It seems like the playoffs only just began, yet somehow we’ve reached the end of the road before the Super Bowl with just two games left to be played before the Super Bowl.
Today, the NFL has lined up two amazing games which will determine the identities of the two teams which will face off for the Lombardi Trophy. In the AFC, it’s a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship Game with the Kansas City Chiefs once again hosting the Cincinnati Bengals. Meanwhile, in the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers will be heading to Philadelphia to face the Eagles with both teams looking to secure the NFC Champion title.
This weekend, both games will be coming today beginning with the NFC Championship Game at 3 p.m. ET with the AFC Championship Game to follow. When exactly will that game air? The answer might just surprise you.
Who’s playing Sunday Night Football tonight, January 29?
Tonight, there will not be a game of Sunday Night Football played on NBC which means that no one will be playing tonight in primetime. In fact, there won’t even be an NFL game airing on NBC this weekend with the AFC and NFC Championship Games instead being played on FOX and CBS.
While there will not be a primetime game coming on NBC this evening, there will be a late-afternoon game for fans to enjoy as the day begins to wind down. CBS is set to broadcast the AFC Championship Game beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET, meaning that the game will bleed into the network’s primetime schedule.
During the game, fans will get to see the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the final game in the playoffs which will determine who will be heading to the Super Bowl on Feb. 12. It should be an exciting game, so be sure to tune in via your local CBS affiliate to watch the game this evening!
