Well folks...looks like the Dallas Cowboys will not see a Super Bowl anytime soon as they walk away from AT&T stadium with a 34-31 loss against the Green Bay Packers. While it's an upset for the fans just as much as the players, the boys played exceptionally well, despite their rough start, making an astonishing 15-pt comeback in the 4th quarter. Thankfully, this wasn't a blowout game and the rookies were able to stand their ground throughout and accept their 'L' with poise.
So now that Elliot and Prescott know what it's like to somewhat play in the big leagues, the pressure is on. I-personally-have even higher expectations going into next season, because rebuilding process (that we've been in for what feels like forever) seems to be progressing in a very positive direction and I'm excited what year #2 looks like for the rookies.
At this present moment, the Steelers and the Chiefs meet in Kansas City for an AFC west vs. north match up. There's so much promise in the hands of Kansas City's QB Alex Smith and RB Spencer Ware. Both teams have pretty close regular season records, Steelers ending at 11-5 and Chiefs at 12-4. Steelers have only had one or two remarkable games, one being against Kansas City in week 8, which may actually work in their favor tonight. In their 30-12 win against Miami Dolphins during Wild Card weekend in Pittsburgh, we all witnessed the power of 3 with QB Ben Roethlisberger, WR Antonio Brown, and RB Le'veon Bell, who missed out the last 2 winters the Steelers played in playoff games.
So who will claim the titles for the NFC/AFC Championships next weekend and be on their merry way to Houston February 5th? I'm pulling for Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots As far as who I believe will be in Super Bowl LI champs, I just don't know, because I'm still mourning an incredible loss. (lol although I'm not really laughing)
