On the whole, Sunday’s conference championships will bring the stars out. Tampa Bay offers us, Tom Brady. Of course, Brady is the GOAT of quarterbacks. Aaron Rodgers will man the Packers Marquee. Rodgers is a Hall of Fame lock. Buffalo boasts the NFL’s top emerging quarterback in Josh Allen. While Kansas City has the ultimate NFL betting impact player in Patrick Mahomes. But that’s not all. Every team has other players that could make headlines and highlights. The 2020 AFC and NFC Championships bring the element of anything is possible. A dark horse hero is a distinct possibility.

Allen is Not Joshing Fans and Gamblers
Certainly, 2020 was a breakthrough for third-year pro-Josh Allen. Buffalo picked Allen in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft out of Wyoming. Allen exploded with 4544 yards passing and a QB rating of 107.2. Further, Allen threw 37 touchdown passes and just ten interceptions. Wide Receiver Stefon Diggs was Allen’s favorite target. Diggs proved to be sports betting asset with 127 catches, 1535 yards, and eight touchdowns.
Mahomes Impacts Games Like No Other
Of major concern is the status of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With a Super Bowl berth on the line, Mahomes will make every effort to answer the bell. The 2018 NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP from last year threw for 4740 yards and a 108.2 QB rating. Mahomes threw 38 touchdown passes with only six interceptions. He averaged 8.1 yards per pass. Most important of all, the Chiefs are never out of a game with Mahomes. He is the most remarkable comeback artist of today. And one of the best in NFL history.
The GOAT Leads the Brady Bunch to Glory
Tom Brady has already won six Super Bowl championships. But his competitive fire demands more. Brady compiled a 102.2 rating with 4633 yards passing in 2020. Additionally, he threw 40 touchdown passes and only 12 interceptions. Equivalent to that was the mental edge Brady gives the Bucs. Tampa Bay believes they can beat anyone. Brady’s arrival was the most critical missing piece. Indeed, much of this team was already built. Brady joined Tampa Bay because of its attractive supporting cast.
Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood Seeks Second Title of His Era
For all that Aaron Rodgers has accomplished, he has just one Super Bowl appearance. 2020 may be his best last chance. Rodgers was a spectacular NFL betting asset in 2020. To illustrate, he threw for 4299 yards passing and a 121.5 QB rating. Rodgers threw 48 touchdown passes and just five interceptions. Those are eye-popping numbers. However, Rodgers had a key asset helping him out.
Namely, Aaron Jones rushed for 1104 yards, 5.5 yards per rush, and nine touchdowns. It was the second season that Jones cracked the 1000-yard barrier. More emphatically, Jones could prove to be the dark horse star for Green Bay. His production complements the rest of the team.
AFC Championship Game MVP Best Bet: Josh Allen, Bills.
NFC Championship Game MVP Best Bet: Aaron Jones, Packers.
