The Official Drinking Games For The AFC And NFC Championship Games This Weekend

The Official Drinking Games For the AFC and NFL Championship Games This Weekend

You’re probably thinking – why do we need a drinking game for football? Obviously, we will already be crushing beers while watching in our sweatpants. True, but let me give you some reasons:

1. It’s a proven fact that drinking games make everything from The Bachelor to Presidential Debates better.

2. It’s possible – albeit unlikely – that one or both of these games could be a blowout, so you need some reason to stay invested.

3. It’s a Sunday afternoon/evening, and you have to work tomorrow, and maybe the tiny little part of your brain that is semi-responsible is telling you that it’s not a good idea to take that shot. You need a drinking game to override that little bastard.

I’m sure I could think of more reasons, but frankly, do you really need them? Just play along, you wimp.

AFC Conference Championship
New England Patriots vs. Denver Broncos
Sunday, January 24, 3:05 PM EST on CBS

Take a drink each time…

• The camera pans to Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft.

• C.J. Anderson or Ronnie Hillman rush for more than 10 yards.

• Referee Ed Hochuli flexes – that guy is jacked.

• Jim Nantz and Phil Simms wonder aloud if this is the last ever Brady/Manning matchup.

• They go to Mike Carey for his opinion.

Finish your beer if…

• A ruling on the field is overturned.

• Deflategate is mentioned.

• Tracy Wolfson says someone’s return is “questionable.”

• Gronk scores a touchdown (and you must spike the can too).

Do a shot if…

• Bill Belichick wears something other than a ratty sweatshirt.

• Tom Brady actually manages to run more than five yards (just because I love him doesn’t mean I’m not aware of his flaws).

• Brock Osweiler is actually shown.

• Someone you are watching with unintentionally hums/sings the song from Peyton’s Nationwide commercials.

• A kick off is returned for a touchdown.

NFC Conference Championship
Arizona Cardinals vs. Carolina Panthers
Sunday, January 24, 6:40 PM EST on FOX

Take a drink each time…

• It sounds like Troy Aikman has just been vaping.

• The words “Cam Newton” and “MVP” are said in the same sentence.

• The words “Carson Palmer” and “remarkable comeback” are said in the same sentence.

• There’s an aerial shot of Bank of America Stadium.

• Larry Fitzgerald makes a catch.

• That annoying FOX football robot shows up.

Finish your beer if…

• Mike Pereira disagrees with the ruling on the field.

• Someone — anyone — dabs.

• Erin Andrews flips her hair during a sideline interview.

• A challenge flag is thrown.

Do a shot if…

• An interception is returned for a touchdown.

• A Bruce Arians/Tony Soprano comparison is made.

• One person you are watching with says how much they hate Joe Buck.

Happy game day, my friends!
