Hey, all. . .apologies for the lack of new stuff over the past couple of days. Been a bit under the weather over here.
So, our conference championship games are set in both the AFC and the NFC. Over on the AFC side of the ledger, the New England Patriots have been installed as a pretty sizable favorite. . .think the spread I've seen around most places (for entertainment purposes only, of course) has been around nine points. . .when they host the Baltimore Ravens in a re-match of last year's AFC Championship Game. In the NFC, the top two seeds will meet up for the right to go to the Super Bowl, as the Atlanta Falcons will welcome the San Francisco 49ers to town. At this time, the Falcons are anywhere from a 2.5 to 3-point favorite, so the Vegas "experts" are pretty much declaring that game a coin flip at this point.
I'm just curious as to who fans of the Minnesota Vikings are pulling for this weekend, if anybody. Personally, I think we're going to get a regular season rematch in Super Bowl XLVII, as I think the 49ers and the Patriots are going to emerge victorious this weekend. Not attempting to disrespect either Baltimore or Atlanta, but right now I just think those are the two superior teams.
To follow everything about those four teams, be sure to check out The Falcoholic, Niners Nation, Pats Pulpit, and Baltimore Beatdown. For now, let us know who you think will be playing for this year's NFL Championship in New Orleans in a couple of weeks.
