Cam Newton and his teammates were having a little fun at the NFC’s Thursday practice, first sending out the rookie QB to return an Andy Lee punt, then lining the Panthers wide to catch a deep pass from Aaron Rodgers.

We are now 13 days from the Super Bowl. Or in other words, the 13 longest days of the year!
When the Giants and 49ers earned their way into the NFC Championship Game, they had won their games on the scoreboard – and one particular area of the field.

Four divisional playoff games this weekend to break down. Let’s get right to it.

James Starks’ status for this weekend’s game against the Giants is still up in the air. But that’s probably a good thing for Playoff Challenge owners, since the matchup isn’t an advantageous one.
Nestled inside Sunday’s frantic Packers win over the Lions was this minor gem: A 15-year-old Packers fan bopping around Lambeau Field during a timeout, running free and flapping his wings before he was taken down by Packers LB Brad Jones.

Ben Roethlisberger is doing everything he can to get back on the field for Sunday’s regular season finale, but fantasy owners might want to think twice before plugging him into their lineups.
As James Starks struggles to recover from an ankle injury, Ryan Grant has a chance to help fantasy owners in a big way against Kansas City.
Congratulations to the Texans, who have clinched the first playoff berth in franchise history. With three weeks left in the season, there are still eight playoff spots up for grabs. And three teams – the Patriots, Ravens and Steelers – all have a chance to officially join the party this weekend.
Losing Greg Jennings to a knee injury certainly will impact fantasy owners currently in the playoffs, but there is plenty of value to be found in the rest of Green Bay’s deep receiving corps.
With four weeks left in the season, there are still six division crowns and 10 total playoff spots up for grabs. Congratulations to the Packers and 49ers, who have clinched the NFC North and West, respectively. Meanwhile, here’s a look at what can happen this week.

As fantasy leagues head into the playoffs, Jason Smith looks at garbage points — those points that come late in lopsided games — and how useful they can be in the pursuit of a fantasy championship.
This time last week, there was plenty of buzz that the 49ers had a chance to be the first team in the NFL this season to clinch a playoff spot. A loss to the Ravens on Thanksgiving night delayed that inevitability, and it also opens the door for the defending Super Bowl champs to become the first team this season with an asterisk next to their names in the standings.
