It had been forever and maybe longer since we could smell the sanity in the NFL’s four divisional-round playoff games.

Yep, Tom Brady arm wrestles Peyton Manning once again but believe it or not it has been seven years their last playoff aerial duel.

Titanic matchups to determine which two teams get to freeze their asses off in a North Jersey Super Bowl.
