AFC & NFC Championships Recap, Brunson For MVP, Pebble Beach

NFC Champs: Sam Darnold may win as many Super Bowls as Aaron Rodgers. Brunson says "three."

HOLBROOK, NY – The longest week of the year, the week before the Super Bowl is here… and so is today’s menu: – AFC & NFC Championships Recap, Brunson For MVP, Pebble Beach.

Championship Weekend Recap

I have no clue what happened to the Baltimore Ravens this last Sunday. Despite having the league’s most potent rushing attack, Ravens OC Todd Monken opted to run the ball just 16 times. Lamar Jackson with yet another poor performance in a big game. Zay Flowers certainly did Jackson no favors but Lamar simply has to be better than he was. As for the Chiefs, Mahomes peppered Kelce all game and controlled things the entire way.

The Lions jumped all over San Francisco in the first half. Once Brock Purdy connected with Brandon Aiyuk on a miraculously tipped ball that somehow ended up in the hands of Aiyuk, all Detroit momentum shifted in favor of San Fran. Jamhyr Gibbs would subsequently fumble and in the blink of an eye the 49ers were up 10. Many questioned Dan Campbell opting to go for multiple 4th downs in the second half, however Campbell’s aggressive style of coaching is what got Detroit to this point. The 49ers are extremely lucky to be advancing after narrowly escaping an upset at the hands of Green Bay and Detroit.

Brunson for MVP

The Knicks 9-game win streak was snapped against the Lakers last night. Despite the loss the Knicks have risen all the way to the 4 seed in the Eastern Conference, and sit just 1.5 games behind Milwaukee for the 2 seed. I thought this would be a solid team with a chance to win a playoff series or two, but they’ve reached heights Knicks fans have dreamed of for years. I don’t think it’s crazy to say the Knicks may have the deepest roster in the NBA, led by Jalen Brunson, who has been one of the best free agent signings of all time and should receive MVP votes this season.

Pebble Beach

Defending U.S. open champion Wyndham Clark set the course record at Pebble Beach with a twelve under par 60 to take a one shot lead over Ludvig Aberg at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am. With heavy rain and wind in the forecast for Sunday, a Monday finish is likely for the tournament.

That’s it for me. Comment below if you like and come back tomorrow for Junoir Blaber.
