NFL Sunday Night Football: Jets v. Bengals

Last game of the season and last game ever at Giants stadium. If the Jets win they are in the playoffs, if they lose the, um, Houston Texans get in.

As for the whole controversy over whether too many teams were not playing their starters after clinching playoff spots...yeah, that discussion is kind of over.

The scene in Houston didn't leave much hope. Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker sat in the back of a cart, a towel draped over his head, hiding the pain and frustration on his face. Clearly, Welker was hurting from the injury sustained to his left knee as he planted and cut in open space on the Patriots' third offensive play against the Texans.

He knew it was bad. And it is.

According to multiple sources, Welker has both a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee, meaning he'll miss the entire postseason.

I know Herm Edwards famously said, "you play to win the game" but that's not entirely true. You play to win the championship. The chances of the Patriots doing that plummeted today.

You can't protect everyone but protecting as many key players as possible.

BTW-How weird is it that the two first round of the NFC playoff games are rematches of Week 17 games (Green Bay at Arizona and Eagles at Cowboys)?

More Weird [ace]: And as everyone now knows, some bonus weirdness, as the Bengals and Jets will rematch next week.
