New, comments

A pair of rematches of high-scoring games will take place today to decide who goes to the big game.

Conference Championship Sunday has finally arrived, and with it we find the four most consistent, dominant teams in the NFL still playing today. The top two seeds in both conferences won last week, with only the New Orleans Saints’ victory over the Philadelphia Eagles looking like it was in serious question.

Now it’s time to decide who goes to Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII, and both games are rematches from the regular season. The first game today is the NFC Championship, which saw the Saints beat the Rams 45-35 at home in week nine. They will suit up in New Orleans once again today, with the Saints favored by a field goal.

Later on, we’ll get the Patriots and Chiefs, who first played in Foxboro this year. However, Kansas City has home-field advantage today, and their defense has been significantly better at Arrowhead Stadium.

Tune in for both of today’s games and enjoy!
