Playoff Preview
> Minnesota at Dallas The Corporation brings his Minnesota Vikings into Dallas, Texas to do battle against The Iguana. Dallas gets the extra AP for homefield advantage, and it looks like he�???�??�?�¢??ll need it. These two squared off the very first week of the season. Minnesota won by a foul in the 11th round, and had a large lead on all cards while both fighters were in similar condition. However, Minnesota (+6 S-A) was the home team in that fight. With the extra AP, Dallas (+11 S-A) has a chance to make it interesting. Minnesota has gone 6-2 against sluggers this season, while Dallas went 4-3 against similar teams. -yg Chicago Bears @ San Francisco 49ers Not even one hour has elapsed, then the tickets for the NFC Playoff match between the 49ers and the Chicago Bears, to take place on May 30, were completely sold out. As the winner of the NFC West division the 49ers are having homefield advantage. The Bears moved into the playoffs by wildcard as No. 3 placed team in the NFC North, the by far strongest division of the regular season. It is the meetings of two similary hard punching sluggers who together have landed 17 KOs out of total 22 wins. One of these KOs was scored by the Bears in week 8 of the season, when the playoff rivals still were fighting for divisional rankings. Not only will the 49ers,leaded by grandmaster nino, try everything to redeem the preliminary round defeat, as the playoff host they seem to be in a position of the slightly favorite. But: They will face a highly motivated Bears team who currently are on a streak of 5 consecutive wins and captained by the defending champion and living legend Slick Willy. Leading a slugger to the playoffs against really strong competitors requires exceptionally skills which both managers have in common. If the teams are able to perform their best game we will see a great fight full of action. Let's look forward to it. Good luck to the teams, good luck to the managers. -Suxel Playoff Match-ups
