Somehow, we are already only a few weeks away from the Super Bowl. Only four teams remain in the hunt to lift the Lombardi Trophy on the first Sunday of February. Here are how the final teams all stack up as we head into Championship weekend.
1. Kansas City Chiefs (Won 51-31 vs HOU; next vs TEN)
Kansas City’s offense buzzsawed the Texans after falling into an early hole. They scored touchdowns on seven straight drives, and their defense held up their end of the bargain after a horrible start. Their focus now moves to a Titans team that could not be any more different from them.
2. San Francisco 49ers (Won 27-10 vs MIN; next vs GB)
San Francisco cruised past the Vikings on the back of a strong defensive performance. They luckily got to avoid both the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks this postseason, but they will need to get by Aaron Rodgers in order to make the Super Bowl.
3. Tennessee Titans (Won 28-12 vs BAL; next vs KC)
The Titans have gotten to the AFC Championship game by playing things old school. Derrick Henry nearly had another 200 yards on the ground in the Divisional round, and the defense managed to do the impossible by shutting down the dynamic Lamar Jackson for majority of the game. Now the Cinderella team of the new decade travels to Arrowhead with a chance to earn a Super Bowl berth.
4. Green Bay Packers (Won 28-23 vs SEA; next vs SF)
Green Bay’s defense played an incredible game against the Seahawks, and the offense did just enough to complement them and earn a berth into the NFC Championship game. The Packers now head to Levi’s Stadium for a game against the 49ers that will certainly be low scoring.
