Football and Favre/Hockey History

Is it a coincidence that the final four NFL teams include two that NO longer have Brett Favre around? Congratulations to the New York Jets and Green Bay Packers, who won their playoff games this weekend!

The Jets shocked the New England Patriots today, 28-21. Green Bay rocked the Atlanta Falcons last night, 48-21!  Next Sunday, the Packers are in Chicago for the first playoff meeting between the longtime rivals since 1941. I believe Favre was the quarterback then, wasn't he?

The AFC battle next Sunday has the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Jets.
