The NFL Thread: The Post Season Awakens!

Postby Ranoria » Tue Sep 06, 2016 1:13 am

We're drawing closer and closer to the end. The Patriots begin their playoff run with what is projected to be a "cupcake game" against the Titans. The Falcons will have a shot to take down the second team in the NFC that came into the year with a second year QB who became a star in 2017, only this time, that QB won't be starting. The Steelers have a rematch in their first playoff matchup against the Jaguars, with starter Blake Bortles having never lost a playoff game, and, more importantly, a defense that denied the Steelers earlier this season. The Saints and Vikings will play in Minneapolis, and the winner of that game will earn a ticket to the NFC Championship, who's winner will earn the opportunity to play in that stadium again three weeks later in Super Bowl 52.

Patriots-Cardinals Super Bowl for me. Someone has to win the NFC Panthers-Cards-Packers-Seahawks slug fest and I think it will be the Cards, too talented all over the field not to, whilst the Pats will waltz through the play-offs - even without Brady for the first four.

All I know for certain is that this will be another disappointing season for the Falcons.

Yes. As we all know, the Super Bowl is played between two AFC teams. I can't wait.

Actually, it's going to be interesting to see what team that conference sends this year. I can think of several dark horse options...
