What an incredible weekend of NFL postseason football! Every game ended with a score as time expired or due to sudden death. Three road teams gave it their all and sent the No. 1 seeds and Tom Brady home. With all of the action we’ve seen so far, are there any more NFL games left on Monday Night Football tonight?
Unfortunately, last week’s playoff debut of Monday Night Football was the only one of the postseason. There will be no NFL game tonight — fans will have to wait until September 10, 2022, for more Monday Night Football. With just three games left this year, the action is heating up.
Conference Championship schedule
So, when is the next time fans will see NFL action this postseason? The Conference Championships are set in the AFC and NFC as playoff action wrapped up in Arrowhead Stadium last night. 13 seconds was too much time for Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, navigating Kansas City’s offense 44 yards in two plays to set up the game-tying field goal.
Kansas City won the overtime coin toss and scored a TD on their first drive. The Bills and Chiefs finished even this season but anxiously await their subsequent rematch. Meanwhile, despite a rough day overall, Cincinnati capitalized on Titans QB Ryan Tannehill’s mistakes when they needed to. Tannehill’s interception with 20 seconds left opened the door to send the Bengals to the AFC Championship Game for the first time since 1989. Rookie kicker Evan McPherson scored a 52-yard field goal after getting 19 yards from QB Joe Burrow and WR Ja’Marr Chase.
San Francisco held the Packers down all night on the other side of the football world, sacking Aaron Rodgers 5 times. The Packers were stunned and stifled in what could’ve been Rodgers’ last game in Green Bay. The offense found little traction, flubbing the few opportunities they did have. The 49ers’ perseverance sees them heading back to LA to take on the Rams for the third time this year.
The Rams were a Cooper Kupp route away from epically losing this game and adding to the Tom Brady mystique. But also credit the man who threw the ball. Rams QB Matthew Stafford now has two playoff wins under his belt. In what will be their third battle this year and second divisional trilogy in the postseason, can the Rams finally beat the 49ers?
