We are down to the final four in the NFL and by the end of the week we will know who will be squaring off in Super Bowl LV in Tampa Bay, FL. No team has ever played in their home stadium to compete for the Super Bowl. Can Tom Brady and the Buccaneers buck that trend and continue their immaculate season? They'll have to pull off another upset, this time traveling to Green Bay to take on the Packers in the NFC Championship.

NFL Conference Championship Schedule

Sunday, January 24

NFC Championship

AFC Championship

Until last year, it seemed like you could set your clock by Brady making another Conference Championship game. He made ten of the last AFC Championships going all the way back to 2012. He has appeared in a total of 14 Championship games and has won nine of them. He is only the fourth quarterback to start in the AFC and NFC Championship games. Joe Montana has also been to both Conference Championships with the 49ers and Chiefs but Brady's accomplishments are even more stark in comparison when you think that Montana is in second place with seven appearances.

Starting the season, it was a huge question whether Brady made the right decision at 43 years old to jump ship from one of the best coaches of all time in Bill Belichick and the Patriot way to a unproven Bucs team that hadn't won a playoff game since 2003 when they won the Super Bowl. There are no questions anymore and Brady won that battle further solidifying his title as the greatest quarterback of all time. He has been proven right that he needed more weapons which the Bucs had in droves instead of being washed up and too old to play which was a huge concern when the Pats were bounced in the first round of the playoffs by the Titans last year. If Brady and the Bucs win in Green Bay he will have appeared in a mind boggling 10 Super Bowls. You don't even have to like him to tip your cap at that point.

No one said that feat would be easy though. The Packers are clearly the best team in the NFC and they made the best defense in the league look silly last week having their way with the LA Rams defense at home. The Bucs do have the next best defense in the NFC and they dominated the Packers early this season already. But just ask the Saints how much it matters to beat a team in the regular season. New Orleans destroyed the Brady led Bucs twice during the regular season and then the team had four turnovers of their own which will likely be the last game of Drew Brees' career and put Brady back in the Conference Championship. All bets are going to be off when Brady and Aaron Rodgers face off for the first time ever in the playoffs.

As for the AFC Championship we have a very familiar 2010/20s face and and a very familiar early 90s face. The later of course is the best team in the league the Kansas City Chiefs squaring off against the very formidable but albeit Cinderella team of the remaining four the Buffalo Bills. This Josh Allen led squad may be the third best team in the league as they just bounced the reigning MVP Lamar Jackson again from the second round of the playoffs limiting the Ravens to only three points. This is the best Bills team since the franchise made four straight Super Bowls in the first part of the 1990s.

Of course the Chiefs stand in their way and the biggest question for Kansas City all week has been will star QB Patrick Mahomes be able to play in the game? Mahomes suffered a concussion in their Divisional Round matchup against the Cleveland Browns. He has taken a majority of the snaps in practice. Even practicing at all this week makes it seem like he will play. He is still in concussion protocol and as a league requirement is still listed as limited. This will likely come down to a game time decision. Not to simplify it but it almost seems that if Mahomes is at full strength and is in the game, they're off to the Super Bowl. If not, the Bills will win. Let's just hope we can see Mahomes and Allen square off. Either way, with these two the future of the league is in great hands.
