Gridiron Heights, Ep. 18: Aaron Rodgers Sinks Giants' Party Boat with Hail Mary

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistJanuary 10, 2017

The New England Patriots watched Wild Card Weekend knowing they would receive a manageable opponent in the divisional round. That did not stop them from meticulously scouting every possible second-round foe.

In the latest episode of Gridiron Heights, Tom Brady and Co. spent the weekend hiding in their Spygate van to stake out their underwhelming AFC adversaries. With the Houston Texans looming, they will switch exclusively to the "Overpaid QB Cam."

At least they won't have to worry about Playoff Eli Manning, who couldn't stop Aaron Rodgers from torpedoing the New York Giants' chances of cruising to another Super Bowl.

The Patriots haven't learned their lesson about subverting the rules, but will Big Blue cause football fans to see the error of overrating small sample sizes?
