NFC Championship

Carolina Panthers vs Arizona Cardinals

The Panthers and Cardinals find themselves in the NFC Championship after defeating their divisional round opponents. The Panthers come off a 31-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Carolina controlled the first half, scoring 31 points to Seattle’s O. The Seahawks almost pulled off a historic comeback, but Carolina held strong. The Cardinals went back and forth with the Green Bay Packers and eventually won in thrilling fashion in overtime 26-20. Both teams looked shaky at times. Carson Palmer seemed nervous all game for Arizona, throwing two picks. One strength both teams have is their defense, and many believe this game will come down to which defense makes the most plays. The Panthers have been dominant all season and the Cardinals have shown to fall apart at times. Carolina has been doubted all season, but I’m not betting against them in this game.

Score: Panthers 23 Cardinals 17

AFC Championship

Denver Broncos vs New England Patriots

The Denver Broncos are entering the AFC Championship game after a hard fought, 23-16 victory last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The New England Patriots are coming off an equally close performance, beating the Kansas City Chiefs 27-20. Now, ladies and gentlemen, prepare yourself for Manning vs Brady part 17. However, this isn’t about Manning vs Brady. This is about the Broncos vs the Patriots. As long as Manning doesn’t turn the ball over and the Denver receivers decide to catch the ball this week (7 dropped passes last weekend), they have a chance to beat this very talented New England team. The Patriots always show up in the playoffs, but the Broncos’ league best defense should propel them to the Super Bowl.

Score: Broncos 28 Patriots 24
