Well, there goes one of the only good players on the Lions....
Four remaining teams. Two games. Two will advance to the Super Bowl. Two others will be having Super Bowl watch parties (social/physical distancing, of course). It begins with the NFC Championship Game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Green Bay Packers. Then, there will be the Buffalo Bills at the Kansas City Chiefs. The winners of these two will play in Tampa Bay, FL in Super Bowl LV.
Enjoy today's games!
Given how the NFL works, I don't doubt it. I'm sure they're going to do their damnest to make it a Brady v. Mahomes Super Bowl so they have that whole "passing the torch" narrative.
Green Bay plays conservative and goes for a FG down 8 then gets burned on a penalty. When you play a Brady team, NEVER put yourself in a position that you can lose due to a random penalty called at the worst time against your team.If Green Bay is so insistent on choking this game away then Buffalo better lose tonight.
They should fire LeFleur for being a Jason Garett-level coward.
It seems to me that it would have made more sense to go for it on 4th down, but it wasn't a complete no-brainer. However, kicking didn't set up an easy scenario for a win either. In the circumstances, with Aaron Rodgers & the NFL's best RedZone offense it would have been a more than reasonable gamble to have gone for it.
I thought if you went for it and didn't make it, at worst you would have Tampa pinned back inside their own 10 yard line. Then if you could hold them you should get decent field position after a punt. Plus it's not like there was 5 or 6 minutes left, it was right at the 2 minute warning.
