The NFL Championship Round Is Set

 13 replies

With the Divisional Round behind us, the NFL Championship games are set.

With all the action of the Divisional Round formally behind us, the NFL’s Championship games are officially set. Spoiler Alert: The Patriots are Still not in the AFC Championship Game.

NFC

In the NFC the favorites all won the games they were expected to. The 49ers beat the Vikings in a game that was never in question and the Packers were in control of their game, although Seattle Russell Wilson made it interesting near the end. The NFC Championship game sets up as many like to see, with the top two seeds facing off for rights to represent their conference in the Super Bowl. The two seed Packers will travel to the one seed 49ers next week to see who moves on and who moves out.

AFC

Meanwhile in the AFC things went a little less to script. The six seed Titans went into Baltimore and absolutely destroyed the one seed Ravens in nearly every facet of the game. Here in Kansas City the four seed Texans were well on their way to upsetting the two seed Chiefs going up 24-0 by the beginning of the second quarter. Unfortunately for the Texans, we have a Mahomes. Andy Reid and company butchered the bull on the side of Houston’s helmets and served up a juicy fiddy burger on Bill O’Brien. The AFC Championship game now sees the six seed Titans traveling to Kansas City to challenge a two seed Chiefs team that is looking for a second straight revenge game against the AFC South.

Nicely done.

Fun fact: Kansas City is 2-0 at home in the Andy Reid era when the red zones are yellow.

I saw on twitter some guys asking for a 90s red for the AFCCG. That would be a nice throwback as well.

I said this last night in the overnight thread:

I’ll probably say this tomorrow morning too, but I just want to point out that Andy Reid has brought this franchise 3 playoff wins now in the last 8 years. That’s tied with Marty for his entire time here. He’s 2 wins away from Hank Stram’s record. Suffice to say that Andy is rapidly approaching the greatest coach in Chiefs history now.

That is cool and I hope it happens this year.

It’s not really the titans in our way as much as Henry is in our way. Our weakness over the past few seasons on D has been stopping the run. Henry is by far the most dangerous RB we have faced in the playoffs since Andy has been here. Spags has done a heck of a job, hope that continues. Hope Jones is healthy also. Fortunately, with all of our recent history of failure in the playoffs, we now have by far the best QB (also player) in the league. If we can beat the titans, I think we take it all.

CHIEFS!!!!!

I read on ESPN, I believe, that the key for KC next week is to stop Tannehill and force Henry to carry the offense. I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to be the other way around

Our pass defense is good enough to stop anyone. Stopping Henry is the key.

ESPN can’t tell which way the sun sets, since their heads are so far up the rear ends of the Patriots…
