Now that we know it will be Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots in the AFC Championship and Atlanta Falcons vs. San Fransisco 49ers in the NFC Championship - what do you think ? Which 2 teams will prevail and what do you think the final scores will be ? Or close to it anyway ? Feel free to analyze the teams and give your reasons as well for your picks, if you so choose to. Or just a simple answer. Any kind of take will be great ! Let's have fun !
In my NFC championship game I pick the San Fransisco 49ers due to their strong defense and the Colin Kaepernick quarterback angle as this guy is from another planet . A QB who can run for even more yards than running backs, yet throws lasers on the money to his wide receivers. The Atlanta defense is going to have a very difficult time stopping this guy. He is the West coasts best kept secret as he went to college in remote Nevada so most of the country is unfamiliar with his college accomplishments . He's matured now so look out ! San Fransisco was eliminated by New York Giants last year in the NFC championship game, so they have a chip on their shoulder this time . They won't be denied this time. I pick a San Fransisco win.
In my AFC championship game I believe it's going to be a closer score than the NFC game. Baltimore was eliminated last year I believe by this same New England team so they have a chip on their shoulder. Plus Ray Lewis is retiring which provides them an even greater motivation to win this. New England's offense is the stuff legends of the game are made of - also which makes it difficult for ANY team to defend as they do all kinds of Houdini type hidden crap at the line of scrimmage with fast counts, slow counts, and in general Tom Brady playing magnificent mind games in order to screw with other defenses. But this isn't just ANY defense. This is the Baltimore Ravens defense . Much different than the Houston Texans. So as much as my instincts want to go with a New England win because of their huge Super Bowl history - I believe this time the baltimore Ravens will BARELY prevail - I emphasize BARELY. They didn't win a double overtime in Denver only to fail the week after. I pick Baltimore by an yelash.
Final Scores : San Francisco 49ers 42 Atlanta Falcons 24
Final Scores : Baltimore Ravens 35 New England Patriots 31
Super Bowl : San Fransisco 49ers 28 Baltimore Ravens 17
Peace out, Mr. Flipper ( As always I look forward to your takes ! )
