To recap so far, the Colts, Chargers, Cowboys, and Eagles all won their Wild Card games and advanced to the Divisional Round. Two weeks ago in the AFC Divisional Round, the Chiefs obliterated the Colts by a score of 31-13, the Patriots also ran past the Chargers with a 41-28 victory.  In the NFC Divisional Round, the Rams beat the Cowboys by a score of 30-22 and the Saints edged the Eagles 20-14 in a very exciting game.

The Chiefs and Patriots faced off this past Sunday in the AFC championship game and it was a great game as expected. The game went into overtime where the Patriots took the ball down the field and scored on the first drive, winning the game by a score of 37-31. In the NFC Championship, the Rams and Saints faced off in an overtime thriller.

The game was surrounded by controversy after a missed pass interference call in the fourth quarter which could have changed the outcome of the game. After the missed call the Rams went on to win 26-23, on a 57-yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein in overtime.

The Rams and Patriots will face off in Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m. in Super Bowl LIII, which promises to be a very exciting matchup. Tom Brady is looking to cement his legacy and win his sixth Super Bowl while Jared Goff and the Rams are looking to defeat one of the best sports dynasties of all time.
