Super Bowl Pick

Patriots (-4) over Eagles

No need to bury the lead.  The Eagles defense could cause the Patriots problems but with Josh McDaniels (Colts) and Matt Patricia (Lions) leaving the Belichick Nest for their own head coaching jobs after this game, there’s no doubt in my mind that both coordinators will have excellent game plans that should turn a competitive game at the half into a comfortable Patriots victory.  I’m going with a 38-18 final score and Rob Gronkowski as MVP.

Last Week: 1-1
Playoffs: 4-5-1
Season: 133-113-9

NFL Championship Game Picks

AFC Championship

The crazy rumors that Tom Brady had suffered a broken hand or torn ligaments in his hand have gifted the gamblers some bonus points for tomorrow’s AFC Championship Game.  Brady cut his thumb earlier this week in practice and is expected to be at full strength on Sunday, which is bad news for the Jaguars.  Brady and the Patriots will survive the Jaguars pass rush, shut down Leonard Fournette, and turn Blake Bortles’ dream day into a nightmare.

PATRIOTS (-7) over Jaguars

NFC Championship

The Vikings seem to be a team of destiny, winning in miraculous fashion last week against the Saints and now are just a win over the Carson Wentz-less Eagles from becoming the first team in NFL history to be able to host a Super Bowl.  However, I’m still picking the Eagles to win as a home dog.  Philly’s defense will make life miserable for the dome-spoiled Minnesota offense and Nick Foles will do just enough to get the Eagles into the Super Bowl.

EAGLES (+3) over Vikings

Last Week: 1-2-1
Playoffs: 3-4-1
Regular Season: 133-113-9
