Those Bengals Cats Are Now Super Bowl LVI Predators
The penultimate weekend of the regular NFL season brought shock winners of the AFC North as the Cincinnati Bengals turned over a 17-28 halftime deficit against the Kansas City Chiefs with a rousing comeback that culminated in a late field goal win. Even the most die-hard Bengals fans wouldn’t dare have predicted or believed what was to come in the season ahead after recent years of struggle.
There’s no fluke about it though as the season goes on, one month ago everyone around the NFL was focused on the Arizona Cardinals being this year’s ‘surprise package’.
They’ve been well and truly usurped by the Bengals who’ve got their bite back in the NFL for the first time since winning the division in 2015. After Joe Burrow set quarterback records last week, it was Ja’Marr Chase’s turn as a first-year wide receiver who clocked up a rookie receiving record with 11 receptions, 266 yards and three touchdowns.
Zac Taylor’s explosive Cincinnati Bengals team are now primetime this NFL season and +2800 with Everygame for Super Bowl LVI.
Where Does This Leave Our Kansas City Chiefs Bet Slips?
I’m not overly concerned yet, after all, they’d won eight games prior as we loaded up our Super Bowl LVI bets with great prices. Apart from losing the No. 1 AFC seeding for now it might be the kick in the butt that’s needed to sharpen focus for the coming weeks.
The Kansas City Chiefs rightly occupy second favoritism in the Super Bowl LVI market at +550 with Bovada.
Tennessee Titans Now AFC No.1 Seeds
The silver lining to the Kansas City Chiefs losing No. 1 seeding on the AFC is that they’ve been replaced by our other Super Bowl LVI selection, the Tennessee Titans.
It would certainly be beneficial for our cause that one of the two selections to get a week off before the final push and the Tennessee Titans price of +2000 with Everygame is still fine for anyone who missed originally.
Will It Be the Chargers or Raiders for the Last AFC Playoff Spot?
Assuming the Indianapolis Colts beat the Jacksonville Jaguars as they should, the match between the L.A. Chargers and the Las Vegas Raiders in a primetime slot will complete the AFC picture.
Home advantage for the Las Vegas Raiders makes this a hard one to call and one to be enjoyed, though, I feel the Chargers have the potential for a deeper run if they negotiate this difficult banana skin.
Was It the Perfect Time for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Get Rid of Their Rotting Apple?
Tampa Bay Buccaneers, wide receiver Antonio Brown went into Sunday’s game with the New York Jets, on the brink of some huge bonuses for touchdowns and yards. With the Bucs trailing by two touchdowns, he had a huge meltdown, stripped off and left the field of play.
This may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for the Bucs to get a rotten apple out of the barrel before the playoffs, as Bruce Arians ruled out his further participation by declaring, “he is no longer a Buc”.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers team resolve will likely be strengthened further after Sunday though the offensive line looks rather depleted due to injuries before Brown’s exit and their price of +950 at Betonline reflects a drift in their price.
Kingsbury Stops the Arizona Cardinals From Falling off the Kliff in Dallas
The Arizona Cardinals Super Bowl LVI ship appeared to be sinking in recent weeks but thankfully, Kliff Kingsbury’s charges won a tricky away game at the Dallas Cowboys despite a late rally from America’s favorite.
Kyler Murray was back to his best with a dominant display at quarterback and that bodes well for the playoffs. Ironically, they are projected to be against the Dallas Cowboys again but there will be plenty of changes likely so any projections can be ignored for the time being.
Green Bay Packers Lock Up Nfc No.1 Seeding
We know the one team that has a bye in the NFC and that’s the Green Bay Packers. It’s been a strong finale for Aaron Rodger’s career and with next week’s regular-season fixture against the Detroit Lions, it could mean two weeks to recharge their batteries.
The other factor to mention about Green Bay Packers is their unbeaten home record and that’s another huge positive in their favor before making their final push in the coming weeks.
With only two matches to win for the NFC Conference, it may be prudent to add them to our NFC perm, but we will wait to see how the draw pans out first.
The Miami Dolphins Are to Continue Dominating the New England Patriots as They Do!
For many years now, this divisional AFC East fixture is one I’ve looked to oppose the New England Patriots in. Given their current playoff position being assured while only holding small divisional and minuscule AFC No.1 seed chances, I expect them to have one eye on the play-offs and be vulnerable to their old rivals.
The Miami Dolphins have loved nothing more than to spite Bill Belichick and the Patriots over the years and unusually hold a winning record against them which is hugely creditable.
The Dolphins won their NFL week 1 encounter in New England and now is the perfect opportunity to bookend a very respectable season in style at +215 with GTbets.
