It’s almost that time of year again when we find out who the best team in the NFL because the super bowl will be here before we know it on February 2 down in Miami. It will be without the New England Patriots this year because they lost in the wild card round to the Tennessee Titans.
The Tennessee Titans have become the talk of this years NFL playoffs by beating the New England Patriots in the wild card round and then beating the top seeded Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round. The Tennessee Titans played the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game. The Chiefs are coming off a 24-point comeback against the Houston Texans becoming only the fourth team in NFL postseason history to overcome a 24-point deficit.
The NFC Championship game was played between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco Forty Niners. Both teams had first round byes, but looked impressive in the divisional round. The San Francisco Forty Niners beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-10 after the Vikings had defeated the New Orleans Saints in the wild card round. Green Bay is coming off a 28-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks, which was an easier win than the score may indicate. Seattle had a late comeback effort, but it was all for not. This will be the fourth championship game ever where both teams that finished below .500 like the Forty Niners and Packers did last year to make it to the championship game the next season.
Championship Sunday consisted of Tennessee Titans against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship, and the NFC Championship was the Green Bay Packers against the San Francisco Forty Niners. Both games were not that close. The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Tennessee Titans 35-24 with Patrick Mahomes II continuing his dominance over the other teams’ defenses. The Chiefs are unstoppable at the moment because they scored 51 points on divisional weekend against the Texans, putting up 35 points AFC Championship Sunday against the Titans. The San Francisco Forty Niners beat the Green Bay Packers 37-20 with the Forty Niners continuing their dominance running the ball and there amazing defense as well.
The Super Bowl has something for everyone, whether it be the advertisements within the game, the halftime show, or the game itself. This year’s Super Bowl is going to be a memorable one as it has been in recent years. The halftime show this year will consist of performances by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira. Neither artist is new to the sports stage because Jennifer Lopez sang the night before Super Bowl of 2018 while Shakira the song for the 2010 FIFA world cup, which was called “Waka Waka”.
Are you going to remember the halftime show, which has certainly had its good and bad moments recently, or are you going to remember a classic commercial by Coca Cola or Budweiser? Will there be a sensational comeback like the New England Patriots win over the Falcons a few years back, or are we going to see a last second field goal? We will have to wait and see. Enjoy the game, commercials, and half time show everyone. My prediction for the Super Bowl is that the San Francisco Forty Niners will beat the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 with the Forty Niners getting a late field goal.
