The NFL Playoffs will get underway this weekend with the Wild Card Round on Saturday, January 4th and Sunday, January 5th. There are 15 former Bulldogs playing in the NFL in 2013 and over half are on rosters for teams that made the playoffs. Last year Pernell McPhee won the Superbowl with the Baltimore Ravens. Will another former MSU great hoist the Lombardi Trophy in New York?
