NFL Playoffs 2013: Conference Championship Round

Four teams remain alive in the NFL. The Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers, who will be battling it out on Sunday in Seattle for the NFC Title, and the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots, who will be clashing in Denver for the AFC Title. Here are my predictions for the NFC and AFC Title games…

Game 1:

New England Patriots vs. Denver Broncos

We have one hell of an AFC Title game set for Saturday. The Patriots and the Broncos, Brady vs. Manning, the AFC Title on the line and a chance to reach the Super Bowl?! It doesn’t get any better then this folks. Unfortunately for the Broncos, their starting cornerback and easily their best cover cornerback, Chris Harris, will not be playing in this game with a torn ACL, a huge blow for an already dismantled Broncos defense lacking starting DT Kevin Vickerson and star OLB Von Miller. Of course, on the other side, the Patriots have had more then their share of losses, both offensively and defensively. No Rob Gronkowski, no Sebastian Vollmer on the offense. No Vince Wilfork, no Jerod Mayo, and no Brandon Spikes defensively for the Pats. So both teams have had to overcome adversity all season long to get where they are right now, fighting for a chance to go to New York. I think this game will be an offensive showdown between two of the greatest QB’s of all team and easily two first ballot hall of famers in Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. Brady and Manning will be trading TD’s all game long, but in the end it will be Manning throwing that last, game deciding TD. I picked the Broncos to win the AFC in the beginning of the season, and I’m not changing that prediction…

Broncos 44, Patriots 41

 

Game 2:

San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks

Nothing changes in the NFC title game. This is, once again, a hell of a match-up for the NFC Title. Unlike the AFC Title game, which features two of the best offenses in football, the NFC Title game will feature the two best defenses in football in the 49ers and Seahawks. Not only that, but it will also feature two of the games best young quartebacks in Colin Kaepernick of San Fran, and Russell Wilson of Seattle. The game will be played in Seattle, which has been a near impossible place to win over the past two seasons. However, the Niners have made it to the NFC Championship game for three years in a row now, and are the defending NFC Title winners, so playing in Seattle (or anywhere for that matter) means nothing to the boys from Northern California. But whether the noise in Century Link effects the Niners or not, it will not alter the outcome of this game. In what will be the exact opposite of the offensive shootout that will take place during the AFC Title game, the NFC Title game will all depend on how good each defense performs, and in the end, the better defense will prevail…
