The Divisional Round of the 2019 NFL Playoffs is over and the schedule for next week’s Conference Championship games is officially set.
Unfortunately for the Philadelphia Eagles, they will not be headed back to the NFC Championship Game for the second year in a row.
Instead, it’ll be the team that defeated them — the New Orleans Saints — hosting the Los Angeles Rams at the Superdome. The Saints beat the Rams back when the two teams played in Week 9, 45 to 35.
The AFC Championship Game will be hosted in Kansas City. Andy Reid and Pat Mahomes will try to lead the Chiefs to a win over the New England Patriots. The Pats beat the Chiefs back in Week 6, 43 to 40, but that game was in Foxborough.
As you may have noticed, it’s the top two seeds from each conference that made it to the championship games. Having that first-round bye and getting to play home games in the playoffs really helps. The Eagles know this from last year’s Super Bowl run.
Let’s take a look at the entire remaining playoff schedule.
