Just three more games remain in the 2018 season, and while I’m not totally invested due to the disappointing way the Chicago Bears bowed out of the playoffs, it’s still the National Football League. I’ll definitely be watching both games today and the Super Bowl in two weeks.

Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints - 2:05 pm (Central) on FOX

I picked the Rams as my NFC Champ before the season started, then picked the Saints to win this game earlier this week. I honestly think this game could go either way. Drew Brees hasn’t looked like his usual self down the stretch, but he could get hot at any time.

New England Patriots at Kansas City Chiefs - 5:40 pm (Central) on CBS

I picked the Patriots earlier this week because I think they have a more complete team, and I think they’ll figure out a way to stymie Patrick Mahomes. Plus they have the whole “underdog” thing to rally around now.

My personal preference for the Super Bowl would be Rams vs. Chiefs, but I don’t think that will happen.

While you’re waiting for the game to kickoff, give my latest podcast a listen!
