On Saturday, January 9, Wild Card weekend will commence, kicking off what's sure to be a frenzied four weeks of NFL playoff action.
The opening round matchups are set, the players are ready and I'm absolutely tingling in anticipation of the first game.
Part of what makes the NFL playoffs so great is how fans kick their enthusiasm and excitement into another gear for the postseason.
A single play could be the difference between going on a Super Bowl run and getting eliminated far earlier than you anticipated; and everybody knows it.
Forty-something-year-old dudes may get more pumped for the playoffs than for their kids' college graduations, but they're not the only ones who are about to catch football fever.
