It’s finally time for the Conference Championships. After several disappointing years, can the Patriots finally make it back to the Super Bowl? Will they get revenge from four years ago? Will a Harbaugh be guaranteed a title? What will happen is what we are all here to predict for you.
Here at SoB (in red) and SoNY (in green), we’ve brought you our choices for how those games will turn out. It’ll be worth two points for anyone who guesses the winner of any game, one point if they can guess combined touchdown totals of the two teams to within one (or two points if they guess the total exactly right) and one point if they can guess the total passing yardage of each game’s top passer to within 50 (or two points if they get within 10).
The Patriots are the most picked team in this round, no doubt thanks to the likes of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski. Meanwhile, the Giants are the team of choice in San Francisco, where a whole lot of rain is coming down. Turnovers galore could easily be afoot due to that.
So be sure to watch the games and all of their interesting story lines. Check below for the picks, and check back later on Monday for the results.
