I'm a Saints fan so hoping they can pull that off. I can definitely see this game going either way though, the Rams have an outstanding team.

I do give a slight edge to the Chiefs but it's so hard to go against Bellichick and Brady because they have been so dominant.

I'm hoping for a Saints and Patriots Super Bowl and for Brees to get his 2nd SB title.

Since the merger (1970), both road teams won on Championship Sunday only three times: 1992, 1997, and 2012. Additionally, the away team has won only 30 times on Championship Sunday, a win percentage of .313. Home field matters a great deal in the NFL!

Default Andy - "Time in Sun" or "Not"

Does Andy seem like that Fatherly Coach? I just get that kind of feeling when I watch him. A play goes wrong and he just seems to give a stare and then goes to the next play. When really bad he looks up at the play monitor seems to stare a little longer then back to his play chart. Belichick seems to look at an error places his arms side to side and looks expressionless.
As a player of the two Bill has to be more intimidating. Both has a winning resume but are they any where near being in the same class. Bill is legendary. Andy as good as he coaches all you ever hear in Philly is "time management". Pretty crazy that you can be that good at coaching and be faulted for something like time management. Any way 2 lions go at it today. I want KC to win and that'll take some doing and much more than just time mabagement.

I would like to see KC win but Andy Reid scares me with his crisis game planning sometimes. As a Packer fan, he seems too much McCarthy like at times (and I was a McCarthy supporter until recently). Hopefully KC can do this. Will be good games today (I hope) the old against the new!

As a Metairie native, I'm a born and bred Saints (and sometimes Aints) fan but Mahomes was born in my current city and attended my daughter's high school, so I'm also stoked about the Chiefs game today. I'd love to see a Saints/Chiefs Superbowl!!!!!!!

My dogs should be very afraid by this evening. They hate football season because their "parents" yell at the TV and do a lot of jumping around, and occasionally cussing.

While the NFL likely set the schedule for today's games beforehand (before Divisional round), it would've definitely made more sense to put the AFC game first for weather's sake (safety/comfort of fans attending). On the NFC side, the strong odds of who would be hosting would be either a dome team (Saints, Cowboys) or warm weather team (Rams). Thus the NFC game could've been the night game.


The AFC host would have either been the Chiefs or Patriots (or Chargers), and it would've made sense to have them play the afternoon game where it's a little warmer outside.


As a Rams fan, I would've preferred to watch the Chiefs/Patriots first haha, because today I may be a little salty when I watch that game.

I donít have a strong preference in the NFC game. I like Brees and I like a pair of former Broncos nownplaying for the Rams in Talib and Anderson. In the AFC, I can never Root for a divisional rival and I honestly donít mind the thought of the Patriots in another Super Bowl. Iíll be rooting for either of the NFC teams over either of the AFC teams in the Super Bowl.

Hard for me to say but I would not cry if the Saints do win. After the Redskins, Rams and Chiefs I like the Saints. All I know is I don't want to see the darn Patriots in there again.
