Scott Shapiro’s AFC Championship Game Analysis – New England Patriots at Kansas City Chiefs

Championship Sunday continues with another rematch of a high-scoring contest that took place during the middle of the 2018 NFL season. The difference, though, is that the loser of the regular season showdown is now the host with New England visiting Kansas City with a Super Bowl berth on the line.

Scott Shapiro’s NFL Playoffs Selections and Analysis- Saturday’s Divisional Round

After a Wild Card round that was kind to those who backed underdogs, another great slate of playoff games is on tap this weekend in the National Football League.

Dallas Cowboys (+7.0) at Philadelphia Eagles The NFC East has not been one of the stronger divisions in the NFL over the first-half of the season which has left the door wide-open for the defending [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Week 6 NFL 4-Pack

Following a dominating 34-13 win from the defending champion Eagles we head to a challenging Sunday slate in Week 6 NFL action. Here is my Week 6 NFL 4-Pack: Chicago Bears at Miami Dolphins (O/U 42) The Bears come off their bye week feeling good as they head to South Florida with a record of 3-1. When we last saw Chicago, second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky had his best game as a pro throwing 6 touchdowns in a 48-10 rout of [...]

2018 Kansas City Chiefs Preview – Mahomes Is The Man Now

by DS Williamson On the first step towards a third straight, AFC West title, Andy Reid decided to do what was best for the team and traded incumbent starter Alex Smith to the nation's capitol.  That choice opened the door for second-year QB Patrick Mahomes. Just how good is Mahomes, a former first rounder? Also, do the 2018 Kansas City Chiefs have the defense that can lead to another AFC West Division title? This is the often overlooked team when it [...]
