Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl boundThe Green Bay Packers went into Soldier Field to play the Chicago Bears and came out the victors in one of sports' greatest rivalries. It was the 182nd meeting between the two NFC North teams and it was a match-up as good as it was going to get - a game that determined who would go to the Super Bowl. In the end, it was the Packers with a 21-14 win, led by Aaron Rodgers and the much ballyhooed Packers defense led by Clay Matthews and a B.J. Raji interception run back for a touchdown. The Packers will meet the Pittsburgh Steelers for the right to be called Super Bowl champions.

Former Carolina Panthers coach, John Fox, will be joining the Broncos after a lame-duck type of season with the Panthers.

Cam Newton entering the NFL Draft

Cam Newton, quarterback of the Auburn Tigers, has decided to forego his senior season and declare for the 2011 NFL Draft.

Newton is a versatile quarterback that could both throw and run the bell at a high level. However, production in college doesn't always translate to the NFL, but Newton has a good shot because he also has the physical tools to succeed right away.

Nick Folk and the New York Jets celebrateIn what was a grudge match between the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts, the hype before the game was certainly warranted as the contest was decided as the clock wound down. The Jets were able to pull out a win, exacting revenge for last season's AFC Championship loss. With the Jets up 14-13, Peyton Manning was able to lead the Colts down the field to set up an Adam Vinatieri field-goal to take a 16-14 lead with 0:53 seconds left on the clock. It looked all, but over. However, Antonio Cromartie took the ensuing kick-off for 47 yards, giving the Jets excellent field-position. It paid off, along with a Mark Sanchez to Braylon Edwards 18-yard completion to get the ball to the Colts' 14-yard line. Then with clock ticking off the clock, Jets kicker Nick Folk hit the game-winning 32-yard field goal to give the Jets a 17-16 victory. A Rex Ryan-led team finally beat Peyton Manning and the Colts. Hallelujah. The Jets move on to face the New England Patriots.
