Josh Allen leads Bills to dominating win over Patriots

Josh Allen after Bills defeat Patriots in playoffs 2022

You could see it on the first drive of the game. Josh Allen was ready to run the ball when needed, and he was being accurate with his throws despite the cold weather. That as it turned out was a terrible combination for the Patriots defense and the Bills went on to destroy New England 47-17 in a game that must have been pure nirvana for Bills fans.

Allen completed 21 of 25 passes for 308 yards and 5 touchdowns. He was the difference all night long, but this entire team came out to play. Bills players were called out by the press after a tough home loss to the Patriots earlier in the season when they were bullied in cold weather. They weren’t going to let that happen again.

Meanwhile, Mac Jones had a rough night even as he started the game with some nice throws. His first interception was a nice throw, but Micah Hyde made an amazing play on the ball for the INT.

The real problem, however, was the Patriots defense that gave up a touchdown to the Bills on their first seven drives of the game. Bill Belichick had to be sick after this performance, which of course had to make Bills fans that much happier.

The Bills were a 4.5 point favorite in this game, but it’s a game I didn’t want to touch as we didn’t know which version of Josh Allen would show up. Allen wasted no time showing he came to play, and this version of Josh Allen makes the Bills a serious Super Bowl contender. Allen’s problem has always been consistency. At times he can lose his accuracy. If he can be dependable throwing the ball and run when needed, the Bills will be tough to beat this postseason. Let’s see how he does.

Packers and Chiefs favored to meet in the Super Bowl as NFL playoffs commence

NFL futures january 2022

The NFL playoffs kick off today with the Las Vegas Raiders visiting Cincinnati in the opening game. Playoff weekend extends through Monday night as the NFL pushes to continue its dominance on television and maximize ratings.

As we start the payoffs, NFL futures have the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs as the favorites to meet in the Super Bowl as you can see above. Both teams are playing great football and a matchup of these two squads would probably give us a great Super Bowl, though we all know the NFL playoffs rarely work out that way. This is what makes the NFL great.

Here’s a quick look at the NFL lines for the playoff games:

Week 1 NFL Lines

The NFL season kicks off tonight with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs taking on DeShaun Watson and the Houston Texans. It’s a battle of two of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the league so this one should be fun. Can the defending champs cover a big line tonight?

You can see all the current NFL lines here and also check out the video above. One of many interesting games has Miami getting 6.5 points on the road against New England. The key here is that Miami is an up-and-coming team, while New England starts the post-Tom Brady era. Cam Newton gets the nod, and that would not make me feel comfortable about laying down the points.

Rob Gronkowski traded to Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Rob Gronkowski was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to reunite with Tom Brady, which will make things pretty interesting in Tampa.

Naturally, this gives everyone plenty to talk about in terms of the drama in New England with playing for Bill Belichick. Both of these guys probably wouldn’t mind a fresh start in a different atmosphere.

It’s really going to be interesting to see if Gronk can hold up. If so, you have a bevy of weapons in Tampa with Mike Evans, O.J. Howard and Chris Godwain. Brady will have his weapons!

Meanwhile, what are Patriots fans thinking?

Can Jarod Goff lead the Rams to a Super Bowl win over the Patriots?

After a miserable rookie season under Jeff Fisher where he threw more interceptions than touchdowns, few would have predicted that Jared Goff would be a starting quarterback in the Super Bowl just two years later. Instead, many were tossing around the “bust” term.

Things certainly changed once Sean McVay took over the Rams and quickly resurrected Goff’s career and reputation with his innovative offensive schemes. This past season Goff completed 64.9% of his passes for 4,688 yards, 32 touchdowns and just 12 interceptions.
