Tom Brady had his worst game of the season, but it didn't matter, because of three crucial New England defensive stops. Brett Favre had the Lambeau advantage and everybody's good will, but it didn't matter, because a few late errant throws put the Packers in a deep freeze.

There's a Manning in the NFL's final four, but it isn't the one most people expected.Brett Favre returns to the Championship round for the first time in a decade, continuing his Elway-esque regeneration. Plus: The Seahawks go flat and Patrick Crayton looks bad. Welcome to NFC Divisional Round Audibles.

The Jaguars play close to the Blueprint, and still lose. The Chargers lose their top offensive players to injury, and somehow win. The first part of this week's Audibles tries to make sense of a world where Norv Turner is coaching in a conference championship game.

Jack Del Rio and Mike Tomlin compete for the Keep Choppin' Wood award, while the Titans found out what happens when you ask your defense to win the entire game alone. A stunned populace must now consider the possible reclamation of A Man Called Norv.

FO takes on the Wild Card games, one conference at a time. Were the Giants this good all along, or were the Bucs this bad? Can anybody block the Seattle defensive line? And when will networks finally stop playing grunge music when going to commercial during Seahawks games?

After all the controversy, the backlash against the backlash, the media crush, and a season full of teams who played them increasingly closely, the New England Patriots beat the New York Giants on Saturday night to run their regular-season record to 16-0. Congratulations to the Patriots, and a salute to the Giants, who played a great game in defeat.

"Win and you're in" should be good motivation, but in Week 16 the teams playing out the string rose up and fought back. Also: John DiGiorgio enters the realm of FO favorites, Shaun Alexander experiences the sensation of actual blocking, and Warren Sapp just flat-out loses his mind.

The Spygate revenge game wasn't what we thought it was, Tampa Bay makes history, Atari Bigby gets lucky, the Seahawks mistake a road game for a bye, Bryant Gumbel makes stuff up, and the Atlanta Falcons go Full Kotite. Also, congratulations to the Miami Dolphins for getting off the schneid!
