It could have been us, if not for any number of mistakes. The Green Bay Packers could well have been playing in today’s NFC Championship Game, making a short trip to Ford Field where they won on Thanksgiving Day. Instead, the Packers fell short last Saturday as the San Francisco 49ers came back to win and earn the right to host today’s game against the Detroit Lions.

When those two teams kick off, they will know which team will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. The AFC Championship kicks off first, as the Baltimore Ravens host the Kansas City Chiefs in a titanic battle between elite teams and quarterbacks. This year, Baltimore has put up one of the best full-season DVOA ratings in history, but they will need to find a way to throw Patrick Mahomes off his game, which has been very difficult to do throughout his playoff career.

Join us here for both games and check out our writers’ picks for the contests below.
