Here’s a look at the battles in the conference championships of the National Football League this week.

Tennessee at Kansas City

Sunday, Jan. 19 at 3:05 p.m. ET

This year’s AFC championship game contains the victors of two stunning divisional playoff wins. The Tennessee Titans shocked and stunned the Baltimore Ravens to get within one game of the Super Bowl, while the Kansas City Chiefs staged one of the biggest playoff comebacks of all-time against the Houston Texans. These two incredible victories set up what could be a thrilling showdown: Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry vs. Patrick Mahomes and Jason Kelce. With a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, expect a fight to the very last second.

Green Bay at San Francisco

Sunday, Jan. 19 at 6:40 p.m. ET

With young quarterbacks invading the league (and the playoffs) this season, a Packers-49ers showdown is everything you could want in an NFC championship game. The Niners have Jimmy Garoppolo, 28 years old and in his first full (injury-free) season as a starting QB. The Packers have Aaron Rodgers, 36 years old and in his 15th season. Garoppolo is exciting and still has that new-QB smell, while the veteran Rodgers has had a pretty quiet year. Who will win out: youth or experience? It’s an irresistible narrative, and it will almost certainly make for compelling football as Garoppolo looks to prove himself and Rodgers looks to prove that he is still capable of leading his team to glory.
