The Jaguars are going to the Super Bowl!

Or so ESPN’s SPI would hope:

Jaguars 10738 32750 0

Football Outsiders is less optimistic about the Jaguars chances:

Patriots -8.5 42855 41607 0

Current tabs:

ESPN: -$1,793,730

Football Outsiders: $795,245

 

Now, in much more important news, we are getting the clash of the titans in the Bizarro World AFC Championship game (For reference, see here, and for last week, here.)

The Colts dispatched the Jets, while the Browns downed a tough Titans squad. That leaves us with the top two teams in the AFC:

Indianapolis Colts @ Cleveland Browns (Line: Browns -6 -105, Colts +6 -105)

The 17-0 Browns are the class on the NFL. Their record since coming back to Cleveland is unmatched. But they are human. This is a very strong Colts team, with an excellent defense and a solid offense. The problem is, the Browns are coached by Hue Jackson, which means in any close endgame, they have both the tactical and strategic advantage. We’ll see if the Colts can overcome that handicap.

 

In the late game, the Giants are hosting the Bears. Frankly, if the Bears pull the upset, we could be looking at a Super Bowl blowout:

Chicago Bears @ New York Giants (Line: Giants -7.5 +100, Bears +7.5 -110)

The Bears managed to squeak by the Buccaneers at home, but this is a much tougher test. While the Bears have a slight edge on offense, the Giants have much stronger defense, better special teams, and home field advantage. It’s hard to see the Bears toppling the most complete team in the NFC.
