ACB Sports Presents: NFL Divisional Playoffs, Part 1

Holy moly, last weekend was insane! Sure, we were only 2-2 with our picks, but every matchup was great, every game played out well, and every single minute was exciting. We had one team win by 17, but the other three matchups were all within 3 points (1, 2, and 3 points, actually....). We also saw only one home team win (Indianapolis), and they had to stage the second largest comeback in NFL Playoff history. So...what does this mean? Nothing. It means absolutely nothing.

So here are, in no particular order, our Favorite Movies of 2013.

AMERICAN CRAFT BEER PICKS THE BEST TV SHOWS OF 2013

2013 was a great year for craft beer and an awesome year for American television and particularly cable and satellite networks, which have blown past Hollywood to become the leading producer of innovative comedies and cutting-edge dramas today. Over the last decade, we have seen once unassailable networks like NBC, ABC, and CBS being forced to rethink their programming as they watched their market share erode to fearless upstarts producing important and visionary TV. The kinds of programming that made HBO such a premier and prestige cable destination have now spread to competitors like STARZ and Showtime, created new cable leaders like the AMC and FX channels, and inspired provider models like Netflix to get into the game.

So without further ado...Welcome to the first of ACB's Best TV Shows of 2013 (you can thank us later).
