The NFC may not always have the best teams in the NFL, but they certainly have most of the larger markets, which means that the NFC playoffs are among the most watched post season sporting events each year. This year will be no different.

The Wilcard round of the NFC playoffs pitted four large market teams against each other for the right to take on the New York Giants and the Carolina Panthers in the Divisional round.

The first matchup saw the turn-around Atlanta Falcons attempt to unseat the NFC West winning Arizona Cardinals. The story of the game was the two MVP candidates, 23 year old Rookie Matt Ryan and 37 year old veteran Kurt Warner who have each lead their teams to improbable seasons. Arizona won the matchup in a close 30-24 ballgame.

The other NFC contest saw the NFC North winners, Minnesota Vikings play host to the tough and talented Philadelphia Eagles. Despite home field advantage, the Vikings couldn’t hold off the Eagles as Donovan and Co got it done.

Next up: Philadelphia at New York and Arizona at Carolina. Stay Tuned!

First of all, I don’t profess to be an expert by any stretch. I’m not even a huge fan – by some people’s standards – of the NFL. But, I thought it would be fun to lay out my play off predictions for the opening round of the playoffs.

So, here I go.

In the AFC:

I think that all the hubbub about San Diego is going to be motivation enough for them to win at home against the Colts. In all honesty, I think that Indy is the better team, but the trip to the west coast won’t treat them well, as the Chargers have something to prove.

San Diego 24 Indianapolis 21

The Baltimore Ravens will have revenge on their minds when they face the Miami Dolphins. It was only a year ago that the lackluster Dolphins had their only win of the season in week 16 against the Ravens. Miami has had a great year, but the Ravens will win.

Baltimore 28 Miami 17

In the NFC:

In a matchup of two polar opposite MVP candidate QBs, the veteran will win. Much like the Dolphins, the Falcons have had a great year but it just won’t be enough.

Arizona 35 Atlanta 21

Philadelphia may be the best team in the NFL at this moment. Minnesota will give them fits in the cold, cold weather in Minneapolis, but in the end the shear talent of the Philadelphia Eagles will prevail, as Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook break them down….eventually.

Philadelphia 31 Minnesota 28

That’s it. Right or wrong – who cares. It’s fun to make picks!

So, Christmas is here – and if you’re still looking for a great gift for your favorite football fan, why not send him to the warmth of Hawaii for the pro bowl in February.

With so much great talent on display in addition to finding a warm refuge from the cold winter weather it could be the perfect for gift for anyone who enjoys football. The best part is, Pro Bowl tickets are probably not as expensive as you might think.

Every year the Pro Bowl takes a back seat to the Major League and NBA all star games, but it doesn’t have to. With the absolute best of the best on display in Hawaii, there should be a much broader appeal for the week’s worth of fan festivities that lead up to the Pro Bowl.

Grab some tickets for your fan and have a Merry Christmas!

Dec 24

Are you still looking for the perfect gift for that NFL fan in your life? Well now you can stop because it doesn’t get any better than this: Super Bowl tickets! Imagine the look on his face when he realizes he’s going to spend a February weekend in Tampa Bay and watch Super Bowl 43 live and in person!

There are certain “once-in-a-lifetime” experiences that simply cannot be passed up on, and having the chance to see the most watch sporting event in the world is one of them.

Regardless of fandom, we know there are going to be two great teams and plenty of great talent on display in Tampa at Super Bowl 43, and your loved one deserves to be there! Doesn’t he?

Ticket prices are probably more reasonable than you think, so give them a look and make this a Christmas to remember.

With the playoffs set, we know who will be representing the AFC in the hunt for the 2009 Super Bowl. Perhaps the biggest surprise was the AFC East where somehow not only did New England mange to miss an opportunity to defend its AFC crown, but amazingly, the Miami Dolphins have turned a complete 180 by winning the division only one year after an abysmal 1-16 campaign in 2007.

The first round will consist of several intriguing matchups including the worst playoff team, San Diego (at 8-8) actually getting to host former Super Bowl champions in the Colts. Also, Baltimore will get a chance to avenge itself as the only team to lose to Miami last year, when they travel to Miami to face the Dolphins.

Meanwhile, Tennessee and Pittsburgh wait in the wings to face the winners in week two.

The playoffs are bound to be an exciting prelude to what will surely be a great Super Bowl, so grab your tickets today!

Dec 22

Week 17 is in the books and we now know who the 12 teams are who will be representing the NFL in the 2009 playoffs. The bracket is as follows:

For the NFC

  1. New York Giants
  2. Carolina Panthers
  3. Minnesota Vikings
  4. Arizona Cardinals
  5. Atlanta Falcons
  6. Philadelphia Eagles

and for the AFC

  1. Tennesse Titans
  2. Pittsburgh Steelers
  3. Miami Dolphins
  4. Baltimore Ravens
  5. San Diego Chargers
  6. Indianapolis Colts

The Giants and Titans have home field advantage throughout the playoffs, while the Steelers and Panthers join them with home field advantage in round 2. In addition to the defending champion Giants being in the playoffs again, perhaps the most interesting omissions are those of Dallas and New England – perennial contenders who fell short this season.

The playoffs are bound to be great, so grab your tickets – including tickets to the Super Bowl.

After a great NFL season, it only makes sense that the playoffs would be equally exciting – and while no games have yet been played, the 2008 NFC playoffs are shaping up to be something special. The defending Superbowl champs, the upstart Philadelphia Eagles and the absence of the Dallas Cowboys are perhaps the highlights of the NFC bracket.

Additionally, the Arizona Cardinals, Carolina Panthers, Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons are all in – and looking to replace the Giants as kings of the NFC.

The action starts this weekend with the NFC Wild Card playoffs which will pit the Atlanta Falcons against the Arizona Cardinals while the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Vikings of Minnesota. Meanwhile, the Giants and Panthers are waiting in the wings in the Divisional round next week.

There’s nothing like the NFL playoffs, so go grab some tickets for the round of your choice – and don’t forget to pick up your Super Bowl tickets.

It may not have been a crowd pleaser, but the Washington Redskins got the job done on Sunday with a 10-3 win over Philadelphia in Washington, DC. The win puts the Redskins a half game behind the Eagles in the NFC East. Neither team has a great chance at making the playoffs as neither of them control their own destiny at this point.

In a game that was dominated by defense, the lone spotlight shown on Clinton Portis, whose one yard plunge in the third quarter was the difference in the game. Portis finished with 70 yards and a touchdown, which although not great, made him the clear difference maker in the contest.

Both of these teams are still clinging to playoff hopes, and wins in week 17 and a little luck could make the difference. Grab some Philadelphia Eagles tickets, or Washington Redskins tickets and watch them fight in week 17.

The teams were announced today for the 2009 Pro Bowl to be held this February in Hawaii. The starters for the NFC are as follows:
Quarterbacks: Starter – Kirk Warner (Arizona) Backups – Drew Brees (New Orleans), Eli Manning (NY Giants).
Running Backs: Starter – Adrian Peterson (Minnesota) Backups – Michael Turner (Atlanta), and Clinton Portis (Washington).
Fullback: Mike Sellers (Washington).
Wide Receivers: Starters – Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona), Anquan Boldin (Arizona) Backups: Steve Smith (Carolina), and Roddy White (Atlanta).
Tight Ends: Starter – Jason Whitten (Dallas) Backup – Chris Cooley (Washington).
Offensive Linemen: Starters – Jordan Gross (Carolina), Walter Jones (Seattle), Steve Hutchinson (Minnesota) Chris Snee (New York Giants), Andre Gurode (Dallas) Backups – Chris Samuels (Washington), Leonard Davis (Dallas), Shaun O’Hara (New York Giants).

This looks like a strong offense. I thought it was interesting to note the dominance of Arizona in the passing game, as well as the numerous Washington Redskins players (considering their struggles this year).

The Defense also looks solid for the NFC. Here is the defensive roster:

Defensive Ends: Starters – Julius Peppers (Carolina), Justin Tuck (New York Giants) Backups – Jared Allen (Minnesota).
Defensive Tackles: Starters – Kevin Williams (Minnesota), Jay Ratcliff (Dallas) Backup – Pat Williams (Minnesota).
Linebackers: DeMarcus Ware (Dallas) Lance Briggs (Chicago) Patrick Willis (San Francisco) Backups – Derrick Brooks (Tampa), Jon Beason (Carolina).
Cornerbacks: Starters – Charles Woodson (Green Bay) Antoine Winfield (Minnesota) Backup – Asante Samuel (Philadelphia).
Safeties: Starters – Nick Collins (Green Bay), Adrian Wilson (Arizona) Backup – Brian Dawkins (Philadelphia).

As always, the Pro Bowl promises to be a great matchup and who wouldn’t want to escape to Hawaii during February? Grab some Pro Bowl tickets today and see the best at their best!

SelectATicket.com wants you to know that Spiderman the Musical is coming to Broadway in 2009 and you can sign up to be alerted when Spiderman the Musical tickets are available by visiting Select A Ticket’s Spiderman Broadway tickets page.

With words and music by Bono & The Edge of U2, Spiderman is going to be an interesting Broadway musical. I for one am curious just how they’re going to set the story to music. I assume it will be the story of how Spiderman came to be when Peter Parker was bitten by a radio-active spider. No word on if the classic Spiderman Theme Song from the old cartoon will be used but personally I think it deserves a spot in the Broadway show! That song is a classic among casual and die-hard Spiderman fans!

Following the success of Disney shows which have come to Broadway, Spiderman the Musical is trying to appeal to families with younger children while also offering something for adults who might be interested in seeing a different take on something they’ll remember from their own childhood.

If you are interested in seeing Spiderman on Broadway, head on over to SelectATicket.com where you can purchase Broadway tickets online and while you are there, sign up for our Spiderman Broadway Tickets Alert.
