Super Predictions: 3 Things That You’re Going Definitely To See In Today’s NFL Conference Championship Games
Let’s talk Super Bowl. Two weeks from today, we’ll be warming up the wings, stocking the fridge with beer, and getting ready to watch the best game of the NFL season! But, before we do, we need to see which two teams will be taking part in the big game. So, today, the Baltimore Ravens will play the New England Patriots and the San Francisco 49ers will play the Atlanta Falcons to determine which teams will face off on Super Sunday.
Now, last week, I made some “surefire” predictions for the divisional playoff games that were, well, bad. Very, very bad! So bad that I’m not even going to link back to them here. So, in an effort to make up for them, I decided to come up with three things that you’re definitely going to see today. I can pretty much guarantee them.
Just don’t send your bookie after me tonight if you decide to use any of these predictions for, well, you know…These are, of course, for “recreational purposes” only!
1. Matt Ryan will have a big game against the 49ers—and the Falcons will either win or lose by three points or less and cover the spread.
Last week, Matt Ryan got the monkey off his back when he finally won a playoff game. And, now that he’s gotten it out of the way, I think we’ll see the Falcons QB play with a lot of confidence against the Niners. As a home underdog, the Falcons are a dangerous team. So, even though just about everyone out there is picking against them, I expect them to play big today. And, I won’t even be surprised if they pull off a win and move on to the Super Bowl in New Orleans.
2. The Ravens will not lose by more than a touchdown.
If you’ve watched the Ravens and Pats play over the course of the last month, you’re probably thinking, “WHAT?!? New England is going to blow Baltimore out!” The truth is that, while the Ravens have looked good the last couple of weeks, they struggled a lot towards the end of the regular season. But, Baltimore always plays New England tough and actually beat the Pats earlier this season. So, this game is going to come down to a field goal either way even though the Pats have the home field advantage.
3. The Harbaugh brothers will meet in the Super Bowl to end the 2012-13 season.
Jim and John Harbaugh, the head coaches of the 49ers and Ravens respectively, were thisclose to playing against one another in the Super Bowl last season. But, both came up just short and missed out on the chance to do battle in the big game. I don’t think that will be the case this year, though. As of this moment, they have the two hottest teams in the NFL. And, somehow, some way, I think they’ll both find a way to pull out their games today and make it to the Super Bowl. We can’t to see which one of them wins it…
