SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – As we head into this weekend’s divisional round of the NFL Playoffs, we are taking our predictions to the Conference Championship round and on to the Super Bowl.

Could Andy Reid be on his way to a Gatorade bath? Or will Aaron Rodgers’ playoff experience take the Green Bay Packers all the way?

The KSL Sports team is in disagreement about what Super Bowl LIV will look like.

Matchups for the conference championships will be decided this weekend with the Baltimore Ravens taking on the Tennesee Titans and the Houston Texans battling it out with the Kansas City Chiefs.

As for the NFC, the Seattle Seahawks travel to Green Bay to face the Packers while the 49ers are up against the Minnesota Vikings.

Scott Mitchell: Green Bay Packers

The former NFL quarterback looked to the quarterbacks to decide his champion. While Lamar Jackson is really good and flashy, Rodgers has one thing over him – experience.

Mitchell predicted Rodgers’ experience to carry the Packers past the Ravens to become Super Bowl Champions.

Alex Kirry: Baltimore Ravens

Alex Kirry hosts KSL Unrivaled with Mitchell so conversations will get heated as the two picked the same matchup, but a different champion.

Kirry put it simply, “The AFC Champ Ravens are too much for the Pack to handle.”

Tom Hackett: San Fransisco 49ers

Not only is Tom’s punting, Australian, Utah counterpart Mitch Wishnowsky on the team, his fantasy tight end for two years running, George Kittle, is sure to have an impact.

Thanks to the strength of Wishnowsky’s leg, Hackett predicted the 49ers will become world champions.

Sam Farnsworth: Kansas City Chiefs

The Ravens don’t make this top three. KSL Sports’ Sam Farnsworth predicted a battle between Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson.

In the end, Andy Reid’s Chiefs will prevail by two touchdowns, according to Farnsworth.

Jeremiah Jensen: Baltimore Ravens

Host of Sportsbeat, Jeremiah Jensen, made an analytical pick. Only the 49ers and Ravens both rank top five in total offense and total defense.

In the end, the Ravens will become Super Bowl Champions thanks to Lamar Jackson’s uncanny ability to make plays.
