Predicting studs and duds for NFL conference championship games

Sportsnaut Logo By Rachel Wold of Sportsnaut | Slide 1 of 9: Leonard Fournette and Tom Brady

We are down to four teams left standing in the NFL postseason. The New England Patriots will host the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Minnesota Vikings will travel to take on the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFL Conference Championship Games this weekend.

We have to assume the Jags are prepared to pull tricks out of their hats to foil the league’s No. 1 passer from 2017. Tom Brady awaits a tough test of his abilities. Perhaps the future Hall of Fame quarterback deals Jacksonville some challenges of his own.

Who would have ever predicted that two quarterbacks former head coach Jeff Fisher worked with would battle for the NFC title? Both Case Keenum and Nick Foles face two of the top-ranked defenses from 2017. Will the underdog Eagles find a way to prevail?

By the end of Sunday’s action, we will know which two teams will play in Super Bowl LII. But in the meantime, here are our stud and dud predictions for the Conference Championship Games.
