AFC Championship Game Open Thread

It's Championship Sunday in the NFL. This is really the last football Sunday of the year. The Super Bowl to me seems like it is much more built around the event than the actual game, and it is in a sterile neutral site instead of a raucous home crowd. In an increasingly rare event, the four teams playing today really are the four best teams in the league. Just like eight years ago, the games will be contested in Denver and Seattle.

The first game pits the Broncos and the Patriots. This is New England third straight AFC Championship Game. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady square off with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line for the third time.

I like the Broncos. I like them because they have more weapons than the Patriots. The Pats have done a great job getting to this point considering all they lost, but I think today it catches up to them.

JB's Playoff Prediction Record: 6-2
