The Road to Superbowl 50 – Doug’s Sports Rap
The road to Super 50 will be completed this weekend when the number one and number two seed teams in the AFC and NFC meet for their conference titles.
New England Patriots at Denver Bronco-Sunday 3:05pm;
Another Tom Brady-Peyton Manning matchup, Broncos fans should be a little concerned with Manning's health, he doesn't have the arm he used to have, Denver will need a good running attack, so Hillman and Anderson need to gain some yardage and keep the offensive on the field, and the ball out of Brady's hands.
New England has Julian Edelman and even though he is a little banged up Rob Gronkowski has been Brady's favorite target, the big question is can Denver's #1 defense pressure Brady and make him throw too soon, or sack him for a loss.
This will be a good game and I'm going out on a limb here, but the final score will be Denver 24 New England 21
Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers-Sunday 6:40pm;
The battle of two Heisman trophy winners and number one picks in their draft years, Carson Palmer and Cam Newton.
The Cardinals have a great offense, but didn't play as well as they could have in their divisional playoff game against the Packers, I think Carson learned from that game and will be much better on Sunday.
The Panthers have been close enough to perfect all season and I don't expect their play to be any less this weekend, Cam Newton is a dangerous quarterback because he has great vision and he can run.
This should be a high scoring game but my prediction the Panthers will be heading to San Francisco, the final score will be Carolina 35 Arizona 31.
Anything could happen, these are the top four teams in the NFL.
Get ready for some great football in Sunday.
