It was a very entertaining weekend once again of NFL playoff football once again. Now, we sit at four and then it’s onto the biggest stage of them all, Super Bowl 50. This is what you play for ladies and gentlemen. Below is a tiny teaser of what’s to come next weekend for you, the big time football fan. Enjoy everybody.
AFC Championship: Patriots at Broncos- Every since Peyton Manning signed with the Denver Broncos in 2012, both Denver and the New England Patriots have both claimed the top two seeds in the AFC playoff picture in those five seasons and we will see these two battle for the right to get to the Super Bowl and represent the AFC. This also means we will see two of the best quarterbacks in NFL history meet for the seventeenth time and fourth time overall in the playoffs. When these two last met, a guy named Brock Osweiler was under center and he handed the Patriots their very first loss of the season after they started 10-0. This is what you wanted to see. One legend against another for a chance to get to California.
NFC Championship: Cardinals at Panthers- Many thought this would be Seattle and Green Bay for the NFC once again. They’ll both be at home with us watching the top two seeds in the NFC square off. I wasn’t too impressed with the way Carolina looked today. They got off to that hot start and once the second half came around, they let Seattle back into the game pretty much. 31 points in the first half by the Panthers and zero in the second half. Those mistakes will have to be looked at especially with the most complete team in football coming to town. The Cardinals almost remind me of a basketball team. They can play fast, slow the game down and they have an inside/outside attack and I love how they spread the football around to their receivers. This will be a great game.
