Right now there are two situations that could set up as do-or-die games for the final Sunday of the season: Houston at Tennessee for the AFC South title, and Green Bay at Detroit for the NFC North title.

Before the Seahawks played the Patriots in November, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell admitted that the scar from the Super Bowl loss would never go away. Wilson downplayed it a bit, saying that game was just a page in his story.
