Football fans will be gathering around their screens big and small today to watch the final two playoff games of the 2023 NFL season. With teams on the East Coast, West Coast, and in the Midwest all represented, the regional rivalry should be fierce—in a friendly way, of course.
The conference championships will take place on Sunday, January 28, between the AFC and the NFC conferences. The winners will determine which two teams advance to Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on February 11. The games are spaced apart so you can watch them both, albeit on different networks. Here’s the lineup:
- 3 p.m. ET, AFC: The Kansas City Chiefs versus the Baltimore Ravens (airing on CBS, Paramount+)
- 6:30 p.m. ET, NFC: The Detroit Lions versus the San Francisco 49ers (airing on Fox)
Cord-cutters who want to watch the games or stream them on a computer, phone, or TV have a few different options.
