NFC Championship Game Primer: How to watch Packers vs. Buccaneers

It’s finally time for the Packers to host an NFC title game once again. Here’s how and when to tune in.

NFL: NFC Divisional Round-Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers Green Bay Press Gazette-USA TODAY NETWORK

One game. Sixty minutes.

That’s all that separates the Green Bay Packers from a trip to the Super Bowl. A decade is a long time to wait, especially for a team that has tremendous success but has lost three NFC Championship games in the past nine seasons. But this year’s Packers team has something that those other three squads did not: the right to play at Lambeau Field.

No, Lambeau will not be full of Packers fans, but there will be around 8,500 once again on Sunday when the Packers host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game. Matt LaFleur’s team is determined not to fall a game short of a Super Bowl appearance once again, regardless of who they have to face.

Earning the #1 seed is always critically important, but especially this year as only the top seed got a bye through the Wild Card round. Now with weather conditions expected to be classic January Packers football weather — temperatures in the high 20s with a chance of some snow — who could ask for anything better?

Packers-Buccaneers is the early game on Sunday. Here are all the details on how and when to tune in.
