The countdown to the Super Bowl has reached a crucial stage with the divisional playoffs this weekend.
Four teams will make it to their respective conference finals the week later, where they’ll be playing for a place at Super Bowl 50.
Kansas City Chiefs @ New England Patriots
The Chiefs are having a great season and after their 30-0 demolition of Houston Texans in the wildcards, there is real belief that they can stun the reigning Super Bowl champs this weekend and make it to the conference playoff for the first time since 1993.
Green Bay Packers @ Arizona Cardinals
The Packers racked up 35 points last week against the Redskins and they’ll need to be at their best again as they take on the Cardinals. Arizona are widely considered as favourites for this year’s title.
Seattle Seahawks @ Carolina Panthers
The Seahawks are looking for a third consecutive appearance at the main event, but they only just made it through to this stage after a one-point victory in a freezing Minnesota. The Panthers are favourites to win the NFC conference this year.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Denver Broncos
The Steelers also edged through last weekend, with a two-point win over the Bengals. Denver represent a tougher proposition in a match between two Super Bowl stalwarts. Between them, they’ve made 15 appearances at the extravaganza.
