If you missed last week’s round of Divisional Playoff games, then you missed some amazing matches. You could hear the band wagon come to a crashing halt as the Dallas Cowboys were narrowly defeated by the Green Bay Packers at the last second with a field goal.
Speaking of field goals, the Steelers surpassed the Chiefs 18-16 by scoring six field goals and not a single touchdown. Sure, the Steelers were favored to win but who would have thought it would be like that? That’s the great thing about the NFL, anything can happen.
This week we have the NFL Conference Championships, which pits the top two in the AFC and NFC against each other in a decisive match to decide who gets to go to the big game. Now if you’re worried about which cable channel you’ll need to tune in to, have no fear. You don’t need cable to watch the NFL Playoffs.
Both of the matches this Sunday will air on network television, which means all you need to watch the playoffs without cable is an over-the-air (OTA) antenna. An OTA antenna works like the old rabbit ears of yesteryear, only a lot better; think 1080i HD and fewer reception problems (not to mention improved aesthetics).
Now let’s take a look at the matches we’ll be watching:
Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons, 3:05 PM, Fox
When they last met on the field, the Atlanta Falcons eked out a 1 point victory over Green Bay; but a lot has changed since then. At that time, Green Bay was at that start of a four game losing streak, but has since climbed back up to win eight straight games. For their part, Atlanta has remained one of the highest scoring offenses in the league; thanks to the duo of Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. Green Bay is a much better team this time around, but will it be enough to dampen the touchdown machine that is Atlanta?
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New England Patriots, 6:40 PM, CBS
This will be probably be the most exciting game of the post-season, with the exception of the Super Bowl itself. These two championship favorites have duked it out time and time again, and this match-up its for the AFC Championship. New England is as steady and as dominant as ever; having destroyed the Houston Texans last week. When Pittsburgh last met New England, they lost 27-16, but like the Packers they are a very different team. Only time will tell if that improvement is enough to push them past the point of victory.
