    Titans and D Henry dismantled the Patriots last week, theyre about to finish off Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. Hope the Chiefs can finish off the Texans, Chiefs vs the Titans should be great.

    My default team, the 49ers are in the NFC title game after several years.

    Lamar Jackson will probably be voted the mvp, and that mvp curse continues. Derrick Henry has had a lot more playoff impact than anyone though, and I had never heard of him before last week.

    I think I’ll root for the Packers this time around. One more ring for Rodgers before he calls it a career.

    Haha, the Ravens are out and am not sorry to see them go. It’s the Titans who are putting on a show, no pun intended, and that dude Derrick Henry with his red running shoes is the star of these playoffs. Now who’s next?

    Just when you thought it was going to be another blowout.

    3 Touchdowns in 3 mins for the Chiefs.

    Wild. Down 24-0, then Mahomes says “I got this.”

    ESPN: Derrick Henry has defenders make business decisions

    I gotta be honest, I'm on the Mike Vrabel train right now.

    Nooooo! I feel bad for Rodgers. Other than Wilson, I never really liked the Seahawks.

    oh Mahomes!

    Rodgers made the third down throws when GB needed them. GB vs SFO for a spot in the SuperBowl. That should be a great game

    ^Green Bay will have their hands full against San Francisco. These two powerhouses have met so many times in the playoffs since ‘95 (7 times, GB 4-3) but Rodgers is 0-2 against the 49ers. Garropolo has better percentages but the odds are GB pulls ahead with Rodgers running plays. Going to expect some great NFC plays here.

    i am rooting and putting my money to Pat Mahomes and the Chiefs! i know Andy Reid often chokes in the postseason but man, their offense is just lethal and i really think Mahomes has "it" in him.

    Niners should not underestimate the Packers & Aaron Rodgers. They should have learned from their beatdown from the Niners during the regular season. The Packers also seem to be peaking at the right time.

    I don't mind Mahomes winning it all. That's one Pat, not Pats. :D :p :D

    GB's game plan will probably be spread the WRs in zone to avoid Sherman 1 on 1, neutralize Bosa by targeting the middle. And in defense, cover 1 on 1 to make Jimmy G throw low percentage passes. Yeah I think GB will win this game...

    But what do I know, it's not like I'm the expert on these things. ;)

    Both teams can put on the numbers with their soon to be HOF QB's leading their offense so its either the defense or special teams that will make the difference.

    The 49ers defense will be the key, IMO.

    If Jimmy G ends up as a HoF QB I'll be really pissed that the Patriots traded him.

    ^ A Super Bowl ring will make that happen

    As to the Patriots, everything revolves around the dynamics of Brady and his supporting players. With only one high caliber Wide Receiver to throw at, no tight end and no running game, see you next season. im surprised that they even made the playoffs!

    Well they won the AFC East so they get a playoff spot. Should the Bills have beaten them in week 16? Probably. But they didn't.

    IMO, Niners is the better team, with QBs, Rodgers is better than Jimmy G. So, it will be a great game, can't wait for Sunday!

    Part of me is rootin' for the Titans because they have 15 players on a plant-based diet, which I did for two years, went cramp-free and injury-free to earn my full Ironman badge. So kudos to the players who take the road less traveled to gain an advantage, without resorting to sign-stealing or buzzer-wearing (Astros) or ball-deflatin' :D But part of me wants to cheer on the bi-racial quarterback with a MLB-pedigreed arm.

    Then again, I have always been an NFC fan, maybe because I grew up cheerin' for an NFC team when the NFC won 15 Superbowls over a span of 16 years. So, go Niners! Because we all know that SF fans won't be gettin' a ring from the GSW. :D
