Here we go -- title time! We've got AFC Champion Why Not Zoidberg? taking on NFC Champion Rabid Ferrets in the contect to decide who comes away with the title, the glory, and a fat stack of cash. Let's take a look at how these two stack up:
Head to head, there's very little to go on here. In their seven years in the league together, they've met exactly once -- a 12-11 Why Not Zoidberg? win back in Week 14 of the 2011 season. And they've both definitely had their share of playoff success -- Why Not Zoidberg? going 5-3 in postseason play, while Rabid Ferrets has set the record for playoff appearances, going 15-6 overall.
In a manner of speaking, this is going to be a contest to see who can be the least-successful Super Bowl player ever. If Why Not Zoidberg? wins, then Rabid Ferrets will be 1-and-3 in Super Bowls; while if Rabid Ferrets comes out on top, then Why Not Zoidberg? will be 0-2 in this spot. Of course, even a loss here means you've won a nice amount of cash, so whoever comes up short has that to fall back on.
So now it's time to see who comes out on top here. Since we're getting this posted much later than usual, the picks are already in, and we have a simple dividing line: Why Not Zoidberg? will be champ if Atlanta comes out on top, while Rabid Ferrets will pick up a second title if New England picks up their fifth.
So that should do it for this preview -- check back after the game to see how this season wraps up!
It was an 11-year drought between titles, but Rabid Ferrets joins a very exclusive club. Last year, Fighting Sporks became the first player to become a two-time champion -- now Rabid Ferrets makes it two years in a row that a player picks up their second title.
All right, another successful season in the books! And since (as has become a rather unfortunate trend) we're not getting around to writing this final update until six months after the game, players can look for their 2017 invite any day now. Thanks for another great season, everyone!
