Who is Going to the Super bowl?

Who is Going to the Super bowl?

And then there were four.

The Ravens, Chiefs, 49ers and Lions all won their Divisional round games to advance to the Championship round and the final step before the Suer Bowl. The games were intense, and you knew an upset was bound to take place. The 49ers trailed for much of the day against the Packers but the 49ers defense and Brock Purdy’s final drive put them over the top. In the other NFC matchup, the Lions outlasted the Buccaneers, who always seemed to be within striking distance, but couldn’t get it done. In the AFC, it was another great playoff game between the Bills and Chiefs, as their two quarterbacks battled back and forth all night. The only game that was a blowout, was also tied at halftime, as the Ravens put it on the Texans in the second half.

Now that we are at the final four, who are the two lucky teams that are going to go all the way? Let’s start with the AFC.

Kansas City Chiefs at Baltimore Ravens. The Chiefs beat the Bills last week, in part, to Travis Kelce looking like old school Kelce. The Bills had injury problems over the middle and Kelce and Patrick Mahomes took advantage of that. I like the Ravens to be able to slow Kelce down better than the Bills.

Baltimore is the hottest team at this point in the season. They also should get TE Mark Andrews back this week and CB Marlon Humphrey. If he can return as well, the Ravens will be ready to roll. So what’s the prediction in this game? A lot of fans are going with the Ravens and I have to agree.

Let’s move on. NFC- Detroit Lions at San Francisco 49ers. The Lions beat the Buccaneers and the 49ers beat the Packers last week in the Divisional round. Both wins were somewhat close, with the 49ers being a bit closer. Neither team is rolling over opponents at the moment, but the 49ers are at home and have a better overall roster. These two are very good teams, but teams will need to play their best to win. That should give the Lions a chance despite being the underdogs. Deebo Samuel should play, but expect him to have trouble with his shoulder injury, especially with the way he runs with the ball. If he’s a full go and doesn’t leave the game, it would be a big boost to the 49ers.

The Lions rookie phenom, TE Sam LaPorta, looked better last week than the week before coming off his knee injury. Expect him to be a little healthier this week. So what’s the pick?? 49ers are expected to pull off the win and I agree with that as well!

No matter who you like and who you are rooting for, the Super Bowl is always a great game to watch! Predictions are showing the Ravens and the 49ers, So who do you think will make it to the biggest game of the year?
