NFL Playoffs

LeGarrette Blount rushed for 166 yards and a franchise-record four touchdowns, and the New England Patriots gained their third straight spot in the AFC title game with a 43-22 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. The Patriots are the first team since the 2001-04 Philadelphia Eagles to go to at least three consecutive conference championship games. Tom Brady completed 13-of-25 passes for 198 yards, but was held without a touchdown pass.

Marshawn Lynch rushed for 140 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Seahawks held off the Saints 23-15 in their NFC Divisional Round game at CenturyLink Field. Russell Wilson was 9-of-18 with 103 yards for Seattle, which will host San Francisco or Carolina in the NFC Championship Game next weekend. The Seahawks jumped out to a 16-0 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Drew Brees threw for 309 yards and a late touchdown to Marques Colston, who ended with 11 catches and 144 yards in the loss.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
