The NFC and AFC Championships are Here

The anticipation is palpable as the teams for Super Bowl LVI will be decided this weekend. In the NFC Championship Game, the LA Rams host the San Francisco 49ers at SoFi Stadium. Does Kyle Shanahan have Sean McVay’s number? These coaches are long-time friends, the teams know each other well, and the 49ers have beaten the Rams six times in a row in the last several years. The Rams are the 3 1/2-point favorites, but do they tend to play not to lose instead of playing to win? Are Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp the secret to getting the Rams into the Super Bowl on their home turf, or will it come down to 49ers kicker Robbie Gould to give San Francisco the win?

The Cincinnati Bengals will play the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in the AFC Championship Game, with Kansas City the 7-point favorites. In the last seven seasons, Andy Reid has coached KC to six straight AFC West wins and will have three straight Super Bowl appearances if he wins this week. Two of the best quarterbacks in the league will be facing each other in this game, with Patrick Mahomes playing for KC and Joe Burrow for Cincinnati, so who has the winning strategy to bring their team to LA?
