PFW Online: Vol. 26, Issue 24

Published: 2012-01-02
Cover Date: January 8, 2012
This is the issue for wild-card previews and Week 17 game coverage.


Check out our in-depth guide to the 12 playoff teams that are vying for this season's Lombardi Trophy. For each team, we give you the keys to success on offense and defense, a player to watch and what must happen for the team to win Super Bowl XLVI.


We analyze the job that each of the 35 NFL coaches did during the 2011 season, then rank them by grade from best to worst.


Ten years ago, the fates of the Patriots and Raiders were altered because of an obscure rule that overturned a Tom Brady fumble and allowed New England a chance to rally for a miraculous victory.
