2014 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks: Conference Championships Results

Denver was firmly in control of time of possession en route to defeating arch rival New England. Now, their elite offense meets an elite defense for all the marbles. (http://simplepimple.com/)

The Super Bowl is set; the Broncos’ most potent NFL offense ever will face Seattle’s very gung-ho and powerful defense with everything on the line in New Jersey in two weeks. Each team defeated in its chief rival in order to get there, with New England and San Francisco each falling in a difficult road match-up.

Seattle and San Francisco was a defensive game for much of the time as we suspected, but the surprise was the low-scoring 26-16 final in Denver. Peyton Manning did a great job of limiting Tom Brady’s time on the field, which no doubt was a huge reason the Broncos were able to pull out the win.

In our picks, some suffered more than others, with an even mix of picks for winners. Most points were won or lost based on passing yards and touchdowns, especially in the game in Seattle, where a match-up of field goals and some touchdowns was expected.

So check below for the complete results, and come back in two weeks for the Super Bowl picks.
