NFL Playoffs: Chiefs vs Ravens, Lions vs 49ers for a Shot at Super Bowl

23rd January 2024 | Category: Sports

If only it weren’t for the Bass’ miss, Bills could have had hope to meet the NFC champ in Las Vegas on February 11th. However, Tyler Bass did sink it – and even if he didn’t, Chiefs would have probably found a way – and Kansas City is meeting Baltimore next Sunday.

Who’s Who

We are one game away from seeing the biggest event in football in all of America. That game – technically two games – will decide the NFC and AFC Conference champions, and if you think that’s less important than the actual Super Bowl, you are wrong.

In the upcoming AFC Championship game, Ravens meet the Kansas City Chiefs, while NFC Championship title game is a meetup between Detroit Lions and the San Francisco 49ers. Although it might be easy to pick favorites, all four teams have very strong chances of hitting the desired result and landing a spot in Las Vegas (and even earning the trophy). Let’s see where both games will take place and how you can watch them.

AFC Conference Title Game

In the next AFC Conference title game, competing for the championship title we have Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens.

Although the two teams have had a completely different experience this season – the Ravens were the first seed while Chiefs were said to be falling off – both teams reached the championship game in hopes of lifting the trophy. Once they lift that one, they fully intend to head into Las Vegas with the same goal.

Ravens have a slight edge over Chiefs when it comes to picking the winner. Understandable, really, when we consider how put-together the Ravens team is. Simply put, they’re the full package, as they possess an All-Pro quarterback and an unmatched defense. Well, matched only by Chiefs.

On the other hand, Chiefs have been here before. They’ve been the underdog, they’ve been the favorite, and more importantly, they’ve been to the championship game. In fact, this is their sixth straight AFC championship game (and Mahomes has been here for six years). While we are on the topic of quarterbacks, let’s not fool ourselves – Mahomes is a beast. He is not going down without a hell of a fight, and this season, he refuses to give up. Plus, he’s well protected, with the best defense his team has seen so far. But the question still stands – is Chiefs best defense enough for Ravens’ offense? We’ll see on Sunday. You can buy tickets for the AFC Championship game HERE.

NFC Conference Title Game

On the other side of the fence is a whole new different game. Lions and 49ers, two budding rivals, are competing for a chance to lift the trophy and get the title of NFC champions. However, unlike Ravens and Chiefs who do this almost every year, these teams haven’t had it easy. Even though the 49ers have appeared in the NFC championship games six times in the last 13 years, they haven’t won a Super Bowl since 1994. On the other hand, Lions haven’t had two playoff wins since 1957. We really don’t want to count the years, so let’s just say it’s a lot. The fans are beside themselves with each win, and rightfully so, as they are witnessing history.

So, who has the better chance of winning the game and advancing to the Super Bowl? Well, that’s a bit hard to say right now. Brock Purdy is on a mission to go all the way to the Super Bowl, and his previous performances put him at the top of the list of most successful quarterbacks today. Moreover, the 49ers offense is excellent – and Lions have a shaky defense, so that gives the Niners an advantage. On the other hand, Purdy has not had a steady performance, and Lions will definitely try to destabilize his plays further. Another thing that plays into Lions’ hands is the run track. Lions can outrun the Niners easily, which gives them an advantage over the San Francisco team. But which one will land at the Super Bowl? Again, remains to be seen on Sunday.
