AFC Championship: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills
Analysis: The 1 seed vs. the 2 seed in the AFC should make for an amazing and intense matchup. Both offenses feature a young top-tier quarterback and an explosive receiver in Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Tyreek Hill, and Stefon Diggs. Both teams feature great defenses that are not to be ignored as well. As far as advantages go, Patrick Mahomes is the best QB in the NFL, but the Bills have a top five defense. Anywhere you look, this seems to be evenly matched, but my pick for this game is the Kansas City Chiefs.
Prediction: KC Chiefs 27 Buffalo Bills 20
NFC Championship: Green Bay Packers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Analysis: In this matchup of the 1 seed vs. the 5 seed, there’s more than seedings in the matchup. Two of the all-time great quarterbacks will face off to determine who goes on to the biggest stage. Aaron Rodgers might be the best thrower of football in NFL history, but Tom Brady is the most accomplished. Tom Brady has the advantage on offense with his large variety of weapons, both receivers and running backs. But Aaron Rodgers has the advantage of an amazing offensive line and powerful rushing attack. This game will go down to the wire, but my pick is the Green Bay Packers.

Super Bowl: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Green Bay Packers
Analysis: Wow, if this happens, mark it down as potentially one of the most exciting Super Bowl matchups ever. You have two elite quarterbacks who are ridiculously talented and explosive, two elite game changing receivers, ferocious running attacks, and strong defenses. This game is very evenly matched, and it will come down to turnovers and which QB outplays the other. Mahomes vs. Rodgers is crazy to think about, and it is even harder to make a decision about who will win. The one thing that the Packers have that the Chiefs do not is an elite cornerback to match up with Tyreek Hill, and for that one reason, I am going with the Green Bay Packers as my Super Bowl champions.
Prediction: KC Chiefs 27 GB Packers 33
