Hello football fans! We have arrived to the championship games.

That means we are one step away to see which two teams will vie for the Lombardi Trophy at Super Bowl LI!

The Atlanta Falcons will host the Green Bay Packers for the NFC Championship Game. Both teams are on winning streaks, with the Falcons at five and the Packers at eight.

The Falcons dominated the Seattle Seahawks in their thought-to-be last game at the Georgia Dome by a score of 36-20. The Packers withstood a Cowboy comeback and advanced with the leg of Mason Crosby by a score of 34-31.

Something’s got to give in this game. Will MVP candidate Matt Ryan lead his Falcons to Houston? Or will Aaron Rodgers help his team obtain glory once again?

Over in the AFC, two familiar titans will battle in Foxborough. The New England Patriots will host the Pittsburgh Steelers for the AFC Championship Game.

Despite an early scare, the Patriots stopped the Houston Texans 34-16 at home. The Steelers tamed the Kansas City Chiefs thanks to the leg of kicker Chris Boswell, who set an all-time postseason record of six field goals. That was all the Steelers needed, and they won by a score of 18-16.

Will Tom Brady lead his team to the Super Bowl once more? Or will the Steelers represent the AFC again? Either way, it will be a seemingly common sight seeing these two vie for victory!

Before these teams take the field, let’s see how the second round came together. I went undefeated in my playoff campaign this week, bringing my postseason record to 7-1. Here’s a recap of what I got right and wrong:
