NFL Conference Championship Previews

The NFL playoffs are down to the final four teams with the conference championships on tap for this Sunday.

The NFC championship pits the Green Bay Packers against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field in Chicago in the early game at 3 p.m.

Next up, in a 6:30 p.m. start, the New York Jets take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Both these games are rematches from the regular season so these teams come into these games with a high level of familiarity, especially in the NFC given that this will be the third meeting between the Packers and Bears this year.

The Jets beat the Steelers 22-17 on the road in Week 15 after stopping a late-game Pittsburgh drive to preserve the win.

The Packers lost to the Bears 20-17 on opening day in Chicago, but came away with a 10-3 win at home in the last week of the regular season.

Below is my complete preview of each game as originally posted on SportsBook Lists
