This week determines who goes to the Super Bowl and who goes home. This maybe the most boring playoffs yet because all but two games were blowouts. All four team have a ton of momentum right now and it’s going to make both games very competitive. I slept on it and thought about what is going to happen or what could happen. So here we go, let’s get down to business.
AFC Championship Game
New York Jets vs. Indianapolis Colts
The Colts were well on their way to a perfect season when they put in their second stringers and pretty much let the Jets win and helped the Jets get into the playoffs and also preventing the Broncos and Dolphins from getting in. The Dolphins and Broncos are two of the teams that gave the Colts a run for their money when they won those 13 games in a row, proving the point to me that the Colts didn’t want to face either team. I firmly believe that move alone is going to come back to haunt them because the Jet defense and running game is running on all cylinders right now and I believe the Jets want to prove they can beat them with all of the Colts starters playing. The Jets weren’t suppose to be in the playoffs and they weren’t suppose to beat the Bengals or Charger. Well guess what? They are not suppose to beat the Colts either but I believe they will and move on the Super Bowl. Shonn Greene will be MVP of the AFC Championship game. That’s my prediction for the AFC Championship.
NFC Championship Game
Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans Saints
I’ve been waiting to see this match up all year long because they didn’t play each other in the regular season. In my humble opinion that Saints have not seen a good and consistent defense all year whereas the Vikings have. I believe the Vikings defense will exploit Drew Brees once and for all and Brett Favre will exploit the Saints defense, something that no one has done all year long. Favre is the master of making defenses look bad. Just ask everyone that’s played against him this year. They both have the same amount of weapons but in my opinion Brett spreads the ball around more and any receiver of his can come up big on any given day which tells me that all of his receivers will come up big this Sunday. The Vikings will win a nail biter and put themselves in the Super Bowl. Brett Favre will be MVP of the NFC Championship game.
So there you have it, my prediction will be the New York Jets vs. Minnesota Vikings in the Super Bowl in Miami. Check back Sunday Night or Monday morning for my recap on both games. I cannot wait for Sunday and the great football that awaits us.
