Let's see what ya got!
Titans at Chiefs
Titans are shocking the world with their deep run to the AFC Championship Game. I'm actually not surprised they won. Its the tried & true formula for winning in the NFL. Run the ball. Play defense. Don't turn the ball over. We've watched the Bears do this for years.
I believe Mahomes will do something great that the Titans cannot overcome. Titans best defense is to keep Derrick Henry on the field & Mahomes off it. The Chiefs had their "ooopsie" game last week with all the turnovers early. Their offense STILL dropped 51 on the Texans. I think they're a freight train right now & next stop is Miami. The ride stops here for the Titans Chiefs 44 Titans 20
Packers at 49'ers
Well, here we are. The "Deep Run" in the playoffs that nobody wanted to believe in except the guys in that locker room at 1265. Worst 14-3 team of all time. Fraudulent team, right?? Records of teams in a 2nd game after getting curb stomped by 25 or more is 22-14 (So I've heard elsewhere) meaning the team winning the first matchup still wins a majority of the 2nd matchup.
This game is all about controlling the LoS. Who does it best, will win.
The biggest key to this game is the Packer O-Line vs. the Niner D-Line. It really comes down to that. Alex Light vs Bosa is a complete joke of a matchup. Fortunately we won't be seeing that to start the game. The Niners have 49 first round draft choices on the defense because they've drafted in the top of the draft for the last decade. Garappolo himself said his ACL tear may have been a blessing in disguise because they got Bosa. The Packer O-Line definitely has it's work cut out. They are the best pass blocking O-Line in the league. Now it's time to prove it against the best defense in the league. Will they hold up? It will be a fascinating matchup to see.
Packers gave the Niners the blueprint to beat the Vikings & the Viking O-Line is no match for the Niners or the Packers. That's why we are here. These are the 2 best teams in the NFC. Saints would've lost to Green Bay had they beaten the Vikings.
The Packer D-Line (IMO) is a little better than the Niner O-Line. They have a shot to get after Jimmy & force some bad throws. Their task will be stopping the run of that 3-headed monster (Mostert, Breida & Coleman). If they can do that, I believe they can put some pressure on Jimmy G. & Jimmy will toss up a few. The question is....will our DB's catch the INT? Because they really haven't so far (Except Kark Cuzzins).
How will this game end?
It's going to be tight, gut-wrenching, nerve wracking. Probably take another decade off my life. Not sure how many I have left.
Can the Packers get +2 in the turnover ratio? I believe if they do, they will win this game 26-23 with Mason Crosby kicking a 52 yard FG as time expires after getting "iced" by Shanahan.
Packers 26 49'ers 23
So that's it folks. Are you ready to head to Miami for Super Bowl LIV?
I know this much....No matter what happens, I'm super proud of this team & how they've battled all year long. If the ride ends after Sunday, I stand up & clap & cheer because it's been a tremendous ride. Thank you Packers. Thanks for making me believe again.
