2014 Playoff Predictions: Championship Round

Broncos over Patriots: The loss of Von Miller for six games is bound to negatively impact Denver's defense, but when he returns later in the year, the Broncos defense will improve by a decent margin. The Broncos offense is led by quarterback Peyton Manning, as he is surrounded by an abundance of extraordinary talent. Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will also have key players returning from injuries: Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola. As of right now, the Patriots are in serious trouble on offense due to their weak receiving corp. In yet another Peyton Manning-Tom Brady showdown, we predict Denver to win at home in a dominant fashion.

49ers over Seahawks: If this game was being played in Seattle, the Seahawks would be clear favorites to win; however, we predict the San Francisco 49ers to advance to their second consecutive Super Bowl as they beat Seattle at home. The 49ers offense consists of star weapons such as Colin Kaepernick, Frank Gore, and Anquan Boldin. The running game is one of the best in the league, while Colin Kaepernick is a dual threat passer. Both defenses are feared throughout the league, especially the front seven on either team. Seattle's offense is not at the same level as San Francisco, but quarterback Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch are both All-Pro material. This rivalry is becoming more and more heated, and a win for San Francisco in the NFC Championship game will only add fuel to the fire.

Update: We were correct about all four of the teams to make the Championship Round of the 2014 NFL Playoffs.
