Monday Night Football

Could be interesting...

Last time Seattle played Philadelphia on MNF was 2005. Seattle had 194 yards of offense but capitalized on 6 turnovers...

NFL Conference Championship Weekend

Here we are with two weeks to go until SuperBowl LII which will be held at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

AFC Championship
Jacksonville @ New England

I think this one depends a lot on which Blake Bortles shows up today - if he doesn't through more than one interception today I think Jacksonville has a real good shot and beating the defending SuperBowl champions and punching their ticket to Minneapolis. The Jacksonville defense is going to get some pressure on Tom 'Pretty Boy' Brady but the dude has ice in his veins and the Patriots definitely have playoff experience - I would love to see the Patriots lose this one.

My prediction:
Jacksonville 24
New England 17

The Patriots came back to beat the Jaguars 24-20. Jacksonville led the entire game until the Brady touchdown pass to Amendola with 2:48 remaining in the fourth quarter. There isn't an adjective strong enough to describe home much I dislike the Patriots. I'd like to see the comparison of penalty yardage by quarter - I know they were even after the first quarter since the first penalty in the game wasn't called until the second quarter - that isn't something a Seahawk fan is familiar with.

NFC Championship
Minneapolis @ Philadelphia

If Carson Wentz were playing - I'd say there would be little doubt that Philadelphia doesn't end up representing the NFC in SuperBowl LII in two weeks but he's out and Nick Foles has done a decent job getting them this far. On the other side, Case Keenum has done a better-than-expected job of getting the Vikings to this point and after that win last week over the Saints - who is going to stop Case and the rest of the Vikings. As long as Case doesn't crap his pants, I think that the Vikings could very well be playing for a SuperBowl ring in their home stadium in two weeks.

My prediction:
Minneapolis 24
Philadelphia 20

The game started off like it was going to be a street fight but the Eagles ended of handling the Vikings pretty easily to punch their ticket to Suberbowl LII with a 38-7 win. I hope they left some for TB12 and the Patriots!
