There are only four teams left, which means only two games to pick this weekend. Piece of cake, right?

The Turf Writers Room Picks Championship Weekend

Estimated Reading Time: 2 Minutes

The NFL is down to just four teams playing for a trip to beautiful Tampa Bay (well one of them will get a trip to Tampa regardless).

It’s championship weekend, and the members of The Turf writers room are picking this weekend’s two games.

First up, a recap of the Divisional Round picks. Congrats to Joe Danbusky and Terry Cudmore, who both nailed all four games this past weekend.

Joe and Terry correctly predicted that the top seeds in the AFC would hold serve, the Packers would outgun the Rams, and the Bucs would end Drew Brees‘s season, and likely his career.

Unfortunately, the perfect slate wasn’t enough to get either of them to a better record than 6-4 for the playoffs.

Katie Pierce leads our pack of writers with an 8-2 mark in the postseason and will look to solidify her lead with wins by Buffalo and Tampa Bay.

Andrew Mark Wilhelm and Justin Colombo are one game back of Katie, and while Wilhelm will be unable to gain any ground this weekend, Justin is backing the Chiefs and the Packers and has the potential to take over first place.

Overall, six writers are on the Green Bay bandwagon and seven are rooting for Buffalo in the AFC. The most popular Super Bowl pick is Green Bay vs Buffalo, with four of the ten experts going in that direction.

The NFL championship weekend kicks off on Sunday, January 24th at 3:05 PM when the top-seeded Packers host Tom Brady and the #5 seed Tampa Bay Buccaneers. At 6:40 PM, the #2 seed Buffalo Bills will travel to Kansas City to face the top-seed and defending Super Bowl Champion Chiefs.

The winners will meet on February 7th at Raymond James Stadium in Super Bowl LV, with kickoff just after 6:30 PM.
