Season 100 of the NFL is three games away from its finish as we find out Super Bowl LIV’s participants this weekend.
The first game on Sunday is for the AFC Championship as the 13-4 #2 seeds Kansas City Chiefs will host the 11-7 #6 seeded Tennessee Titans.
Mike Vrabel’s Titans scraped into the playoffs by virtue of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ shock loss to the New York Jets in week 16 and then beating the #4 seed Texans in Houston in week 17. The Titans were huge underdogs when they went to Foxboro and beat the New England Patriots in what could have been Tom Brady’s final game for the franchise, on the day of Bill Belichick’s 20th anniversary.
To go one further, Tennessee then knocked out the #1 seed and Super Bowl favourites, Baltimore Ravens on Saturday. They showed up to M&T Bank Stadium and didn’t allow Lamar Jackson and co to find the endzone in the first half. Derrick Henry put a beating on John Harbaugh’s defence, racking up 195 rushing yards on 30 carries and throwing a touchdown. The won 28-12.
Baltimore’s exit saw the Kansas City Chiefs become the new favourites to lift the prize, now 13/10 with the sportsbooks. However, Andy Reid’s side did it the hard way as they found themselves down 24-0 at home to the Houston Texans only four minutes into the second quarter on Sunday. The Chiefs then pulled off one of the craziest comebacks in NFL history, scoring touchdowns on seven consecutive drives, winning 51-31 in the end.

In the NFC Championship, the Green Bay Packers will head to Levi’s Stadium for the second time this season to take on the San Francisco 49ers. Rookie head coach Matt LeFleur saw his side taught a lesson in California in week 12 when they were handed a 37-8 beating.
The 49ers looked just as impressive on Saturday when they beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-10. Kirk Cousins and co couldn’t get the ball moving after an early touchdown. Aaron Rodgers and co may find some more success than their NFC North counterparts, but whether it will be enough to outscore Jimmy Garoppolo and co remains to be seen.
Green Bay saw off the Seattle Seahawks, 27-23 at Lambeau Field on Sunday as they were hanging on in the fourth quarter. Rodgers was efficient but reliant on receive Davante Adams. Should the 49ers shut him down with their excellent secondary then someone else needs to step up for the Packers.
In the 100th season of the NFL, perhaps it would be fitting if the final game was a repeat of Super Bowl I when the Green Bay Packers took on the Kansas City Chiefs?
