This Sunday, the four remaining teams in the NFL playoffs will be cut in half. Two will move on with all the excitement and hope that football can offer, while another pair of squads will go home devastated.
In the AFC, the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots will battle it out for the right to represent the conference. Denver is hoping to lock up its sixth Super Bowl appearance, the most of any team in the AFC other than the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England who also have seven. Should the Patriots win, it would be their eighth Super Bowl contest, setting a record.
Maybe there will be a smattering of people on here who actually want Denver to win because it represents the AFC West, but not this guy. The Broncos have to go down, and it would be hilarious if they do it on their home turf. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to be cackling at any Denver fan. After all, we are currently the kings of choke.
Some might say rooting for Denver is the right call. If the Broncos win it all, maybe Peyton Manning will retire. A Chiefs fan can dream.
Who will you be rooting for?
