Here’s a preview of this weekend’s Conference Championship games of the 2013 NFL playoffs courtesy of Coors Light–the game’s most refreshing beer.
After plenty of excitement from the first two rounds of the 2013 NFL playoffs, there’s plenty to look forward to this weekend as the Atlanta Falcons square off against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship and the Baltimore Ravens return to Foxboro for a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship against the New England Patriots.
With the way they played against the Green Bay Packers, the argument can be made that no offense looks as dangerous at this point in the postseason than the 49ers as Colin Kaepernick set an NFL playoff record last weekend by rushing for 181 yards to go along with two rushing touchdowns. Combine his ability at quarterback along with San Francisco’s dominant defense–there’s no reason why this team can’t pull off the upset at the Georgia Dome against an Atlanta team that almost lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the Divisional Round before Matt Ryan led a late drive to setup the game-winning field goal by Matt Bryant with eight seconds left.
As for the Ravens, they hope to continue their surprise playoff run as well after coming from behind against the Denver Broncos in the final minute of regulation before winning the game in overtime. Joe Flacco continues to make a name for himself as an elite quarterback after picking up his fifth career road playoff win in the Divisional Round and he certainly will be motivated to take advantage of a Patriots’ defense that ranked 25th during the regular season when it came to stopping the passing game.
