It’s NFL Conference Championship day. The last day of football until the Super Bowl.
There were 3 games this season in which 2 playoff teams each scored 35+ points vs each other— NFL Research (@NFLResearch) January 14, 2019
Wk 6: Patriots beat Chiefs 43-40
Wk 9: Saints beat Rams 45-35
Wk 11: Rams beat Chiefs 54-51
We'll see a rematch of 2 of those games this weekend. Will there be a 3rd one in Atlanta?
First, the Los Angeles Rams travel to play the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome, where they lost earlier this season, in a battle for the NFC title.
Then, the Kansas City Chiefs will host the New England Patriots in a rematch for the AFC crown.
