- Your AFC Championship Game Open Thread – January 19, 2020
The countdown has begun. Only two more games after this one. Well, I’m sure people started counting down before now but I’m not able to handle anything beyond three so this is when I start. Both games today are rematches and the googler tells me that when teams meet again in the playoffs the winner of the first tussle is 22-14. Make of that what you will.
TO THE GAME!
-Many on this site have adopted the Titans as their squadoo for the playoffs, forgetting The Ancient One’s prophecy regarding Mahomes being a multiple Super Bowl winner. It starts here.
-That is of course if they can stop the run. Another 30+ carries, 125+ yards rushed seems to be a mortal lock for Henry because the Chiefs give up 4.87 yards to opposing rb’s.
-And then the play-action passing game kicks into overdrive. Will it actually involve A.J. Brown though. He’s disappeared to the tune of 4 total targets the last two games. Perhaps Tajae Sharpe and his 70% catch rate (highest of all remaining wr’s) is the player to look for.
-One other mathy tidbit to keep in mind-Tennessee is 4-0 in games this year when they’ve been 4 or more point dogs.
-But ya gotta think that the Chiefs just have far too many weapons. They hung 51 points on the Texans last week and Tyreek didn’t even get involved. And conventional wisdom dictates that Kelce will keep on rolling against a team that gives up the 4th most scores to the tight end spot.
-Prediction Time! The Titans will score but the Chiefs will score more-they’re far healthier than they were the first time around. 35-21.
