The Patriots and Falcons punched their way to the conference finals on Saturday with decisive wins over the Texans and Seahawks, respectively. Now, we eagerly await the opponent of each team.
Sunday will decide the NFC Conference Championship matchup first, as the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys will duke it out in Texas. The Cowboys handled the Packers back in Week 6 at Lambeau. However, the Packers hardly resemble the team that took the field in October. Most importantly: Aaron Rodgers is back to his MVP self. However, he’ll be without his favorite target, Jordy Nelson, who has been declared out with a serious rib injury.
To cap off the night, the Chiefs will host the Steelers in a game that was moved to the evening due to weather conditions. Kansas City is hoping to win just their second playoff game since 1993 (1-8 over that span). The Steelers, on the other hand, are in the postseason for the third straight year and are 7-4 in the playoffs since 2008. But the fortunes of the two franchises seem to be changing, as the Chiefs are the two seed in this matchup.
