Yahoo Sports Kings NFL Weekly Countdown Show Week 9



History shows that a losing record at this point in the season does not negate a team’s chances of making the playoffs. Since 2000, 35 teams have reached the halfway point of their season with a .500 or below winning percentage and proceeded to the playoffs, including at least one in each season.

Of those 35 clubs, five have advanced to the Conference Championship Game, including the 2001 New England Patriots, who won Super Bowl XXXVI. 

The GREEN BAY PACKERS and the INDIANAPOLIS COLTS will both face opponents with 6-0 records or better for the second consecutive week. Previously, only the 1934 Detroit Lions and 2004 Pittsburgh Steelers have played teams 6-0 or better in consecutive games.

The Packers, who played the 6-0 Broncos in Week 8, travel to Carolina (7-0), while the Colts, who played the 6-0 Panthers on Monday Night Football last week, host Denver (7-0).

The Yahoo Sports Kings discuss what's likely to happen during Week 9 of the National Football League. MeanGene, Ronnie Brooks and Rod Johnson break down every match-up and give you our best analysis and predictions.
