PFW Online: Vol. 26, Issue 27

Published: 2012-01-23
Cover Date: February 5, 2012
This is the issue for the Super Bowl XLVI preview and conference championship game coverage.


The Patriots and Giants know each other well, having faced each other earlier in the season and, more famously, in Super Bowl XLII. Find out how these teams match up against each other and what are the keys to victory for both squads.


We talked to our numerous sources around the league to help us put together our exclusive annual ranking of the top 50 players of the 2011 season.


PFW selects the six new teams we believe will make the playoffs in 2012 and tell you why these teams can make the jump into the postseason after missing the playoffs in '11.


PFW draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki projects the first round of the 2012 NFL draft and tells you which college stars are going to come off the board early and why they would be a fit for that particular team.
