The NFL Playoffs began approximately two weeks ago, and it has been nothing short of exciting. There have been many close games and upsets leading us to our last four teams in the bracket. These teams include the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Cincinnati Bengals, and the Kansas City Chiefs.

All these teams that remained were all at the top of their conference. The world can expect some high-level gameplay this upcoming week in the NFL Playoffs.

Kansas City Chiefs v. Cincinnati BengalsĀ 

The Kansas City Chiefs are facing off against the Cincinnati Bengals, a battle that the community loves to see. The Chiefs faced off against the Bengals last year, coming up short. The score was 34-31 in a very offensive-sided game which eliminated the Chiefs from the playoffs. Burrow had fantastic fun throwing for 446 yards while having a 75% completion rate.

The LSU connection was vital as his main target was Ja’marr Chase, his former college teammate. He ended the game with 11 completions resulting in 266 yards. Chase averaged 24.2 yards per catch and scored three touchdowns as well. Patrick Mahomes suffered an injury in his last game during the Jacksonville Jaguars with a high ankle sprain.

Mahomes overcame the odds as he still scored two touchdowns and closed the competition. Does Mahomes have enough to overcome Burrow and the Bengals?

Philadelphia Eagles v. San Francisco 49ersĀ 

The Philadelphia Eagles face off against the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC championship this weekend. It will be a very defensively-sided game, as these are the two highest-ranked defenses in the league. Jalen Hurts recently came off an injury, but he still demolished the Giants quickly. The 49ers were in a close game with the Cowboys last week, resulting in a score of 19-12.

The 49ers have been rolling behind their third-string quarterback Brock Purdy who has a 108.0 pass rating as a rookie. Purdy has been unstoppable, but will he be able to do it against a strong defense like the Eagles? Will Hurts be able to overcome the number one defense not even three weeks off of an injury? These questions will be answered this weekend in these two matchups the football world is excited to see.
