AFC and NFC Championship Preview


David Facaros

As the NFL season winds down, the three most important games are still left to be played. Almost everyone can agree that the four most talented teams in the league are playing on Sunday to get a spot in the Super Bowl.

The first match-up on Sunday is between the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams. Earlier this season the two teams played each other in New Orleans and the Saints won 45-35. Throughout the season, these two teams had the most talented rosters in the NFC.  Since the Rams loss, they have added a back up running back CJ Anderson which helped them down the stretch. Last week, the Saints came back from a 14 point deficit to beat the Eagles to advance while the Rams played the Cowboys and won by a score of 30-22.

The second match-up on Sunday features the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Cheifs. These two teams also played each other earlier in the regular season and the Patriots came up on top 43-40. This year the Chiefs are much improved compared to last because of the quarterback change. In Patrick Mahomes first full season he has set many different records and has thrown for over 50 touchdowns. Senior Adam Hascher said, “He has easily been the most impressive quarterback this season”.

You can make an argument for any of the teams that are left standing on Sunday and these last three games should be the best of the year.
