Pack And Bills To The Title Tilts Notes

January 17, 2021

Yesterday, both and first, the Green Bay Packers (once (13-0) in home ‘offs games and now (20-5) and Buffalo Bills, now the winning team in 11 of their last 12 home such games, won their “slots” tilts by 14 points to advance to their respective conference title tilts.

I think Aaron Rodgers is tremendous and also “plurality favor” the Pack to title, however the “too much emotion” and also the “in game kibbitzing” with members of the other team by the cerebral, future Jeopardy host, quarterback, is annoying.

Beating the 7 point underdog Rams by a (32-18) count (ever such a score in an NFL ‘offs game, any NFL game? certainly never in Pack or Rams’ playoff annals), is not even the bare minimum for this G.B. team.

Having lost three straight and four of their last 5 NFC title tilts, the Pack, 10 time “won a title game,” NFL champions, all with a Democrat in office as U.S. President, which will be the case this year, need to at least make the 55th Supe, which will be played in Tampa, Florida, 3 weeks hence.

Rodgers, in this the week the widow of Fred “Mr.” Rogers passed on, threw 2 TD passes and non bet by me, ran for another. It was the first run touchdown by a G.B. quarterback, since the greatest Pack and maybe any team’s quarterback, Bart Starr’s dramatic game winning one vs Dallas, in the ’67 NFL Title Game/”The Ice Bowl.”

Now to the Bills, (11-2) in NFL related home ‘offs tilts and (12-3) counting AFL related (only) such games.

They sputtered and had way too many conservative calls and were tied (3-3) at the half, with the vastly over rated Ravens’ kicker “Just” Tucker missing 2 field goals, making it a total of 3 in these ‘offs. He is not, or anywhere near the greatest kicker ever, but that does not stop the “hype machine.”

Buffalo ought not do that next week, especially if there is a redux of the first AFL or AFC game with a Supe bid on the line, some 54 years later at K.C. vs the defending champion but, “no coverers” of 8 straight (0-7-1 ATS, (7-1) straight up in those), Chiefs. 

That also applies if “Buff” gets to host “near by,” but never a big rival, Cleveland and any opponent for that matter.

Certainly out of shape, sit under the blanket, me does realize the conditions were bad last night but …..

After the Bills finally got in the end zone to lead (10-3), it was from his own end zone, that Lamon Johnson took off and ran 101 yards for an interception of a Lamar Jackson pass (talk about over rated, Jackson’s picture is among those next to the phrase in the dictionary–I know it was cold but again …..)  score, that with the extra point (GB failed on 2, one a “2,” while the Rams converted on a “2” but what does that mean?!—Alas what does nice odds on FG for first score in both tilts and 15 to 1 draw/Bills mean? As “War” sang regarding any good about war, something the military controlled U.S. often forgets, “absolutely,” or let’s just say “nothing.”)  accounted for the final points in a (17-3) Bills win, in a “blanket under,” vs the Ravens.
