Jon Gruden: ‘Iceman’ Eli Manning is last QB teams want to face in playoffs

The Giants’ offense has been struggling most of the season. But Iceman Eli Manning is the last QB that the Packers and other NFL playoff teams want to face in the playoffs, warns Jon Gruden of ESPN.

Eli Manning is the one man I just don’t want to see in the Cheap Elite Nike NFL Jerseys playoffs. He is a flatliner. He has no conscience this time of the year. It’s important (the Packers) have some success early in this game, try to take the crowd out of it, Gruden said during his weekly hit on ESPN2’s Mike and Mike in the Morning with Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic.

Woodson believes the Raiders aren’t far from getting there thanks to an offense that was ‘lights out.’ The production of that unit dimmed when quarterback Derek Carr suffered a season-ending leg injury in Week 16 against Indianapolis.

‘Derek has got to be in that lineup obviously because they were not the same team when he left,’ Woodson said. ‘Keep your guys healthy, eliminate those big plays and then your big-time free agents that come in have to do what they’re expected to do.’

The NFL playoff picture is clear in the AFC as far as which teams make up the six contenders. But only the Steelers and Texans are locked into their seeds No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.

Just ask New England how valuable the No. 1 overall seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs can be the Patriots lost in Denver in last year’s AFC title game.

That’s why the Patriots have plenty for which to play against the Dolphins, who Cheap Fishing Jerseys wouldn’t mind jumping up to the No. 5 seed in order to face the Texans, rather than the Steelers.

Here are the AFC playoff seeding scenarios in Week 17 for the four teams who don’t have their seeding locked.
