Super Bowl dreams go on the line on ESPN as the final four teams left in the NFL Playoffs battle in out for the conference championships and a shot at the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The final two in the AFC and NFC will face off, with the winners securing their place at Super Bowl LV on February 8 AEDT.
 
ESPN Australia New Zealand will broadcast the blockbuster NFL Conference Championship double header on Monday January 25 AEDT.
 
The action begins at 7am AEDT as the Green Bay Packers host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the NFC Conference title.
 
Green Bay have been the best team in the NFC all season, securing the number one seed and home field advantage.
 
They eased past the Los Angeles Rams 32-18 in the divisional round.
 
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is having a sensational season and many NFL experts have him as the MVP elect.
 
However, he is facing the NFL Playoff GOAT in Tom Brady, who despite an 11-5 regular season record has the Buccaneers one game short of a home Super Bowl in Tampa Bay.
 
The Bucs’ fought their way to a 30-20 win over New Orleans Saints in the divisional round, despite the Saints having beaten them twice in the regular season.

Tom Brady has already seen off one QB nemesis Drew Brees, now he has an opportunity to add Aaron Rodgers to the list, and add another chapter to his storied NFL career.
 
The Packers and Buccaneers have already met once in 2020-21, with Tampa Bay prevailing 38-10 at home. It was one of just three losses for Green Bay all season.
 
Tampa Bay will be the visitors this time around, on a cold winter’s night at Lambeau Field. One of the most intimidating atmospheres in the National Football League.
 
The AFC Conference Title goes on the line at 10.30am AEDT, with reigning Super Bowl champions Kanas City meeting the Buffalo Bills.
 
Kansas City edged the Cleveland Browns 22-17 in the divisional round, but were made to close out the contest without star Patrick Mahomes.
 
Mahomes was forced out of the contest, following a concussion, and the Chiefs will be sweating on his fitness for the AFC showdown.
 
Bills Mafia is at a fever pitch in upstate New York, with Buffalo a chance to reach its first Super Bowl since 1994.
 
The Bills made it all the way to four straight Super Bowls between 1991-1994, but amazingly lost them all.
 
Buffalo have never won the Vince Lombardi Trophy, and the form of young quarterback Josh Allen has many feeling that this could finally be the year.
 
Boisterous Bills’ fans willed their team to a 17-3 victory over Baltimore in the divisional round, but Buffalo will not have that luxury in the Conference Championship game, as they go on the road.
 
Kansas City will start favourites in the AFC decider, courtesy of their number one seed in the division.
 
The Chiefs amassed at 14-2 record in the regular season, and as defending Super Bowl champions, they know what is required to get the job done at this time of year.
