There are just two days left of 2016 and this promises to be a great weekend for football. Whether you are a college or NFL fan this is the weekend you have been waiting for.
In college bowl season has already begun, but Saturday the college football playoff begins. Alabama will play Washington and Ohio State and Clemson battle for the right to the national championship game in Glendale Arizona. Both games should be competitive despite what the critics say about Washington.
In the other game Ohio State plays Clemson and that should be the game of the weekend in college football. Ohio State and Alabama will then play for the national championship of college football.
In the NFL it is week 17 and for some teams like the Dallas Cowboys nothing matters because they are already in the playoffs and clinched the overall number one seed. Teams such as the Cardinals are not going to make the playoffs so they are playing for pride Sunday.
But for a few other teams everything is on the line Sunday. The Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions battle to call themselves NFC North champions and earn a playoff berth. The Washington Redskins play the New York Giants, they win and they are in and the loser of Detroit Green Bay is out.
Both games should be good games New York doesn't really have much to play for, other than keeping their division rival out of the playoffs. It will be close but I see Washington pulling off narrow Victory and becoming the sixth seed in the NFC Playoff Picture.
And the other Marquee game in the NFL Detroit and Green Bay will be a battle to the end. This in my opinion will be the best NFL game of the weekend. Detroit has had a great season but I see it ending with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers remaining hot and going into the playoffs on a roll as NFC North champions.
Whether you decide to watch just college or just NFL or all of the games sit back and enjoy and have a Happy New Year
