Stick around until the end and receive a chance to win easy 500$ in Bracket Challenge.

AFC Wildcard Predictions

Jacksonville Jaguarsjacksonville_jaguarslos_angeles_chargers Los Angeles Chargers

Wild card round in AFC kicks off with two young and very promising teams facing each other. Jaguars amazing late season push has been delight for fans all around the league, while Chargers have been looking like sleeper pick for Supebowl for all year. Seems like Jaguars are too fresh to contend this year, so have to go with Justin Herbert and the Chargers on this one.

My Winner Pick – Los Angeles Chargers los_angeles_chargers

Cincinnati Bengalscincinnati_bengalsbaltimore_ravens Baltimore Ravens

This AFC north divisional rivalry is about the get more intense. Defending AFC champs are hosting very weird Ravens team in Cincinnati next week. Baltimore’s defense has been solid all year, but offense struggled to get some points on the board for several weeks. Although on paper Ravens seem like a good match-up against Bengals, I still believe Joe Borrow and Ja’Marr Chase will take care of the business on their home field.

My Winner Pick – Cincinnati Bengals cincinnati_bengals

Buffalo BillsBuffalo-Billsmiami_dolphins Miami Dolphins

One of the most one-sided match-ups in playoffs this year is between very very strong Bills team and struggling Dolphins.Even with Tua Tagovailoa healthy, Dolphins would still be heavy underdogs, but without Tua it seems like Josh Allen and Bills will have very comfortable Wild Card round.

My Winner Pick – Buffalo Bills Buffalo-Bills

NFC Wildcard Predictions

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tampa_bay_buccaneersdallas_cowboys Dallas Cowboys

This match-up is twitter bait from head to toe. No matter who wins, haters are gonna have field day dunking on either Cowboys or Tom Brady. In football side tho, Cowboys are way better team than struggling Bucs so no surprises on my pick here.

My Winner Pick – Dallas Cowboys dallas_cowboys

Minnesota Vikings minnesota_vikingsnew_york_giants New York Giants

New York Giants surprised everyone by qualifying for playoffs with subpar roster at best. Vikings are not exactly most stable and reliable franchise but they should be able to take care of business in very cold Minnesota.

My Winner Pick – Minnesota Vikings minnesota_vikings

San Francisco 49ers san_francisco_49ersseattle_seahawks Seattle Seahawks

49ers are the best team in NFC, while Seahawks achieved a miracle by locking up wildcard spot already. So 49ers all the way, even without their best QB.

My Winner Pick – San Francisco 49ers san_francisco_49ers

AFC Divisional Predictions

Kansas City Chiefs kansas_city_chiefslos_angeles_chargers Los Angeles Chargers

If things go right, this match-up will produce fireworks for every football fan out there. Chargers are explosive, dynamic and overall exiting young team, while Chiefs have dominated NFL in last 5 years with their offense. Expect Kansas City to come out on top.

My Winner Pick – Kansas City Chiefs kansas_city_chiefs

Buffalo Bills Buffalo-Billscincinnati_bengals Cincinnati Bengals

Another great duel between very talented young quarterbacks in AFC (Seems like a trend in this conference). Good almost-evenly matched game, but I think Buffalo Bills have just too much firepower to go out this way.

My Winner Pick – Buffalo Bills Buffalo-Bills

NFC Divisional Predictions

Minnesota Vikingsminnesota_vikingssan_francisco_49ers San Francisco 49ers

Vikings have had an amazing start of the season, but towards the end, showed many sides of weaknesses that will be exploited by good teams. 49ers have overall better team and with Home Field advantage, they should be able to book their ticket to NFC Championship Game.

My Winner Pick – San Francisco 49ers san_francisco_49ers

Dallas Cowboys dallas_cowboysphiladelphia_eagles Philadelphia Eagles

Classic rivalry between NFC East juggernauts. Eagles started the season with 11 straight wins, and won both division and conference comfortably, but recent games have shown they are not as unbeatable as everyone believed them to be. Tough call, but going with upset on this one and riding with Dallas Cowboys.

My Winner Pick – Dallas Cowboys dallas_cowboys

AFC Championship Predictions

Kansas City Chiefs kansas_city_chiefsBuffalo-Bills Buffalo Bills

Honestly, this match-up would suit a Superbowl game, but football gods are cruel, so we’ll have to watch Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes duke it out once again in AFC championship. Since no home field advantage to either team, Chances are 50-50 according to many, but Fanboy in me picks Kansas City as the AFC winner once again.

My Winner Pick – Kansas City Chiefs kansas_city_chiefs

NFC Championship Predictions

Dallas Cowboys dallas_cowboyssan_francisco_49ers San Francisco 49ers

Another almost 50-50 match-up expected in NFC Championship game (Honestly can’t wait for Championship Sunday already). I like cowboys more and more as seasons progresses and don’t feel too good about my Preseason NFC Champion pick, but can’t back-track now, gotta go all the way with 49ers.

My Winner Pick – San Francisco 49ers san_francisco_49ers

Superbowl Predictions

Kansas City Chiefs kansas_city_chiefssan_francisco_49ers San Francisco 49ers

Rematch of Superbowl couple years back was anticipated by many (Including me) after Christian Maccaffrey trade. Don’t expect huge offensive slugfest in SuperBowl 57, but should be nail-bitter. Gotta go with my Chiefs to go all the way this year!

My Winner Pick – Kansas City Chiefs kansas_city_chiefs
