The NFL playoffs are down to its final four, and if you were hoping the top teams would be playing, you are in for a treat.
As Championship Weekend is here, and only two teams will get the chance to play in Super Bowl XLVIII in my hometown of New York City.
Also, these games could not come at a better time for us Yankees fans. Watching some good football will offer a much-needed break from all the craziest surrounding the MLB vs. Yankees Alex Rodriguez saga. Ah maroon….
Here are my predictions, along with the up coming schedule for next weekend’s Championship Games.
Sunday, Jan. 19 at 3 p.m. EST on CBS.
Since I picked the Patriots to go all the way to the Super Bowl that would entail New England winning this game in Denver.
In all honesty, choosing a winner in this game is next to impossible.
The only fact I can tell you is that this game features two of the best QB’s ever to play in the NFL, and is sure to be an instant classic.
Brady and Manning are already living legends in their own right. Whenever either of these two takes the field it is incredible to watch them both take charge of their respective offenses.
This is a match-up NFL fans love, and after enduring the New York Giants this past season my respect level for the two veterans only continues to grow.
FINAL: Patriots beat Broncos with a score of 24-21.
Sunday, Jan. 19 at 6:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
Another dream match-up will follow the Pats/Broncos, as the Seattle Seahawks will play host to the San Francisco 49ers.
Both teams are loaded with talent, but it is tough to pic against the Seahawks when they are playing at home.
Seattle’s infamous 12th man is the nickname bestowed on Seahawk fans for being unbearably loud when opposing offenses take the field. The Seahawks loyalists broke the Guinness World Record for loudest crowd roar twice this past season, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they do it a third time this Sunday.
Rumor has it that the Seahawks will not sell tickets to any fans from the California area, and you can bet the 12th man has something to do with that.
The 49ers have the most dominant defenses in the NFL, but the Seahawks are a formidable number two.
So, I expect his game to be a low scoring affair.
FINAL: Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers 14-10.
I am pleased that my Super Bowl picks are both still in it, so I am sticking to my original prediction that it will be the Seattle Seahawks vs. New England Patriots in the end.
So which NFL team do you think will be standing in the end?
Please feel free to disagree with me. Actually, I encourage it.
In all honesty, choosing a winner in this game is next to impossible. When checking the odds at sports bookmaker bwin they have the Patriots down as slight favorites, but anything could happen on the day.
