The article focuses on various aspects related to football playoffs. For whatever reason, the football team New York Giants' defense doesn't get much respect. Maybe it's the defense's recent spate of injuries. And maybe it's because the league says the defense isn't very good. The Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers also are intriguing. Both teams are among the league's best on defense in both ranking systems, but their offenses don't get nearly enough love from the league. Both teams are capable of pulling off upsets.
