JJ After Darks NFL Unlocks of the Week: 2021 Conference Championship Weekend


JJ and The Maestro were heads up on three games last week…and JJ lost them all, which means we head into the final three games of the season with a dead tie atop the Unlocks standings!

This week, they’re heads up in the NFC game, so someone will enter Super Bowl LV hoping to hold off the other from tying to claim a solo championship…two in a row for Harris Allen?

First, the current standings (last week in parenthesis):
JJ 48-45-2 (1-3)
The Maestro: 48-45-2 (4-0)
Fleegs: 42-51-2 (2-2)
Hoff: 14-14 in limited duty (2-2)
Rosenberg: 22-26-1 in limited duty (3-1)

And now, JJ’s Unlocks for Conference Championship Weekend!

Tampa Bay (+3.5) at Green Bay: “Can’t wait to see Brady vs. Rodgers in the playoffs for the first time. Everyone loves the Packers, but I don’t – I think Tampa Bay is winning this game! From a physicality standpoint on defener, they match up well with what Green Bay wants to do, and we saw that in the first matchup. Plus, Brady is not the typical Florida quarterback going into cold weather – he’s been there and done that, and is the king of conference championships! They could have a couple mismatches in that Green Bay secondary. I don’t like betting against Tom Brady in these games, and I don’t think I even need the 3.5 points.”

Kansas City (-3) vs. Buffalo: “The Bills have been a thorn in my side all year, but I ain’t hoping on board, because Patrick Mahomes is playing. You can take the trends of not covering numbers, but the Chiefs continue to find a way. I don’t think Buffalo has the answer for Tyreek Hill or Travis Kelce; KC’s defense doesn’t wow me, but they make big plays when they need to. I think this game will have a lot of points, but I’m laying the three on the champs.”
