The most exciting final four that doesn’t include the month of March or basketball is here. Championship Sunday is approaching, and the cities of New Orleans and Kansas City are pumped! The Saints haven’t been to the NFC title game since the 2009 season, where it took OT to defeat Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings, 31-28.
In their way are the Los Angeles Rams, who haven’t played in the NFC Championship game as the LA Rams since they were humiliated by the San Francisco 49ers, 30-3. The last time the Rams won the NFC was the 2001 season, when they were the St. Louis Rams. And where was that Super Bowl two weeks later in February 2002?….New Orleans, who happen to host Sunday’s NFC Championship!
Now on to the AFC title game, where the reigning, defending, undisputed AFC Champ New England Patriots travel to one of the toughest places to play, Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City to battle the Chiefs. New England hasn’t won a road AFC Championship game since the 2004 season, winning 41-27 in Pittsburgh.
For KC, this is their first AFC title game since the 1993 season, a 30-13 loss to the Buffalo Bills. In fact, this is the first AFC Championship game that Kansas City is hosting, and just the second appearance overall. Something’s gotta give.
So who is punching tickets to the ATL in early February? Ken and Jay Dawg from 107.7 The Pulse and 107.3 WEMJ (and Starting Lineup action figures in tow), to predict who’s going to win on Sunday
