This year’s NFL Playoffs have come down to the final four, better known as the Conference Championship round. Whoever wins these games will secure themselves a spot in the Super Bowl. These games will be featuring two teams from the American Football Conference (AFC), and two from the National Football Conference (NFC). The AFC is being represented by the New England Patriots who will take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Kansas City. The NFC is being represented by the New Orleans Saints who will take on the Los Angeles Rams in New Orleans. Both of these games will be played tomorrow, Sunday, January 20.

 The New England Patriots are no stranger to this stage they have played in the AFC Championship game for the past seven years in a row, this year making it to their eighth consecutive. They finished this season with a record of 11-5, securing first place in the AFC East division. They were carried here once again by their legendary tandem of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. This year they will look to add to their five championships; however, they will have a tough opponent ahead of them to even get to the game.                

 The team facing the Patriots is the Kansas City and their new high flying offense lead by the likes of Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce. Each of these players are among the best players at their position which has resulted in the best offense in the league this year. The Chiefs are looking to return to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1970. This year they have a good chance of doing so; with the Patriots’ dynasty coming to an end, the opportunity is there,  and I think that the Chiefs will take it and win the game.

 In the NFC, the New Orleans Saints are lead by their quarterback Drew Brees, along with Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas. This offense is also accompanied by a good defense featuring Marshon Lattimore and Eli Apple. The Saints are returning to the NFC Championship game for the first time since 2009, the year they won it all. With their addition of young talent combined with their trusty veteran quarterback the team is a force to be reckoned with.

 The team tasked with challenging the Saints is no pushover though. The Los Angeles Rams are an up-and-coming young football team that has the second best offense in the League. They are quarterbacked by Jared Goff, but their main weapon is running back Todd Gurley. They also have the strongest defense left in the playoffs, with players like Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh, Marcus Peters and many more. The Rams have not been around the NFC Championship game since the early 2000’s when Kurt Warner was QB1. They last won the Super Bowl in 2000. But it is going to be hard for them to get back there this year. Although the Rams are a strong team, I believe that the Saints upstart D and strong offense will be just too much to handle.

 I predict that the Kansas City Chiefs will face off against the New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, Georgia. Senior Andrew Jasperse disagrees: “I think that it will end up being the Chiefs and the Rams who will face off.” All four teams left in the playoffs are extremely good and have an equal chance of winning it all, but that is the beauty of sports.
