The week 11 match involving the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs went down in the report textbooks.
It was the first time in NFL background that a workforce scored 50 points and continue to misplaced. The match finished in favor of the Super Bowl-bound Rams, which won 54-51.
It was the worst defensive match I can consider of and however 1 of the best games I have watched, next only to the 2008 Super Bowl where by the Giants defeat the undefeated Patriots 17-14 with that well known helmet catch by Giants vast receiver David Tyree.
I heard an area Tv personality say it was all about this and that matchup for the Chiefs to defeat the Patriots. That is mistaken.
Any time Tom Brady is on the discipline, it is all about halting him from stepping up in the pocket. Brady can thread a needle. He would finish passes to the towel boy by building the ball stick in his helmet. It doesn’t make a difference who Tom Brady has on the discipline or who is guarding that particular person. All that matters is how much time he has.
Each time he dropped again with any quantity of time in the AFC Championship match, I knew the Chiefs had been in difficulties.
I could not discover any stats, but I wager there is a strong correlation involving seconds (not throws) that Brady has the ball and the Patriots profitable.
But where by the Chiefs went mistaken and the New York Giants went ideal in two Super Bowl wins in excess of the Patriots is flustering Brady. The Giants had a stacked defensive line both equally times — 2008 and 2012.
Brady did not have time to select apart the defense.
My father is a Giants supporter and so was his father. Obviously, I dislike the Cowboys, Eagles and Tom Brady. Just after the several phone calls going versus the Chiefs, I’d envision Chiefs Nation feels the same way.
Which is why you should really check out.
Aaron Donald, the reigning defensive player of the year, is a monster. Just one opinion piece on nfl.com referred to as the frontrunner for a different defensive title a “brick wall with ninja skills, Donald is basically unblockable.”
Patriots can dial up any plan they want to keep Donald in verify. He will split by it with all 280 pounds he carries at a 4.68-next 40-garden sprint.
So, eat wings, be merry and check out the sack leader (20.5) knock Brady to the turf.
Rams win 27-17.
Super Bowl LIII is on Sunday. Kickoff is 5:30 p.m.
