NFL divisional round overreactions: Cowboys and Bills’ seasons crash and burn
Mackenzie Salmon ‘overreacts’ to the biggest storylines from this weekend’s divisional round action.
The NFL postseason has reached the final four.
Conference championship weekend has arrived after a hotly contested divisional round. There will be a rematch of last year’s AFC championship game as the Kansas City Chiefs will host the Cincinnati Bengals, and it will be a clash of Nos. 1-2 seeds on the NFC side as the San Francisco 49ers travel to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Bengals will be attempting to reach their second consecutive Super Bowl, having lost to the Los Angeles Rams last year after stunning the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in the AFC title game. The Chiefs’ last appearance in the big game came in Super Bowl LV when they lost to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The 49ers’ last Super Bowl berth came after the 2019 season when they lost to the Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. Meanwhile, it’s been five years since the Eagles stunned Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
Here’s how the NFL playoff bracket looks heading into conference championship weekend.
