Before the Green Bay Packers’ Divisional playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks kicks off, there is another game to play. That game matches up a pair of AFC division winners who will both hope to host the AFC Championship Game next week against the Tennessee Titans.
The Titans shocked the NFL world on Saturday night, defeating the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens behind the punishing running of Derrick Henry and an opportunistic defense. In doing so, they became the first sixth-seeded team to advance to a Championship Game since the Packers did so in the 2010 postseason. Of course, the Packers beat the Chicago Bears in that year’s NFC Championship and then defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.
Today’s early game is a great quarterback matchup, only adding to the intrigue in this contest. Will Patrick Mahomes get to play in a second straight Conference Championship at home, or will DeShaun Watson advance to the playoffs’ third round for the first time in his career? Tune in to find out and discuss with fellow Packers fans here!
