The "Stark" breakdown of the AFC & NFC Championship Games


Starting this article off by saying I put money on the Ravens to beat the Bills last week so take everything I write with a grain of salt...


With two of the greatest to ever throw the ball in the NFL squaring off in the NFC Championship Game, I’m expecting an all-out blood bath. A ridiculous amount of points being scored by both the Packers and the Buccaneers. Both teams have exceptional firepower offensively and are going to look to make a statement. I see this being a back and forth game –ultimately coming down to who can manage the ball in the red zone. I want Aaron Rodgers and the Packers to win this game, however, I’ve learned to never bet against Brady... This would be the first time, in a long time, that the city hosting the Super Bowl, would see their team competing for the title.


Both Gronk and Fournette are going to be the “x” factors for the Bucs as Brady will be able to rely on his guys’ to push them over the top, and get them into Super Bowl


NFC Championship Game Prediction: Bucs beat Packers 37-34


As we head over to the AFC, everything is up in the air... Patrick Mahomes is a god with the football in his hand, and probably would be with a baseball as well if he had stuck to that sport. The big question is, is he going to be healthy enough to play? I see him starting the game because it’s Patrick Mahomes and he’s a superstar –but the likelihood of him finishing the game in my eyes is a longshot. Very few individuals have recovered from a concussion within a week –if the Chiefs get through, I see him having a huge impact on the Super Bowl.


The Bills defense is going to have their hands full with one of the best offenses in the NFLbarrelling down on them in their home barn. They were able to hold the Ravens to just 3 points last week and played surprisingly well despite going up against last year's MVP. Will they have enough Billsmafia energy to get them through to their first Superin god knows how long? It’s up for debate, but what isn’t up for debate isJosh Allen’s talent. The kid is no joke, and he’s going to be a top 5 quarterback in the NFL in my opinion over the next decade.
