The NFL is reaching the final four in the 2023 playoff bracket. The Divisional Round is wrapping up and the AFC and NFC Championship matchups are just about settled. The Chiefs and Eagles won on Saturday while the Bengals thumped the Bills on Sunday. Next Sunday, the Chiefs will host the Bengals while the Eagles will host the winner of the final Divisional Round game between the 49ers and Cowboys.
The Bengals and Chiefs will see a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship Game. Cincinnati won that 27-24 in overtime, which coincidentally also was the final score of the Bengals home win over the Chiefs earlier this year. The Chiefs have opened as favorites against the Bengals, but we’ve seen considerable line movement in the 15 minutes since the game ended.
The 49ers and Eagles will face off in the NFC Championship Game. The Eagles beat the Giants handily on Saturday while the 49ers held off the Cowboys on Sunday. This is only the second time the 49ers and Eagles have met in the playoffs. San Francisco won 14-0 in the 1996 Wild Card Round.
