It. Is. Time.

The Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers are about to kick off in the NFC Championship Game. The two teams had matching 13-3 records in the regular season, but tonight’s game will be held at the 49ers’ home stadium, Levi’s Stadium, due to their head-to-head win in the regular season.

In the early game, the Kansas City Chiefs booked their trip to Miami for Super Bowl LIV, their first trip to the big game in exactly 50 years. Kansas City won Super Bowl IV, defeating the Minnesota Vikings 23-7. They were the AFL’s participant in Super Bowl I as well, a game that the Green Bay Packers won 35-10.

Tonight, the Packers would love nothing more than to force a rematch of that first Super Bowl by defeating the 49ers. The two teams last met in the NFC Championship following the 1997 season, when the Packers won at Candlestick Park en route to Super Bowl XXXII.

Tune in for the game and join us here to follow along to see who advances to the Super Bowl.
