Regular season records were vital initially; however, there had been changes later on. In 1970, there were eight teams for NFL Playoffs as American Football League was merged.

The NFL playoffs will conclude with American Football Conference (AFC) champion vs National Football Conference (NFC) champion is called super bowl, on February 3, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. Get the latest nfl playoff picture, news, schedule, bracket, prediction, odds and more.

Current playoff system

There are two conferences, National Football Conference,which is abbreviated as NFC and American Football Conference, which is abbreviated as AFC, which divides the 32 teams of National Football League.Each of the conference consists of 16 teams. However, there is a further division of the teams since 2002. Four teams have four divisions. There are six teams, which make the tournament bracket and these would be from the two conferences. Teams, which are 1 to 4 seeded, are based on won-lost-tied record and there is wild card entry for two teams, which are seeded from 5 to 6 and here is a team from each conference. The postseason format dates back to 1978.Wildcard playoffs are the very first round of the playoffs. In this particular round, the third-seeded division winner has the responsibility of holding the wild card for the sixth seed. Similarly, the fifth is held by the fourth-seeded division winner. In any round, teams from the same division can match up as there are no restrictions as such.

When there is a tie in winning conflicts NFL has a system in order to resolve these conflicts. Since 1984 there was the same home stadium,which was shared by New York Jets and New York Giants. Therefore, when teams have the need to host the game during weekends, they have to make a selection of separate days. There was a conflict only once in 1985 during the wild card weekend. NFL playoffs format is quite interesting as it assists in understanding the rules of the game as well. The schedule for NFL playoff shows that super bowl would be on Feb 3 in 2018-19, it would be on Feb 2 in 2019-2020, and it would be on Feb 7 in 2020-2021. However, in 2017-2018 it wagon Feb 4.

Breaking Ties

Identical records are possible for the teams as well. Thus,there is a need to break off the ties, which is important to get an idea on which team would be able to qualify for the final playoffs. Rules are applied until a tie is broken and these rules are in an order. These rules are also important for the determination of seeding for the playoff tournament. If there are three teams, which have a tie for one particular spot and third team is eliminated at any step then for the remaining two teams, which are now left tiebreaker would revert to the very first step. In the same way, if there are multiple playoff spots, rules would be applied in an order until very first team qualifies and then for the remaining teams the process would start again.There are changes in rules over years with the most recent change in 2002.

Overtime rules

Overtime rules were introduced by NFL in 1940 for the divisional tie-break games and in 1946 for the championship games. When the scores are same, overtime is applied in order to avoid a draw. 1958 NFL Championship Game was the very first postseason game, which was played under these rules. Sudden death was part of the original format hence, the very first team scoring ahead would be the winner. There was an amendment in the rules in 2010 and then the rules were extended to 2012 into a regular season. Since postseasons game cannot end in a tie these are played until there is a declared winner.

Playoff and championship history

Playoff and championship history is quite interesting and over the years there has been a change in determining the champions by NFL. It was quite different in the early years. The scheduled championship game was not common in the early years (from 1920 to 1932). Team owners would vote at annual owners’ meeting to award the championship to a team from 1920-1923. A team with best winning percentage was awarded ownership from 1924 to 1932. It was difficult to count the number of wins or the losses because there were a different number of games played by the team. Keeping in view the modern rules,a tie is counted as a ½ win or ½ loss but there was a time when tie games were not counted to find the winning percentages in standings. The head-to-head tiebreaker was also a criterion. There was an identical winning percentage of 0.857 in 1932 at a game between Portsmouth Spartans and Chicago Bears. The winning percentage for Green Bay Parkers was 0.769, which was lower in comparison despite the fact that they had more wins.

Thus, there was a need to find the champion. At Wrigley Field, a game was to be played in Chicago; however, there were harsh weather conditions due to which it was moved indoors at the Chicago Stadium. The final score for the Bears was 9-0 and modified rules were followed for the game. The dirt field was shortened 80-yards.

The Bears eventually got the winning title. Spartans were able to grab a winning percentage of 0.750, which assisted in moving Spartans to third place. They were behind Packers.

This game cannot be categorized as a playoff game or a championship game; however, it played a huge role in laying the foundation for NFL Championship game in the year 1933. Therefore, 1932 playoff game was quite interesting, which sparked the interest for NFL Championship game.

Before the Super Bowl

At the beginning of 1933, the league was divided into two conferences. The teams, which were at the first place in the conference were the winners for each of the conference and after the season they met in NFL Championship Game.

There was no system of tie-breaker in beginning and even the venue of the game used to be unknown sometimes until very last game of the season has been played. There would be a delay of one week as a result of the playoff games. From 1933 to 1966, the play structure, which was in use at that time was considered inequitable. The main reason for considering it inequitable was that there were a number of times when it failed to match the two best records for the teams, which were playing for the championship game.

There was an expansion to 16 teams for the 1967 NFL Season.There was a split in the two conferences as well. There were two divisions and each division consisted of four teams.

Playoff Bowl was a playoff game, which was the third place and played in Miami during the 1960s. The first season was in 1967 and there was scheduled playoff tournament, which would assist in determining the team that would play for NFL Championship.

AFL and AAFC playoffs

There was a time when the format for AFL was quite similar to NFL in order to determine the championship that is, it was the two-divisional format. This particular format was used by the American Football League in order to determine the champion and eventually AFL merged with NFL.It is important to understand history to get a basic idea. It was for the seasons of 1960-1968. However, there was no tie-breaker system. In 1969’s season there was an addition of first round and winners would meet at AFL Championship Game. Super Bowl IV was won by the Chiefs and in fact, they were the very first winner of the non-division and were able to win the Super Bowl. AAFC used the playoff format, which was identical to NFL from 1946 to 1948. For the season of 1950, AAFC merged into NFL. A four-team playoff system was used by AAFC in 1949. The first nine seasons of American Football League were from 1960 to 1968 and from the winner of two divisions, it would determine the winner of the championship through a single playoff. There was a playoff inequity after mentioned issue raised in 1948. Knowing the relevant history in detail is quite important to understand the basics.

Super Bowl and merger

Lamar Hunt who is the owner of Kansas City Chiefs is the first person to propose the idea where there was the game between AFL and NFL of the inter-league championship and hence, the foundation for the Super Bowl was laid. There was the full merger between two leagues. The champions of AFL and NFL were featured in games from the season of 1966 to the season of 1969.Champions of American Football Conference and National Football Conference had been featured in the season of 1970 and on wards. The merger of the leagues in 1970 resulted in new NFL, which consisted of 26 teams and there were three divisions of two conferences, which were reorganized. Eight teams were able to qualify for the playoff each year. Out of which there were four teams from each of the conference and from the season of 1970 to the season of 1977. There was a wild-card team ranking fourth and four teams, which were included in the three division champions. There were playoff inequalities because of the rotation system for example, in the year 1971, 1972, and 1973. Until 1975 seeding system for the playoffs was not introduced. The pairing of divisional playoff round could be 2 seed vs. 4 seed and 1 seed vs. 3 seed.

Expansion

In the season of 1978, there was an expansion from 14 games to 16 games in the regular season. For each of the conference, there was a team with one more wild card. Two of the wild card teams had to play a week before the division winners. The very first wild-card team, which was able to win Super Bowl under the system was Oakland Raiders. There were nine regular season games played in 1982 season. Usually, the games are played on Sunday except for 1983 and 1988 as the games were played on Saturday and Monday. The main reason was Christmas as it was on Sunday and thus, NFL had to be avoided playing at that time. Pacific Time Zone was followed for the games in 1984. Wild-card games were hosted by Jets and New York Giants. They share a stadium and thus,games had to be on different days. There was an addition of a third wild card team in the season of 1990. Prime time became common for the games for the very first time in the season of 2001. Thus, there was no longer a restriction for the Pacific Time Zone for the league to follow.

Modification proposals

The playoff system, which currently consists of 12 teams has some limitations. Under some of the cases, there is a team, which has a weak division or barely winning record of 0.500. There is some prominent examples season of 2008-2009, the season of 2010-2011, and season of 2014-2015. Seeding issue caused the reason for modification of the playoff format. There was a proposal based on the idea that there should be an expansion to 14 teams.Additional playoff games though were two means that there would be an increased income as a result of the two additional games. When the league had 28 teams there had been a playoff system comprising of 12-team. It is interesting to get an idea about modification proposals.

There were two teams with wild cars in the playoffs of 2007,which had comparatively better records. Roger Goodell in 2013 revisited the idea that there should be an expansion to 14 teams, which led to revisiting this particular idea. Initially there was a suggestion to schedule the games on weekend; however, later it was suggested by Roger Goodell that Friday and Monday would be better; however, there had been a conflict with College Football Playoff. There had been suggestions many times for considering the expansion to 14 teams; however, there is not yet any serious decision and the matter is likely to be postponed by 2020. In February 2015, according to the Washington Post, there had been an erosion of support among owners of the team. There was reluctance on part of leaders to implement any change. There is no more interest in the proposal and it is not raised. Expiration of the collective argument bargaining would assist in determining the decision in the future. It would be interesting to see what happens in the future whether there would beany change or not.

NFL Playoff

Like many major leagues sports such as the NHL, NBA and MLB, the NFL has a tournament at the end of the regular season called the playoffs which will ultimately determine the winning team of the year (Superbowl champ) who will be granted a large trophy and bragging rights. However, the NFL is the only major league sport (out of the other three) that’s playoffs are single-elimination in all four rounds unlike the NHL, NBA and MLB who follow a “best-of” format instead.

Moving forward, there are many NFL playoff rules pertaining in the league. First and foremost, only 12 teams out of 32 (which is divided by 2 conference divisions) are allowed to be qualified for the playoffs with 6 (4 division champions from each conference and 2 wild-card qualifiers) from each of the NFL’s 2 conferences.

Secondly, if for some reason or by luck of chance there is 2 teams that have the same regular season record and there is only 1 spot for 1 team to advance to the playoffs then there are tie-breaking procedures that will take place such as detailed looks into both teams record versus common opponents and other criteria that will judge one team’s performance over the other.

Furthermore, if all else fails, there will be a coin toss up to decide who qualifies for the playoffs. Third and lastly, there are also rules that govern how overtime works in the NFL playoffs such as that any playoff games cannot end in a tie therefore additional overtime periods will be played until a winner is determined, either through a touchdown or a safety on first possession.

In conclusion, there are many rules that are strictly enforced in the NFL playoffs in order to ensure that the team most worth of winning is granted the title of Superbowl champion. Furthermore, without these rules, the NFL playoffs would be undeniably very unorganized and chaotic.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the NFL’s international initiatives once again, and we are excited to face the Rams at historic Estadio Azteca this fall,” Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in January’s statement. “The support for the NFL in Mexico has grown significantly since our initial trip in 1996. We look forward to returning to Mexico and connecting with a new generation of fans this season.”

The announcement comes after last week’s unveiling of the 2018 preseason schedule.

NFL Draft

National Football League Draft

The NFL draft is also known as the Player Selection Meeting is an event held once every year allowing all NFL teams a chance to sign successful college football players. This method of recruitment is the most common way of recruiting players. The position a team finished in the last season determines a draft position in reverse order. The NFL team that was last in the season standings gets first to pick. This rule is the part where things get interesting as a team can either select a player, trade the position to other teams in return for different picks in the draft, a player(s), or any possible combinations of the same. An NFL draft process is said to be complete once all teams have traded a draft position or selected a player. This process has changed since 1936, and the current process has seven rounds. The beauty of this draft is that the team that performed poorly signs the top player and balances competition between teams. Today, the popularity of the draft is such a level that it’s even aired live on mainstream media. Taking a stroll down memory lane, this was usually not the norm. In the 1930s players were drafted into professional football via print media, rudimentary evidence, and hearsay. The process progressed in the 1940s when the concept of scouts was adopted. The early drafts order salary negotiations did not follow any set rules and players wanted to sign with the highest paying team. Kenny Washington was the first African-American player to play in the NFL through the draft pick process. The NFL constitution adopted the existing rules and in 1942, “Bullet Bill” Dudley became the first player to picked first overall.

NFL Draft

Scouting Era Begins (1946-1959)

Dan Reeves of the Los Angeles Rams signed Eddie Kotal as the first signed player scout. There existed two football leagues, the NFL and AAFC and it was complicating the draft process. The competing leagues resulted in the creation of a bonus pick. Draft picks as at that time had an option of signing with either NFL or AAFC. The 1949 NFL draft thirteenth round saw the first African-American, George Taliaferro decide to pass on a chance to play for NFL and sign with an AAFC team. The nineteenth round pick, Wall Triplett became the first African-American to be selected in an NFL draft and proceed to sign for a professional NFL team. From the introductory statement, it’s clear that the NFL draft process is not the only way a player gets signed to a professional NFL team. Before the start of the 1949 NFL draft season, Paul “Tank” Younger became the first free agent to be signed from a historically black college. Coach Grambling of the LA Rams made it clear Paul that his performance would directly affect how black colleges’ players would get drafted in the league.

Technology (1960-1979)

The 1960 National Football League draft held in Philadelphia was very competitive affair because of the imminent arrival of the American Football League (AFL). The draft saw half of the players drafted in the first round and other many players sign with the new AFL. “Mr. Irrelevant” was a term coined in 1976 by Paul Salata referring to players selected last in the draft.

Current Format

All players drafted to the NFL have played college football though the rules don’t make this a mandatory NFL rule. Most of these colleges are in the USA and occasionally Canadian Universities. Rules also permit players who have since left high school up to 3 years to qualify for the NFL draft. Sometimes it happens that players who play in Canadian football League, German Football League, and Arena Football League are also included in the NFL draft if they possess the required abilities. Players who show exceptional skill and abilities even from other sports can get drafted to the NFL. Since the rules state that, a player must have stayed for three years after leaving high school, they do not explicitly specify what a player should do within that tenure. A player who was completed red-shirt sophomore year within the three years improves a player’s eligibility.

Rules for determining draft order

A team reaching the playoff and its win-loss record in the previous season determine the selection order of the draft. A reverse order applies to teams that didn’t make the playoffs based on their win-loss record. The team with the lowest wins gets the first pick. It’s possible that teams achieve identical records after the season is over. Therefore, the below rules apply in the order stated to break the tie.

  1. The strength of the schedule. It refers to the all sixteen opponents combined win and loss in the previous season. The team’s opponents with fewer wins also known as a lower strength of schedule get the earlier draft position in the first round.
  2. The teams record against opponents from the same division in common games.

III. The teams record against opponents from the same conference in common games.

  1. The final rule that happens at the pre-draft NFL Combine is a coin flip(s).

For teams that were in the playoff in the previous seasons, the determination of the draft order is in the order they were eliminated. Early eliminated teams get the first pick, and in case of a tiebreaker, the above rules apply in that order. That means the super bowl champion gets the last pick.

These above rules apply in each subsequent round. There is an exception to this flow for teams with ties. Among the teams with ties, the order alternates in each round to ensure fairness, e.g., if three teams have a tie, the team that get’s priority in the first round comes last in the second round and alternate till the rounds are over like it happened in 2014. The exception to the above rule occurs when ‘expansion teams’ are included. Expansion teams qualify for the first selection. If they are two, a coin toss decides, but if they are three or more, a drawing of lots is the deciding factor. The loser of the coin toss and the winner of the drawing of lots are awarded the first selection. Quarterback draft picks are paid higher salaries compared to other field positions and the player who is the first pick gets the richest contract while other rounds salary figures are determined by previous year picks. The 2010 draft was the longest as it happened over a period of three days.

Timing

Timing is an exciting, fun activity in the National Football League draft process. Each team has representatives in the draft and time taken to make a decision is a key determiner. In round one, a team has ten minutes to choose who to sign, round two a team has 7 minutes, and in round three a team is granted five minutes. What this means is that if your teams allocated time expires before making a decision, the next team that was to pick may select a player that was being considered by the representatives of the earlier team. The team that delayed can still submit their pick but has to be available on the list assuming the player has not been ‘stolen’ already. Some of the reason the above scenario can happen is a delay in negotiating a trade. 2003 and 2011 saw Minnesota Vikings, and Baltimore Ravens fail to submit their selections respectively within their allocated time.

Pick Trades

The NFL rules permit teams to negotiate for the right to select an additional player in a specific round before and during the draft. For example, a team interested in a particular player in a trading period may offer draft picks in future drafts. It’s also possible for teams to forego a right to pick in a specific round so that they have an additional pick in a later round. It renders a team to have no pick in a specific round or multiple picks in particular rounds.

Compensatory Picks

32 compensatory picks qualify to be selected by teams that gained or lost players in free agency in addition to the 32 selections for each of the seven rounds. ‘Unrestricted free agents’ known as compensatory free agents (CFA) are defined thanks to a proprietary formula. A team that has lost CFAs who were better than what they had signed the previous year have picks between third and seventh round. If the value of CFAs lost is higher than that gained a team is awarded picks in the seventh round. Note that compensatory picks are not in tandem with the draft process but three or four weeks before the draft. Compensatory pick process is done every year at the NFL’s annual meeting. Compensatory picks of the 2017 National Football League draft are now tradable. A proprietary formula determines the placement pick based on factors such as postseason honors, a player’s salary and playing time. Supplementary compensatory selections now are awarded in the eighth round after the compensatory picks. In 2016 there were 33 compensatory picks, one more than the standard 32 compensatory picks.

The teams themselves determine the team policies. One can find different selection methodologies between teams. Participating representatives may or may not include coaches, owners, and general managers. Team politics on who in the team has the final say are on full display at this stage. Art Rooney Junior had ‘the final say’ even over his father over picks in 1983 NFL draft for Pittsburgh Steelers as described by the team coach. The same year, Tony Eason was signed as a quarterback by the New England Patriots in the first round by team owner a decision which the team coach disagreed. The then patriot’s coach even claims that coaching staff was prohibited from reading scouting reports.

NFL Draft Advisory Board Decisions

The board is composed of team executives and scouting experts. The mandate of this Board is to make predictions of which round a player can be drafted. The college football players who wish to enter NFL but are still eligible to play have the opportunity to seek an expert opinion from this Board. The view provided by this Board is usually reasonably accurate, and college players can be able to see their rankings. If the classification feedback shows a college player can qualify for the draft, the player concerned can either continue playing in college or enter the draft. The Board can also serve as an opportunity to get close to the top scouting experts who can give a player exposure if his talents are immense.

The NFL draft process has been fine-tuned over the years, making it the most popular NFL recruiting platform. A player who wishes to attain his dream of playing in the NFL should put in the effort and get acquitted with the draft process. The 2018 NFL draft shall take place at the AT&T stadium from April 26 to April 28 and shall be the 83rd annual meeting. Now is a fascinating period for the football fans, scouts and analysts to come up with their mock drafts and predictions in preparation for the big day.

It can’t get more fun than what the NFL offers. It’s the only sport in the world (relatively speaking) thanks to its structure, provides every team a chance to win the coveted Super Bowl. I believe other global sports can borrow a leaf from the NFL way of doing things, England football league, yes I mean you England. Every season there are diverse stories that get fans attached. The 2017/18 that just ended most gripping tale was the underdog tag given to a particular team in Philly a topic we won’t dwell into today. Nevertheless, all these stories of our beloved NFL stars start with the draft. Thanks to growth in digital media, we are witnessing selection picks that even before being drafted are so popular and polarizing; If I go off topic, a good example being the 2017 NBA draft 2nd draft pick. Staying on topic, below is a write up about the National Football League draft.

When is the Super Bowl 2018? Early Preview for Patriots vs Eagles Game

The National football championship game for the National Football League (NFL) this year named Super Bowl LII is around the corner, take place in February 4, 2018 at U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States. The American football final game is called by Super Bowl is the most popular sports event in the Planet. The Philadelphia Eagles are the best team from the National football conference will battle for the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the national title game against the American football conference champion the New England Patriots on Super Bowl Sunday.

All is set for the super bowl LII rematch after a long time in Super Bowl final since 2004 between the two teams, featuring the New England Patriots vs the Philadelphia Eagles which will take place early February. The contest is bringing together two teams with entirely different background history; the matchup is featuring defending champion and a club making its first appearance in the super bowl playoffs since 2013. The Patriots are not new to Super Bowl LII playoffs as they have been in this big matches eight times since 2001, meanwhile, the Eagles have not been able to reach this far since 2004. Both teams met in super bowl XXXIX where the Patriots won narrowly by 24-21, and now the Eagles are coming into this game for a revenge mission and prove a point.

Main things to know about the Super Bowl 2018 playoff

This football game will mean a lot for both teams; the Patriots are made the third Super bowl playoff in four years and are their primary focus is to defend their championship against the Eagles. This match will also be a high stake for the Eagles who have had a very successful season making ten comebacks which can be a motivating factor in this game despite being their first playoff since 2013. The big question is will the experience of patriots help them to bag another super bowl title? Or will the Eagles silent the defending champions?

Super Bowl 2018 start time

The pressure is too high for both teams; in super bowl playoffs, every team has its pressure from the fans and the coach as well. Patriots are now under pressure to defend their championship while Eagles are hoping to end their title dry spell. The expectations are high on each side expecting to carry the day; patriots are confidence due to the experience they have for big matches. Eagles are betting on their excellent performance this season to keep their spirit high ahead of the game.

Who will carry the day? The super bowl LII playoff match that everyone is waiting with a lot of expectations with everybody hoping the best for their favorite teams. The fact is patriots have more experience in big names since it’s their ninth time to appear in super bowl playoff and they are the defending champion. Eagles it’s their first time to appear in the playoffs since 2013, and they have been in good form this season which can help them silence their Patriots. The showdown will bring together Patriots with a lot of experience in big games and Eagles which can be said to have less experience in playing super bowl playoffs. Super bowl playoffs can be tricky to predict since teams are in good form but patriots may have high chances of carrying the day due to their experience in playing on big platforms. However, Eagles may surprise many considering their form and the games they have come back to win.

There is a lot to expect from patriots in this match considering their best player Tom Brandy who is currently leading NFL with 2, 208 yards, 15 touchdown passes and only two interceptions with a rating of 108.4. Brady has been a critical player in the last Super Bowl 2018, and coming event may not be exceptional. The one of the main difference between the Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles is the Patriots are better coached by Bill Belichick than the Eagles’ Doug Pederson. Eagles this season shows a lot of improvement and has the best defense and offense which can trouble patriots.

AFC Championship Game: Patriots vs Jaguars Playoff, Odds, Picks

The AFC Championship game is one of the most anticipated games of the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE (NFL), which is the United States’ largest professional football league. This Championship Game is one of the two semi-final playoff games of the NFL, which many sports fans look forward to watching. It’s played on the second last or penultimate Sunday of January to determine the champion of the AMERICAN FOOTBALL CONFERENCE (AFC). The resulting winner will then proceed to play the winner of the NATIONAL FOOTBALL CONFERENCE (NFC) championship game, that’s in the Super Bowl.

It was established in 1970 as part of the merger between the AMERICAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE (AFL) and the NFL, with the resulting merged league being realigned into two conferences. Remember that since 1984, the AFC Championship Game winner has also been the receiver of the Lamar Hunt Trophy. The trophy is named after the AFL’s founder who was also the Kansas City Chiefs longtime leader, Lamar Hunt. This award is among the prestigious that any team can look forward to receiving, meaning there is lots of competition.

Following the 1970 regular season, the first game was played. That’s after the merger between the (AMERICAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE) and NFL. Many sports fans and players consider it the previous AFL Championship successor. The results of the game are listed together in the Fact Book and yearly NFL record. Because the pre-merger NFL has six teams, the realignment was required at one of the conditions for the merger. The result was two conferences, which have similar numbers of teams. The NFL’s Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Colts and the Pittsburgh Steelers teamed up with the ten formerly AFL TEAMS TO come up with the AFC. The other 13 PRE-MERGER NFL teams went on to form the NFL.

When it came to the interceptions, they were ranked second with 21. These games were especially appealing to the Jaguars fans, who cheered their team as it made its way to the AFC championship game. In the NFL table, they came second with 55 sacks and second when points allowed. It was a fantastic run for them, which was one thing that made their players and fans overjoyed.

One thing that was a shock in Pittsburgh was the Jaguars toppling the Steelers. It was one of the most talked happenings, which was great with the Jaguars. Remember that during the mid-season, there was a discussion by Mike Tomlin, in which he said that he expected to see the Patriots playing the AFC title game. Le’Veon Bell, the running quarterback, during the weekend, echoed these sentiments. Another player who went as far as guaranteeing a win over the Patriots is safety Mike Mitchell. However, it won’t be possible, seeing that a rematch will never happen.

The Jaguars outplayed the favored Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday and deserved to win. However, Pittsburgh also shot itself in the foot numerous times with questionable offensive play calls.

Instead, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Blake Bortles will be the ones looking to make their way to the Super Bowl LII, the home of the 21st century’s most successful franchise.

NFC Championship Game: Eagles vs Vikings playoff scenarios

There is something special about an amazing football game. The atmosphere is like no other and you seem to remember every dramatically filled moment that leads to victory. When you watch the NFC Championship football game, it will certainly be no different. But are these two teams worthy of being in the NFC Championship game? Well, it is obvious that they made it, but how did they get this far and what will they do from this point on? Both teams have something special that can take them to the finish line of victory. As we begin to look at the special teams, offense, defense, secondary for each team, we begin to get a vivid picture about the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles.

The winner of the National Football Conference (NFC) will qualify to play the winner from the American Football Conference (AFC) in an all out battle for the Super bowl title. Both teams finished with a strong 13 wins and 3 loss records. The Minnesota Vikings come into the conference with a 3 game winning streak while the Philadelphia Eagles offer a 1 game losing streak. This allows the pendulum to point for the Minnesota Vikings to have perhaps a bit more confidence going into the game. However the Minnesota Vikings will have to go into the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and beat the Eagles on their home turf. This has never been easy, particularly in a game of this magnitude. Stress plays a large part in how these two teams will match up. Also, experience is essential as the teams seek to understand each other’s playbook. The victory will be a glaring result of who wants it more. The victory will be a glaring result on which team plays better together as one. And the victory will be a glaring result on how well both teams are coached.

HOW THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS MADE THE NFC CHAMPIONSHIP

Let’s first take a look at the Minnesota Vikings and how they were able to make it to the NFC Championship. As with any team, it has to start with the coaching staff. Mike Zimmer is the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings. He has been the defensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons, Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys. With so much experience, the Vikings should have a decent defense.

And they indeed do. With Zimmer’s experience he has managed to have a dominant defense this year. Along with that, commentaries have been made about the greatness of the Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum. When all seemed lost, Keenum led the Vikings onto an impenetrable comeback to have victory over the latter course of the year. Keenum has been a dominant force with his weapons, Stephon Diggs as wide receiver and Adam Thielen, the other wide receiver. Look for Keenum to go long and hard with these two talented receivers for long yardage. And let’s not forget the great Latavius Murray who has something to say about the Minnesota Vikings running game in the backfield. The Minnesota Vikings secondary has done well in protecting Keenum for most games and the special teams are also good. All in all the Vikings pack a powerful punch and they will need every bit of it as they look to defeat the Eagles on their home turf.

HOW THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES MADE THE NFC CHAMPIONSHIP

The Philadelphia Eagles should indeed be worried about the Minnesota Vikings defense, but they also have some special players which helped them get to the NFC Championship. The Philadelphia Eagles head coach is Doug Pederson who served as offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs. He has also played quarterback as well. The Eagles may not be as lucky with their quarterback position in Nick Foles. While Foles does have experience in games, he can also become easily confused when confronted with difficult situations. Foles is also a backup quarterback to Carson Wentz who went down early in the season. He also has not been the dominant force that Keenum has been consistently throughout the year. The Eagles also have Alshon Jeffery and Agholor who are young receivers. They do have the experienced Legarrette Blount who some question if he still has it. The Philadelphia Eagles defense certainly stepped it up over their win against Atlanta, knowing the weapons that they had. They rose to the challenge like champions do.

NFC Championship Game Live Stream

The special teams will play an integral role for both teams as they will need to get field advantage for each play down the field. Depending upon who can pull it all together, is the taking for the victory spoils. The Philadelphia Eagles will have home advantage giving them the confidence of having the crowd behind them. But if Case Keenum can put all of the high energy to the side, play with his weapons as he has done all year, then the Minnesota Vikings have a great chance of taking home the NFC Championship George Halas trophy. Either way, it should be a stunner until the end. Both quarterbacks will have to bring their best. The offensive lines will have to provide adequate protection to give both quarterbacks time to run their plays. And the running backs and wide receivers will need to have an elite style of play. The defense will have to bring a special quality to the game as well. Look for this one to be like a Superbowl within itself.

Patriots offense vs Jaguars defense

“I knew he wasn’t going to run by me, so I was trying to bait him,” Bouye said. “Tom (Brady) will know if I am doing that. I just have to play tighter coverage (if he’s on Gronk).”

“Absolutely,” Brady said when asked if he would have to be at the top of his game to beat the Jaguars. “It’s the best team we’ve faced all year. They’re here for a reason. They’re a top-ranked defense in the league and have great players at all levels. They’re really well-coached and score a lot of points, so we’re going to have to play really well.”

“Hope they do not throw him the football,” Jaguars coach Doug Marrone joked this week. “Hope he drops it. There is no secret formula. I’d like to watch a game where someone has been able to do it. He’s going to make his plays, and you hope those plays don’t end up killing you.”

Patriots defense vs Jaguars offense

“We’re going to continue to get ready for Jacksonville all the way through,” coach Bill Belichick said, if Brady misses any of Sunday’s game before declining to offer any specifics on Brady’s status.

“Brian does a great job for us,” Belichick said of Hoyer. “Works hard, practices hard. He does a great job for us.”

AFC Championship Prediction: Jaguars 25 Patriots 27.

Tom Brady’s Injury – What happened to Tom Brady’s hand?

Patriots fans are very concerned that Tom Braby in not practicing on Thursday for his hand injury. The Patriots vs Jaguars AFC Championship game on Sunday at 3:05 p.m. ET got plenty of consternation.

What happened to Tom Brady’s hand?

X-rays of Brady’s hand revealed no structural damage, per Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald, and a source told Mike Reiss of ESPN that Brady’s hand “should be OK.” Still, the Patriots aren’t saying anything beyond the fact that it’s a hand injury, giving no specifics about which finger(s), the various bones in there or anything else.

“I remember (Buffalo Bills running back) LeSean McCoy said he had a high ankle sprain and came out there cutting and stuff,” Jackson said. “So I’m gonna get ready for his best and make sure that we’re all out there to get Tom Brady’s best.”

“We were taking pretty steady action on Jacksonville so we pulled it and adjusted down to -7. We fully expect Brady to play, but if he’s really banged up the offensive gameplan could be altered,” BookMaker.eu spokesman Scott Cooley told CBSSports.com. “And if somehow he doesn’t play, it’s going to be mayhem. At this stage of the season and considering the opponent, Brady is worth 7-8 points to the spread. If this is a ho-hum regular season game, we’re looking at 5-6 points.”

NFL Playoff Picture: What we learned from the Divisional round 2018

It’s amazing to watch the Patriots are going to the AFC Championship for the seventh straight year and to see sixth times Super Bowl champion.

The Vikings need to win next matchup against the underdog Eagles after a long time and have a great opportunity to earned Super Bowl from home field advantage for the first time in NFL history. And once again, the New England’s are one win away vs the Jaguars in the next weekend from reaching the Super Bowl.

nfl playoff picture

Responding to Marcus Mariota’s perfectly orchestrated 95-yard scoring drive late in the first quarter, the Patriots took control of the game with a quick-strike offense that exhausted the Titans’ defensive line while generating a trio of second-quarter touchdowns.

It is said that Tom Brady the best QB of all time and Bill Belichick is the best coach of all time, and looks like the Patriots play more like a team than any of the other 31 NFL teams, which is why they win so many super bowls. It’s fun to watch an intelligent, sharply focused and disciplined team.

You will be excited that 3 of the 4 teams have never won the Super bowl. Only Patriots win the super bowl five timesand looking for the six this year. Our prediction is Super bowl will be played by Patriots vs Vikings. It seems all 4 home teams are favorites, but by the law of averages, there will be one, maybe two upsets. All 4 games will be played in COLD weather cities, and two in Pennsylvania.

 

 

The Jaguars make a history after beat the Steelers in NFL Playoff by 45 – 42

The Jacksonville Jaguars clinched the AFC Championship game and will play against the Patriots in next weekend as an underdog again after beat the Steelers by 45 – 42 in AFC Divisional Round. Home field advantage does not work for the Steelers against the Jaguars. The Jacksonville Jaguars as an underdog team for 10 years, the last positive playoff memory for the Jaguars was a win against the Steelers on a snowy day at Heinz Field in Jan. 2008.

“We’ve evolved since then. They have evolved a lot since then,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters this week of the loss to the Jaguars. “I am sure that they are as different as we are since the last time we’ve seen them.”

The Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots are the only two teams with winning records at Heinz Field since Ben Roethlisberger was drafted.

Saints vs Vikings – NFC Divisional Playoff Game Preview

It’s been a while since the opening game of the season at Minnesota happened between the new Orleans Saints and the Vikings. The game, which saw the Vikings getting the upper hand in a 29-19 victory, seems to be a little bit irrelevant today as the two teams again face off at the U.S. Bank Stadium.

They are completely different teams now, and this Sunday clash that starts at 4:40 pm ET on Fox and Fox Sports Go, has plenty of the line. For one, both the teams need to win to get to a NFC Championship berth and we are sure that this game would be a lot more competitive than what we saw before.

Saints vs Vikings: Game Preview

We expect the match to be a lot closer. Case Keenum will now lead the Viking side, with Sam Bradford being sidelined due to a knee injury. It might be remembered that it was Bradford in the first game at Minnesota who made a lot of difference, connecting early and repeatedly. On the other hand, we see an improved defense and strategy from the New Orleans’ side.

However, given everything, we still think the Vikings will have an upper hand in the game. The Minnesota Vikings have had a great year, and under the captaincy of quarterback Case Keenum, they have been able to score 23 or more points in each of its home games. Case Keenum, on his own, has been able to make 22 touchdown passes and has completed as many as 67 percent of his attempts.

The Saints have had a rough season, an unpredictable one at that. After losing out the first game against the Vikings, they did fare well for a few games, but has again struggled in the last few weeks. In a recent match in week 17 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Saints allowed them as many as 31 points. The Saints did manage to hold on to a win against the Carolina Panthers, which was a wild card round, but it was more of scraping through with a 31-26 win.

For the Saints, they have had four players who were able to hit the 100 receiving yards in the past couple of weeks, and gave up 300-yard performances to quarterbacks in each of the contest they played. It doesn’t seem to be enough if you are looking for a side who wants to beat the Vikings, who have just lost one lone game this year, a 14-7 defeat against the Detroit Lions.

We know that people and analysts like making predictions when it comes to a game between the Saints and Vikings, and we thought about making a few of our own. We would love if Mark Ingram gets over 100 rushing yards – and we sure want to put our bets behind it!

We also expect Case Keenum to be able to throw in for under 200 passing years, and get two INTs.

No matter how things pan out, we sure have one great match this Sunday to look forward to!
