NFL Conference Championships Roundup and Results

Last Updated on January 30, 2023 5:13 pm by Erwin Noguera

The NFL already knows who will be the two great finalists for the Super Bowl after the Conference Championships, the date on which the champion of the competition will be decided, and which will feature the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs.

Unfortunately for the 49ers, the injuries appeared again at the most critical moment of the season, this time just a step away from the Super Bowl. The result was 7 -31 in favor of the Philadelphia Eagles, who left their opponent with no options.

There were reasons to be confident in the Bengals’ victory at Arrowhead, as Mahomes was coming into the game with a sprained ankle, Burrow and his offense had overwhelmed the Bills in the Divisional Round, and the Chiefs had not been able to beat them in their last three head-to-head meetings. But the NFL does not understand favorites, and Kansas defeated Cincinnati by 20 to 23 (Casually, the same score with which they lost the last Super Bowl) and certified its pass to the final.

However the case, now we can say that both conference leaders fulfilled the expectations of going to the Super Bowl.

The Philadelphia Eagles qualified for the Super Bowl on Sunday by clinching the NFC championship with a 31-7 victory over an injury- and bad-luck-laden San Francisco 49ers.

After injuries to quarterbacks Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo during the regular season, San Francisco suffered again on Sunday with physical problems at quarterback. Rookie Brock Purdy took a brutal hit to his elbow and his replacement, Josh Johnson, had to leave the game with a concussion.

The Eagles, led by Jalen Hurts, will be playing in the Super Bowl for the first time since 2018 when they won against Tom Brady’s New England Patriots in one of the most impressive finals ever.

Hurts finished the NFC title game 15-of-25 passing for 121 yards and signed a touchdown via a carry (39 total rushing yards).

The Eagles relied most of their offense against San Francisco on the run, as all four touchdowns came via that route.

In addition to Hurts, Miles Sanders with two touchdowns and Boston Scott with a touchdown brought points on the scoreboard for the home team at a packed Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia with a fantastic atmosphere.

Result: Eagles (31) – (7) 49ers

The Chiefs qualified for the Super Bowl after defeating the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 in a game that will be a classic marked by a last-minute mistake. Now, Kansas City will face the Philadelphia Eagles in the game that will define the NFL champion.

Once again, Patrick Mahomes showed his greatness despite playing with an ankle injury that limited him and was visible at certain game moments. Still, in the end, the Chiefs knew how to overcome all adversity.

The game was balanced in development, with Joe Burrow making great plays. Still, it was not enough at times, as the Bengals’ offensive line could not protect him adequately, allowing some catches in decisive moments.

The Chiefs counted on an excellent game by Mahomes and a defense led by Steve Spagnolo that was practically impenetrable for the Bengals.

The game was tied at the end of the fourth quarter, and when everyone thought there would be overtime, a crazy play occurred. Well, Mahomes ran to a sideline and was trying to get off the field to stop the clock, but at that moment, Joseph Ossai committed a silly foul pushing the Chiefs quarterback. This gave the Chiefs 15 yards for Harrison Butker to score the field goal, giving them the pass to the Super Bowl.

Result: Chiefs (23) – (20) Bengals
