    2012 Atlanta Falcons Betting PreviewFor the first time in franchise history the Atlanta Falcons have made the playoffs two seasons in a row.

    2012 Arizona Cardinals Odds and Preview

    2012 Arizona Cardinals Betting PreviewWe kind of figured the Arizona Cardinals would miss Kurt Warner, but now, after two seasons, the situation is getting serious.

    2012 Dallas Cowboys Odds and Preview

    2012 Dallas Cowboys Betting PreviewThe Dallas Cowboys have been one of the most talented teams in the league the last couple of seasons and still have managed to miss the playoff both years.

    2012 Philadelphia Eagles Odds and Preview

    2012 Philadelphia Eagles Betting PreviewThe Coach Reid era in Philadelphia has been marked by disappointment, in that while the Eagles have had good teams for a long time they just haven't been able to get over the hump.
