Top 25 Images From the NFL Divisional Playoffs and the Weekend in Sports
Top 25 Pictures From the Weekend That Was in Sports (January 10-12)
You can argue that Fall is the best sports season, but Winter is not far behind in my book. Sure, most people would prefer to have nothing but football on their TVs, but Winter still provides us with plenty of action from the gridiron.
The college football season is now officially in the rearview mirror following a tremendous BCS title game between Florida State and Auburn. After seven long years, the SEC has finally been dethroned. It certainly didn't look like that was going to be the case in the first half of the game, but FSU came out swinging in the second half to leave no doubt who the best team in 2013 was.
We've also reached the halfway point of the NFL Playoffs, technically. Two round are in the books and we have two left to go. But obviously, eight of the 11 games have already been played. It was clear that the Wild Card round was going to be tough to top and that ended up being the case. The divisional round was very solid and there was some great football played, but the games just didn't match up to the weekend before. That's to be expected, though, with each conference's top teams in action in round two.
As with any weekend in sports, there were many great images captured by our friends at USA Today. In the first installment of 'best pictures' in 2014, we'll take a look at the best shots from the world of sports. Here's a look at some great moments frozen in time from the NFL Playoffs, college basketball and more. Enjoy:
