Well divisional weekend has come and gone. I went 3-1 in predictions. Last year I went 4-0. The one game I got wrong, was the game no one expected to go a certain way. You see, the Ravens went on a 12 game win streak, put up 59 points in a single game, put up 40 in 3 straight games, beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh with their backups, then in the divisional somehow lost to the Titans. I said the Ravens would win by 30. I bet 5 bucks on it. But it turns out that the Ravens didn’t take the game seriously or study for it. They are the new Apollo Creed. The Titans won 28-13. My friend predicted the Titans to win cuz he is a moron and of course got it right, won 5 bucks and will never let me hear the end of it. So that’s just great. Let’s move on to my Conference Championship Predictions.
Chiefs vs Titans:
The Chiefs were down 24-0 to the Texans in the 1st quarter. Then, Mahomes got so hot the Chiefs ended up scoring 51 points. 51-31 was the final score and Mahomes even threw 4 touchdowns in 1 quarter. I just think that the Titans won’t be able to come into this environment and beat a substantially better team. The Patriots did last year, but that was different. The Titans did NOT beat the Patriots and Ravens teams we all know this playoffs. The Patriots Offense was horrific and that includes Brady. Then, the Ravens obviously didn’t take the Titans seriously when they should have and played lazy and week. The Titans will put up a good fight against the Chiefs, but will not win. I say 34-27 Chiefs.
49ers vs Packers:
The 2nd straight year, the NFC Championship was exactly what I predicted at the beginning of the Playoffs. I was wrong about the winner (thanks to the refs) but this year it could be different. I said 31-21 Niners at the start of the playoffs and I’m sticking by it. The Packers only beat the Seahawks (who are highly overrated) at home. Now they’re going to Levi’s to play the 49ers who dominated their divisional game. The Niners also stomped the Packers this season winning by 29 and they weren’t even fully healthy. Now they are. The Packers probably studied more for the Niners this time around and will put up a better fight, but I just don’t see them being able to do it.
I just need to vent really quick: I GOT SO UNLUCKY IN POKER. I WAS LEADING THE STANDINGS HEADING INTO IT, BUT LOST EVERYTHING GETTING UNLUCKY HEADING OUT. SO MUCH BULLSHIT TODAY!
I said last week my new years resolution is to get more Madden comebacks, well I got one this weekend against my friend. But that was only 28 points in a good amount of time.
