NFL AFC history on #1 vs #2 in the champ. game


Recommended Posts

Ok here we go. Every now and then History dictates its presence on the future. #1 vs #2 AFC

 

2015  Denver#1 20---Patriots#2 18

2013  Denver#1 26---Patriots#2 16

2011  Patriots#1 23---Ravens#2 20

2007 Patriots#1 21---Chargers#2 12

2005 Broncos#1 17---Steelers#2 34

 

First off notice the rarity of the #1 and #2 team going off against each other which I find interesting in itself. Until you scroll down and see the Steelers Broncos blow out game notice how close they are. Also notice out of the last 5 times only one time has the #2 seed won. 

 

Anyhow if you were not nervous enough id give you more food for thought lol

In 2004 Pittsburgh was the #1 seed and New England was the #2 seed.

 

New England went into Pittsburgh and whacked them, 41-27

Seeing the Pats up there for all 5 is sickening then. :(

Wasn't that the game that Brady just dropped back and passed almost every play and Pittsburgh seemed almost helpless on defense to stop them?

 

Seems like that was the first time ever a team simply just said, "OK, we aren't even going to try and run the ball, we like our matchups in the passing game" and now the Bills do that routinely...

 

And guess who was the WR coach on that Patriot team?

Where did you get the seeding info? 

 

Pro-football-reference has the Steelers as the #6 seed and the Broncos as the #2 seed in 2005.

Brady and BB did that a lot.

 

I remember a regular season game against a run-stingy Vikings team where something like their first 34 plays were passes.

Yeah I know they did but I seem to remember that was kind of maybe the first time they unveiled it and it took the announcers by shock doing the game.
