    Six NFL franchises that peaked and are heading downhill

    Could the Packers' best football be behind them? Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports To quote Bill Murray from Groundhog Day – “It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be grey, and it’s gonna last the rest of your life.” The shelf life for contention in the NFL is about as small as any professional sports league.

In their exuberance, however, the Titans took things too far, desecrating the Terrible Towel. The Titans promptly lost to the Ravens in the divisional round, the Steelers won the Super Bowl, and talk emerged of a Terrible Towel curse. And in the eight seasons since 2008, the Titans haven’t made it back to the playoffs. So now with Nashville’s hockey team facing Pittsburgh’s in the Stanley Cup Final, a question arises: Is the curse transferable from football to hockey? If that seems like
