It’s Championship Weekend In The NFL And Here Are My Picks
After going 4 and 0 during my wild card weekend picks, I came back to earth last weekend with my picks for the divisional playoffs. I went a respectable 3-1, but as Coach Belichick would say...Do Your Job!
So onward and forward to the weekend. Both games should be great games. We can only hope.
Here are my picks:
No. 4 Green Bay at No. 2 Atlanta
TV: 3:05 p.m. ET (Fox)
There isn't a hotter player in the NFL these days then Aaron Rodgers. But what concerns me about Green Bay is their defense. And Matt Ryan and the Falcons have shown they can score. I think this will be a high scoring game, but I like Atlanta at home.
Green Bay 24
No. 3 Pittsburgh at No. 1 New England
TV: 6:40 p.m. ET (CBS)
This is the game everyone is waiting for; well at least here in Patriots nation. The Pats defense has been playing great. But how will they stop Le'veon Bell? Or Antonio Brown? Or Ben Roethlisberger? I am not sure, but I have a feeling the Pats will come out firing Sunday night. Will Pittsburgh be able to match them score for score. I don't think so,
New England 35
So there you have it. An Atlanta/New England Superbowl would be fun. Or a Green Bay/New England Superbowl would work, too. But first, it's bring on the Steelers Sunday night in Foxboro.
B98.5 will be carrying the Patriots/Steelers game Sunday. Pre game show is scheduled for 6 PM, and kick off is at 6:40 PM.
