Andy Capwell’s Championship Weekend Predictions
The AFC and NFC Championship games are this Sunday and you can hear both games right here on B-98.5! The match-ups look to be exactly what the NFL and football fans were hoping for, the potential of two epic games. Here go my predictions!NFC Championship Game: San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks
The toughest and loudest stadium in the NFL. In fact, seismic activity has been recorded from the crowd being so loud.
The 49ers come into the game as one the hottest teams in football. I think their offense has improved throughout the season, due to in part by the return of Micheal Crabtree. I give the 49ers a slight edge on offense, even though Marshawn Lynch could be the best running back left in the playoffs.
On the defensive side of the ball, I like San Francisco's front seven a
little more than Seattle's, but the Seahawks' secondary more than makes up the difference.
This will be a knockdown, drag out fight with Seattle edging out San Francisco 16-13.
The AFC Championship Game features the battle between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. The Patriots had the huge comeback win during the season against Denver and look for another high scoring game this Sunday.
The Patriots' running game has been rock solid over the past few weeks and I think they'll have some success running the ball, but I think the Patriots will pass more this Sunday against a depleted Broncos secondary.
The Broncos' running game has also improved and they ran through the Patriots during the regular season. The Broncos also have all their weapons on offense this game, not like during the regular season game. However, the will be without some key defensive players this game. That all adds up to what should be a high scoring shootout.
I think the injuries with the Patriots defense will be too much to overcome with this powerful Denver offense. I'll take Denver 41-31.
