I even got to witness the final plays of Steelers-Patriots, which is a rarity for big events now.
The NFL is clearly a quarterback-driven league, and they are its biggest stars. This is going to be a Super Bowl for the ages. That is exactly what they did Sunday night in defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers to secure the AFC title. It is also the first 100-yard receiving game of Hogan's career. But Elway took the Broncos back three times in four years starting in 1987 and finally helped Denver win back-to-back titles in 1998 and 1999.
Ryan, who is widely expected to be named the player of the season, put Aaron Rodgers in the shade as the Falcons overwhelmed the Green Bay Packers 44-21 in the NFC Championship game. In the offseason, some Las Vegas sportsbooks changed their Super Bowl odds for the Falcons quite significantly from 40-1 to 100-1 in an effort to generate more bets. Well, just like with the rest of the NFL, Brady and company have had their way with Atlanta, however, when they meet on February 5 in Houston, it will be for something most fans will remember a lot more than a regular season game - it's for a World Championship.

But the long-term warming trend should continue to go up and, Arndt says, threatens new records nearly every year. He says 2016 was about 1.7 degrees Fahrenheit above the global average for the 20th century.

In wild-card weekend the four games had an average margin of victory of 19 points, the most since the National Football League adopted the current playoff format in 1990. Meanwhile, the Steelers have won the turnover battle in both playoff games this postseason, and Ryan Shazier has registered an interception in his last four games.
Hogan suffered a thigh injury in that game that limited him in practice and made him questionable against the Steelers.
Texas jobs rose in December
According to numbers from the governor's office, the Jacksonville area added 22,800 new private-sector jobs in 2016. The unadjusted US rate was 4.5%, up slightly from a revised 4.4% in November, but down from 4.8% a year earlier.
By the end, the crowd was chanting "Where is Roger?" and celebrating yet another Super Bowl trip for the Patriots. It's the sixth time since the merger that the No. 1 scoring offense will face the No. 1 scoring defense in the Super Bowl.
He has spoken often about his respect for the Patriots and Tom Brady, which included him requesting a jersey from Brady prior to Pittsburgh's loss to New England back in October. Still, the Steelers didn't complete a play for over 20 yards until there was a little more than a minute remaining in the third quarter, and the sequence where the Patriots stopped Williams twice at the goal line was an impressive feat in itself.
