The one game kids have been dreaming about playing in all of their lives is almost here. Super Bowl LII will be played at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota on Feb. 4 at 5:30 p.m.

Brady, Bortles, Foles and Keenum. One legend and three rookies to the playoffs make up the championship games before The Super Bowl. Although these games may not have the superstar talent many fans have been searching for, like wide receiver Antonio Brown or quarterback Drew Brees, these two games are going to be great for a watch party. Let’s take a full in depth analysis on both of these two games this weekend leading up to the big game.

NFC Championship Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles

This match up will come down to the two quarterbacks that started their careers here in Texas. With all of the momentum coming from the Vikings game winning walk-off to stun the New Orleans Saints last week last week, I think that they will come away with a win on the road. But, the Eagles have been underdogs all season long. Key factors of this game will come with both elite defensive line core. Whichever team you root for, make sure to watch out for the two quarterbacks in this one.

AFC Championship New England Patriots vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Two story-lines, but only one winner can be crowed as AFC champion. On one hand, the legendary Tom Brady and the dynasty of the Patriots behind him, and on the other, a very young, although talented Jacksonville squad led by 25-year-old quarterback Blake Bortles. This season has been revolved around the ferocious Jaguar defense that has led the entire league in turnovers, but with the very smart and strategic playbook of the Patriots, I see nobody stopping this juggernaut of New England.
