4erI’ve said it once, I’ve said it twice and I’ll say it again…Football is hard to predict. Any Given Sunday is not just a great movie (film reviews are coming back y’all) it’s also the realest phrase in football, any given sunday you NEVER know what could happen. Chiefs down 24 points in the first quarter, Ravens high powered offense gets shut down and the pathetic Green Bay Packers outlast the Seahawks WHO TF saw that coming?
AFC Championship Game – Kansas City Chiefs vs Tennessee Titans
If you look at my predictions since day 1, I never believed in both these teams and guess what? I’m dumb. Very dumb. But not today, I have the Titans winning this game…31-28 a field goal decides this one. In today’s game everyone in the media focuses on quarterbacks and it makes sense for buisness but it doesn’t make sense for THIS GAME. We know Mahomes is a going to put up numbers but we have to focus on the Trenches because that is how the Titans will be remembered. Their O and D Line literally bully the life out of opponents, my Ravens had the best O-Line in football…until we played Tennessee. I expect Kevin Byrd, Jurell Casey and Taylor Lewan to have huge games.
Houston lost last week because they were in man defense and had no answers for Kelce, but the Titans have athletic linebackers to put fear in the Chiefs offense. Expect a slow start and a wild finish, with Derrick Henry stomping this weak Chiefs defense.
NFC Championship Game – Green Bay Packers vs San Francisco 49ers
Football evolves but to the core it stays the same, especially in the playoffs. You don’t get fancy, you don’t get finesse, you do what got you to the dance and the 49ers can salsa. Or Krump…because they are electric and wild! This team is literally in the business of punching teams in the mouth and it starts with that elite front four lead my Nick Bosa. I have them embarrassing Green Bay 38-24 because the Packers have not faced a team like this. I’d argue that San Fran has the best D-Line and Linebackers in the league and let’s not get started about Sherman and that secondary.
I expect Green Bay to be one dimensional because they will be forced to throw all night, why? Because Aaron Jones will have trouble finding holes in the first level, Kwon Alexander and Fred Warner are two of the fastest backers in the league and they go sideline to sideline. Expect Aaron Rodgers to throw 40+ pass attempts in a losing effort.
