So the National Championship game will be Alabama Crimson Tide vs Clemson Tigers. The same two teams met in this game last year.

Nice. I backed 'Bama early in the season. Might have to lay off now.

Ohio St showed why the shouldn't been in the Playoffs.
As for Alabama, looked patchy on Offense but when you have a Defense like that, it generally takes care of things.

So the guy who the 49ers preferred to Jarryd Hayne - Reggie Bush - finishes the year with negative yards on 12 carries.

First time any RB with more than 10 carries has done that for a few decades.

Watching Rodgers when he's on fire is amazing. Like Jordan playing basket ball or Woods when he was hitting golf balls only.

Clemson win the National Championship with a touchdown in the final seconds.

'twas an exciting 4th quarter.

Alabama were dominant early in the game but Clemson came back to take the lead late in the 4th quarter only to see the Crimson Tide hit the front again with a Jalen Hurts TD. Then we saw that TD by Clemson to win the game.

Cracking finish.

Before today Alabama under Saban were 97-0 when leading by 10 in the 4th Q.

Green Bay win 34 - 31 with a field goal by Mason Crosby in the final second. It took a great play to get them in position to attempt the Field Goal. An amazing throw by Aaron Rodgers & an amazing catch by Jared Cook.

They now travel to Atlanta to contest the NFC Championship game. It will be the last game at the Georgia Dome.

From 56 yards no less, after a time-out cancelled his successful 51 yard FG.

Pittsburgh defeat Kansas City 18 - 16 despite scoring no touchdowns to 2 by the Chiefs.

The Steelers now go to Foxborough to play the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game.

TD Atlanta.

Scored by Devonta Freeman who has probably been the most dangerous player on either offense.

Fark it. Was advised to back one of the RBs for MVP so I went with Blount. Freeman (ATL RB) has a TD and 71 yards rushing with 4 mins left. Blount has 16 yards and a fumble.

Pick 6 for ATL.

Roger Goodell is doing a jig.

TD to the Patriots & then they make the two point conversion.

New England have a chance of snatching victory with just under 6 minutes to go.

Idiotic play by Ryan to get sacked outside of FG range.

Some crazy play by the Falcons stuffed up their chance of being close enough for a field goal attempt.

So the Patriots get the ball back with 3:30 left on the clock. They need a TD & two point conversion to tie the game.

Lucky catch by Edelman puts the Pats in great position. It should have been intercepted & some fortunate deflections meant Edelman was able to make the catch.

What a choke by Atlanta.

Pats win.

I heard Zat on the radio yesterday talking about it all- he'll need to change his undies right about now.
