After an exciting weekend of the Divisional Games, the NFL Championship Game will be on Sunday, January 19th. Be sure to check out our NFL Divisional Round Matchups post to read about the teams that played this past weekend.
NFL Championship Game – AFL
When the weekend started, there were four teams. Now, there are two teams playing in each conference. Many Analysts and fans thought the Baltimore Ravens were the team to beat. Well, that ended up not being the case.
In fact, the Tennessee Titans have been dominant in both their wins against the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens.
So, let’s take a look at what happened. In the first place, Mike Vrabel’s team upset the Ravens in a stunning victory that showed everyone why they belonged. With three turnovers by Lamar Jackson and the Ravens unable to convert on 2 four and one attempts; the Titans were in complete control of the game.
Now, let’s take a look at the game against the Kansas City Chiefs v Houston Texans. When this game started, the Texans stunned the Chiefs by putting up 24 points before the Chiefs even scored a point. However, last year’s MVP, Patrick Mahomes was able to get his team back in the game. Final score was 51 – 31.
Since this is Ryan Tannehill’s first playoff appearance; he is showing a lot of confidence. Although Tannehill’s numbers have been mediocre in both playoff win’s; Derrick Henry’s performance has been incredible.
In the AFC, the schedule is as follows:
- On Sunday, January 19th, the Kansas City Chiefs will face the Tennessee Titans at 3:05 p.m. in Kansas.
NFL Championship Game – NFC
In the National League, the San Francisco 49ers easily defeated the Minnesota Vikings. With many of their players coming back from injuries, the 49ers were dominant in both their offense and defense. If they play like this on Sunday, they will surely be headed to the Super Bowl.
With the Green Bay Packers defensive unit, they were able to pick up the team and win with a final score of 28 – 23 against the Seattle Seahawks. Although this wasn’t one of the Packers better games; they were able to march to a victory.
In the NFC, the schedule is as follows:
- On Sunday, January 19th, the San Franciso 49ers will host the Green Bay Packers at 6:40 p.m.
