AFC North, AFC West, NFC West

2021 NFL Conference Championship Games Is Stafford Superbowl Bound?

2021 NFL Conference Championship Games Predictions and then there were four!

We are down to the final four and although no one will be too surprised at three of the inclusions even the most die-hard Bengal fan must be slightly surprised at the fact they have crashed the party. They face the pre-season favourites Kansas City in the AFC Championship game while in the NFC it is an all-West final with the “all-in” Rams looking to finally get the better of their bitter divisional rivals San Francisco 49ers.

Both ties have plenty to offer the neutral with the AFC Championship pitting two of the best young QBs in the whole of the NFL. Patrick Maholmes & Joe Burrow only have seven NFL seasons between them but already it looks like this could be the new Brady v Manning rivalry that kept us entertained for many seasons.

In the NFC we have the Rams who have thrown draft picks around like confetti in an attempt to get their hands on another Superbowl. They came close in 2018 and now with the hugely underrated Matthew Staford at QB they have their best chance since the greatest show on turf days to add to their tally. The 49ers will be stiff opposition though and they have the hoodoo over the Rams of late. They are also hitting their form at the right time.

Anyway here are our predictions.

AFC Championship Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs have home-field advantage and plenty of experience in these pressure games having been in the Super Bowl in each of the last two seasons. The Bengals have surprised everyone and they have the offensive pieces to make this awkward. They haven’t been to a Super Bowl since 1989, when they lost to potential opponents in San Francisco and after ending their playoff drought they will be full of confidence.  However, we think they have used up all their luck in getting here and expect the Chiefs to complete the appearance hat trick.

Chiefs 31 Bengals 21

NFC Championship Game San Francisco 49ers @ LA Rams

The Rams have struggled against the Niners of late and lost both regular-season games. This doesn’t bode too well historically for the Rams’ however their luck will have to change some time and we think they will be just too good for San Fran, who have relied on their defense pretty much all season.

LA Rams 27  San Francisco 20
