The 2022-2023 NFL season is down to Championship Weekend, with four teams trying to clinch their spot in Super Bowl LVII. Will the Cincinnati Bengals repeat as AFC Champions and get a second-straight shot at claiming a Lombardi Trophy or will the Kansas City Chiefs head back to the title game for the third time in four years?
In the AFC playoff picture, the Chiefs beat the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday, advancing the conference’s number-one seed. They will host the Bengals, who beat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, setting up a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship. The win by the Bengals allowed the Chiefs to remain in Kansas City and play at Arrowhead Stadium. If Buffalo had won on Sunday, the AFC Championship would have been played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, providing a neutral site for the game due to the Bills having played one less game than the Chiefs this season.
The NFC side of the playoff bracket saw the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles dispatch their NFC East division rivals, the New York Giants, on Saturday. Sunday’s game featured the Dallas Cowboys at the San Francisco 49ers, with the 49ers coming away victorious.
The winners from each of the Conference Championships will meet on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 6:30 p.m. ET in Super Bowl LVII. The 2023 Super Bowl will be held at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
