What a weekend in store for the NFL, as the playoffs continue to get interesting. We got a new comer to the fold. What is more intriguing is that 3 of the 4 teams will be looking to win a super bowl for the 1st time ever. Only the New England Patriots have been the recent winners of a super bowl. How about them Jacksonville Jaguars, being the story of the playoffs thus far? First they barely beat the Buffalo Bills, and then beat up on the Pittsburgh Steelers last weekend. I mean that is a shocker for the ages, we thought it was 1996 all over again. In that season, the Jaguars beat the Bills and the Broncos. Then playing, and losing to the surprising New England Patriots, in the AFC title game that year. We will see how the Jaguars fare this time around. They will need to contain Tom Brady and the rest of the dynamic Patriots.
In the NFC title game, who knew it would be the Eagles and the Vikings? This one could be my toughest pick of the season. I honestly don’t know who to root for? Both teams are starting backup quarterbacks. The Vikings really don’t have a starter, but they have 3 capable quarterbacks that could start on any team. Keenum, Bradford, and Bridgewater are all active for this game. As for the Eagles they have Nick Foles, need I say more? Since taking over for Carson Wentz, Foles has played decently for the most part. I however have yet to see his best game. This would be a good time for one. So this game should be an interesting one.
AFC Championship Game: Patriots over Jaguars
NFC Championship Game: Vikings over Eagles
There you have it, and cannot wait for the super bowl in Minnesota in 2 weeks. I am not doing the pro bowl so don’t even ask this year.
