It’s Championship Sunday, the last morsel or football we can enjoy until February (don’t even make the argument the Pro Bowl counts).
Predictions by all staff, analysis by Ethan Anderson.
Rams v Saints
Blaise (70-43-1): Saints 35 Rams 31
Christian (61-52-1): Saints 42 Rams 31
Jake (66-47-1): Rams 35 Saints 31
Ethan (61-52-1): Rams 34 Saints 30
I don’t see the Rams rushing for 275 rushing yards like they did last week against this Saints’ run defense, but Todd Gurley and CJ Anderson have quickly become a two headed monster at running-back.
Sean McVay’s game plan last week was stellar and I while he has one less week this week, I still think he will draw up a great game plan. I know the Saints under Drew Brees and Sean Payton have never lost a home playoff game, but last week’s performance bothered me. The Eagles might be good but the Saints offense just doesn't look the same and really hasn’t for a while. I like the Rams to get revenge on Sunday in the Big Easy.
Patriots v Chiefs
B: Chiefs 38 Patriots 32
C: Chiefs 27 Patriots 22
J: Fightin’ Andy Reid's- 45 Evil Empire- 38
E: Pats 30 Chiefs 29
I was wrong. I called the Pats pretenders and they just laugh it off and keep winning. This is an intriguing re-match because Brady has not won a on the road in the AFC Championship game since 2004. Until they lose, until the dynasty is over, I can’t pick against these guys anymore. Pats win a close on on the road.
