Green Bay Packer vs Atlanta Falcons
There is all this talk of Matt Ryan being the MVP this year but the Dirty Birds better not sleep on Aaron Rodgers. Hollywood is digging into Rodgers personal life, nevertheless that will not distract one the finest quarterbacks around. The family may air their dirty laundry to reporters but I would expect Rodgers and the Pack to be prepared for the Falcons.
The Falcons have all the pieces in place this year. The Falcons have home field, a good running game, good defense and the play calling of Kyle Shanahan for “Matty Ice”, going against the worst passing defense in the league. There is no way they can lose. Right?
Pittsburgh Steelers vs New England Patriots
Someone pulled the Steelers team hotel alarm at 3AM this morning. This is not the first time a rival of the Patriots has been the target of a false alarm. What now, ALARMGATE? Seems suspicious because it happened in Boston but I am sure Belichick had nothing to do with it…WINK! Steelers fans better hope that their offense can put up some points this week. Field goals are not going to get the job done. Tom Brady is mad. Deflategate just pissed him off and he wants vengeance. He is about to take it out on Ben Roethlisberger’s team. Even with the best running back and receiver in the league, I don’t see Pittsburgh beating the Patriots in Foxborough. I expect to see the Patriots win their 9th Lamar Hunt Trophy.
