The potential Ol' School vs. New School (Favre vs. Brady) could be an interesting storyline. I think all can agree that Pack/Pats would be the better matchup. That being said, you definitely root against the Patriots.
Surprisingly well for a team that has been missing it's best all around player most of the year. If they make the playoffs I'll consider this season a huge success. They're currently in a playoff spot, but all of the teams in the east are really crammed together so a losing streak by any of them could take them out, except for maybe Ottawa.
