Championship Weekend


Will Rauss, Staff Writer

The AFC and NFC championship games are this weekend, and anything could happen. First you have arguably the two greatest quarterbacks of all time going head-to-head.

 The number 1 seed Green Bay Packers led by Aaron Rodgers, and the 5 seed Tampa Bay Buccaneers led by Tom Brady. This game looks great on paper with the Packers having the number one offense in the NFL in the Bucs having a great defense. 

On the other side of the ball the Buccaneers have multiple weapons going up against an above average Packers defense.

I believe this is going to be a catch-up game for the Buccaneers but it’ll be close at the end of the game.The Green Bay Packers offense is just too good, having their quarterback, receiver, and running back all voted to the Pro Bowl. 

Thomas Vik said, “ Aaron Rodgers is the goat, no way he loses”. Aaron Rodgers this year has looked flat-out unstoppable in every game he’s played, even though the Bucs defense is good, there is no match for Aaron Rodgers. My prediction for this game is the Packers come out on top 31-28. 


The AFC Championship Game might be even better than the NFC, The Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Buffalo Bills.

 On paper the Bills look like they have an advantage, having a top 5 offense and defense. But one thing they don’t have is a Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen is a great quarterback but in my opinion Patrick Mahomes is the best of the best. Though he is dealing with a concussion injury people are expecting him to play.

The reason this game looks so good on paper is because you have the Chiefs offense with the fastest player in the NFL in Tyreek Hill, and an overall very fast offense, against a very young and quick Bills defense.
