    Super Bowl LI: Championship Round Previews and Predictions

    Jason Owen, Sports Editor

    January 17, 2017

    AFC:    Last week the Steelers' win over the Chiefs came down to a failed two-point conversion, and I think this week's matchup will as well, only this time it will be the Steelers on the losing end. Pittsburgh has a great offense that had a considerable amount of trouble scoring in the red zone last week, coming with no touchdowns.

    AFC:    I’m being a little nice here. New England dominated this matchup with back in week 3 with a dominant 27 point victory despite having rookie third rounder Jacoby Brissett starting at quarterback. Tom Brady will be playing in this one and the 39 year old has yet to show signs of slowing down. Houston’s defense, especially surprise standout cornerback A.J Bouye, has taken a huge step forward since then. Brock Osweiler will be... READ MORE »»
