AFC Championship Game PredictionsThe New England Patriots showed that they were over their late season hump. After losing four of their last six games to end the regular season, the Pats showed up big time in the Divisional Round of the AFC Playoffs to take a 27-20 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday.

Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski each returned in a big way to help Tom Brady reach the AFC Championship game for the fifth straight time. Edelman had a game-high 100 yards receiving as he was his quarterback’s top target. Meanwhile, Gronkowski burned the Chiefs with two touchdown receptions.

The Pats inclined intensely on Brady’s arm, considering that they have a plenty of wounds in the running amusement. Brady completed with 303 yards and two touchdowns; he was not sacked for the amusement. The Pats neglected to make strides through the surge, completing with only an aggregate 38 yards on 14 conveys officially missing any semblance of Dion Lewis and LeGarrette Blount.

On the off chance that New England needs to leave Denver with a ticket to the Super Bowl, then they might require some similarity of a running amusement. The Broncos have the best resistance in the alliance. They positioned first altogether and passing safeguards and third in surging.

While the Broncos have the best defense in the league, Brady has one of the better offensive teams in the NFL. After all, he dissected Denver’s defense for 280 yards passing and three touchdowns in a 30-24 overtime loss at Mile High in Week 12. He didn’t even have Edelman in that game due to an injury.

New England could explode on offense and all. But their defense will need to show up. Peyton Manning is no longer the same quarterback who once threw 55 touchdowns in a season, an NFL record. But he’s still one tough out when given the chance. The Pats will need to keep Manning on his toes with their solid pass rush. New England finished the regular season with 49 sacks, second only to Denver in the league.

Chandler Jones leads the team with 12.5 sacks in the regular season. He’ll have plenty of help from Jabaal Sheard (eight sacks), Rob Ninkovich (6.5 sacks) and Jamie Collins (5.5 sacks) who all had their contributions in the regular season. Jones is already well in playoff mode after getting the Pats’ only sack in the postseason against Kansas City.
