The NFL season is coming to an end. The season has been completely unpredictable this year. With this being said, I am going to try to predict the outcome of the NFL playoffs.
The NFL Wild Card has almost come to an end. The only game left is Rams vs. Cardinals. I believe that the Rams will win this game. Therefore, the Rams will face the Buccaneers in the second round. I predict that the Buccaneers will win this game. Tom Brady is too powerful in the playoffs to lose to the Rams. Matt Stafford is not a good enough quarterback to defeat Tom Brady in the playoffs. That is a task only Nick Foles and Eli Manning can complete.
The 49ers shocked the NFL by defeating the Cowboys in Jerry World. Kyle Shanahan almost choked another game in the playoffs. Yes, nobody forgot that he choked two Super Bowls. Can Jimmy Garopolo win a Super Bowl? In all honesty, I do not think he can. Facing Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at Lambeau Field is going to be challenging. Aaron Rodgers, in my opinion, is going to make the NFC championship once again. Yet, I do not know if Rogers has realized that there is another round after the conference championship.
Rodgers vs. Brady will be a rematch of last year’s NFC championship. Betting against Brady is risky. However, the Buccaneers have suffered various injuries throughout the season. All-Pro tackle, Tristian Wirfs went down against the Eagles. If the injury is serious, this would be a major loss for the Buccaneers. Also, the Packers will have a home-field advantage. I believe that the Buccaneers will be weak without some of their key weapons on offense. Therefore, Rodgers will lead the Packers to Super Bowl LVI.
In the AFC, I am less confident. I believe that the Bengals will upset the Titans. As the first seed in the AFC, the Titans are simply not that good. Unless Derrick Henry comes back and carries the Titans, the Bengals will win. The Chiefs will face the Bills at Arrowhead Stadium. I believe that Mahomes will lead the Chiefs to a victory. This being said, the Bengals would travel to Arrowhead Stadium for the AFC championship. The Chiefs will win this game as well, making their third Super Bowl in a row.
Super Bowl LVI is going to be an interesting game. It will be played in SoFi Stadium. SoFi is a brand new stadium built for the Los Angeles Rams. The Chiefs do not have a strong enough defense to stop Devante Adams and Rodgers. Also, the Packers have a strong backfield, consisting of Aaron Jones and A.J Dillion. In recent history, defense wins championships. The Packers have a powerful defense that will stop the Chiefs. According to my prediction, the Packers will win the Super Bowl.
