Last week had some fantastic games. The Green Bay Packers beat the Dallas Cowboys in the last nail biting, thirty-five seconds of the fourth quarter and the Pittsburgh Steelers just managed to escape going to overtime. Now today presents the last two playoff games before the Super Bowl and I am so excited.
The AFC Championship
As always the New England Patriots will be hosting the AFC championship. They will face the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight. The Patriots had a ridiculously easy schedule for the regular season. Their first playoff game was against the Texans who aren’t that great. Now they will finally face a very good team and I can’t wait.
I believe it’s going to be a close game. Both of these teams have good defenses, great quarterbacks, awesome receivers, but the Steelers have something the Patriots don’t have…a very good running back. Levion Bell is an astounding running back who I know will get over a hundred yards in this game. The Patriots are good, which is to be expected, but I don’t think they’ll be able to beat the Steelers. I predict the score will be 27-24 with Pittsburgh winning.
The NFC Championship
Of course this is the game I’m looking the most forward to. The Green Bay Packers will have to go against the Atlanta Falcons. I’m rooting for the Packers because after that awesome game last week it would be terrible if they had to go home. It would also be more exciting if the match-up in the Super Bowl was the Packers going against either the Steelers or the Patriots. I believe this game is going to come down to the wire. The Falcons’ offense is amazing and after last week’s performance they have become a real threat to win the entire Super Bowl. I think the neutralizer for the Falcons will be Aaron Rodgers. If he can evade their defense and put points on the board they have a serious chance of winning. I have no doubt this will be a shootout. The winner of this game will really come down to which team has the least amount of mistakes. I’m predicting the score will be 35-34 with the Packers winning.
