The Eagles and Jets were never really close. Brutal…

If you’re nevertheless having trouble summoning sufficient excitement for either match up, consider that the Baltimore Ravens’ quarterback, Joe Flacco, is a South Jersey native. Casual football watchers may not be aware but it’s true. He grew up in the tiny municipality of Audubon, New Jersey (Camden County), and his family still lives in the same area.

So if you’re looking for something to be excited about today, consider tuning to CBS at 6:30 p.m. and cheering on a Jersey boy as he fights for his first Super Bowl berth. Why not?
