On Saturday night, the Rams play the Falcons for just the second time in the last five years. Then on Sunday, the Saints play the Panthers for the 11th time in the past five years.
The playoffs begin with the Chiefs and Alex Smith hosting Marcus Mariota and the Titans. Action continues on Sunday, as either the Bills or Jaguars will get their first playoff win in a long, long time.
The Falcons try to bring Atlanta its first Lombardi Trophy and its first pro title since 1995. The Brady-Belichick Patriots would mark themselves as the NFL's greatest dynasty with a fifth title. Welcome to Super Bowl LI.
"Last team with the ball wins" is a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best way to get across the central narrative of an important game. If you like great quarterback play, you have to watch the NFC Championship Game.
A Super Bowl berth could be decided by the Patriots' ability to contain Le'Veon Bell -- and by Pittsburgh's ability to avoid their usual defensive breakdowns against New England.
In Week 6, the Seahawks beat the Falcons, while the Cowboys defeated the Packers. We'll get a rematch of both games this weekend, hopefully with all the excitement (and none of the controversy) as that Atlanta-Seattle showdown.
One of the AFC's playoff games this weekend is expected to be a back-and-forth down-to-the-wire affair. The other... isn't.
The NFC wild-card round is not hurting for star power, not with former Super Bowl champion quarterbacks like Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers, and Russell Wilson. And then there's Matt Stafford, who is still searching for his first playoff win.
The AFC's playoff matchups this weekend are both rematches from the regular season, but all four teams have seen drastic changes in the past few months.
Call it a Super Bowl XLIX rematch, or a preview of Super Bowl LI. Can New England end Seattle's historic 96-game streak of not being blown out? Can Russell Wilson lead a road comeback? Are the tight ends going to dominate? We preview Week 10's big one.
