Re: Now... for whom to root?
I will probably root for the underdog teams - Washington, Seattle, Minnesota, Cincinnati. Yes, Cincinnati. They are a young team with a lot of upside, and despite that they are a rival, I would like them to succeed so it makes the Steelers/Bengals games more exciting and competitive. I know Pittsburgh has dominated the series as of late, but for a REAL rivalry both teams need to beat each other, much like how the teams split this season.
Peterson is a great story and I wish he would have gotten the rushing record. The man deserves it. People aren't really giving the Vikings a chance. I think if Ponder can make some throws they'll be in good shape.
RG3 is an amazing guy to watch. Plus, the Redskins haven't done much since before 2000. I'd like to see them make a run with all their young stars and patch work defense.
