Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs

A repeat of last year’s AFC Championship game. The Titans are probably a better team than they were this time last season, but the unfortunately come up against the reigning Superbowl champions. With Patrick Mahomes coming off a two-week break, the Chiefs should look like their unstoppable selves and will move on to host their third AFC Championship game in a row

Winner: Kansas City Chiefs

Pittsburgh Steelers at Buffalo Bills

These two teams faced off in this stadium only a few weeks ago. The Bills came away victorious in that game, and should do the same here. Yes, the Steelers defence is incredible, but so is Josh Allen. He will put up big numbers while Ben Roethlisberger will struggle to keep up on the other side. The Bills progress to their first Championship game since 1994

Winner: Buffalo Bills

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Green Bay Packers

This is an interesting one. While the Packers are a better team on paper, the Buccaneers took them to school when they played in week six. However, there is a big difference between this game and that one: this is at Lambeau Field. The Florida-based outfit will struggle with the sub-zero temperatures. On top of that, Aaron Rodgers will have learnt from the embarrassment earlier in the season and won’t let anything like that happen again. So, the Packers narrowly squeak past Tom Brady and advance to the NFC Championship

Winner: Green Bay Packers

Seattle Seahawks at New Orleans Saints

In what would be an incredibly intriguing game, the Seattle Seahawks visit to Superdome to play the New Orleans Saints. Pete Carroll versus Sean Payton. Russell Wilson versus Drew Brees. The Saints have suffered multiple heartbreaks in the playoffs over the last few years, and this will be another one. Wilson plays an outstanding game as the Seahawks triumph on the road.

Winner: Seattle Seahawks
