Note: For our AFC Championship breakdown on our sister-site, purplePTSD.com, click here: The Green Bay Packers will be playing in the NFC Championship at home for the first time during the stellar career of quarterback Aaron Rodgers against another heavyweight of the NFL in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Tom Brady.
The Packers and Bucs met once already this season, a game in which Rodgers played worse than he had all (MVP level) season.
The betting world seems split on the outcome of Sunday’s action, for example Sports Betting Dime’s predicted score has Tampa Bay heading to the Super Bowl, despite the fact that most betting sources having the Packers as three-point favorites Sunday.
That may be a testament to the 38-10 victory that the Bucs had at Raymond James stadium back in Week 6.
My pick is Tampa winning a close one for this reason, as I think that the Bucs are the more balanced team and that we’ll get a glimpse of vintage Brady this weekend.
