Now we’re down to the final four. The Tennesse Titans, Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers are now one game away from the Super Bowl.
Last week the divisional round had everything. An upset in Baltimore, a comeback in Kansas City and close game in Green Bay.
I don’t expect these games to be close because all these teams have shown once they have a lead it is hard to catch any of them.
Here are my predictions for the Conference Championship weekend:
Tennessee Titans vs Kansas City Chiefs
This matchup is very interesting because these teams already played each other in week 10, so they know each other at least a little bit.
We all know the Titans will rely on Derrick Henry to lead them to victory. But if the Titans really want to win this game they need to find a way to stop that high powered offense of the Chiefs.
The Chiefs offense might be the scariest offense in all of football, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, Mecole Hardman and Patrick MaHomes. They can score on almost anybody so I don’t think they will have a problem scoring this weekend.
I’m more worried about their defense because if let the Titans get out to an early lead of about 10 points. It will be more difficult throughout the rest of the game because the Titans will not abandon the running game which will melt time off the clock.
I think the team whoever can capitalize off of turnovers will win this game.
Winner: Kansas City Chiefs
Green Bay Packers vs San Francisco 49ers
This game is tough to predict because both of these teams are very inconsistent. One week the Packers or the 49ers will be in a shootout while the next week they will have a hard time scoring.
I think the 49ers will rely heavily on their run game instead of Jimmy Garopplo because of the stack of the game. I really do believe the 49ers want their running game to go head-to-head with Aaron Rodgers instead of Jimmy G.
They want to control the clock and keep Rodgers off the field because in the past Rodgers has shown these are the type of games he lives for. He wants the ball in his hands with the game on the line.
But if the Packers really want to win this game they need their offense to be consistent. The receivers can’t drop passes when they are wide open and Aaron Jones needs to find holes so Rodgers does not have to do everything by himself.
Overall think this game will be a difference of 17 points.
