Apologies for not including the last round (Wild Card Weekend) but I figured with 8 teams out of 32 remaining for the Championship I should update those that may be interested. After a grueling season, 7 of the top 8 records remain in contention with only 3 weeks of football left. This is the current playoff picture.
Within the NFL there are white-collar teams and blue-collar teams. Granted, there is a salary cap, so all teams are created equal but what defines each teams and who their fans are still follow those white/blue collar lines. This map represents their location in the US as well as blue=blue collar, red = white collar, and purple= both.
My team, as you all should know, is the Green Bay Packers because they are from my home state; so I have a clear bias. You can and should root for any team you want because deep down I look forward to great football second only to my team winning a championship.
