The Packers were supposed to be the hot turnaround team of 2009. The Bengals were supposed to be, well, the Bengals. Too bad nobody told Antwan Odom or the surprisingly effective Bengals offensive line. (And yes, like any of our ESPN material that doesn't say otherwise, this is now Insider only.)
Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
