Championship Weekend


Highlights of notable NFL performances for the week ending Jan. 17.

This weekend holds the key to the door of Super Bowl LV. The final four teams are set and this Sunday will determine the special two clubs that will head to Tampa Bay.

Championship Sunday begins with the NFC Championship Game, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-5) travel to play the Green Bay Packers (14-3) for the George Halas Trophy at Lambeau Field (3:05 PM ET, FOX). The Buccaneers are appearing in their first Championship Game since the 2002 season, when they went on to win Super Bowl XXXVII, while the Packers are making their second consecutive appearance. The game features the quarterback with the most postseason wins in NFL history, Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady (32), against the franchise with the most world championships, Green Bay (13).

In the AFC on Sunday (6:40 PM ET, CBS), the top two seeds in the conference, the Buffalo Bills (15-3) and Kansas City Chiefs (15-2), face off at Arrowhead Stadium for the Lamar Hunt Trophy. Buffalo’s Josh Allen (24 years old) and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes (25) could become just the second pair of opposing quarterbacks under the age of 26 to start a conference Championship Game, joining Vince Ferragamo (25 years old) of the Los Angeles Rams and Doug Williams (24) of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1979 NFC title game.

The Bills are playing in the AFC Championship for the first time since the 1993 season, when they defeated the Chiefs to advance to Super Bowl XXVIII. Kansas City, meanwhile, is only the second team in NFL history to host three consecutive Championship Games, joining the 2002-04 Philadelphia Eagles, who were also led by head coach Andy Reid.
