Aaron Rodgers Has Blunt Message For NFC Championship Referees

AFC Championship Game preview Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs

But here we are.

Aaron Rodgers will be playing in his first home NFC Championship Game today, and he will do so on a chilly evening in Green Bay. "It's hard to put something up if you don't know who the key player is, but we had to put it up because of the magnitude of the game".

The NFC Championship will mark the first of two rematches in this weekend's games. Tampa Bay is the first team in a decade to win three road games on its way to the Super Bowl, duplicating a feat last achieved by their most recent opponent, the Packers, in 2010.

Kelce and Hill combined for 290 receiving yards and two touchdowns in a dominant performance as reigning Super Bowl MVP Mahomes also starred. It seems a safe bet to expect a closer outcome this time around, with both teams backing up their legendary QBs with strong running games and talented receiving groups. We're 100 percent in for the drama in Green Bay! Tampa Bay won that game, 38-10. Tampa Bay, last this deep in the playoffs in 2002, would play Cinderella here if not for Brady.

Below is all the info you need to watch Packers vs. Buccaneers on Sunday, including the TV channels and kickoff time. Numerous such services offer broadcast networks like CBS, NBC and Fox as well as ESPN and the NFL Network. Joe Buck will handle play-by-play duties with Troy Aikman adding the color commentary. It is fair to assume Rodgers and Co. recognize the strength of the Tampa defense is stopping the run and will continue to press their advantage through the air, even with a lead, which sets up a game state that lends to a shootout between these veteran quarterbacks.


Packers fans have suffered through some heartbreaking season-enders in the NFC title game. Guys just embraced everything, really, when [Arians] got here past year. Teams arrive a week ahead of the game not just for practice purposes, but to participate in numerous pre-Super Bowl media events. The 49ers - hit hard by injuries - didn't make the playoffs. After that loss, the Packers would go 3-2 in their next five games, their worst stretch all season. But Brady and the Bucs have been very good as well.

But this Packers team has been on fire in recent weeks on both sides of the ball.

Considering he just put together an MVP-worthy campaign, perhaps Rodgers can pull a Brady and extend his career well into his 40s. This will be his 14th conference championship game.

The Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers are expected to arrive on February 5 if they win on Sunday, while the Kansas City Chiefs plan to arrive the day before the title game.

Had the Los Angeles Rams beaten the Packers last weekend in the divisional round and advanced to play the higher-seeded Bucs on the road, the National Football League would have encountered a situation it never has in its history: Sunday's conference championship game would have been the first to be played on the same Super Bowl grass field that already had been installed in advance of the big game.
