After two weeks of exciting playoff action, just four teams remain in the race for Super Bowl LIII.

In the AFC, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs will host the New England Patriots in the conference championship. For the Chiefs, it’s the first appearance in the AFC title game since 1993, while the Patriots will be playing in the final four for the eighth consecutive season.

Over in the NFC, the Los Angeles Rams will travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints in a matchup that pits the two most dominant teams in the conference all season against each other for the second time this year, now with a spot in the Super Bowl on the line.

Both games are rematches from exciting regular season battles, with the Patriots and Saints both coming out on top the first time around.
