The games lived up to the hype. Well, actually both games looked as if they were going to be blowouts, but both the Bears and Jets rallied in the second-half, after falling behind early, to make the championship games at least watchable. But in the end, it was the Packers and the Steelers who earned the right to play in the Superbowl in two weeks.

Former UB running back James Starks continues to be the pride of Niagara Falls with his rushing performances for the Packers. His Family watched the game yesterday at the Old Falls Sports Bar and Grill and is making plans to see him play in the Superbowl in Dallas on Feb. 6th.
