Two men enter, then 90 other men follow them. But the most important storyline for this game does not concern who is on the field, but who is not.

In Seattle Saturday afternoon, everything is coming up Seahawks except recent playoff history. For Carolina's rematch with San Francisco, the difference may be the players who didn't get on the field nine weeks ago.

The Colts and Patriots meet for the 11th season in a row, but is New England still too balanced and well-coached for an Indianapolis upset? On Sunday, another rested Peyton Manning team will take on a hot sixth seed. This AFC slate sounds too familiar.

Washington and Atlanta battle to see who can stay in the hunt for No. 1, a litany of Josh McCown discussion leads to us declaring that Selvin Young could run for 100 against the Bears, and we reveal that Romo is being used in the royal Romo.

Is a high-variance quarterback inherently worth more to a team that's a fringe contender? What in the heck has gotten into Jerricho Cotchery? Why is Jared Cook so confusing?
