The NFL playoffs got under way in the title games after the defending champion Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Buffalo Bills on the road Sunday and the San Francisco 49ers beat the Dallas Cowboys.
The preliminary round of the 2023 NFL playoffs kicked off Saturday as the Kansas City Chiefs and struggling Patrick Mahomes held off to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars, 27-20, and the Philadelphia Eagles destroyed the New York Giants, 38-7.
After a week off, the teams ranked in each conference entered the fray this weekend and both continued. The Chiefs, ranked highest in the AFC each of the past four years, will be in the AFC Championship game for the fifth year in a row. On the NFC side, after their convincing victory over their rivals, the seeded Eagles will appear for the first time in the NFC title game since the 2017 season.
Two more teams are looking to push their tickets to the conference tournament today.
This year will mark the fourth Super Bowl to be played in Arizona and the first since the Patriots broke out to defeat the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX.
