20 NFL Playoff Matchups Fans Should Want to See

This is the best part of every NFL dreamer's year. Injuries haven't quite decimated any contenders (well, Green Bay might beg to differ), the schedule hasn't ravaged everyone's hopes for a playoff berth and nearly every major storyline is still in play. 

In other words, if there's a playoff matchup you want to see, odds are it's going to be destroyed in the next month. That's just how the NFL works.

I'm still mad we didn't get to see the Colts and Patriots duke it out in the '07 AFC Championship Game, and don't get me started on Arizona robbing us of an unlikely albeit technically possible Favre vs. Rodgers NFC championship game in 2009. 

These aren't the playoff games you're going to see. We're going to see Tom Brady put up 50 on some unsuspecting young quarterback (Vegas may or may not be offering 3:1 odds on that being Andy Dalton) and we're going to see the Giants methodically top a superior team through some combination of veteran savvy and voodoo magic. 

These are the playoff games we want to see. Anything is possible in this realm. Some of these teams won't make the playoffs, others will get knocked out before getting the chance to face each other. Anything can happen. Well, anything except another Tim Tebow overtime bomb, but that one's on Rex, not me.

Here are the 20 games all NFL fans should hope we see in the playoffs.
