Superbowl 50 Projection, Divisional Saturday

Arizona over New England

This has been a tough week for me as a football fan. The Rams have left for Los Angeles. I can't decide if I'll watch and root for them next year, as they'll have most of the 2015 St. Louis players, and Jeff Fisher is still the coach it would seem.

As for the teams who actually played yesterday, New England didn't really dominate Kansas City, but they did take a lead and refused to give it up. Green Bay tied the game on an amazing last-second Hail Mary pass, but promptly lost on the first possession in overtime without Aaron Rodgers getting a chance more more heroics. Thus, my picks when 0 for 2 yesterday.

Now let's see who I'm rooting for tomorrow to finish out the Conference Championship participants.

Seattle at Carolina:
If Carolina were undefeated, I would root for them automatically, for a chance to see the first team to ever go 19-0. Since the winner will play Arizona, I'm going to root for Seattle, to see one last hurrah from "my" division before I become more of an AFC West kinda guy. Although, if Green Bay had won last night, I might still have rooted for Seattle so that Green Bay would get to host. I'll have to do some digging and see if any conference championship has ever involved the #5 vs #6 seeds.

Pittsburgh at Denver:
I usually root for Pittsburgh, mostly because a good friend of mine is a Steelers fan. I've always liked Peyton Manning, though, so I'll be okay with either of these teams moving on to face the Patriots.
