NFL Playoffs: Time To Terminate The Trash Talk

The NY Jets have been giving their rival, the New England Patriots, a whalloping – at least when it comes to trash talk. This weekend, the two teams will prove who’s better on the football field as they met for Round Two of the playoffs. Also in the AFC, the Baltimore Ravens meet the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

In the NFC, the Green Bay Packers play the Falcons in Atlanta, and the Chicago Bears host the surprising Seattle Seahawks. Judy Battista covers pro football for the New York Times and joins us to preview the games.
