NFL Is Getting Exactly What They Wanted This Championship Weekend

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

What a win for the NFL this championship weekend is. You could not ask for a pair of more potentially entertaining, money-making AFC and NFC championship games for this season.

Arguably the four best teams in the 2013-14 NFL season are the four teams still in playoff contention. In the AFC, you have the New England Patriots at Denver Broncos and in the NFC, you have the San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks. Not only do you have division rivals in the NFC championship game, but you have the game within the game in the AFC that is the rivalry between quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

In the AFC championship game, you should see a back-and-forth high-scoring game, while you should see a very close defensive game in the NFC. The four best teams in the NFL this season are all fighting to go to Super Bowl. In my opinion, you could not have written a better script for the league.

The most dominant North American sport is going to get richer with this championship weekend and two weeks from now on Super Bowl Sunday at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. The ratings will be sky high, and I will not be surprised at all if ratings records are broken for the reasons I have stated earlier. There are no favorites here — any of the four teams remaining have strong cases to win it all.

There is really no argument to be made as to how this championship weekend will not be a goldmine for the NFL … and that is whether the 49ers win or not.
