Today is a big day. Maybe not for our Bengals, but for some who have links to the Bengals, like Mike Zimmer, Emmanuel Lamur, Marquis Flowers, Rex Burkhead, etc. Two games will decide who will be playing for Super Bowl LII and you can believe there will be some Bengal fans rooting for former coaches and players.
In the first game, the AFC Championship, the Jaguars will be taking on the Patriots at 3:05 p.m. ET in Foxborough, Massachusetts at Gillette Stadium and it can be watched on CBS.
Then in the second game, the NFC Championship, the Vikings take on the Eagles at 6:40 p.m. ET in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Lincoln Financial Field and it can be watched on FOX.
The Jaguars defense has been stout all season, while the Patriots have done what they always do, which is move the ball down field with precision and certainty. Can the Jags do enough to hold them and can they continue to see a more poised Blake Bortles? Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are the best at this time of year so it will be tough.
The Vikings have had an amazing defense all year, but have had to deal with adversity on offense, especially at the QB position, due to injuries. However, Case Keenum has had a career year. Can he and the Vikings do enough to power through the Eagles strong defense? Even though Carson Wentz is out and Nick Foles and trying to keep the drive alive, the Eagles offense will try and have the last word as they continue to play the underdog card.
It is going to be a fun day folks so stick around and let the discussion begin!
