2022 NFL Playoffs Conference Championship Early Predictions

AFC: 6 New England Patriots at 2 Kansas City Chiefs

Knee-Jerk Instant Analysis: The Patriots won’t have the firepower. 

The gameplan will work for close to a half. The running game will own the clock, Mac Jones will make his third down throws, and the defense will have Patrick Mahomes contained outside of one touchdown drive. Just when it seems like we have a shot at Belichick vs Brady in the Super Bowl …

Mahomes and the passing game will rally back with one home run touchdown. The momentum will shift, the Chief defense will get the stop it needs, and and Mahomes will strike again.

After all the drama, and all of the problems, and all of the inconsistencies, Kansas City will make it three Super Bowls appearances in a row.

Knee-Jerk No Research Prediction: Kansas City 26, New England 17
Early Line Guess (if this matchup happens): Kansas City -6.5


NFC: 2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 1 Green Bay Packers

Knee-Jerk Instant Analysis: Let’s do this again. Tom Brady and the Buccaneers were supposed to freeze up in Green Bay in the NFC Championship, and instead they overcame three turnovers and a big passing day from Aaron Rodgers to win 31-26 on the way to the Super Bowl.

It’ll be the same thing this time around, only the Packers will be on the right end of the fun. Brady will be great. Rodgers will be great. Rodgers will be just a wee bit better on the late game-winning drive.

Knee-Jerk No Research Prediction: Green Bay 27, Tampa Bay 24
Early Line Guess (if this matchup happens): Green Bay -2.5
