Tennessee Titans at. Kansas City Chiefs
Arrowhead Stadium (Kansas City,MO)
Sunday January 19, 2:05 PM CT
Before I say anything about this game, Tennessee has had to play two almost perfect games for them to get here. First, they had to beat what many people call the “GOAT” in Tom Brady and his New England Patriots. Then, they beat the presumable MVP this season and the Baltimore Ravens, who were playing the best football in the NFL this season many think. But the way that the Chiefs mounted a comeback, coming back from 24 down, was magical. Plus, I don’t see the Titans coming into Arrowhead and beating this Chiefs team. So, I’ve got the Chiefs but watch out for the Titans. Prediction:Chiefs 38, Titans 28
Green Bay Packers at. San Francisco 49ers
Levi Stadium (San Francisco,CA)
Sunday January 19, 5:40 PM CT
The last time these two teams squared off, the 49ers walked into Lambeau Field and destroyed this Packers team. But with a trip to Miami (the Super Bowl) on the line, things may be a little different. So, I give the home team in this one an advantage too. And not just for that reason. Using their running game and defense to get to this game might have been easy but now young QB Jimmy Garapollo will have to step up and make big time throws against the Green Bay defense. On the other side of things, Packers Head Coach Matt LaFleur led the Packers to the NFC Championship in his first year there. But, like in their first matchup this season, the 49ers will fluster QB Aaron Rodgers and will come away a win away from winning the Super Bowl. Prediction:49ers 24, Packers 20
CFP National Championship
3.Clemson vs. 1.LSU
New Orleans, Louisiana
8 PM ET, ESPN/ESPN App
Two of the best quarterbacks in the country meet in the CFP National Championship between LSU’s Heisman winner Joe Burrow and Clemson’s phenom Trevor Lawrence. Both teams have receivers that are long and tall including Clemson’s Justyn Ross and Tee Higgins and LSU’s Ja’Marr Chase, Justin Jefferson, and Terrace Marshall. It’s the defenses though that will change the game. Whoever’s defense can step up and make plays down the stretch. That is what will determine the game. Prediction:LSU 55, Clemson 45
Former Arkansas commit, 2020 QB Chandler Morris threw a horns down and committed to Oklahoma over where his dad coaches at Auburn. Top 2020 tight end prospect Darnell Washington committed to Georgia over Alabama, Florida, Miami, and Tennessee. Both committed at the 2020 Under Armour All American Game.
Top NFL Wide Receiver prospect Jerry Jeudy has declared for the NFL Draft. Top Running Back prospects JK Dobbins, Cam Akers, and AJ Dillon. Plus, Washington QB Jacob Eason is headed to the draft. Star Penn State Defensive End Yetur Gross-Matos is going to the draft as well.
Former Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy will be the next Dallas Cowboys head coach. McCarthy’s contract will be five years. McCarthy won a Super a bowl with Green Bay in 2011. New Orleans Saints linebackers coach Mike Nolan will be the Cowboys’s defensive coordinator.
The one thing everyone wants him to do is beat Ohio State. He has gone 0-5 versus Michigan’s hated rival down south. Harbaugh also closed a season again with back to back losses. If Michigan wants to get to the next level and move to the next tier of college football (Alabama, LSU, Clemson, Ohio State, Georgia) they may have to test their luck letting Harbaugh go. Who would replace him? A guy like Stanford Head Coach David Shaw or Iowa State Head Coach Matt Campbell. would be interesting. To get to the next level you have to beat your biggest rival. That is why you should fire Jim Harbaugh and move on.
ESPN’s number six ranked senior Jalen Suggs committed to Gonzaga on Saturday night. Suggs is the highest ranked commit in Gonzaga’s history. Suggs said, “I think Mark Few (Gonzaga’s coach) is the best coach in the country.” Suggs chose the zags over Florida, Florida State, Iowa State, and Minnesota. Suggs is also considering a season overseas instead of a college basketball career but is still fully committed to be in Spokane at Gonzaga next fall.
The Dallas Cowboys will move on from head coach Jason Garrett sources say. Jason Garrett’s Cowboys finished 8-8 for the fourth time in nine seasons and did not make the playoffs with one of the most talented rosters in the NFL. Garrett’s contract will end on January 14. Once it is official, Dallas will begin their first coaching search since 2007.
