Dance on a frozen tundra. Dress in your best Lombardi. Stick an absurd piece of yellow foam on your head and shout into a chilled sky. Cheesy Hallelujah, the Green Bay Packers are going to the Super Bowl. The NFL's throwback franchise will be crashing the league's futuristic championship, the Packers defeating their longtime rivals Chicago Bears, 21-14, Sunday to earn a chance to reclaim the trophy named after Green Bay's most famous coach. The league's smallest city is going to its biggest game, playing the Pittsburgh Steelers in Dallas on Feb. 6 for the right to hoist the Lombardi Trophy and earn the most outrageous of bragging rights.

So another NFL quarterback threw for 400 yards? What else is new? Heading into Monday night's Pittsburgh-Cincinnati game, there have been six 400-yard-passing performances this season, the most of any two-week span in NFL history. And Sunday, three quarterbacks threw for at least 400 yards without an interception -- Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, Philadelphia's Michael Vick and San Diego's Philip Rivers -- the most such performances in league history. There have been five 400-yard, zero-interception performances in the first two weeks this season, and that's only one off the record for a season.

The Dallas Cowboys might call themselves "America's Team," but the Green Bay Packers are the NFL franchise deserving of that title. So says Public Policy Polling, which recently determined that twice as many fans in the nation chose the Packers as their favorite team, from a list of nine. The group surveyed 700 American voters from Dec. 16-18, and 22% of those polled said the Packers are their favorite team; followed by 11% for the Cowboys; 8% each for the Chicago Bears, New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers; 7% for the New Orleans Saints; 6% for the New England Patriots; 4% for the Washington Redskins; and 2% for the New York Jets.

It might not seem fair. For 3 1/2 quarters, California quarterback Aaron Rodgers was perfect. Perfect as in 23 for 23. Perfect as in tying an NCAA record for consecutive pass completions in a game. But what people might remember most about his performance are the last four times he dropped back to pass, his team within spitting distance of a winning touchdown. Three incompletions and a sack. "I'm frustrated," Rodgers said. "I couldn't get the job done."

With the playoff picture still fluid heading into the final Sunday of the NFL season, there are no sure-thing matchups in the first round. All we really know is that Kansas City will be the AFC's No. 5 seed no matter what. If the 15 favored teams were to win Sunday, and if San Francisco were to beat Arizona in the weekend's only pick-'em game, the opening round of the playoffs would look like this: Miami at Cincinnati - This would be a rematch of a Halloween game which the Dolphins won at home, 22-20.

Robert Griffin III made an NFL debut Sunday that may have only been surpassed in league history by Cam Newton last season. But Griffin, the Washington Redskins quarterback, accomplished one thing that even Newton wasn't able to do in his first game as a pro -- earn the title of offensive player of the week. The NFL announced Wednesday that Griffin received that honor in the NFC, marking the first time in either conference that a rookie has been the recipient of the award since its inception in 1984.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had words for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on the field during the game Sunday, on the sidelines immediately following the game and on Twitter hours after the game. Sherman intercepted a Brady pass attempt in the third quarter after he had told Brady all game that he would do so. "I kept saying I'm going to get that next time. Every TV timeout, I went up and said it right to [Brady]: 'Please keep trying me. I'm going to take it from you.' That was when they were winning," Sherman said, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.
