The NFL conference championship is ready to get kicked off. The four remaining teams left are the Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The first game is the NFC Championship game, which is between the Buccaneers and the Packers. The two teams met early in the season at Tampa Bay and it did not go well for the Packers. They ended up losing with the final score being, 38 – 10. Aaron Rodgers had the worst game of his MVP season but ever since that game, he has thrown 35 touchdown passes to only three interceptions. On the other side, you have the Buccaneers who are led by one of the greatest quarterbacks ever, Tom Brady. The Buccaneers are coming off a win against the New Orlean Saints in the Divisional Round. Not only was that a game a must-win for the Bucs, but it was also a huge morale booster for them because early in the season the Saints embarrassed the Bucs twice. This game will be played at Lambeau Field, which is possibly the most dominant home stadium in the NFL mainly because of the weather always being below freezing point. The game will be a toss-up with the Packers having the number one scoring offense and the Bucs have one of the fastest defenses in the league. In the end, it comes down to who will have a better game, Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady?
The next game is the AFC championship game which is between the Bills and Chiefs. This game is the battle of young, superstar, and strong-arm quarterbacks Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes. The Bills are coming off back-to-back playoff wins for the first time in about 20 years with a win against the Colts and Ravens. Just like the NFC Championship game, these two teams met early in the season in Buffalo with a final score of 26-17 Chiefs. Ever since the week five showdown, Josh Allen has thrown 24 touchdowns and six interceptions. The Chiefs have been on a tear this season, winning 14 games and only losing two and they went undefeated on the road. The problem with the Chiefs is they have struggled to close out games when they have the chance, The Chiefs haven’t won by double-digit points since week six but nevertheless, they are still the number one rated offense. This game is all about the two quarterbacks and their performances. Who will have the better day at Arrowhead Stadium to have their team play in Super Bowl 55, Josh Allen or Parick Mahomes?
