NFL Playoff Picture: The Conference Championships

It’s the time of year again. The long awaited two games we have all been looking forwards to – even if our favorite team didn’t make the cut. It’s the final round of the NFL Playoffs before we head to the Super Bowl.

Last week I made my predictions on who would advance to this round, and wouldn’t you know it, I went 4-0 (read that post here). Today, I will make one more round of predictions leading up the Super Bowl, where I will make my final prediction of the year.

Let’s get this train rolling.

NFC Championship – Cardinals vs. Panthers: This is what everyone has been waiting for. A marquee matchup between two of the best NFC teams, and arguably two of the very finest in the league. This year, the Panthers will be once again hosting the Cardinals, but with all the marbles on the line.

Interestingly enough, the Seahawks dashed the Panthers’ hopes of going to the Super Bowl last year. This year, the Panthers were out for blood and took care of business. In another twist, a Palmer-less Cardinals team was destroyed by the Panthers in the Wild Card last year and now returns out for blood with the Super Bowl on the line.

At 15-1, the Panthers are the top seed, facing the No. 2 seed Cardinals at 13-3. Last week, the Cardinals beat the Packers in one of the best post-season games you will ever see, an OT thriller. The Panthers hung on after almost blowing a 31-point lead at halftime.

Both teams have a resilient and tenured quarterback under center, with Newton able to run like a power back and Palmer being a classic drop-passer. Both are candidates for the coveted MVP title, too. But, Palmer has a lot more weapons on the field than Newton does, and can tap Fitzgerald, Floyd, Brown, Fells and David Johnson to get his work done.

The Cardinals also have a very tenacious defense that is known for sacking the QB often (Rodgers was sacked 8 times in the last regular season matchup). Even though the Cardinals are playing on the road and have a 5-9 record against the Panthers over the years, this is the strongest team they have ever had, one with the deepest depth in the NFL this year. Needless to say, they’ll need to be in perfect form to pull out the win this weekend. But, with Palmer vying for a Super Bowl appearance, and a veteran defense waiting to take Newton to the turf, do not expect this to be a one-sided affair. My prediction: Cardinals win 35-32.

AFC Championship – Patriots vs. Broncos: An aging Manning looks to get one last shot at Super Bowl greatness. But his wobbly passes, injury prone frame and lack of power receivers could very well be his undoing. One big hit from the Pats defense line could see him out of the game (and likely his career) for good. Not to mention that Manning has lost to Brady a lot more times than he’s ever won, even if they are 2-2 in the post season against one another.

I’ve been saying it since the opening game of the season this year, and I will say it again: Tom Brady is playing with a chip on his shoulder. Brady is out to prove to the world that he never cheated and that he’s perfectly capable of taking an unprecedented fifth Super Bowl title in spite of what everyone around him has said.

The Pats did lose to the Broncos earlier this season. But Manning wasn’t starting and the Pats had most of their weapons sidelined for that game. This is an entirely different story. Brady has all of his weapons back. He made short business of the Chiefs last week. He’s in the prime of career. Sure, the Broncos are tough on defense. But they lack on offense. My prediction: Patriots win 28-14.

In any event I did take pleasure in reading through it.

  3. Just wanna input on few general things, The website layout is perfect, the articles is very superb : D.

  10. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

  70. Have you got any qualifications? doxycycline hyclate reviews There are lots of problems caused by how profit-biased the recovery has been. For one, income accruing to capital-owners is less likely to recycle quickly back through the economy and generate demand (as evidence, see the huge amount of idle cash balances on corporate balance sheets in recent years). If a larger share of income growth had translated into wage-growth, this would have sparked more self-generating demand and improved the recovery. From a political economy perspective, the rapid recovery of corporate profits has also likely led to less urgency from a potential ally in asking for more macroeconomic stimulus (corporate business, which, remember, strongly supported the Recovery Act).
