January 2014 Playoffs have been the best. This Sunday features the top four NFL teams vying to meet in Super Bowl XLVIII (48) on February 2, 2014.
FOOTBALL’S BEST QB’S FACE OFF
Arguably two of the game’s greatest quarterbacks will face off at 12 PM (PST) in Denver for the AFC title. Peyton Manning broke NFL records this year and has the advantage of a better offense than New England and home field advantage. But Tom Brady has the better record of 10-4 against Manning, the better coach (Bill Belichick) and in my opinion the psychological edge over Peyton.
Despite Manning’s comparable field generalship & experience as well having a stronger arm, Peyton has not fared as well at playoff time. This is a double edged psychological advantage- Brady’s confidence to win when it counts in the big games and Manning’s self doubt based on experience. That’s what makes this particular game so interesting. PREDICTION: 34-31 BRONCOS.
The second game features the NFC’s two powerhouse teams in Seattle at 3:30 PM (PST). Two exciting young quarterbacks who can run as well as throw face off in Seattle as the Seattle Seahawks host the San Francisco 49’ers.
Coln Kaepernick vs. Russel Wilson should be another faceoff of two of the most exciting QB’s leading two of the toughest defensive teams in the NFL. Seattle’s got the home field advantage with the noisiest fans in football but the 49’ers are on a tear. PREDICTION: SAN FRANCISCO.
I may join some friends at the Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery in Orange to watch the games.
