Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he’s extremely confident with the Packers winning the NFC Championship at home this Sunday versus the Buccaneers, as the Packers head into Aaron Rodgers’ first-ever home conference title game as 3-point favorites.
Tampa Bay absolutely clobbered Green Bay, 38-10, way back in Week 6 during the middle of October, but just ask the Saints how meaningless past regular season matchups are. In the two Saints vs. Bucs matchups prior to Tampa Bay's head-to-head victory in the playoffs, the Saints had outscored Tampa 79-20, including a 38-3 laugher in Week 9.
Three months after Tampa's defense handed Aaron one of the worst games of Rodgers’ career in which he went 16 of 35 for 160 yards, with two interceptions and no touchdowns, and to the tune of a morbid 12.3 QBR, he’ll look to knock off a player in Tom Brady who has an immaculate 9-4 record in conference title games, compared to just 1-3 for Rodgers.
Check out the full segment above as Colin details why he’s picking Green Bay to advance to Super Bowl 55.
