I'm trying to be as realistic as possible haha. The Ox should get a postseason win eventually, hopefully...

Here's the next round!

1966-67 NFA Semifinals - Boston Gaels at Detroit Bombers

Coming into the semifinals this was the matchup to watch, Boston was coming off a big win against the high powered Tigers, and the Bombers spent the week relaxing and preparing. The first half was a big back and forth affair. Boston struck first taking a 3-0 lead, but Detroit would retaliate with a TD of their own, and towards the end of the first quarter CB Dan Simmons would intercept a QB Stephan Hall pass to set up Boston in good territory. Boston would score right of the gates, in the beginning of the second quarter, taking the lead back. The rest of the half was a bit slower, but before the half would end, MVP RB Charley Rodgers would find the end zone one more time, giving Detroit a 14-10 lead going into half time.  

If there was a switch to turn off the Bombers offense, Boston had found it, because coming out of the half and throughout the rest of the game, Detroit would rack up 3 turnovers, several penalties, and would fail to score again. Boston on the other hand, led by the usual duo of McCloud and Parks, would score a whopping 28 points in the second half, trampling Detroit in an offensive performance nobody saw coming. By the end of the night the Gaels were walking off the field big winners, headed to their third straight Championship Bowl appearance, after upsetting the 1 seeded Bombers; 38-14.

1966-67 NFA Semifinals - Cleveland Rangers at Philadelphia Hornets

The second wildcard matchup of the afternoon pinned two up and coming teams together, the Hornets, led by phenom QB Oscar Washington and the surprise Rangers, led by QB Kurtis Mueller. The game started off much slower than the previous game, with each defense shining. The first quarter would end tied at 0, however the Rangers were inching toward the end zone, looking for a score. As the second quarter started they would do just that. Cleveland would get first blood as RB Joshua Barlow would break through into the end zone. Philadelphia would attempt to respond but would get knocked back hard. Washington in particular, when MOR DE Leo Smitts laid him flat on his back, causing him to cough up the ball for the first turnover of the game. Fortunately for the Hornets, Cleveland's following field goal attempt would miss, but Smitts would keep up the effort. Both teams would stay nearly scoreless for the rest of the half before Washington would connect with WR Florence Short for a big 45 yard TD to tie things up before the break.  

The second half would be just as hard fought on both sides of the ball as in the first. Cleveland would hit a field goal on their first drive of the quarter and the Hornets would follow suit. DT Don Larkin would help the Hornets stop the Rangers and force them to punt, but LB George Pope would match him. It wasn't before in the middle of the fourth quarter, that we would get a clear winner. Cleveland, following another successful field goal attempt, would force another turnover, this time picking off one of Washington’s passes, taking it nearly all the way back for the score. They would eventually score and put them up by 2 possessions. This would be too much for the Hornets to handle as they would go the way of the Bombers and also get upset in front of their home crowd. The final score was 20-10.

Let’s.  F**king. Go. Rangers. (My Dad’s side of my family is all from there, so that’s why I like them) Cleveland shuts out Boston. Just kidding they still win 28-27

Nice!  Looking forward to see how this one plays out and to see which of these Cinderellas gets that glass slipper/championship!   Betting on the Gaels here, as they just feel like a "Luck of the Irish" type team, considering that they barely got into the playoffs in the first place and then had to win dramatically over Los Angeles.

Here it is, the Champions Bowl! First off, here's the field the two teams played on.

1966-67 NFA Champions Bowl - Boston Gaels vs Cleveland Rangers

The 21st edition of the NFA Champions Bowl saw a matchup of the young, team oriented Rangers vs the reigning champs, the historic Gaels. Much like the Rangers previous game, their defense would start out as the star of the show. MOR Leo Smitts would immediately make his presence known with a big sack on QB Donald McCloud. Boston would struggle to fight back against Cleveland’s defense. Punting on their first 3 drives. Cleveland on the other hand would jump to an early 10-0 lead, not punting yet. However they did miss yet another field goal attempt. Boston would finally break through and hit a field goal towards the end of the half, making the score 10-3 after some great running by Parks. Cleveland would heave one down field that would bobble around a couple defenders’ hands before falling to the ground to end the half.  

The second half would be just as one sided as the first. Cleveland would score their second TD of the night and not look back. On defense they would force a turnover which would lead to another 7 points on the scoreboard. Boston once again couldn't keep up, managing only 1 touchdown before the night was over, however the extra point would be blocked, as the defensive performance from Cleveland was just that dominant. Cleveland wouldn't let you the gas, scoring one more time before claiming the title. The final score would be 31-9 and DE Leo Smitts would take home MVP honors after being the captain for the outstanding team defensive performance. He would also be the first true rookie to win the award.

Hopefully this won't be Cleveland's last sports championship in this universe.
