Last week I went 3-1
I told you so: Ravens over Texans!
What do I know: Bills over Chiefs?
#3 Kansas City Chiefs at #1 Baltimore Ravens
Sunday, January 28th – 2:00pm CST – CBS
From 2011-2018, the New England Patriots played in eight consecutive AFC Championship Games, an unprecedented run that many believed couldn’t be duplicated, but here we are with the Kansas City Chiefs entering their sixth-consecutive AFC Championship Game with no end in sight as long as Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes are in KC. In year one, the Chiefs faced defeat in OT to the Pats in the end of the Brady/Belichick Super Bowl dynasty. In year two, they defeated a Tennessee squad leaning on an old school, smash mouth approach. In year three, they defeated a Buffalo team who honestly believed they were the next in line in the AFC. In year four, the Bengals stunned the Arrowhead crowd to wrestle away the AFC title from the perennial champs. In year five, the Bengals almost took out the Chiefs at Arrowhead for a second-straight year, but KC found a way in the closing moments.
#3 Detroit Lions at #1 San Francisco 49ers
Sunday, January 28th – 5:30pm CST – FOX
The San Francisco 49ers are playing in the NFC Championship game for the third-consecutive season, and the fourth time in five years, while the Detroit Lions are playing in their first NFC Championship Game in 32 years. An intriguing matchup of one of the NFL’s premier championship franchises facing a franchise that has never played in the NFL’s premier game.
Well, there you have it ladies and gentlemen, your potential conference champions. Even without the New Orleans Saints in the playoffs, we definitely have some players and story lines to root for and against this weekend. Leave us your picks, insight, and comments below!
