It’s that time of the year folks — just one game remains on what has been a wild regular season and postseason in the NFL. Conference championship weekend is in the books and just two teams vie for the Lombardi. In one corner, you’ve got a Kansas City Chiefs franchise whose fanbase has been patiently waiting a long time — 50 years to be exact — to get back to the Super Bowl. In the other, you have a San Francisco 49ers franchise vying to tie the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots for the most Super Bowl wins (6) of all time.
The narrative can also be boiled down to a classic matchup of offense vs. defense. It’s the most potent offense lining up against the most relentless defense in a matchup that should be nothing short of epic, and one that carries a list of storylines, to boot. Don’t be the one person who didn’t know how to tune in, only to then be mocked at the water cooler the Monday after.
With the Chiefs and 49ers avoiding upsets rather effortlessly in the AFC Championship Game and NFC Championship Game, respectively, the two most dominant teams in the league will head to South Florida to fight for the right to lift this year’s Lombardi trophy.
Here’s what you need to know to not miss a second of the action, as the 2019 NFL season reaches its climax in fantastic fashion.
