Offense Wins Championships

Clearly in the wake of this modern day NFL, the way to win the Super Bowl is with offense. In that case, the Super Bowl will be played by the New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints.

In the AFC, the Texans will play the Bengals. This game will not resemble a playoff game at all. They’ll be two rookie quarterbacks competing against each other, not having any real clue of what’s at stake. The Texans just haven’t been the same since they found out they were division champs and were in the playoffs for the first time in history. The Bengals will beat the Texans because they are limping into the playoffs having already loss three games in a row.

The Bengals will win the right to lose to New England by a lot as the Patriots will wait for the right to play in the AFC championship game.

The Steelers have a first round bye. Okay, not really, let’s call it a practice against a tough scout team called the Denver Broncos. This unconventional offense just won’t and can’t work against a league leading and bruising Pittsburgh defense. If Tebow runs the ball ten times, we will find out if Brady Quinn his backup still cares about football.

The Steelers will then finally lose to their arch rival Baltimore Ravens squad. The Ravens have found the chink in the Steelers armor and will expose it for the third time this season.

The Raves won’t be able to keep up with Brady’s offense and will lose in the AFC Championship game.

In the NFC the Giants will beat up the Falcons and a still unproven Matt Ryan. The Giants will subsequently lose to the Packers because they can’t keep up with Aaron Rodgers explosive offense.

The Saints will completely run up the score against the Lions. The Lions secondary is awful and that’s not what you want against the QB with the most passing yards in a season.

This win will setup a matchup with the most complete team in the league, the San Francisco 49’ers. Alex Smith won’t be able to matchup against Drew Brees and the 49ers will lose.

Two of the most explosive offenses will meet in the NFC championship game. Both QB’s will cancel each other out. The edge on defense goes to the Saints, so they’ll win because of it.
