NFL playoffs: 7 bold predictions for the NFC Championship Game

  NFL playoffs: 7 bold predictions for the NFC Championship Game NFL playoffs: 7 bold predictions for the NFC Championship GameDon’t expect the Niners to shut down Aaron Rodgers the way they did in the first meeting. The Packers were totally out of sorts and off their game for the entire contest. Rodgers won’t let that happen again.

The AFC Championship Game will be played Sunday at Arrowhead in Kansas City. The high-flying Chiefs against the surprising Tennesee Titans. There are big names that rise up in big games and sometimes the least likely player becomes the hero.

Derrick Henry won’t be the reason Tennessee stumbles against Kansas City. In the AFC Championship Game, he will continue his run toward free agency with 20-plus carries and 125 yards. He will need to find the end zone a couple times for the Titans to have a prayer.

The fun run and games stop against Baltimore’s tough defense. Don’t expect the former Heisman winner from Alabama to reach triple figures against the Ravens, who will slow him down.

Tannehill won’t throw for 250 yards

Ryan Tannehill has turned into the Titans’ version of Nick Foles. He’s led quite the resurgence that has Tennessee on the verge of its first Super Bowl appearance since Jan. 30, 2000. Not quite as long as the 50 years KC is working on, but the Titans’ faithful has to be parched, too.

Mahomes will throw for 300 yards

The Jaguars reached the AFC Championship Game two years ago behind a few good games from Blake Bortles and a dominant defense that put constant pressure on Foles will continue that magic in the playoffs , playing at a high level and leading Jacksonville back toward the NFL 's best teams.

Patrick Mahomes never panicked despite being down 24 against Houston. Expect the same calm and cool quarterback against Tennessee. However, he won’t have to push the gas pedal as hard. Mahomes will throw for more than 300 yards — two receivers over the 100-yard mark — and will be the star of the game.

Kelce will catch double-digit passes

The Super Bowl could set up as a showdown of great tight ends if San Francisco and Kansas City advance. Big personalities and massive talent are what make George Kittle and Travis Kelce wonderful to watch. The Titans won’t have any answers for the Chiefs’ great tight end, who will catch more than 10 passes and find the end zone.

Clark will have two sacks

Frank Clark came to Kansas City to help firm up a leaky defense. He’s done his part, as has DB Tyrann Mathieu. Look for Clark to harass Ryan Tannehill throughout the AFC Championship and take him down a couple times in the backfield.

Joseph will kick his first field goal

The Titans have had kicking woes. Greg Joseph has been with the team for a pair of regular season and playoff games, respectively. He has connected on all 15 extra points. However, he has yet to attempt a field goal. That will change Sunday at Arrowhead when Joseph makes his three-pointer. In case you were wondering, he was 17-of-20 for the Browns in 2018. Tennessee is a putrid 8-of-18 on the season for field goals. How ironic would it be if one put it into the Super Bowl?

Chiefs will make the Super Bowl

The Titans won’t come up a yard short … sorry. Kansas City ends the magical run for Mike Vrabel, Ryan Tannehill and Tennessee. Don’t think KC will fall behind by 24 as it did against the Texans and it won’t break 50. But it will book travel to Florida.
