With the recent news that Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers will miss 4-6 weeks due to a fractured collarbone he suffered in a 27-20 loss this past Monday night at home against division rival Chicago, the landscape in the NFC, and it's road to Super Bowl XLVIII, has taken a "turn for the west".
All due respect to Dallas, Detroit, New Orleans, and any other potential representative, Rodgers absence will remove any threat of any team outside of the Pacific Northwest to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. The 2014 NFC
Championship Game will be a slug fest between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. It's that
simple. The Saints are a far inferior team outside a Dome, the Lions are too dependent on Calvin Johnson and
are also beneficiaries of a controlled climate, and we have the Cowboys, who have been searching for an identity
for the better part of a decade.
Both the 'Niners and 'Hawks can run and pass the ball with the best of them, and they are signified throughout the league with their physical style of play on defense. San Francisco and Seattle both have huge advantages playing
at home, and that may very well be the deciding factor in whichever team outlasts the other. With two NFL behemoths so evenly matched, it would be a disservice to see anything other on January 19th.
