In a truly stunning day of playoff football, the San Diego Chargers upset the heavily favored Indianapolis Colts 28-24 (congratulations Peggy and Ken!), and the Giants beat the Dallas Cowboys, 21-17, and both teams moved into the finals in their respective conferences.
Let's be honest here. If you were told before this day that one Manning brother was playing next week, while the other was going home absolutely and 100% for sure, which one would you have picked? Eli Manning took another step towards stardom, while Peyton Manning hits the links. (And I can just hear the Pats fans cackling over that.)
And now I wonder how many Dallas fans are going to blame a certain blonde bombshell for this loss? (And I don't mean Britney Spears.) You may have witnessed today the birth of "The Curse of Jessica Simpson." (Because naturally, every loss of this magnitude these days has to have some stupid, asinine "curse" applied to it.)
I was visiting some friends in New Jersey today, so I got to see only parts of both games. But it may have been one of the biggest twin upsets in NFL history today.
Congrats to the Giants, as they move onto Green Bay, and the Chargers, as they go into the Lion's Den known as Gillette Stadium to face the Patriots next week.
