AFC Championship – Cleveland Browns vs New England Patriots
The AFC Championship featured two 2K OLF veterans and longtime rivals, Coach Max Farias and his Cleveland Browns versus Coach Nguyen and his New England Patriots. The Browns were the laughing stock of the league until Coach Farias made them a legitimate contender.

Both clubs were held to the least amount of points that they scored for the entire season.
2K OLF Super Bowl 13 – New England Patriots vs Philadelphia Eagles
The 2K Online Franchise Super Bowl XIII featured the #3 NFC seed Philadelphia Eagles and the #2 AFC seed Patriots. Viewers believed that the game was going to be a shootout due to both team’s ability to score at will. The Eagles also had the league’s MVP, Carson Wentz, healthy and ready to compete. However, the Patriots were able to force turnovers early in the game that helped led Coach Nguyen to his third championship. The captain of the defense, Mychal Kendricks, was proud of his team for showing up in the biggest stage of the sport. “We had a gameplan going into the bowl. I thought we executed really well. I think we shook Wentz after the first interception.”
The 2K OLF Super Bowl MVP was Tom Brady, who threw for 401 yards and three touchdowns. Brady shared his thoughts about the award. “Awesome victory. This will go down as one of the best seasons in my career. The defense put us in great situations and that led his to score. We had guys who were catching every catch-able ball. It was a great win victory.”
Season 13 conclusion
It was a bittersweet season for Coach Nguyen and his Patriots, as they faced adversity throughout the season with injuries, star players teasing retirement, and the direction of the franchise. The media also questioned if Coach Nguyen can still coach despite winning two championships earlier in his 2KOLF career. “I see what the media talks about here and there. I also hear it around, but the talking outside doesn’t phase me. The team stuck through it all and I happened to be the glue that kept everyone focused. We proved that we can still win over here in Foxborough.”Coach Nguyen encouraged his team to enjoy the victory, but once the off-season is over that it will be time to get back to work.
The defending 2K OLF Super Bowl champions will open season 14 with the new-looked Dallas Cowboys.
