2018-19 NFL Playoffs: Conference Championships and Pro Bowl TV and Announcer Schedule

The final four NFL teams of 2018-19 are set to play on Jan. 20. Both games feature rematches of highly competitive contests from the regular season.

First up, the Superdome in New Orleans will be the venue for the NFC Championship Game on Fox. The top two seeds of the conference – the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams – face off for the first time since Nov. 4 (Week 9) when the Saints had won 45-35. In the Divisional round on Jan. 12-13, the Rams beat the Dallas Cowboys 30-22 and the Saints escaped past the Philadelphia Eagles 20-14.

In prime time on CBS is the AFC Championship Game. The New England Patriots will play in the NFL-record eighth consecutive AFC title game and their thirteenth overall in the Tom Brady era (since 2001). This year, they’ll have to visit Arrowhead Stadium to play the top-seeded Kansas City Chiefs, the first time the storied arena will be hosting an AFC Championship Game in its 47-year history. The Patriots had defeated the Chiefs in Foxboro, Mass. 43-40 on Oct. 14 (Week 6) in one of the memorable editions of “Sunday Night Football” this season. In the Divisional round on Jan. 12-13, the Chiefs beat the Indianapolis Colts 31-13 and the Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Chargers 41-28.

The NFL will showcase the year’s all-star players in the annual Pro Bowl on Jan. 27 from Orlando, Florida, televised on ABC and ESPN.

  1. I don’t usually comment on any public forum on any subject, but I can’t hold my tongue any longer. Tony Romo SUCKS as an announcer. He repeats himself constantly. If I hear “man on man or mano a mano coverage” one more time,I’ll probably go insane! He also gets way too technical for the average fan. He adds little or no value to the game… And he’s NOT funny! When he starts going on about this formation or this play, then says “this must be or is probably” what so & so was thinking, I turn off the sound and listen on the radio. All I hear is blah blah blah… The sound affect of Charlie Browns teacher or mother talking on the cartoons! He’s even worse than Foust!
    The ONLY good thing about the season ending is I don’t have to listen to him any longer. I can only hope and pray that he’s not coming back next year.
    Someone should suggest he watch/listen to Aikman or Collinsworth during the off season. THEY ARE THE BEST!!
    Of course this is only my opinion, but every time I ask others about his performance…I get the same answer…” HE SUCKS!!! “. You must be hearing the same.
    Please, please make him stop!

  2. Could not agree more ! He’s awful. Too bad he’s not done for this season. CBS has the AFC champ game and the Super Bowl. Some athletes can pull off the broadcast thing really well, you mentioned my fav, Collinsworth on NBC. It is a shame that these guys are taking a job away from someone who actually went to school for this, and would have a degree in the field.
