Superbowl 50 Projection, Divisional Sunday

Carolina over New England

There are only 2 days of football left. Like I think I've written before, from a pure football perspective, the Conference Championship day is the best day of the year. The Superbowl has lots of accouterments, of course, such as the commercials, the 2 weeks of hype, and Superbowl parties.

Both teams I rooted for yesterday lost, Pittsburgh to Denver, and Seattle to Carolina. The first two weeks of playoffs have been effectively meaningless, as we'll now see the #1 vs #2 seeds in each conference championship.

Here's who I'm rooting for on Championship Sunday:

New England at Denver:
I've got New England favored almost 2 to 1, but I've got to root for the underdog in this one. Denver is actually the higher seed and will be hosting, so perhaps that will tip the scales in their favor a bit.

Arizona at Carolina:
I'm not sure which of these two I'd like to see in the Superbowl. Neither is my favorite team, but neither really rubs me the wrong way either. I'll say I'm officially rooting for Carolina, but that may change between now and then.
