The NFL playoffs 2021 remains Super Bowl-ready with only four teams remaining.
The battle for the AFC and NFC championship games is nearing as four teams are left for the biggest challenge- the Super Bowl 2021, the most awaited football event after a pandemic-delayed season.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills, and Kansas City Chiefs are now preparing for the most extreme NFL playoffs 2021 matchups for this year after an exciting Super Wildcard Weekend and Divisional Round last week.
No. 1 Green Bay Packers will host No. 5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3:05 p.m. @Fox)
The NFC top seed Packers (14-3) remained unshaken during the divisional round after destroying defense-leading Los Angeles Rams, 32-18, with a dominant 484-yard finish.
The odds may be predictable for the Packers, but Aaron Rodgers is on his way to win his second Super Bowl title. The last time the Packers won was in 2010 when they successfully upset the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-25 with Rodger as the MVP.
Now, Rodgers will prepare for the impending Buccaneers, who has Tom Brady as Tampa Bay’s torpedo.
“To be honest, I’m still reveling in this one. There’s a lot of time to think about those things. My initial reaction is those guys are great, great players. Have been for a long time,” Rodgers spoke in his postgame interviewer, as per NESN.
A dream matchup is about to take place, and we only need to alternate breathing and blinking from missing every single encounter of the two oldest stars in the league- and the two of the greatest quarterbacks who are still playing.
On Sunday, the Buccaneers are back on track to the NFC championship after stopping the New Orleans Saints in a 30-20 victory. Age is just a number for a 43-year-old Bucs’ star Brady as he heads to his 14th conference championship appearance.
The divisional clash was highlighted by Brady’s ageless strength and an unwavering beauty of passes from soon-to-turn-42 Drew Brees, who is one of the best passers in the NFL history.
During the regular season, Tampa Bay won over Green Bay, 38-10. There’s a lot of lessons for Rodgers to bounce back from the tough loss and Brady has to continue his winning ways with the Bucs.
No. 1 Kansas City Chiefs will arrange the final AFC game with No. 2 Buffalo Bills (6:40 p.m. @ CBS)
The predictions are on the table and now ready to cater to the guests who will thrive the wild AFC championship match-up at Arrowhead Stadium.
The home team, Kansas City Chiefs, (15-2) looks to display another historic collision as they face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Kansas’ star-studded quarterback Patrick Mahomes was put in a concussion protocol after a third-quarter hit against Cleveland Browns according to The Athletic. The injury update for Mahomes will be one of the week’s biggest news.
The Chiefs will have to face the Bills without Mahomes if he could not still recover. Josh Allen, on the other hand, is now being watched after his emphatic passes in the wildcard and divisional rounds. The 24-year-old quarterback is now living for a vivid call of being one of Buffalo’s main man in the playoffs.
Aside from Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs prevail to be more dangerous with Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill who are both genius catchers. This does not mean that the Buffalo Bills will only stick to one trump card, as they contain Stefon Diggs, who is NFL’s leader in yard reception and catches. Buffalo obtained Diggs during the off-season trade with Minnesota Vikings.
The Bills now look ahead of the glimmer from the AFC crown to snap their AFC-drought since 1994, when they thrashed the Chiefs.
According to Sporting News, Mahomes will be replaced by Chad Henne, a veteran back-up quarterback who had two carries and 66-yard passing on Kansas’ win over Browns.
27 years later, history will repeat itself.
