Who Should I Back For The Offer?
For the offer, you have to pick one of the teams in one of the Conference Championship games to win so who should you be looking to back in each game?
NFC Conference Championship
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers
Two legendary quarterbacks with nothing to prove go head to head in Green Bay in what should be a cracking game between the two teams.
It is notable that the Bucs did hand the Packers their biggest defeat of the Regular Season, a 38-10 loss in Tampa on Week 6. Tom Brady is used to snow and cold weather games, but it is also worth noting Tampa are 0-8 in cold weather games in Wisconsin against the Packers.
That is the worst record of any NFL team.
This should be a cracker and while Brady-magic always manifests itself in the playoffs, I think Aaron Rodgers will be the quarterback leading his team to a narrow victory here. My pick is the Packers, but only just.
AFC Conference Championship
- Buffalo Bills @ Kansas City Chiefs
Whether you want to pick the Bills or the Chiefs, my advice to you here is to wait until we see the situation regarding Patrick Mahomes availability is resolved.
The Chiefs with Mahomes are a much stronger team, than without him. So much so that if he doesn’t play, I feel this sways the game in favor of the Bills. If Mahomes does recover from his concussion and can play, then I feel the Chiefs are the team to back.
It’s strange to have a game that in my opinion is dependent on the fitness of one player, but I do think that is the case here. As such, hold off on picking a winner in this game until Mahomes’ eligibility to play is confirmed.
