Hello and welcome back to The Cowan Corner for another week of NFL picks and predictions.
We are down to the final four teams as we have four really good to great offenses and no great defenses remaining in the hunt, which is rather unusual.
This means we could be set for a high-scoring slate of games Sunday as the teams fight to make the final push to the Super Bowl.
Without further ado, let’s get into this week’s picks.
Falcons over Packers
The Packers enter this game on an eight-game winning streak and just knocked off the No. 1 seed Dallas Cowboys.
The Falcons have had a fantastic year on the offensive side of the ball and were able to easily beat the Seahawks on Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers is playing on another level right now and is unquestionably the best quarterback in football, but I think Matt Ryan has more weapons around him.
I think this will be a very exciting shootout and the Falcons will do just enough to win at home.
Patriots over Steelers
The Steelers are on a nine-game winning streak of their own, but they face a Patriots team which has won eight straight games and just dropped 34 points on one of the best defenses in the NFL.
This game has the potential to be close, but I think the Patriots will be motivated to win at all costs and should be able to do so fairly easily.
This should set up an interesting matchup between the Falcons and Patriots in the Super Bowl.
That does it for this week’s picks. Check back in two weeks for Super Bowl predictions and analysis of the week that was in football.
