After this weekend we will unfortunately have only 3 games of football left so hopefully this weekend makes for a good couple of games. We have a couple of great matchups and potential upsets this weekend. There are currently 8 teams left in the playoffs and I believe all 8 have a real shot at winning the superbowl, Let’s see how I think the games turn out this weekend and who advances to their respective conference championship games.
#6 Indianapolis Colts vs #1 Kansas City Chiefs
Saturday, January 12 4:35 PM
The Colts are coming off a big win last week over the Texans which may be a huge advantage for them but the Chiefs are all rested after having a first round bye so this game should be interesting. The Colts may be the 6 seed and the Chiefs may be the 1 seed but there really not all that different. Andrew Luck and the Colts have a real shot at winning this game and heading to the AFC championship but I think Mahomes and the Chiefs win this one by the score of 42-35.
#4 Dallas Cowboys vs #2 Los Angeles Rams
Saturday, January 12th 8:15 PM
I think this will be the worst game of the weekend, I don’t see the Cowboys defense being able to hold the Rams offense to any less than 35 points and I don’t see the Rams defense letting up any more than 24 point so with that being said I think the Rams win this game by a decent amount. The Cowboys may put up a fight for the first half but after that I think it’ll be all Rams for the second half. Rams beat the Cowboys 38-17.
#5 Los Angeles Chargers vs #2 New England Patriots
Sunday, January 13th 1:05 PM
In my opinion this game all depends on the weather. If it snows I think the Patriots win with no problem but if not I think Rivers and the Chargers take the win. The weather looks like it will not be snowing come game time so I think the Chargers have the advantage. This is most likely Phillip Rivers last chance to get his Super Bowl ring so hopefully he can figure out a way to get a win over the Patriots and head to the AFC championship. I think the Chargers will win and head to conference championship weekend by a score of 27-24.
#6 Philadelphia Eagles vs #1 New Orleans Saints
Sunday, January 13th 4:40 PM
I think this is the most interesting game of the weekend. You never know what to expect with the Eagles and especially Nick Foles. These 2 teams met earlier in the season and it ended in a terrible blowout in favor of the Saints. I don’t think that will be the outcome again, It will definitely be a closer game. The game is being played in the dome which gives the Saints a huge advantage but I think the Eagles will still put up a fight. Anything can happen in this game but I think the Saints win 28-21.
