Superbowl XLIX Projection, Divisional Sunday

Seattle over New England

Indianapolis pulled off the upset in Denver, Dallas failed to do so in Green Bay, and the conference championships are set. Yesterday there were 5 teams still alive at 12-4, and 1 at 11-5, which is another reason I was rooting for Denver; symmetry is pleasing to me. The remaining teams are far enough apart in calculated strength that the ordering should remain the same even in the event of a blowout next week, so Seattle would be favored over New England and Indianapolis, while Green Bay would only be favored against Indianapolis. That leaves the remaining matchup - the only potential Superbowl rematch - with New England favored over Green Bay. I'll be rooting for both road teams next Sunday, which, to me, might be the best Sunday of professional football all year. There's nearly 7 hours of football, and twice the teams to root for. Maybe I'll try to get Conference Championship parties started to rival the tradition of Superbowl parties.
