Halloween.  Can they still win the NFC North or will Tarvaris Jackson be their starting QB by seasons end?

For anyone who’s ever been to Lambeau Field, is the entire stadium made up of bleachers or are there individual seats as well?
