The New England Patriots can do some self-scouting on Sunday as they wait for the Steelers-Broncos game that happens later. Until then, fans will be treated to what should be the best game of the divisional round.
The Panthers failed to finish the regular season undefeated, while the Seahawks have started to claw their way back into dominance. Both are defensive powerhouses with extremely mobile quarterbacks that know how to extend drives.
Which team would you rather win? Which team would you rather see in the Super Bowl?
