How They Got Here
The Bengals have had an incredible run, turning around from a perpetual doormat to AFC North champions in a single season. Their playoff run started with a home victory over the Las Vegas Raiders, 26-19.
They continued on, hitting the road to face the top-seeded Tennessee Titans.
Quarterback Joe Burrow was sacked nine times but it wasn’t enough to stop the Bengals.
Rookie kicker Evan McPherson booted four field goals, including a 52-yarder as time expired to sink the Titans, 19-16.
The Bengals will be on the road and an underdog but who is to doubt these upstarts?
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs rolled through their Wild-Card game, doubling up on the Pittsburgh Steelers, 42-21.
It was anything but easy in the Divisional Round. Kansas City and Buffalo put on a wild, back-and-forth battle.
The Chiefs led but the Bills took a 36-33 lead with 13 seconds left as Josh Allen threw a TD pass to Gabriel Davis, the fourth TD catch of the game for the wideout.
However, Patrick Mahomes managed to get the Chiefs in position for a 49-yard field goal and Harrison Butker delivered to tie the game.
The Chiefs got the ball after the Bills lost the coin toss. Mahomes drove them down the field and found Travis Kelce for the game-winning touchdown to make it 42-36.
NFC Championship Game
San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers are on a run as a Wild-Card team. They survived the Dallas Cowboys in the Super Wild Card round at AT&T Stadium.
Dak Prescott ran the ball as the clock ticked down and it ran out on America’s Team. Kyle Shanahan earned a date in Green Bay, that wonderful vacation spot in January.
The weather was frightful. The second half saw swirling snow.
The offenses could not move the ball as defenses were stalwart.
San Francisco did not lead until time expired. The 49ers blocked a punt for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to erase a 10-3 deficit and got a Robbie Gould field goal on the last play of the game for a 13-10 victory.
They are on the road, again, with the NFC title on the line.
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams have advanced to a home game but they nearly became part of NFL infamy.
Los Angeles crushed the Arizona Cardinals in the Super Wild-Card Round in a battle of NFC West teams.
That earned the Rams a shot the defending champs, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Rams roared to a 27-3 lead only to see it evaporate.
The Bucs tied the game at 27 with less than a minute left.
Matthew Stafford then found the great Cooper Kupp with two passes to set up a 30-yard field goal that gave the Rams a 30-27 win and home game to earn a spot in the Super Bowl on Feb. 13.
The 49ers swept the season series from the Rams and Kyle Shanahan has beaten Sean McVay and the Rams six straight times.
