The NFL Playoffs kicked off into high gear over the weekend. Suga was 3/3 with predictions and left the Steelers-Chiefs game to go either way.
The Patriots destroyed the Texans 34-16 as expected.
The Falcons defeated a depleted Seahawks team 36-20.
The Steelers upset the Chiefs with a close game ending 18-16.
The game of the weekend undoubtedly went to the Packers and the Cowboys!
The Packers led the entire game building up to a 15-point lead to start the 4th that stretched to an 18-point lead. Cowboys star QB Tony Romo has been out with a back injury, leaving rookie QB Dak Prescott to step up his game. That he did. He was impressive, increasing the pace and helped his team get right back into the game erasing an 18-point deficit. I think his biggest moment was taking matters into his own hands and running the ball to a touchdown.
The game was tied 31-31 with 35s left! But the ball was in the Hail Mary King’s hands, Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers. He didn’t throw a Hail Mary this time but you can never count him out. He created a clutch opportunity throwing the ball 35 yards for a reception by Jared Cook who was sliding out of bounds, ultimately putting them in Field Goal range.
Packers’ experienced Kicker, Mason Crosby was faced with the pressure of kicking a 51-yard FG. The Cowboys called a time out as he kicked it successfully so it did not count and he had to retake the kick. The wait was nail-biting, but Crosby did it! He kicked the game winning 51-yard FG and helped send his team to the NFC Championships upsetting the #1 seed NFC Cowboys team.
The AFC and NFC Championships will be Sunday, February 22. Patriots vs. Steelers and Packers vs. Falcons.
