We have reached the Championship games this season and we have two exciting contests. The Green Bay Packers will be hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Buffalo Bills travel to the Kansas City Chiefs. The winners will get the chance to go to the Superbowl and win it all.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Green Bay Packers (8.05pm KO Sunday)
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have marched into the NFC Championship game after a good 11-5 record. After that they went and produced two decent playoff wins against Washington and New Orleans. Although it didn’t take a lot to win these games, they still had to get the job done. Tom Brady will be leading the Bucs into Green Bay in the hope of getting to another Superbowl. However, this will be their hardest test so far as the Packers offence is on fire and it’s going to be tough conditions at Lambeau field.
The Green Bay Packers took the number one seed after finishing with an 13-3 record in the NFC. After having the wildcard weekend off they beat the LA Rams comfortably last week. Home advantage is massive for Green Bay given the cold conditions and although Tom Brady will be ok is team may struggle. Aaron Rodgers will be hoping to get back to the Superbowl for the first time in ten years. Given he is odds on to be the MVP you wouldn’t bet against him doing it.
Verdict : The Buccaneers beat the Packers at home in week six comfortably but this will be a different story. The weather is going to be cold and the Bucs are from Florida. Although this won’t affect Brady after his 20 years in New England the others will find it harder. The Packers defence have got better and the offence is on fire. The Bucs are also a very good side and this will end up being very close but the Packers will just take it.
Buffalo Bills vs Kansas City Chiefs (11.40pm KO Sunday)
The Buffalo Bills had a great regular season finishing at 13-3 and taking the AFC East title. The Bills have flattered to deceive over the last few years but they are the real deal now. After that 13-3 record they then went and beat the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens in tough encounters. To be able to beat both of these teams, even at home, is very impressive. Josh Allen has been great all year and his partnership with Stefon Diggs will be vital if the Bills are to succeed. Also, the defence has improved but the Chiefs are a different level to what they have faced so they need to play their best game.
The Kansas City Chiefs are the defending Superbowl champions and AFC number one seed after their 14-2 record this season. The Chiefs squeaked past the Cleveland Browns last week but they have been doing just enough all season. Patrick Mahomes has been in concussion protocol this week after his injury last week but will be fit to play. This team has so many weapons on the offence it will be tough for the Bills to stop them. Also, they have a good defence that will be able to shut down parts of the Bills attack.
