The single elimination round started with close competition among all the teams. Many games as a matter of fact were decided by 10 points or less. Any minor mistake could cost a team the game, so coaches took extra caution to make sure everyone knew their assignments.
An interesting phenomenon occurred during the elimination round...the lower seeds gave the top seeds fits. Like they say in the NFL, "On any given Sunday". Well that was truly the case today as games went into double even quadruple overtime as teams played their hearts out to move on to the championship round.
After battling for hours, the AFC was finally represented by the Houston Texans and the Miami Dolphins, while the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons filled the spots for the NFC.
Both games were tough with the Falcons beating out the Saints for a spot in the finals and the Dolphins putting on a offensive show to beat the Texans.
