Half of the NFL’s divisional weekend is in the books, and since our Patriots won, we get to have a fun, relaxed Sunday. First, the Niners battle the Panthers in what will decide the second half of the NFC Championship Game, and then the Broncos host the Chargers, a game that should definitely grab the interest of Pats fans.
If the Denver beats San Diego, then New England will have to travel to Denver for the AFC Championship Game next week. However if the Chargers win, the Patriots will be able to host the AFC Championship Game for the third straight year, and they will be getting an easier matchup in the San Diego Chargers. I know that most Pats fans (including myself) will be rooting for the Chargers to pull the upset, and while I don’t think it will happen in the end, they certainly have a good shot at getting the win. If they do in fact lose, the NFL won’t be too sorry, because everybody likes a little Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady, with a Super Bowl berth on the line.
No matter what happens, I think that we are in for a fun day of football, so just kick back, and enjoy (or watch more Pats highlights, whatever you want).
