NFL Conference Championship Games: Time, Dates & How to Watch (Chiefs vs. Bengals)
By Matt Conner
Let’s look at everything you need to know to catch the conference championships in the NFL postseason.
The NFL playoffs are whittled down the competition to a mere four teams. That means 28 other teams have already sent their players home for the offseason, and front office personnel are looking firmly ahead to an offseason in which they hope to reverse their fortunes from the previous season while watching the four teams left in NFL conference championship games compete for eventual Super Bowl glory.
The NFL conference championships begin this weekend, and that means the two best teams in each conference—the AFC and NFC—will be pitted against each other for the right to represent their half of the league in the Super Bowl.
On one side, the NFC, the contest will come down to the visiting San Francisco 49ers, who are riding a red-hot defense and a seventh-round rookie at quarterback in Brock Purdy, against the Philadelphia Eagles, who have been perhaps the most consistently good team in the league this season.
On the other side, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs hope to put their star’s ankle injury behind him enough to shake the Cincinnati Bengals, who have beaten the Chiefs in three straight games going back to January, 2022.
If you’re wanting to catch the conference championship games, we’ve got you covered.
