Read on for a breakdown of the matchups in the NFL Conference Championship Games and the latest Super Bowl 2023 odds.
NFL Conference Championship Matchups
There are just four teams left standing in the NFL Playoffs and there are going to be familiar faces in the NFL Conference championships. For the second year in a row, the Bengals, Chiefs and 49ers will head back to the Conference Championship Round. On the other hand, the Eagles made their first NFC Championship since 2017 when they won the Super Bowl.
In the AFC, the Chiefs will be looking for revenge as they are set to host the Bengals again at Arrowhead. Meanwhile, the Eagles and 49ers matchup will feature the two most successful NFC teams in the 21st century at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
AFC Championship — Kansas City Chiefs vs Cincinnati Bengals
It’ll be a rematch in the AFC as Kansas City prepares to take on Joe Burrow and the Bengals for the second straight year.
The Chiefs-Bengals game will mark only the third time in the last 35 years that the AFC Championship game has featured the same two teams as the year before.
For Kansas City, it will advance to its fifth straight AFC Conference Championship while the Bengals reach their fourth conference championship in franchise history.
Adding fuel to the fire, Burrow has had Mahomes’ number over the past year. The Bengals are 3-0 against the Chiefs dating back to January 1, 2022. While Cincinnati will be slight underdogs on Sunday, a win over Kansas City would be a statement that the Bengals are now the top dog in the AFC.
