NFC Championship Game: San Francisco 49ers vs. Philadelphia Eagles, 1 p.m., Fox
Brock Purdy has passed every test that has come his way since taking over as the 49ers’ starter at quarterback, but he’ll face a challenge he hasn’t seen before in the Philadelphia Eagles’ defense. The 49ers have won 12 straight games, but we think the Eagles will end that streak with a win at home in the NFC Championship Game in what should be a thriller.
Prediction: Eagles 27, 49ers 24
AFC Championship Game: Cincinnati Bengals vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 4:30 p.m., CBS, Paramount+
We’ve gone back and forth on this one in a rematch of last season’s AFC Championship Game and a game earlier this season in Cincinnati. We were initially going to go with the Chiefs getting revenge for those two losses, but Patrick Mahomes’ health hangs over Kansas City. The Bengals have proven they can win in tough environments and we think they’ll top the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in an AFC Championship Game classic.
Prediction: Bengals 24, Chiefs 23
