Well, it’s finally here folks. The big game is this Sunday Night 4th February 2018 and here at Gridiron and Gravy, we could not be more excited for the game.

Myself, however, will be watching this game through analytical eyes, watching to see if my predictions here come to life in the biggest game on the planet.

Tennessee Titans 14 New England Patriots 35
Next week, the season truly begins for the New England Patriots. Nowadays, it is a foregone conclusion that the Patriots make it to the AFC Championship Game and this year, they coasted through the divisional round in style, destroying the Titans 35-14.
Well, that was something special in the first week of the NFL Playoffs. We saw comebacks, great defensive displays and a concussed Quarterback playing through the 4th quarter. It was a special time for the fans of the Buffalo Bills who have seen their team play in a Playoff game for the first time in just under 18 years. Lets delve into five takeaways of the weekends action.
New York Jets 0 – 23 Denver Broncos
There is a great quote in the classic rockumentary “Spinal Tap” – It’s such a fine line between stupid and clever
While not changing a huge amount the Broncos halted an eight game losing streak with a shutout of the Jets, a fine line indeed.
The defence was still good, the special teams played a tidy game and a few of the errors that had derailed the offence were turned into positive plays.
That was it, but it produced a night and day difference in attitude and confidence.
The train keeps on rolling for the Chargers after a comfortable 30-13 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. Next stop for Anthony Lynn’s boys, a season-defining game at Kansas City on Saturday night. That game was only made huge though due to the Bolts taking care of business against Washington as they moved to 7-6 with their fourth win in a row.
