NFL Playoff Schedule: AFC and NFC championship games are set

And then there were four.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The divisional round of the 2020 NFL playoff schedule is over and the conference championship games are set. Four teams remain in contention for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The AFC Championship Game will be hosted in Kansas City for the second year in a row. Andy Reid is one win away from making his first Super Bowl appearance since 2004. Might this FINALLY be the year that Big Red gets over the jump? The Chiefs are certainly a force to be reckoned with but one can’t count out the Tennessee Titans. The presence of Derrick Henry could allow the Titans to play keep away and limit Patrick Mahomes’ opportunities.

The Titans and Chiefs previously faced off at Arrowhead Stadium in Week 10. Tennessee escaped with the win after blocking a game-tying 52-yard field goal attempt at the end of regulation.

The NFC Championship Game will be hosted in San Francisco. Well, not really, since the 49ers actually play in Santa Clara, which is nearly an hour drive south of San Fran. But you get the point.

The 49ers previously hosted the Green Bay Packers back in Week 12. That game didn’t go so well for cheeseheads as the Packers lost by a final score of 37 to 8. I have a feeing the matchup might be a little more competitive this time around.

Just too bad to see that Jadeveon Clowney and the Seattle Seahawks were eliminated on Sunday evening.
