It’s that time again. Before you head off to whatever get-together, man cave or sports bar in which you plan on watching the NFC and AFC Championship games, settle in for the Gronkcast with Chris and Glenn Gronkowski. Each week the Gronk brothers deliver NFL picks, review the news of the week and set the stage for the upcoming weekend’s football action. Every now and then, they’re joined by a surprise guest or two. It’s all exclusive to GetMoreSports.com.
So grab your favorite beverage and pour it into your Ice Shaker. Sit back in your recliner, couch, love seat or bean bag chair and set up your potential Super Bowl opponents with the Gronks.
Before we get to the show, here’s what’s on tap this weekend:

Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints (-3, O/U: 56.5)
Kickoff: 3:05 p.m. EST at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome
New England Patriots at Kansas City Chiefs (-3, O/U: 55.5)
Kickoff: 6:40 p.m. EST at Arrowhead Stadium
Both these games are rematches from the regular season. Back in November, the Saints beat the Rams in New Orleans, 45-35. When the Pats and Chiefs met up in October, New England won, 43-40, at Gillette Stadium.
Chris and Glenn deliver picks for both games, review how they did the week before and drop some knowledge on a little NFL scuttlebutt courtesy of the NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport.
Glenn took the Patriots over the Los Angeles Chargers last week and nailed it as New England won 41-28. Glenn is 4-0 when picking his former team this season. Chris flopped on his Bulletproof pick as the Bulletproof Tour Bus stalled with Andrew Luck at the wheel. He went with the Indianapolis Colts against the Kansas City Chiefs and, needless to say, it did not come to fruition. The Chiefs won 31-13.
Chris rolls right in with his Bulletproof pick for the NFC Championship. Glenn eschews picking a winner and instead makes an Over/Under bet in the AFC title game. Glenn breaks out the meteorology and barometers and hard science to back up his view.
From there, the Gronks roll into the latest news from Ian Rappaport concerning their brother Rob Gronkowski, tight end for the New England Patriots. Needless to say, Chris and Glenn have some inside knowledge when it comes to their brother and contradict the narrative that Rapport has put out, that Rob has lost is fire and is considering retirement.
“He just isn’t getting the targets that he used to get,” Glenn said. “That’s OK. Everybody would be fine with that if you’re a player. You want to get out there and help your team. I don’t think he’s losing his fire. He’s a part of our family and we’re one of the most competitive families out there. If we were playing SORRY in the basement, we’d be yelling at each other — throwing pieces at each other, just trying to win. If you’re part of this family, you’re going out there, you’re not losing your fire. You’ve got that competitive spirit about you.”
Before the show wraps up, the guys pick the remaining games and set you up for your potential Super Bowl match up.
