As we saw in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, quarterbacks are ultimately going to decide the outcome of games. This is going to be even more true as we head into the conference championship games.
With Colin Kaepernick and Matt Ryan making their first trips to the conference championships, our trust has yet to be earned fully on the NFC side of the playoffs. However, both quarterbacks looked fantastic in their respective divisional matchups and gained our trust with exceptional performances.
In the AFC, we have a rematch of last year's game between Tom Brady and Joe Flacco. These two quarterbacks are extremely familiar with each other, and both should have plenty of confidence heading into Sunday's game.
Today we are going to break down just how much trust we have in each quarterback heading into the conference championship games. We'll factor in playoff performances from recent seasons, as well as how well each quarterback has played through the first two rounds of the playoffs.
