Richard Sherman isn't universally loved, especially after his now-infamous postgame tirade against Michael Crabtree and the San Francisco 49ers. But that doesn't mean he's without his fans; quite the opposite, in fact, as the Seattle Seahawks cornerback ranked 10th on the NFL's list of most-bought jerseys. Two of Sherman's teammates, Russell Wilson (second) and Marshawn Lynch (sixth) also made the list. No. 1? Their opponent's quarterback in Super Bowl XLVIII, Peyton Manning.

Saints, Niners prevail in NFC

The wild-card round of the 2013-14 NFL playoffs nearly belonged to all the road teams. In the AFC, the Chargers beat the host Bengals, while a furious rally was all that saved the home-standing Colts versus the Chiefs. In the NFC, there were no exceptions. Thanks to last-second field goals in both games, the Saints on Saturday tipped the Eagles, and the 49ers on Sunday braved bitter-cold conditions to take out the Packers. Does either NFC team have another road win in it?

We enter the final weekend of the NFL season in the same place we were after Week 1 -- with Peyton Manning atop Dan Graizano's weekly MVP watch list. Throwing for an NFL-record 51 touchdown passes tends to have that effect on voters. Does Manning have it all but wrapped up, or could a late season push by another worthy candidate have an impact on the award's outcome? Submit your rankings!

Peyton Manning is still on top in Dan Graziano's weekly MVP watch list despite a loss to the Chargers on Thursday night (that just happened to place Philip Rivers on the list as well). Manning is still on pace to break Tom Brady's record of 50 touchdowns in a single season, but is he still worthy of the top spot? Submit your rankings!
