Local Buzz
Joey Sims, a Sophomore at Lafayette High school, haS strong opinions about the New York Giants playing the New England Patriots on the 10th of October. “They did exactly as I thought. Daniel Jones is still good, but he still needs a lot of work. The Giants just need their offence to be healthy and for their defense to improve,”he said. He furthermore stated, “I think it will be the New England Patriots for the AFC. It’s a little unclear right now but I think the Green Bay Packers will go for the NFC.”


Andy Dalton, the starting quarterback for the Bengals, being drilled by an interviewer after a tough span of games sprouting discussions of his benching.

Lafayette Senior Sean Long, a New England Patriots fan, had this to say about the game that took place on the 10th of October against the New York Giants. “I thought they could’ve been a bit more dominant and establish the run game. Brady showed his old age in the first half.” Regarding Sony Michel and the Patriot’s run game he said, “I think Sony Michel did well but I like James White more because he is more versatile and faster.” As for the Superbowl? “The New England Patriots will most likely go to the Superbowl and win but I’m not sure who will go to the Superbowl for the NFC.”

Based on current statistics, the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs will meet in the AFC Championship game, and it seems probable that the New England Patriots will win and go to the Superbowl. In the NFC, it seems most likely that the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers are going to play each other in the NFC Championship game, with the San Francisco 49ers to win.

As for the Superbowl itself, the New England Patriots will most likely win. With their legendary quarterback Tom Brady leading the way, and with their defense currently rated the best defense in the league, they are set to reign spureme over Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers. The San Francisco 49ers will probably play a good game and be a problem for the New England Patriots but a win is doubtful. The 49er defense isn’t the greatest, and with the lack of star players they just don’t have what it takes. Final prediction: the New England Patriots will have a 14-2 season with a Superbowl victory.
