As the excitement and anxiety of the season ramp up, many are looking way ahead to the playoffs and the possibility if a Super Bowl run. If that is you and you want to see the game in person, you better book a hotel room now.

Many hotels in metro Phoenix, including Hilton, Marriott and IHG properties, are sold out for the weekend of Feb. 10-12, plus the days after the game, according to a check of hotel reservations websites.

Things are getting real now as the Buffalo Bills have cut their roster down to 53 players. One of the most surprising of which is quarterback Matt Barkley.
