Conference Championship Football Match-Ups

football conference championships

Only one more game until the Super Bowl, so watch as the last four football teams play it out for their spot at the Conference championships. Only four teams remain, the New England Patriots, Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, and Carolina Panthers. During this weekend’s match-ups we will see the top franchises in the NFL battle it out for their shot to go to the Super Bowl. We all know that the most important player on the field is the quarterback, so let’s see which QB’s will be facing each other.

Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning

This is the equivalent to the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight, as these two throwing giants will be facing each other; too bad it’s not at the Super Bowl! Brady and Manning have been longtime rivals, ever since Manning was back with the Colts. It was mainly driven by the fact that each of their fan base, and the NFL in general, believe them to be the best quarterbacks. This match-up will certainly help fuel that rivalry.

Each team will need to have their players at their best, as the quarterback can only do so much. Brady has the advantage of having Rob Gronkowski, one of the best tight ends in the league. During the regular season Gronkowski caught for 72 receptions, 1,176 yards, and 11 touchdowns, and was instrumental in their victory over the Chiefs last week, getting another 83 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Manning doesn’t fall short on talent either, with the help from Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, who both caught for more than 1,000 yards, and look to be in top shape coming into the playoffs. In the end, it will be up to which team has the better defense, seeing as how stopping any of these two giants will be key to winning.

Cardinals at Panthers

The Arizona Cardinals have the number one offense in the league, but will be going up against the Carolina Panthers, who have the number two rushing in the league. These two powerhouses will have a great game, and expect the scores to be high on both sides. Their offense is outstanding, but what makes them so good is that their defense are also at the top of their game.

This game is also an amazing preview of what the Super Bowl game could look like, and it will certainly be an intense football match.
