Great Football Weekend ahead of us.
A look at who wins…
(College Championship Game)
LSU-Clemson..What a matchup….Heisman hero QB-Joe Burrow (56TD) against do-everything Clemson QB-Trevor Lawrence…Brent Venables does great things in designing the Clemson defense..but does he have enough people to contain Burrow…his 3-big wide receivers and RB-Clyde Hellaire. Lawrence and RB-Travis Etienne are so explosive and so diverse. Lawrence ability to move the pocket almost changes the game plan of opposing coordinators. Too much LSU firepower……(49-42) Bayou Bengals.
Chiefs-Houston…A bye week-do you know what Andy Reid’s record is in the games coming off a bye week? Try (17-3). They are rested-they are healthy, the offense is so dynamic and explosive. Houston is coming off a hard fought win on Wildcard Weekend, but still does not protect QB-Deshaun Watson enough. Yes he has 3-wideouts to make big plays, but will he hold up against an improving KC defense….Chiefs win (33-21)
Tennessee-Baltimore…The Ravens are sitting there waiting…12-wins in a row enroute to that (14-2) season…Lamar Jackson has accounted for 43-TDs this year, enroute to a (4,300) all purpose yard campaign…His offense is averaging (407) yards per game…How much juice does Derrick Henry have left after than 34-carry performance in the win in New England….Just too much Ravens firepower…ends badly for Titans (29-16)
Green Bay-Seattle….Seahawks aren’t playing in a dome this weekend, and yes I know they are (6-0) in games played on the East Coast-Midwest…but without his running backs, just don’t see Russell Wilson being able to do this by himself….Aaron Rodgers-Aaron Jones make a huge force for Seattle’s leaky defense to deal with…Rodgers is (19-4) at Lambeau the last two seasons….And how about this…8-to-10 inches of snow on Saturday with high winds…come Sunday-snow showers 22-degrees by darkness at kickoff time…..Packers probably win in low scoring game (19-9)
Minnesota-San Francisco…What a hard road for the Vikings…Won in New Orleans…now go cross-country on short work week to face the 49ers Earthquake defense…San Francisco’s defensive numbers are staggering, especially the 33-sacks from the front four…but that offense has grown dangerous too under Jim Garoppolo-and his three receiver set…Vikings are not good in the back end and George Kittle and friends will expose them on Sunday…Nice season ends for the guys in Purple….Niners nail them 31-17.
