Lol, wow. Mahomes is gonna have to throw for 600 now thanks to the Chiefs special teams/WRs. Would this be the first time a 4 and 6 seed have met in a conference championship, I wonder? Assuming the Texans can hold on.

Edit: apparently not, after some quick googling, but either way, I was dead wrong about how the AFC playoffs were going to go this year. Too many years of watching teams melt down and shit their pants in Foxborough for me to expect different, but it's been great so far.

So far this weekend has just proved to me why you cant sleep on ANY team in the playoffs. The skill gap in the league is so minuscule even between the best and the worst teams and anyone can beat anyone at any time. And you dont make it to the playoffs by not being a good team. Nothing is ever guaranteed.

And because of all this, count me as one fucking entertained fan in this postseason so far.

It's happened before.

Eagles vs. Cardinals in 2008.

I can't wait for the sports media to lose their collective shit when their golden talking points (Lamar Jackson and Kermit Mahomes) are out of the playoffs. 'Uh... Is it gonna be... Uh... Wait, Tannehill is still playing? Is he going to win a bowl? "

So we're slated for an AFCCG between one of the most explosive offenses and an offense that centers around giving it to black mountain letting him just eat up yards.... And an NFCCG between Belichick's crush and the All-State guy.

Will we see an offensive powerhouse finally just waffle-stomp an NFC opponent, or is Rodgers gonna get a second ring by squeaking one out over a team that plays JUST good enough for 55 minutes, but falters just enough in the closing minutes to salt the game away?

I am cautiously hopeful, or deluded depending on your point of view, about the Packers chances in the NFCCG.
I base this off the incredibly meaningless observation that GB typically puts up a much better fight in the post season against teams that stomped them in the regular season.
The Seahawks won 36-16 in week 1 of 2014. The Packers manhandled them for 55 minutes in the NFCCG...Until McCarthy's conservatism and cocky playcalling came home to roost in the final five minutes.
The Cardinals stomped us 38-8 in week 16 of 2015. We took them to OT in the divisional round. Should have gone for 2 after the Hail Mary in hindsight.
The Cowboys beat us up at home 30-16 in week 6 of 2016. We then up ended that little bandwagon in the divisional round. The ensuing Skip Bayless freakout was fucking legendary.
Okay that's only 1 out of 3 resulting in a victory but it's something to go off of.
I'll always be proud of the Super Bowls ... Especially those last two (I still tell people that Super Bowl XLII is one of the best nights of my life, and I'm not lying!). However, a fan can only ride on that high for so long, especially since Super Bowl XLVI is getting closer and closer to being a decade ago at this point.

Plus, Odell Beckham Jr. has been a thing that Giants fans have had to deal with in recent years. I've been through plenty of embarrassing times based on that clown's behavior alone, haha.

What I'm trying to say is that I will never act like a run-of-the-mill Cowboys fan, and say stuff like "neener neener, my team is better than yours" based on a dynasty that ended almost 30 years ago. A person can remain proud of their team's history (especially when they had a dynasty), sure, but to use it as a way to compare their team to the CURRENT teams? Yeah, no. I can't do that. The Giants are a Hindenburg right now, slowly turning into a Chernobyl situation (meaning I'm expecting a decade of hurt and cringe as I watch the games). It is what it is. I'll continue to hope for the best, though.
I hate and respect the Giant's at the same time.
On the one hand they fucked up the Patriots twice...On the other hand they had to go through the Packers to get there, 15-1/Rodger's first MVP and 13-3/Farve's last shot at glory both up in smoke by Eli's hand.
Just admit it the Giant's used up 20 years worth of luck going on those runs.

As a bears fan I hope jimmy porn star g packs your guys fudge.

Edit: I dont really think a little harmless sports trash talk warrants a MOTI rating, I mean this is a football thread, but it's all good ratings arent worth stressin' 'bout.

This is the game I was expecting Titans-Ravens to be yesterday
The Titans are gonna pull a mid 2000's Giants I think. A Wildcard team that just eek'd in and then got super hot at the right time with coaches game planning specific opponents perfectly, then to go on to not do too much in the following years
