Time to get this thread started! First up is the Los Angeles Rams at the New Orleans Saints for the NFC Championship and then the New England Patriots at the Kansas City Chiefs for the AFC Championship. Both 1 and 2 seeds from each conference are represented, so I guess this is the way it should work out. Of note, 7/8 of the starting QB's in this game are white! I like the Saints in the first game, only because without Cooper Kupp, the Rams are just another caste team. Besides, I really like to watch the Saints when they have Taysom Hill on the field. In the nightcap, I would rather see the Chiefs win, just because I'm a homer, just like all of the Dolphins and Bills posters on this site would root for theirs, and like the head honcho who is always rooting for his beloved Steelers! The Chiefs jettisoned the worthless safety Ron Parker this week and re-activated right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif from IR. He's not sure how many snaps he's up to playing, but with him in the lineup in place of the "weak link" Cameron Erving, the Chiefs will feature a snowplow. Also Gehrig Dieter has received lots of first-string snaps in practice this week. Maybe they listened to me and might have him play in place of Chris "stone hands" Conley in the slot. Since the game is to be played in frozen-tundra arctic conditions, with game time temps forecast in the mid-teens, I expect the Patriots to win. They are a seasoned cold-weather team and just flat-out play better in these conditions than any other team. Brady is probably the best cold weather QB in the NFL. Should be fun!
