The biggest difference between the top teams in the AFC and the NFC in the National Football league is the age of their starting quarterbacks.
In the NFC, veterans Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Mathew Stafford and Jimmy Garoppolo are the starters for Tampa Bay, Green Bay, Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49ers.
In the AFC, you have the really good young quarterbacks in Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City, Josh Allen in Buffalo and Joe Burrow in Cincinnati. Behind them are Justin Herbert of the Los Angeles Chargers and Mac Jones of the New England Patriots.
In the NFC ,you have two first round picks in Trey Lance in San Francisco- and Jordan Love in Green Bay, sitting on the sidelines.
After watching six unbelievable playoff games over the last two weekends, these great games will be part of the playoffs for years to come.
Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl is hard to believe, but the paths that took them there was fun to watch. I am hoping the LA Rams win, with Matthew Stafford as their quarterback. He was in Detroit on a bad team for a long time. He did a lot of charity work in Detroit while he was there. Let’s just hope for another great game.
And just a reminder that the Ripley Wolves start their playoffs at home this Friday against Shelburne and the Kincardine Bulldogs have a home game Friday night against Goderich and Saturday night against Wingham.
