Kansas has an easy schedule(look to post above) so they're an almost lock to be #1 seed so someone is going to have to go to their turf and in the AFC it's going to be very hard for anyone to get a win there.

I know it's the playoffs. The pressure is on. It's a whole different atmosphere....but still. until I see it done I have Kansas in the Superbowl. I hope my Patriots can get the #2 seed and hopefully battle it out in Kansas...Let's just hope

Do not speak to me today...What a frickin nightmare. What the hell was the defense doing in that last play?

Miami got blessed by God. God granted them a miracle but New England's kicker misses unbeliveably easy shots. Brady threy a 50 yard or something pass, guy doesn't hold on to it. What the hell?

They got beat by a "Chinese Fire Drill" play at the end.

I'm still in shock that it could have even happened.

I would not want to be in that locker room, you know Belichick was losing his mind over that defensive fiasco.

He should take a week of pay off the defense and the kicker. Unbelievable. I've never seen any deffesnee so ill prepared for one single guy, last seconds of the game. It's ridiculuous.

Does this Chargers team know how to play football?


I think they're playing football of a different kind......jhhahahahhaha

if I was Belecheck I would put he reserves in the 2nd half. Why bother putting the starters out there. They can catch a cold.

Following the logic of it all and not following my fan(atism) it shoud be Kansas vs Saints.

But I hope New Engalnd can make an upset....I don't belive it very much. Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelsee..and now they're defending.

What do you think?


I think the Saints are a no brainer

This could be the year the Chiefs win the Lombardi Trophy.

I think the Saints get in too, they are hard to handle and have been all year, still the Rams could show out for one game and change that.

Same is true of the Pats they can beat the Chiefs, even in arrowhead but they will need a little luck me thinks, not impossible but the odds are against them this year.

I think it's Saints vs Chiefs and the Chiefs bring it home, time will tell.

I think Travis Kelce has been a all-star player for a long time, he just never had a QB who could get him the ball consistently before, same is true of Hill he is hands down the fastest WR in the NFL and he has good hands.

I agree. Mahomes is playing like he's he's a vet but he's revolutionizing the game. he can play inside the pocket, outise, run, make inscredible passes against the movement. I think he's already a great player.

New England has to come up with a plan to stop the pass. That's where they are killer...but stopping Mahomes mobility won't be easy.


I agree. I think if the Kansas defense holds they'll win the Superbowl. If they can protect Mahomes from being sacked he's killer

Looks like that was entirely wrong, two overtimes and two quick reversal of fortunes gives us a Rams vs Patriots Superbowl, lol.

So who wins that one folks?

They missed two rather blatantly obvious ones, that last one though was the one that cost them the game.

I generally take the same view of that as I do when the Steelers get beat under similar circumstances which happens rather often seems like.

I'm always of the opinion that if you are up by two-three scores, then a bad call can't hurt you in the last few minutes or seconds, seems to me they took the foot off the gas in the fourth when they were up going into the fourth.

Steelers do that crap all the time--trying to run out the clock and coast to a win, instead of playing for blood when they have a lead in the fourth.

They did do that, they should've been more aggressive. This was their season to go all the way, feel bad for them with those bad calls.

I didn't see the Saints game. Have no idea. But sometimes they call PI's, sometimes they don't. It's a difficult thing to see when there are so many referees. In the Patriots game almost all plays were PI's and some were called ,others not. Belecheck was pissed by a non call near the end. It's a problem.
